No Explanation For Why Hillary Clinton Disappeared From Democratic Debate

Early in Saturday’s democratic debate, Hillary Clinton simply disappeared. ABC News took a commercial break and when they came back, Hillary was gone. Kind of weird thing to happen in a major presidential debate, don’t you think? Even stranger is the fact that no one, not ABC not the DNC not the Clinton Campaign, has offered a reason why.

I actually forgot the debate was even on. Who puts a debate on Saturday night opposite NFL football and Ash vs. The Evil Dead? When I flipped the channel over I got there just in time to hear moderator David Muir say, “We believe Secretary Clinton will be coming around the corner any minute.”

Then there was a shot of the stage with a noticeable absence. Socialist kook Bernie Sanders was on the left, doofus nobody Martin O’Malley was on the right, but the center podium was empty. It seemed very odd.

Muir began asking Sanders a question about how he intends to bring socialism to the US, when suddenly there was some sarcastic cheering from the crowd. Hillary walked back onto the stage to her podium and said “sorry” into the microphone. And that was it. Absolutely no explanation for her disappearing act.

Scouring the web, nobody has a reason why Clinton went missing either. Luckily I’m here with some wild speculation. Somebody has to get to the bottom of this.

I think the first most obvious explanation comes from Clinton aide Huma Abedin, who let it be known that Hillary is “often confused.”Clinton is no spring chicken and the mind tends to go when a person reaches an advanced age. Maybe Hillary just thought the debate was over and was headed for her limo or perhaps she went back stage and simply forgot where she was.

On the day, he condemns Trump,  he shows up in his "Jihad John" beard, Solidarity???   His being the biggest Judas to ever serve in Congress.    The man will live in "The Hall of Shame".  His name will go down with Roberts, as being the largest Betrayals, in American History.   He, alone, will be the cause of the collapse of the GOP, and I am sure as he embraces Obama, he's very happy with himself.    I hope he rots in Hell.

ALERT ALERT

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
