If you’ve never found yourself thinking, “I need more Hillary Clinton in my life,” you are not alone. If you’re like Bill Clinton and actively wishing for les Hillary in your life, I’ve got some bad news for you – she has a TV show coming out. It’s on Apple TV and you don’t have to watch it, of course, but in many ways you will not be able to escape it. “Gutsy” is the title of the show, but it really should be called “Payoff.” It’s the show no one outside of Apple wanted, and if you’re a shareholder you’re paying for it.
Honestly, what the hell is wrong with our culture now? There was a time when politicians would leave office and disappear from the public eye. There was this little thing called dignity that mattered to people. Also, politicians weren’t interested in being celebrities and the media covered them only when they were relevant (meaning in power). Now late night “comedy” shows are year-round Democratic National Conventions, formerly regular television shows shoehorn in storylines about whatever the latest “victim group” Democrats are favoring at that moment like they’re common and not rarer than a unicorn sighting.
Now we’re being offered a show of Hillary and Chelsea Clinton interviewing crazy left-wing women polling indicates people are interested in hearing from.
Okay, maybe I’m too cynical, but that’s sure as hell what it looks like to me. The women they are profiling, or whatever they’re doing, are about as current and relevant as, well, Hillary and Chelsea are. When was the last time anyone wondered what Amy Schumer was up to? Seven years? Roughly the last time she was remotely funny. Same goes for Wanda Sykes, except she hasn’t been funny for even longer. Then there are the standard dinosaurs they have to toss in like Gloria Steinem and Jane Goodall (because the world needs another slobbering profile of those two).
Of course, Kim Kardashian makes the list, because you can’t have too many profiles of someone whose rise to fame came from a homemade porno and followed it up with a willingness to do what was on that video to sell anything for a buck. There’s the ubiquitous drag queen, someone called “Symone,” because no one admires drag queens more than Hillary Clinton, or something. (Anyone believe for a second she gives a single damn about drag queens or trans people? Aside from that female 2 Live Crew song Megan Thee Stallion was a part of a couple of years ago, I have no idea what that person does. Then again, I have no idea what Chelsea Clinton does, aside from being the daughter of Hillary and a dead-ringer for Webster Hubbell (seriously, look it up for yourself).
Why is this being made? Because Hillary can’t leave the stage and Chelsea has nothing to offer the world other than her last name, so they’ve going to milk their “fame” for every last dollar they possibly can.
The entertainment media, the only media living further up the rear ends of leftists than the political media, can’t help themselves in promoting this pile of garbage.
Entertainment Weekly, part of the media that covered up for progressive predators of young actors and actresses, ran a story on the Clintons entitled, “A Gutsy move: Hillary and Chelsea Clinton get real on their new TV series.” The sub-headline is equally hilarious, “Long the subject of media scrunity (sic), the Clintons turn the spotlight on bold, brave women making positive change in the world — and reveal an unexpected side of themselves in the process.”
That’s a deeper, wetter kiss than Bill ever gave any of his mistresses or conquests. I’m embarrassed for them.
The show premieres September 9th, so get ready for a non-stop onslaught of pro-Clinton drooling. You likely won’t watch, but like I said, you also won’t be able to escape it.
This is how the world works now: Democrats never go away, they simply transition from “public service” to profit-making enterprises. You can’t call it an ex post facto bribe, it’s more of a loyalty program – either payment for services rendered to keep current politician in line or, well, that’s probably it. The rich liberals get richer, disagreement on the left goes the way of the Dodo, and Republicans get investigated by the Justice Department. As we slide to banana republic territory it’s only fitting that Hillary Clinton be crowned the potassium queen. (Watch the trailer for their show and tell me I’m wrong.)
