Clinton deletes email containing Russia’s shortlist of candidates for NSC director
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rightwing political pundits went into overdrive Wednesday as the White House confirmed that President Hillary Rodham Clinton had deleted another email, this time a message from the Kremlin with a list of people they suggest Clinton appoint to the National Security Council.
The Russians' message was conveyed to the White House via the personal email account of former Goldman Sachs partner Steve Bannon.
Clinton's defiant move aggravated Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, who allegedly slapped his lead intelligence officers multiple times for “failing to hoist our oompa loompa piss-loving comrade Trump into office.”
Putin's puppet candidate, failed GOP candidate Donald Trump, lost the election to Clinton in a 3 million vote landslide last November.
As the story about Clinton deleting Putin's email ricocheted around the Internet, some key Republican players seemed crippled by unpleasant flashbacks to the 2016 presidential campaign.
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee had to be kicked off an interview on Faux News after repeating the same word over and over again, much like a short-circuiting machine: “Emails Emails Emails Emails Emails Emails…”
Meanwhile, failed presidential candidate Donald Trump also spoke out, tweeting: “Unbelievable, just unbelievable. Putin is a great man. That nasty woman couldn’t even RESPOND to the email? Rude & SAD! What is she trying to hide from Kremlin?”
New York Times columnist Paul Krugman said Clinton's rejection of Russia's NSC director shortlist seems consistent with the Clinton administration's "thoughtful, clear, and America-centric foreign policy."
