I don’t….I can’t…oh, heavens. Just watch.
There are two super confusing things about this clip. One, is that it’s clear she was prepped and ready to do the barking thing, which is strange when you consider that literally everyone has a camera these days, and that was definitely going to make it to YouTube. Was someone on her team like, you know what would be great publicity? If you barked like a dog for a full fifteen seconds and then pretended like it was totally normal. Or did she ad lib that thinking it “humanized her?” Like, exactly what is going on here and is this real life because, holy hell, that is definitely a thing that just happened.
Two, if humans were conditioned to bark like a dog every time they lied, an implausible suggestion in and of itself, Hillary Clinton would be the one barking like a mutt that’s just seen the mailman. Just saying.
Also, you guys, this really happened.
