Aside from the blatant disregard for any kind of journalistic objectivity, The India Group’s enabling of Hillary Clinton in front of a friendly crowd in Mumbai gave her yet another opportunity to whine about and bash those who had the audacity of not voting for her.
How much she was paid to receive the fawning praise has yet to be readily disclosed but if her past is any clue, it was probably close to a quarter of a million dollars.

While saying nothing new, she did follow in the footsteps of many who’ve assumed their words overseas would receive limited attention back home. And are these so-called Dem operatives really angry because of what Hillary said and how it may hurt them in future elections or that she made public and official what they’ve been saying privately?
She should have paid more attention to where she placed her feet.
Former United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton today picked injuries in her hand during her visit to Rajasthan’s Jodhpur and had to cancel some of her programmes as a result, officials said. She was staying at the Umaid Bhawan Palace here and a team of doctors from a private hospital nearby was sent there to examine her.
The doctors said the Democratic Party candidate in the 2016 US presidential polls had a sprain in her hand and was given required treatment. They advised her rest. The Mehrangarh Fort authorities said her programme to visit the fort was cancelled due to the injuries and she might visit there tomorrow morning.

We can all imagine what the media would be saying today if Donald Trump had documented difficulty in standing upright.
Hillary Clinton concealed her injured wrist under a navy shawl three days after fracturing it during a fall in India. The former Secretary of State injured her right hand on Tuesday after slipping in a bathtub at the palace where she was staying in Jodhpur. Doctors were called to the Umaid Bhawan Palace and diagnosed the 70-year-old with a sprain, advising her to rest which forced her to cancel plans to visit the Mehrangarh Fort that evening.

Imagine if the “should-be president” was elected president.
How much could the United States withstand Hillary constantly falling down politically and physically?
