Is Hillary Clinton in “pant suit code red” these days as her popularity in the polls heads south? After hearing Clinton bark like a dog to make a bizarre point, this is what a Fox News quest suggested on Tuesday morning.
Clinton offered up a strange comparison with a barking dog and the Republican party, which came via a quip from one of her favorite radio commercials that was created around a dog trained to bark at lies. This journey down memory lane left the former Secretary of State literally barking like a dog as she delivered the strange ending to this story. This has made her the target of ridicule and jokes today, but didn’t she realize this would happen?
According to CNN News on February 16, Clinton shared that the commercial played in rural Arkansas when her husband, Bill Clinton was running for office. She launched into the meaning behind the commercial by first saying how “(Republicans) actually, with a straight face, say that the great recession was caused by too much regulation on Wall Street. They actually say that.”
The she offers up the commercial explanation saying:
“One of my favorite political ads of all time was a radio ad in rural Arkansas where the announcer said, ‘Wouldn’t it be great if somebody running for office said something, we could have an immediate reaction to whether it was true or not. Well, we have trained this dog. Well, the dog, if it is not true, he is going to bark,'” Clinton said. “And the dog was barking on the radio and so people were barking at each other for days after that.”
She then continues with, “I want to figure out how we can do that with Republicans. We need to get that dog and follow them around and every time they say these things like, ‘Oh, the Great Recession was caused by too much regulation,’ arh, arh, arh, arh.” She was barking, really! Clinton threw her head back very similar to what a dog would do while howling and she let out the barking sound.
ABC News reports that after her barking episode, she told the crowd that the could cut through a lot of the Republican claims if they used a barking dog like they did in the commercial. Isn’t this bizarre coming from a woman who has been accused of telling tales herself in the past, like being under fire coming in for a landing in a helicopter?
What was even more bizarre was through the laughter from the audience, you could actually hear other people barking like a dog, mimicking the presidential candidate. It is almost as if someone said to her, Hillary, you have to let your hair down and tell a few jokes to soften that air of stiffness you have about you.
Clinton, who seems to do everything to excess apparently decided barking like a dog would somehow appeal to her supporters. Instead this appeared to backfire making Hillary looking so desperate that she took and chance at mortifying herself barking like a dog. Her face is all over TV today with “Who Let the Dogs Out” playing in the background.
