Hillary Clinton Campaign so far …
A running list. Updated at will.
You know the type:
While the revelation that Hillary Clinton failed to leave a tip during her stop at a Chipotle earlier this week fell flat — few customers tip at the fast-casual Mexican restaurant — a deeper look at the former First Lady’s tipping habits shows she does have a history of stiffing people who depend on tips to make ends meet.
From her days as First Lady to her Senate candidacy to her first run for president, Clinton made news for failing to compensate a Florida hair stylist and two waitresses.
Powerful/lawyer woman who is a $hitty tipper? It’s a TYPE, people.
The Scooby-Doo road trip was apparently one way, as Hillary mixes with the hoi-poloi to fly home. Sorta. It’s about OPTICS, people:
Hillary’s handlers have been trying to reposition her as an ‘everywoman’ eager to meet with ordinary people.
But her first Iowa event, promoted as a spontaneous coffee shop sit-down with average voters, turned out to be a carefully staged production whose young participants were driven to the cafe by Clinton’s Iowa political director.
At least three of the ‘everyday Americans’ featured in Hillary’s campaign launch video have ties to Democratic Party politics.
And hours before her flight, Secret Service agents parked the now-familiar ‘Scooby’ van in a handicapped spot so she would have a shorter walk.
On Thursday a Vox reporter photographed Hillary at Omaha’s Eppley Field airport, holding on to her own rollaboard luggage and talking with a member of the public.
But while she boarded the plane like everyone else, she didn’t disembark that way: Afellow passenger tweeted a photo of the Town Car sedan – and police escort – that awaited her in Newark on the airport tarmac.
We can only carry these charades so far.
Campaign staff recruited and DROVE ‘everyday’ Iowans to Hillary’s first campaign stop — including health care ‘lobbyist in training’ who was an Obama campaign intern and Biden chauffeur
Austin Bird sat for coffee on Tuesday morning in the town of LeClaire, Iowa, chatting with Hillary Clinton as photographers snapped pictures
News reports called him a ‘student’ and her campaign called it an unscripted event
But Clinton’s Iowa political director Troy Price drove Bird and two other people to the coffee house
Bird is a hospital government relations official who interned with Barack Obama’s 2012 presidential campaign
The Iowa Democratic Party, which Price ran until a week ago, tasked him to be Joe Biden’s driver during an October Senate campaign trip in Davenport.
