Let the Gaffes Begin: Hillary’s Original Bio Said She ‘Fought Children and Families’

With months (really years) to prepare, the allegedly well-oiled Hillary Clinton for President machine still managed to produce a howler of a mistake in her campaign bio’s debut. Since corrected, it originally stated that “she’s fought children and families all her career.”

This and other obvious gaffes are likely destined to go unreported by the Hillary-worshipping establishment press, while the slighest of real or imagined mistakes — up to and including supposedly taking an untimely drink of water — will become media obsessions for the next 19 months.

Here is a picture (HT Twitchy) of a portion of the bio containing the erroneous text:


Gosh, if a Republican presidential candidate’s staff got this sloppy with so much time to prepare, the press would already be commenting on his or her campaign’s “disarrary” and “poor organization.”

Hillary has a long way to go to catch up to the 242 gaffes committed by Barack Obama accumulated here by Blonde Gator. But I have a feeling that she’s up to the challenge — if she can convince voters to elect her.

One of the secrets to success in that endeavor involves members of the press continuing to ignore Mrs. Clinton’s likely frequent mistakes while ignoring her virtually universally acknowledged corrupt past.

Just for giggles, maybe someone should ask Mrs. Clinton why it took her over a decade to admit that she was not named after the first guy to climb Mt. Everest. The New York Times played along with Mrs. Clinton’s fabulism until October 2006.

  1. Hi Tom!

    Glad to see Ye Olde Gaffe List. Actually, I started it in 2011, and still add to it to this day. My goal was 200 in November 2012 (which I surpassed).

    Perhaps I ought to start one now for Hillz, since she’s off to such a spectacular start this time out of the box, “fighting children and families for her entire career”. I’ve often thought of doing a Biden gaffe list, but invariably that led to a sense of overwhelming hopelessness (so many, where to start?, a migraine, procrastination, and the *ahem* tea trolley, etc.

  2. Thanks, BG. That list has to be exhaustive (and exhausting) work. I deleted the reference to the list’s timeframe at BB and NB.

  3. Tom, I’d like to know how she has been fighting since her mother’s childhood. Now that’s precocious.

  4. Great catch.

    And “when she (her mother) was abandoned by her parents”? And that abandonment happened when she was alive?

    And who cares? She by all accounts had a father and mother in house during her entire childhood.

    Holy moly.

    Update: Her mother “was abandoned by her parents as a young child and shipped off to live with relatives who didn’t want her. By age 14, Dorothy knew the only way she’d get by was to support herself, and she started working as a housekeeper and babysitter while she went through high school.”

    But Hillary, per the text, was there fighting for her, even then, years before she was even conceived.
