    Ugh. Jesus. I’m sick of that smug face. Enough. Did you not realise how much you’re hated last year? You too, Clinton.

      1. M

        “Secretary Clinton.. Thank you for agreeing to do this interview. I want to start by asking you about Larry Nichols, who I understand was President Clinton’s right-hand man down in Arkansas in the 1980’s, he said, and I quote: ‘Bill told me that she was going out there (to California), she and a group of women, and she would be a part of a witch’s church. Man, when Bill told me that, you could have hit me with a baseball bat.’ So my question Senator Clinton is, a) are you a witch, and b) do you worship Satan?”

      1. MoyestWithExcitement

        I really don’t like her but that was a ridiculous moniker for someone who was running against a man with ties to the mafia, Russian gangsters and had to pay €25 million to settle a fraud case.

        1. bisted

          …Hillary was called crooked when there were several others running for the Democratic nomination and twice as many running for the Republican nomination…Trump didn’t win the election…she lost it and Trump is President by default…

        2. Brother Barnabas

          Trump was the one who came up with that. In March, he started with ‘Heartless Hilary’ but it didn’t catch. Couple of weeks later he first used ‘Crooked Hilary’. In tweets, interviews, rallies etc, he used it something like 200 times in 10 days. And then it started trending on Twitter. It was genius. If nothing else, he understands how branding works.

  2. Gorev Mahagut

    Lets hope he does better than McGregor managed against Mayweather. Although frankly, I’m not optimistic.

        1. bisted

          …how come she is not President…and wasn’t she the one who was crying loudest when Trump suggested before the election that he mightn’t accept the result…

      1. rotide

        If she won, she would be president.

        Trump is an oaf of the highest order but he won the election by the rules set out.

    1. Twunt

      So far she has blamed Bill, The DNC, Democrats, Republicans, Women, Blacks, Hispanics, Rednecks, The Media, Russia, Syria, Emails, FBI, her assistants and aids, the CIA and Barack Obama…..but not Crooked Hillary

  3. Vote Rep #1

    Imagine the terrible things she would have done compared to trump? The damage to racial tensions, the environment, trade, daring a loopy with nuclear weapons to do something. Bodger must be delighted.

    1. bisted

      …you don’t have to imagine too hard…she would certainly have got in deeper in Syria and Ukraine…a lot of people are alive today that may not have been had she got her finger on the buttons…many of those would have been American GIs…

    1. Amorphous Kerry Blob

      Ah Jaysus Clampers, you admit to posting a link to Milo Yiannopoulos there.*
      And today you were telling me your worldview was not influenced by that Alt Light crowd. Making me out as daft for suggesting such a thing. And in reality you’re posting links to the likes of MY.
      For feck sake. You’re such a liar.

      *In that link posted by Ivan.

      1. Clampers Outside!

        A liar? I’ve never even denied posting to Milo.

        Posting a link to Milo makes me an alt right Nazi.

        Oh Jaysus, are we back at this nonsense again?
        Who let this excuse for a bit. ear a keyboard…

        if you’re that good at digging you’ll find I’ve answered this before. That or talk to Nigel ( sorry Nigel, I can’t be arzed )

        1. Amorphous Kerry Blob

          I didn’t say that you were a nazi, but thanks for exaggerating/misrepresenting what I said in our last conversation.
          (Here’s an explainer for those kinds of logical fallacies, for anyone interested:

          As regards our actual conversation, posting links to the former king of the Alt Light would suggest that you’ve been influenced by the views of the Alt Light. Actually it does more than suggest, it proves it; unless you’re using said links as a form of critique of Milo.

          With regards the lovely way you’ve characterised me, I’ll just post a link to the conversation we had and let others decide.

          1. ahjayzis

            Christ. It’s like nailing jelly to a wall.

            *Comment after comment rowing in behind fascism.*

            *So you’re a fascist?*

            *HOW FUPPING DARE YOU!*

            Fascism isn’t an alternative viewpoint that requires respect, they lost that privilege. It’s an existential threat to millions.

          2. Brother Barnabas

            I don’t like the expression ‘nailing jelly to a wall’ and would prefer if you didn’t use it.

          3. Clampers Outside!

            Yes, let people see what nonsense you have spewed.

            And how you try and label people you dont like by making associations and assumptions, coupled with childish demands for more sources when I’ve given you the answer at the start, here I said, Broadsheet is where I discuss topics.

            But, you being some sort of simpleton-like-perpetually-offended-paranoid-loon keep demanding I produce some links so you can pounce in with your labels of alright / fascists or whatever…

            Or…… this is what happened.

            ” Where do you go to feel supported for having these views? ”

            I said I come here. You said you were not happy with my answer and took to making suggestions of you own. That’s when you made your own suggestions like 4chan and showed you weren’t in this to make genuine inquiry, but you were in it to make a point, because you believed something and wanted to prove it.

