No Hils, you’re no Wonder Woman

Hillary Clinton has learned nothing from losing the election. She’s still living life in one of two modes.

She’s either running around waving a sign that reads, ‘Victim’.

Or, she’s attempting one last time to hop onto and ride coattails to garner some success.

Perhaps, then, it should come as no surprise that she’s boarded the Wonder Woman jet.

Of course, she hasn’t actually seen the superhero blockbuster. That doesn’t matter; just ask Andrew O’Keefe about how much he enjoyed watching The Red Pill before interviewing the director, Cassie Jaye.

However, Clinton would have heard the chatter about Wonder Woman’s immense box office success. Short of claiming she wrote it, stared in it, directed and produced it, she’s done the next best thing. She’s relating the film to herself.

Ah, self-reflection. That will win you elections.

On Tuesday night, a video message of her was played at the Women in Film Los Angeles’ Crystal + Lucy Awards.

Let’s ignore once again, at this point, all the success that female director Cassie Jaye scooped with The Red Pill.

In the video Clinton says, “I haven’t seen Wonder Woman yet, but I’m going to, in part because it’s directed by the fabulous Patty Jenkins. But something tells me that a movie about a strong, powerful woman fighting to save the world from a massive international disaster is right up my alley.”

The movie will make $US250 million by the end of this week. What makes her think it needs her endorsement?

She hasn’t even seen it. It’s not a political film or a political coup; stop trying to hop onto its coattails.

Hillary, you have nothing to do with the movie, you are not strong, and you did not save the world.

Actually, you did. By playing elitist gender politics and bathing in your own ego you lost the election and saved the world from having you as president. Still, you are no wonder woman.
