Hillary Clinton, well over a year after she lost the 2016 election to President Trump, is less popular than ever, according to a poll released this week. Only 27 percent of those polled had a very or somewhat positive view of the former secretary of state, according to The Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll. That makes her less popular than President Trump, whose popularity registered at 35 percent. It is a new low for her in the poll, which clocked her popularity at 30 percent in August 2017. A Journal analysis of the poll notes that the poll is a reminder of “just how unusual” Clinton is in terms of her unpopularity — even among recent losing presidential nominees who have typically experienced a post-election decline, but not to the extent Clinton has. At the time of the election, 40 percent had a positive view of her. While Clinton and Trump now both have similar levels of unpopularity (52 and 53 percent, respectively), her lower positive rating means Clinton’s favorability gap is wider. Trump, meanwhile, has faced a rocky first year as president overshadowed by constant controversies including a wide-ranging investigation by FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Clinton has stayed on the political stage. She has set up the political action organization Onward Together and released a lengthy campaign post-mortem titled, “What Happened.” She went on a speaking tour coinciding with the book’s release and has made numerous additional appearances discussing her 2016 loss. Yet the scandals that dogged her throughout the campaign have not gone away. The question of her email use when she served as secretary of state is still in the spotlight as the FBI’s handling of the probe itself is under scrutiny. And Trump has continued to launch the occasional attack on his former election rival. This week, Trump used former FBI Director James Comey’s book launch to again call Clinton “crooked.” “[Comey’s] handling of the Crooked Hillary Clinton case, and the events surrounding it, will go down as one of the worst ‘botch jobs’ of history,” he tweeted. Earlier this month, Clinton said in a speech that she was focused on the upcoming midterm elections. “My goal is to take back the House and the Senate,” she said.
Take a moment and digest what that self-righteous, sanctimonious, entitlement-minded, arrogant, liberal elitist just said.. She said HER “goal is to take back the House and Senate.” …kinda like it’s hers. Note that she didn’t say that her goal is to help Democrats win elections. No. She said it almost as if it’s her House and her Senate. Make no mistake.. She used to be a lawyer, and is very clear in the language she uses. Such arrogance!! But, it’s typical for Hillary..and more and more people are just sick and tired of her. Many prominent Dems have even said publicly they wish she’d just go away, and don’t want her anywhere near them in an election year. We expect her poll numbers to continue to decline.
In recent days, The New Yorker has made some downright scurrilous accusations about Chick-fil-A, the unofficial chicken of our Lord. The magazine warned that the beloved fast food restaurant was waging a “guerrilla insurgency” upon Gotham’s citizenry – plotting to evangelize the city by luring the masses with plump, juicy chicken breasts tucked between hot, buttered buns. “The brand’s arrival here feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Christian traditionalism,” lamented Dan Piepenbring in an essay titled “Chick-fil-A’s Creepy Infiltration of New York City.” Piepenbring seemed terribly disturbed by the news that a fourth outpost of the family-owned chain had recently opened – as if the Chick-fil-A Cows were about to stampede through the East Village. “Its headquarters, in Atlanta, are adorned with Bible verses and a statue of Jesus washing a disciple’s feet,” he wrote. “Its stores close on Sundays.” And like any progressive journalist, he offered up the obligatory Chick-fil-A is “anti-gay” smear. Untrue, of course, but whatever. “The restaurant’s corporate purpose still begins with the words ‘to glorify God,’ and that proselytism thrums below the surface of the Fulton Street restaurant, which has the ersatz homespun ambiance of a megachurch,” he wrote. And he was especially wary of the famed Chick-fil-A Cows. “If the restaurant is a megachurch, the Cows are its ultimate evangelists,” Piepenbring declared. Well, praise the Lord and drink some sweet tea! “Its politics, its décor, and its commercial-evangelical messaging are infected with this suburban piety,” he wrote. Well, America – the time has come for you to know the truth. The New Yorker caught us red-handed. The jig is up. The truth is months ago a covert team of specially trained Southern Christians crossed the Mason-Dixon Line along with a herd of grammatically-challenged bovines. Our mission was to convert the Yankee heathens with gracious Southern hospitality and delicious chicken sandwiches. And our plan would’ve worked had it not been for those meddling members of the Mainstream Media. After about a week of eating fried chicken and drinking sweet tea, New Yorkers had become so much more pleasant and docile. Brooklynites had even started waving at tourists with all five fingers instead of one. Now, that is the power of the Gospel Bird. So let not your heart be troubled, America – because glory, glory hallelujah – the War of Poultry Aggression rages on.
HAHAHA!! That was EXCELLENT! Thanks to veteran culture warrior Todd Starnes for that witty op/ed in support of Chick-fil-A, which is about to overtake Taco Bell as the third most popular fast food restaurant in America….and that’s with it being closed nationwide one day week! This idiot pin-head from The New Yorker has just exposed himself for being the anti-Christian bigot that HE is. Chick-fil-A doesn’t discriminate in its hiring practices and welcomes everyone regardless of race, religion (or lack thereof), gender, age, etc. It’s just closed on Sundays. That’s all! How an employee spends the day off is her/her business. The owner/founder of the company decided when he founded Chick-fil-A that he wanted his business closed on Sundays so he and his employees could go to church, if they wanted to. If they didn’t want to, and wanted to do something else, or nothing at all, then that was their prerogative. Imagine that! But this idiot writer at The New Yorker can’t handle it. He’s just a foaming at the mouth liberal who hates Christians. Kudos to Todd for calling him out on his hypocritical bigotry. Outstanding! 🙂