            Someone then posts a link to an earlier conversation where Milo, in a televised interview explains what the altright is.

            And that somehow, according to you makes me an alright supporter, and Nazi by association. FFS

            I guess SkyNews must be the propaganda machine for these Nazi alt righters.

            At least, according to your logic it would appear so. Your logic is more like that of the religiously superstitious variety

          4. MoyestWithExcitement

            Every alt right gobdaw denies they’re part of the alt-right. They want to champion alt right views but don’t want to be associated with the alt right. It’s as if they subconsciously know what they’re saying is morally wrong and intellectually stupid. There’s a prominent one on Twitter I’ve seen literally tweet nazi code words but denies being a racist and part of the alt-right. They know they’re wrong. They’re just fragile children rebelling against the parent that is polite society.

          5. Clampers Outside!

            No, you have made the association. With the association and the attempt to accuse me of hanging out in spaces with alrighters and Nazis…. and your now going to deny that wasn’t a yellow belied way of calling me one

            Hahahahaha….. who do you think your coddin’ darling. Yourself? as I doubt anyone else is dumb enough to swallow that pet.

            You stay in your bubble darling, consuming media and opinions that makes you feel good. I’ll be out in the real world.

          6. MoyestWithExcitement

            “and your now going to deny that wasn’t a yellow belied way of calling me one”

            I’m not denying that. You, pretty much suddenly, started using lots of alt right buzzwords. That is because you became very used to seeing them because you spend a lot of time reading alt right sites. That’s why you’re able to link to “studies” from so many lunatics. That’s where you’re finding them.

            “You stay in your bubble darling, consuming media and opinions that makes you feel good.”

            Yeah because you’re definitely not doing that when you’re reading “studies” blaming feminists for why you can’t get laid.

          7. ahjayzis

            Really well said Moyest.

            It’d be really interesting to chart Clampers descent into the mud over time with his comments here if anyone had the time and inclination. There’s a really noticeable arc of progression to a point where it’s almost totally alien looking, speaking someone else’s words almost. Words that come from one, discredited, evil worldview.

            It’s mad to see radicalisation in action like this.

          8. MoyestWithExcitement

            Yeah, he actually used to be alright. I took to him because, in a conversation with me, he was able to say that his feelings towards travellers were influenced by a bad incident he had with a traveller and that he knew those feelings were irrational and unfair to other travellers. That showed humility and self awareness and I respected him a lot for it. Now we can see, quite literally, 4 or 5 posts in a row from him, each 4 or 5 paragraphs long with lots of disjointed thinking and “HAHAHAHAHAHA” which makes him look properly demented and he says things like feminism is a political movement whose goal is the subjugation of men. And that multiculturalism has failed and is the cause of racism. Those crazy ideas have no basis in rational thought. They are only believed through affirmation from other like minded losers.

          9. Milo

            Yes, lets chart his descent, compile a file and then persecute like the self righteous, fascist liberal judge and jury that we are.

          10. Clampers Outside

            ” Words that come from one, discredited, evil worldview.

            It’s mad to see radicalisation in action like this. ”

            Your avatar has never been more apt, like some curtain twitching conspiracy loon :)

            – – – –

            ” he says things like feminism is a political movement whose goal is the subjugation of men. ”
            ….*splutter* you have some imagination Moyest. Never have, and never would say something as idiotic as you have just there. Thanks for the giggle.

            ” And that multiculturalism has failed and is the cause of racism. ” Now that is idiotic beyond belief , even for you Moyest.

            ” Those crazy ideas have no basis in rational thought. They are only believed through affirmation from other like minded losers. ” As you demonstrate here every day with your tendency towards lunatic accusations from your group think.

            That was fun reading Moyest, like a child’s fantasy monster creation! :)

    I heard Tubs gushing about her when he got back from the US last week. Today, from Belfast I think, he couldn’t pronounce Chappaqua or couldn’t remember what it was called when it wasn’t written in front of him. Half a week is a long time in radio, it seems.

  5. Pat-the-barker

    It’s lucky Tubs got the interview, she has a book out as well at the moment, do you think she will mention it Ted?

  6. Guy Bague

    She’d be perfect in Irish politics:

    * Dynastic narrative as justification
    * Overbearing sense of entitlement
    * No policies
    * Gender card at the ready
    * Couldn’t be bothered visiting places she doesn’t like and then wonders why she loses.
    * Private email server ideal for gmail accounts

  7. Guy Bague

    Question he won’t ask:

    “Is she going to visit Mr Weiner, her “other daughters” ex-husband in jail?”

    Anthony Weiner jailed for 21 months for sexting underage girl

    The investigation into Weiner’s sexting case played a role in last year’s 2016 presidential election, when authorities found emails on his laptop from Ms Abedin, who was a senior aide to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
    A separate FBI investigation into Mrs Clinton’s private use of email while she was secretary of state was closed after officials said nothing incriminating was found.

