I Guess She Told Him


Hillary Clinton got a little testy with a Congolese student when he “asked her what “Mr. Clinton” thought about a Chinese trade deal with the Democratic Republic of the Congo.”

You want me to tell you what my husband thinks?” she replied incredulously when the male student asked her what ”Mr. Clinton” thought of World Bank concerns about a multibillion-dollar Chinese loan offer to the Congo.

”My husband is not secretary of state, I am,” an obviously annoyed Clinton said sharply. ”If you want my opinion, I will tell you my opinion. I am not going to be channeling my husband.”


The poor kid probably didn’t know what hit him. Political Punch reports that the young man, who asked the question says he was misquoted by the translator and he wanted to know what “Mr Obama” thought of the deal.

Oops… As a woman who blazes her own path, I think Hillary’s response was natural.
