Columbia University’s new ad promoting a part-time teaching gig for Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of State under Barack Obama, is facing criticism for being tone-deaf and overlooking her role in destabilization operations in the Middle East.
The promo plays off the prospect the two-time failed presidential candidate is again “running” for president, however instead she’s just eager to fill her new role as Professor of Practice at the School of International and Public Affairs.
Many will recall the severe destruction caused by the Obama administration’s intervention in Libya, which resulted in chaos after the overthrow of the Muammar Gaddafi regime. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton famously remarked, “We came, we saw, he died.”
Everything I needed to know about US global hegemony, I learned from this clip of @HillaryClinton.

Similarly, US drone strikes aimed at countering the Al Qaeda-linked al-Shabaab militant group in Somalia led to numerous civilian casualties.
Despite her terrible track record, which includes a mishandling of the US government’s response to an attack on a US consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead, Hillary says she plans to impart her “expertise” to college students.
“I’ll cover what it was actually like in the room during the Bin Laden raid, the Iran sanction, the Gaza ceasefire, you name it.”
Clinton’s impending teaching gig was mocked and roundly criticized by many on social media.
I will never understand the mindset (derangement, really) of these supposedly intelligent people who keep trying to make light of, and put lipstick on, this repugnant megalomaniacal warmongering criminal of a PIG, who is incapable of taking a hint, much less no for an answer.

Embarrassing. Sad. Plain awful.
But what difference, at this point, does it make?