        1. Brother Barnabas

          Not a snowflake’s chance in hell *ahem* she would have agreed to be interviewed by Vincent Browne. A sycophantic toadie conducting a light-touch questions-and-answer session – questions all approved in advance – was what was ordered.

          1. TheRealJane

            You’re talking as though she would have known who VB is, or cared if she did.

            Look, she’s retired, this is a foreign country. Why would she be doing hostile searching interviews? She’s not going for office in this, or any, country.

            Clearly, this is supposed to be a soft interview. She wouldn’t, and shouldn’t, agree to anything else.

  8. Zoella

    Tubridy’s head must be spinning with all the mixed messages he seems to get. No one I know professes to like him – quite the contrary – yet, if you are to believe what he says on his radio show, everywhere he goes he is assailed by people looking for selfies with him. What’s the story?

    1. MoyestWithExcitement

      The man who presents a radio show and the country’s most famous talk show and who’s part of a Fianna Fail royal family from a posh part Dublin *might* be exaggerating a bit about how much people like him.

    2. Brother Barnabas

      Most of my comments are completely untrue, but this one isn’t – I actually see Tubs around 3 or 4 times a week. And I’ve never seen anyone approach him. And if that’s not scientific proof, I don’t know what it.

      1. Lilly

        I can add to that scientific proof BB. I occasionally see him on the pier, and have never seen anyone approach him either.

    I’m looking forward to watching this on the player(so I can fast forward through the rest of the usual nonsense) .

    Watching her squirm and lie and try to re-invent reality live on every TV show like Late Show with Colbert where he asked “what do you say to all thos people who say why don’t you just go away?” is quite something and shows the gigantic behemouth of a brass neck she has. One thing about her nobady can deny is that she is relentless at what she pursues, like the soon to be non-fictional “terminator” however good or bad the consequences.

    Hmmm.. she maybe the perfect political organism in human form like the sci-fi Alien creature that has acid for blood. I don’t think that’s being harsh when you consider the facts of her record.

    Hillary lost because her self-centred narcissistic and corrupt delaings have finally caught up with her. It was nothing to do with Trump although having had a black president( remember more wars than bush dynasty and kill lists?) for eight years has driven extreme right wing racism, bigotry and now sexism in the US to galvanise together against; one -the democrats, two -women, three any clinton, four -hillary herself, five -the status quo which is what she represents 100%. Deals for everybody but the public. It was always going to be a Rublican candidate anyway, no matter how mentally retarded, inept, incompetant, unqualified etc. as we have witnessed once again because it is not a new phenomenon, just another cycle.

    The US president doesn’t really matter as much as people think it does. All that matters is that it’s good for corporate business in the US because like Hillary would have, Trump will do deals with anyone on either side as long as he gets a slice of the action. All at the expense of the enviroment, regulation in all it’s forms, proper taxation(of the ultra wealthy) etc. etc. Corporate America does not care as long as they can tolerate him because he has no morals along with no clue what he’s doing but again this is not a phenomenon as presidents are all different versions of the same thing…

    A faux royal family for the foolish masses to stare at and swallow the nationalistic war posturing rhetoric and for lazy journalists to write about incessantly instead of investigating real issues like policy and the history of policies that have repeatedly failed before, i.e. IT’S A MAJOR DISTRACTION FROM REALITY.

    It’s fun to watch her attempt a PR campaign with her new device(or devisive tool) in a book called “WHAT HAPPENED”. It’s a title so retarded or actually so clever if wholly intentional. It reminds me of signs in the US that just state the word “JESUS” in large bold black letters on a bright yellow backround standing fifty feet high that simultaneously states too much and too little at the same time, if you know what I mean?

    Anyway, I robbed that last bit from the same person, a political commentator, intellectual etc. who gives a very funny account of who Hillary Rodham really is and why she deserves to have failed. I would agree and add that it was the best result for women in the long run. A real woman will get elected eventually not that I’m a neo-feminist sympathiser or whatever else in terminology has been completely turned upside down lately in terms of thoughts, ideas, philosophy and meaning… I think Elizabeth Warren is playing the long game like a pro but ultimately populist cult of personality candidates are all the same… either greedy for power or will be corrupted by the flawed system either way.

    Anyway, I digress… even further…
    Everything Hitch said about Hillary

    Clinton supporters, here’s a really good song to make you feel better, enjoy.


  10. :-Joe

    BTW: Whenever she blabs on and on about her love for Ireland and her thanks for how our state supports the US she is talking about how we facilitated the US war machine with their illegal rendition flights through shannon airport from the middle east to the illegal guantanamo bay torture and prison camp.

    State department (Shy)Hawks will be (shy)hawks….
