This email exchange between Hillary Clinton and her best friend Huma Abedin is entertaining on several levels. It dates from July 2011, and I assume it comes from the emails on Hillary’s secret server that were dribbled out in response to various requests. I don’t know why the exchange wasn’t noticed earlier, but apparently Alex Griswold of the Free Beacon discovered and Tweeted it. I believe the occasion was Betty Ford’s funeral.
Here are the emails:
In case the print is small, here are Huma and Hillary, in chronological order:
Huma: Looks like plane won’t be an issue.
We got message that family is very inclusive and if you wanted to speak at the service, they would welcome it.
Also, looks like michelle obama also going.
Hillary: I’d be honored to speak. Is it ok that we and Mrs. O take two separate planes?
Huma: I think its ok. But let me see what kind of plane she’s taking.
Hillary: I would rather have our own of course.
This is via InstaPundit, where Glenn notes the climate angle, given today’s news about the Paris agreement:
I’LL BELIEVE THERE’S A CLIMATE CRISIS WHEN THE PEOPLE WHO KEEP TELLING ME THERE’S A CLIMATE CRISIS START ACTING LIKE THERE’S A CLIMATE CRISIS:
Fair enough. But there is so much more! The Democrats can’t figure out why working class voters no longer identify with them. Maybe the sense of entitlement to separate airplanes expressed by Mrs. Clinton provides a clue. Of course, neither Hillary nor Michelle Obama paid for her own trip; both airplanes (assuming two were taken) were at taxpayer expense. But worrying about that sort of thing is for the little people.
Then there’s this: it has long been reported that the Obamas and the Clintons can’t stand one another. The fact that Hillary prefers not even to ride on the same airplane with Michelle O. can be taken as confirmation that warm feelings are lacking.
After the last election, I assumed we wouldn’t have Hillary to kick around anymore. But now, I am starting to hope that her threats to run in 2020 are for real!
