“You say the peasants are revolting? Of course they are. And they smell bad, too.”
Fifty Hillary supporters had to be treated for heat illnesses after having to stand outside in the extreme heat waiting 90 minutes for Hillary. Some had to be taken somewhere on stretchers to cool their bodies off. Being late has been a regular thing for Clinton since announcing her candidacy. She was late in Benghazi, too. Hillary was 90 minutes late getting to the Columbus, Ohio event, where she spoke for 21 minutes. (That’s $225,000 in Goldman Saxon)
The Clinton-Kaine rally, which was scheduled for 2:45 p.m. ET, did not start until almost 4:20 p.m. During that time, thousands of supporters endured temperatures in the high 80s while waiting outside the Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center in Columbus.
According to The Toledo Blade, after arriving late, Clinton delivered remarks lasting 21 minutes. Running mate Tim Kaine’s speech was 15 minutes.
Earlier in the day, Clinton and Kaine were busy with other stops on their post-convention bus tour.
On Sunday morning, Clinton stopped in Cleveland Heights to surprise the congregation at the Imani Temple Ministry. Her entourage also stopped in Ashland for ice cream on the way to her afternoon rally, the Mansfield News Journal reported.
The Clinton campaign did not respond to a request for comment.
So, she was late because she was buying ice cream while her supporters suffered? “Let them eat Fudgie the Whale cake” she said.
Party tardy, Hillary.
