Hillary Clinton has long been known as a chameleon. Clinton, with the exception of some of her more onerous policies – i.e gun control, war, banker affiliation etc. – is willing to have one position on Monday and another one Monday afternoon when it comes to wedge issues and those discussions which are seen largely as belonging to a specific group of people. Thus, that position changes depending on what audience she is catering to. Clinton’s personality, tone, and presentation change with the audience.
While this is not surprising given that Clinton is a politician, what is surprising is that Clinton’s epic fails in her attempts to be portrayed as “just like the common man (or woman)” have not earned her more ridicule than they actually have. Indeed, it is surprising that Hillary at her most phony is still able to fool the members of the audience watching her speeches despite her poor attempts at mimicking the behavior, cadence, and colloquialisms of the “lower classes.”
Consider one of the most hilarious incidents of Hillary’s mimicking fails, a campaign trip to Kentucky where she attempted to pick up a southern accent mixed with black vernacular and colloquial speech, conveniently for an audience that was both southern and black. Clinton’s rendition of both of these styles was so terrible it should have made everyone in the room cringe. Clinton sounded neither black nor southern as she slashed and shrieked her way through a quote of James Cleveland’s “I Don’t Feel Noways Tired.”
Clinton’s horrible southern accent improved somewhat for her trip to South Carolina, where she was able to make jokes about coloring her hair to an audience supporting her campaign.  This time her target was the stereotypical “southern woman” since the campaign event was taking place in Columbia, South Carolina. Improving from the Kentucky speech, however, is not to give credit for being good. It was an atrocious outing and should have been insulting to anyone in the audience. “I’m aware I may not be the youngest candidate in this race, but I have one advantage: I’ve been coloring my hair for years. They are not going to see me turn white in the White House — and you’re also not going to see me shrink from a fight,” she said.
Never to take second place to anyone when it comes to the question of qualifications, Hillary was apt to point out that, since all of her grandparents were immigrants, she was the most qualified to speak on the question of illegal immigration in 2015. The problem, however, was that her claims were easily debunked as only one of her grandparents was a documented (meaning confirmed) immigrant.
Clinton’s attempts at mimicking the accents, physical characteristics, and social positions of the audiences to which she speaks falls right into line with her psychopathic nature. After all, psychopaths are excellent mimickers of human behavior. Despite the fact that rational people who think critically would be able to see through Clinton’s gaffes, the truth is that such stupidity more often than not resonates with the average person. The members of Clinton’s audiences, as one can see from the videos, simply ate her performances up.
Whenever one discusses the myriad of falsehoods told by Hillary, it would be difficult to forget to mention the famous Bosnia Sniper story repeated numerous times during interviews and campaign speeches.
This now famous “sniper” incident took place when Clinton was campaigning in the Democratic primary against Barack Obama and was attempting to portray herself as more experienced in foreign policy than he. She then relied on a 1996 trip to Bosnia to demonstrate her experience and bravery. Her statements generally followed the same line.
For instance, on March 17, 2008, she stated, "I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”
She also told CNN around the same time, “There was no greeting ceremony and we were basically told to run to our cars. Now that is what happened."
Of course, the story was a complete fabrication. Details of the event as well as video revealed there were never any snipers. In fact, the video showed Clinton and her daughter Chelsea walking casually from the plane to a greeting ceremony where a young girl received them. There were no signs of tension or danger to be found.
When Clinton was called out on her obvious lie, she simply responded that she “mis-remembered” and had a “different memory” of the events.
In other words, she lied.
