While receiving the Radcliffe Award at Harvard on Friday, Hillary Clinton told Maura Healey, the Attorney General of Massachusetts, that if she is in control of Facebook’s newsfeed, Americans will receive “the right kind of news” to ensure they make “the right decisions” during elections.
“Most people in our country get their news, true or not, from Facebook,” she said, explaining that the news read and shared by Americans on Facebook is the reason she lost the election. “It really is critical to our democracy that people get accurate information on which to make decisions.” (Source: yournewswire.com)
She was joking, of course, but in Dutch we have this proverb: ‘jokingly the lunatic says the truth’.
I personally think she would love to be CEO of Facebook AND run for president again, she would never be satisfied just being the CEO of a company, not even one such as Facebook that has a lot of power.
This lady is quite likely the most power-hungry person on the US political scene in the history of the country. She has no political convictions, she will just say anything that could get her elected.
For years and years we have Hillary seen trying to piece together a personality that the voters might like. She has utterly failed in this, she stands for nothing, she only represents Hillary Clinton, and repeats soundbites that she doesn’t believe in. She just seeks to ‘score’. I believe humans can detect the sincerity of a person in their tone of voice. If you compare Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton your gut feeling immediately tells you that Bernie truly cares about the issues he talks about and that Hillary is just trying to say whatever she hopes will resonate. I suppose that’s also why she lost against Trump. Trump knows infinitely less about the world and about politics or about anything except for golf and hookers than Hillary Clinton, but he sounded like he cared, he does stand for something, Hillary does not. She wishes she could know exactly what America wants to hear and she’d just say that.
Perhaps that’s why Facebook appeals to her so much. Being in control of Facebook is like being able to read everybody’s mind, to some extent.
Perhaps this lady should sit down and really get a list of all the online comments on her. They are nasty, and they are often factually true… and no, the Russians didn’t pay for those comments.
America doesn’t want you, lady, and that institutions choose to give you awards, doesn’t change the fact that most Americans simply see you as a hypocrite, spoilt, entitled, wanna be Queen they do not trust.
I have a troubled relationship with my Facebook account, but if she does become the CEO of Facebook (HIGHLY unlikely) I will delete my acccount immediately.
