I was hanging on to this for a retrospective of Hillary Clinton’s first week, but it’s too good to leave on the cutting room floor.
By now, you’ve no doubt heard that Hillary Clinton is doing her best to avoid interacting with any poor people, by which she means basically everyone. Just this morning, our Presidential candidate who insists that her age is not an obstacle to her abilities, avoided having to do such a common thing as walk across a parking lot by taking up a handicap space. And just yesterday, when sitting down to talk about the needs and wants to “everyday Iowans,” it turned out that her staff had not only engaged the group in an intensive interview process, but had actually bussed them in from surrounding cities.
Hillary Clinton’s astroturf candidacy is in full swing in Iowa.
Her Tuesday morning visit to a coffee shop in LeClaire, Iowa was staged from beginning to end, according to Austin Bird, one of the men pictured sitting at the table with Mrs. Clinton.
Bird told Daily Mail Online that campaign staffer Troy Price called and asked him and two other young people to meet him Tuesday morning at a restaurant in Davenport, a nearby city.
Price then drove them to the coffee house to meet Clinton after vetting them for about a half-hour.
The three got the lion’s share of Mrs. Clinton’s time and participated in what breathless news reports described as a ’roundtable’– the first of many in her brief Iowa campaign swing.
Bird himself is a frequent participant in Iowa Democratic Party events. He interned with President Obama’s 2012 presidential re-election campaign, and was tapped to chauffeur Vice President Joe Biden in October 2014 when he visited Davenport.
‘What happened is, we were just asked to be there by Troy,’ Bird said Wednesday in a phone interview.
In addition to Mr. Bird, a regular Democrat volunteer with a record of familiar activities a mile long, it also appears that the merry group included the president of a local chapter of the College Democrats, a former Obama intern and an employee of the local Planned Parenthood, all guaranteed to have their very finger on the pulse of the everyday Iowan.
