The left loves to go bat guano crazy over what they like to refer to as “white privilege.” It is their myth that white people get special benefits in this society because of their race.
If you want to go after a real privilege, how about going after Clinton Privilege. What is Clinton privilege? It is the special way Hillary Clinton is treated, particularly by the media. There is a stunning example of that that has popped up in the last few days.
What is it?
In the last couple of days, a photograph has emerged of Hillary Clinton being helped up the stairs of a house in South Carolina. Hillary Clinton is 68 years old. In the photo, she looks like an 88 year old woman.
Rumors about Clinton’s health continue to swirl, including new photos that purported show a physician walking with Clinton, with an anti-seizure injection pen ready to help Clinton if needed.
The photo, that was taken by a photographer with Getty Images made the rounds but there was something about that photo that most people missed. The photo wasn’t brand new. It was taken in February in South Carolina, while Clinton was campaigning there.
Think about the timing of that photo. It was right in the middle of the Bernie Sanders surge. The Democrat National Committee was doing its best to help Clinton defeat the 74 year old Communist. This kind of photo might have had a huge impact on voters. Clinton’s health, as the health of any presidential candidate, should be a major campaign issue.
Yet the media is mostly silent.
Arguably the media buried this story.
Clinton’s health is a huge problem for her and the campaign. In recent years, she has fallen several times. She suffered a concussion and a blood clot to the brain. She has instances of uncontrolled coughing and there is a video shot a few weeks ago that make it look like she had some kind of seizure while speaking to the media.
The media will not talk about Clinton’s health. It is just another bit of bad news about Hillary that gets swept down the memory hole. The media will not talk about Benghazi, nor will they talk about the Clinton Foundation or the email scandal.
And they won’t talk about putting someone in the White House whose health is arguably as bad as Franklin Roosevelt’s health was in 1944.
After all, if they talked about any of those things, it might hurt Hillary’s campaign. If the media had talked about those things this spring, Hillary Clinton might not be the nominee today.
Talk about Clinton privilege.
