Former Secretary of State and failed presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, recently started showing her face again after her book, titled What Happened, hit shelves. It didn’t take long for her “political comeback” to turn into one of the funniest interviews of all time.
During an interview on MSNBC with Rachel Maddow, a series of awkward statements and events turned what was meant to be a serious interview into a joke. Hillary managed to say that South Korea is “within miles” of the North Korean border. Later, her interview was oddly interrupted by a sneezing panda. Even Democrats were left scratching their heads in confusion after this interview.
First, Hillary started on President Trump, and how she believes he is doing a terrible job handling the situation in North Korea. She started by saying that President Trump has somehow “basically insulted and attacked South Korea.”
The insinuation is that since Trump is fighting back against North Korea’s threats, he is putting South Korea in danger. She didn’t bother explaining what she would have done if the dictator-run country would have threatened to nuke the United States if she was president.
Instead of acting like she takes any of this seriously, she made herself look like a fool. Clinton stated, “South Korea is literally, you know, within miles of the border with North Korea. They would be so at risk if something were done by Kim Jong-un.”
Apparently, South Korea is miles away from the North Korean border. You can’t help but wonder if Clinton failed Geography because it is common knowledge, or at least it should be, that the two are connected.
Clinton did not bother correcting her own mistake, nor did Maddow dare to disagree with the failed candidate. It was at this point that things got even stranger.
At the conclusion of a commercial break on MSNBC, Maddow came back and let everyone know, “My interview with Secretary Hillary Clinton is subject to an interruption because of this important video of a sneezing panda.”
The footage then cut away and Maddow narrated an event that went viral, showing a clip that features a baby panda sneezing. After the sneeze, you can see the mother panda jump and get scared.
Maddow then tells Hillary that one of the things that people love about her new book is her “human nature.” Maddow went so far as to say that people are “obsessed” with it.
This all was supposed to tie into Clinton’s new book. Maddow proceeded to read from the book, directly from a passage where Clinton talks about pandas, and how people love to watch them play with their kids and eat bamboo.
Apparently, the connection they were attempting to make is that Hillary thinks people are interested in the “mundane aspects of her life,” much like people enjoy watching videos of pandas sneezing. It is not entirely clear what they were getting at. Clinton closed the segment by saying that she was going to embrace people’s questions and tell them what she had for breakfast so they could get “a little bit of satisfaction that they know me better than they thought they did.”
