Hillary Clinton has not had a dream run to her presidential candidacy. The Huffington Post writer, John Tsilimparis, eloquently outlined her problems eloquently in his blog, Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump: Unlikable vs. Unpredictable.
Here’s a tidbit:
“A recent article in Psychology Today stated that if Hillary Clinton behaves strong, forceful and confident, she is considered unlikable, “bitchy” and lacking warmth — this seems to be her biggest flaw in the public eye. On the other hand, if she is warm and tries to be likable, she is considered weak, less competent and unfit to be commander-in-chief. As a result, she may at times over-state her muscle with unlikable bravado that turns people off.”
While Trump’s ego seems hell-bent on sabotaging Trump’s chances of being elected by sane human beings, Clinton’s ego is listening to her critics.
She is trying to appear warm and friendly.
Especially to younger voters, perhaps to balance the number of voters that Trump’s daughter is wooing and winning.
Making fun of herself is a pretty good way to do that. And a classic way to steal the limelight from those who would do it for her.
To that end, Hillary for America has paid for (according to the video) a Hillary spoof video, Hillary Clinton Meme Queen 2016.
It’s two minutes of meme mania starring Clinton look-alike, Teresa Barnwell, in the style – more or mostly less – of classic campaign advertising.
It opens with “Clinton” on a unicycle, sating “Here come dat boi.” Clinton also demonstrates that she’s “down” with Damn Daniel, But That’s None of My Business, the Harlem Shake, Grumpy Cat, Harambe and Pokemon Go.
“People are always asking me what’s the best method of gun control,” “Clinton” states later in the ad. “I say no-scoping some weak-ass noobs across the map.”
The video was directed by Mike Diva (aka Mike Dahlqust) and published by social video company, Super Deluxe.
On its YouTube channel, Super Deluxe calls itself, a community of “creative weirdos making videos that are (we hope) more substantial than much of what you see on the internet today.”
It may, or may not have achieved that with Hillary Clinton Meme Queen 2016, but Super Deluxe’s video might do its job.
