This is a short video, but one that is so telling about just how out of touch Hillary Clinton has become with her voter base.
Standing on the stage are Hillary Clinton, Bill De Blasio, and an African American man in a colonial costume.
“Thanks for the endorsement, Bill… Took you long enough.” Hillary says to Blasio. This is not a joke, it is simply a statement of entitlement from Hillary. However, the crowd still erupts in forced pathetic laughter and the house drummer plays her a sad rim shot.
What Bill De Blasio says next, is one of the bigger gaffes that I have heard during this election cycle. One that will undoubtedly be dismissed and forgotten by Hillary’s fanatic supporters.
“Sorry Hillary… I was on C.P. time.” At first, there are one or two laughs from people who don’t understand, then gasps and hushed silence, and then some boos.
In case you didn’t know, C.P. time stands for “colored people time.” A joke that African Americans, as a whole, are lazy and constantly late. A joke made by the two elderly white politicians.

The African American actor says “I don’t like jokes like that.” Hillary looks annoyed that he is even speaking to her, but replies “cautious politician time… I’ve been there.” It was all a joke, written in the poorest of taste. Especially considering that a cornerstone of Hillary’s support comes from the African American community and other minority groups.
The Republican Party would never make a joke like this and if they did it would be blasted on the 24-hour news cycle all week and be the biggest talking point of all the Sunday news shows. However, I fully expect this to get little to no recognition from the press.
Hillary is dangerously out of touch and this is further proof of how bad a president she would make. Don’t worry, when she gets asked about this, she will just laugh it off too, like everything else.
