THE HILLARY CLINTON STORY YOU SHOULD NEVER FORGET -- Children at the Hospital
American Spectator | March 1997

Posted on 12/05/2003 6:52:50 PM PST by doug from upland

(Story originally appreared in the American Spectator, March 97)

It seems that Hillary, who's had her fingerprints found on all the new scandals that are breaking on a daily basis is trying to fix her public image.

So, to promote the new effort, showing how deeply Hillary cares about children, especially sick children in hospitals, Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington got a call. Hillary Clinton would be coming over soon with children's author Maurice Sendak. Hillary's advance team would be showing up arranging the security and logistics. The team did show up. What they saw horrified them.

The kids in the hospital children's ward really looked sick! Some of them had tubes sticking out. Some had lost their hair to chemotherapy. Some were groggy because of the pain killers they had to take.

Hospital officials were quickly told this would not do. Hillary would look bad in a newspaper photo if she posed with sickly looking children. They were told. "No children that look drowsy, skip bald kids, sick looking kids, or kids with tubes sticking out."

So here's what the hospital actually did. They outfitted a hospital conference room with toys and kids decorations. They ordered hospital staff members to bring in their healthy children who would pose as sick children in photos with the great St. Hillary.

So, on January 10th, Hillary Clinton showed up to Georgetown University Medical Center and read to a bunch of kids with author Maurice Sendak. Had you read the papers or heard the news the next day, you might have been bowled over by her compassion. Actually she demonstrated the opposite. You see the real sick kids, who were originally told they would be visited by the first lady were originally extremely happy and excited at the prospect of her visit.

When they were later told, they were too sick looking to be with the great Hillary, some became deeply depressed. After all how would anyone feel not being good enough for Ms. compassion herself.

Of course the press published the photos of Hillary reading to the cute kids the next day. They just forgot to tell you that Hillary, in the quest of the perfect photo could not bring herself to be photographed with an actual sick child.

The phony mask of compassion that Hillary hides behind has slipped once again. Just around Purim time too!

That sounds like Hillary. I wonder if they were tempted to bring in extra's to Afghanistan and Iraq to pose as soldiers happy to meet Hillery?

She had another problem at one of those hospitals when a bunch of the nurses got together and had signs up, you only get to visit the live children not the aborted ones.

Personally, I think the hospital staff was negligent for almost allowing the visit to the sick kids anyway. I bet the healthy ones she did meet with were never the same after that.

This is true? Of course I believe her capable, but one would think a charade so transparent would not be attempted.

Anyone that would tell this to a sick child is just as sick as Hillary.

I'm with you. NewsMax used to be a very UNreliable source. They have improved but this was 1997. I'm dubious.

I found several sources which referenced the AMERICAN SPECTATOR article in March 1997. I don't think the A.S. is still being published or I would search its archives. Surely, a FReeper somewhere must have it in his/her library archives.

Can you imagine the kind of people who serve on Hillary's staff? How does she find people who have absolutely no shame or self-esteem to fetch for her? I mean, they have to be scumbags too, right?

Those who work for her are true believers or just plain scum. Who else would the Clintons hire for head of WH security besides Craig Livingstone, former bar bouncer. The people around them are as slimy as they are.

I'm not doubting the truth here but I've always wondered where that was stated. Also, can someone please give me a link to an article saying the military had to be unarmed when the Clintons were present?

I really want to shove this up a few people....your guess where.

This mentions the Washington Times, but searching their archives brings no results.

HILLARY'S HYPOCRISY
In January, First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton gained much publicity by reading to children on the pediatrics ward of the Georgetown Medical Center. Now, the American Spectator magazine, reports that sick youngsters were barred from the event--that the children shown in the newspaper photos actually were the offspring of hospital staff. Mrs. Clinton's advance team became squeamish about their boss appearing with kids who weren't 100% in the pink; in fact, hospital officials were told not to allow any children into the photo-op who were "drowsy, bald, bearing tubes in their bodies, or sick-looking," the magazine said.

I can't give you a link, but that was the word that went around when the Klown visited Davis-Monthan AFB in 1999, when I was stationed there. The Security Police were disarmed, and security was left to the Secret Service. In fairness, I don't know if this is standard procedure for any Presidential visit to any military base.

This story is so beyond the pale that it may be concocted. But it would not be uncharacteristic of the biatch. Conversely, I'm reminded of Princess Diana who often visited dying children, hugging and caressing them, without regard for appearances.And not a few American sports figures have performed similar acts of compassion.
