In the annals of American presidential politics, I don’t think a senior aide has ever said anything quite like this about the candidate: “You know these things that happen in your life that just stick? She walked by and she shook my hand and our eyes connected and I just remember having this moment where I thought, ‘Wow, this is amazing,’ And it just inspired me. You know, I still remember the look on her face. And it’s funny, and she would probably be so annoyed that I say this, but I remember thinking; ‘Oh my God, she’s so beautiful and she’s so little!'” So said Huma Abedin about Hillary Clinton on episode 45 of Call Your Girlfriend.
One thing about this year: reality has outstripped satire. You can’t make this stuff up.
Huma can’t really top her account of the first time ever she saw Hillary’s face, but this is also quotable: “I think that if my boss quit tomorrow, she will go down as one of the greatest American women in the history of the world.”‘
