Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Sunday that she knows how difficult it is "to be the leader of a relatively small country."
I know Im relatively young, but I think I would have remembered President or Prime Minister or Queen Hillary.
Clinton made the comments on CNN's "Fareed Zakaria GPS" while discussing the conflict between Israel and Hamas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu.
Ive known Bibi a long time and I have a very good relationship with him, in part because we can yell at each other and we do, Clinton said. And I was often the designated yeller.
Clinton said she would often call Netanyahu to tell him to stop expanding Jewish settlements in what the Israeli leader called at the time: Places that are on the map of Israel's strategic interests.
Something would happen a new settlement announcement would come and I would call him up [and say] What are you doing? Youve got to stop this and we understood each other, Clinton said.
How did Clinton understand Netanyahu?
I know how hard it is to be the leader of a relatively small country that is under constant pressure and does face a lot of legitimate threats to its existence from those around it, Clinton said.
Oh, okay. But again, when was she the leader of a country? She was the first lady of Arkansas, which last I checked was not a country. She was the first lady of the United States, but she wasnt the leader and the U.S. is hardly a "relatively small" country (its the third most populous country and the third largest in square miles).
She was a U.S. senator from New York for eight years, but again she wasn't the leader of the state and despite what some from New York might believe, it's not a country. She was also the secretary of state, and though she was the leader of the State Department, that's also not a country and she still answered to President Obama.
So what "relatively small country" did Clinton lead?
This woman is losing her mind!
Yelling at a Head of State? was she drunk? Again!
The United States was a small country before she and Bill made it great. [/sarc]
That easy to understand. Hillary ran the White House for eight years and she considers the United States to be small potatoes compared to The ENTIRE WORLD.
To me, she appears drunk most of the time.
Well,our consulate in Benghazi was sovereign American territory....
Hillary! is the Queen of Humabedin.
She was head of the State of Delusion.
It's located in Hillary's relatively small mind.
Hillaryland. It is located next to Obamanation.
Why would she be yelling at Netanyahu?
Oh right she supports the terrorists he is trying to kill.
If she doesn’t believe in expansion, does she advocate the US returning to the original 13 colonies?
The doublewide! I’ve seen that from a bridge on the bus but I wasn’t about to go in.
