Throughout her current presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton has shown that she is a crazy control freak who wants to pick and choose everything we see about her.
Unfortunately for Hillary, a photo from her campaign event in New Hampshire last weekend is going viral, but she definitely never wanted this one to go viral…
During a Fourth of July parade on Saturday, Hillary’s secret service detail literally wrangled reporters by keeping them inside a rope throughout the entire parade.

“Hillary Clinton continues to demonstrate her obvious contempt and disdain for the Granite State’s style of grassroots campaigning,” said Jennifer Horn, chairman of the New Hampshire Republican State Committee. “The use of a rope line at a New Hampshire parade is a sad joke and insults the traditions of our first-in-the-nation primary.”
According to Conservative Tribune, the Clinton campaign tried to explain this away with a play on words that fell dreadfully flat.
“While the GOP might want to spin a good yarn on this, let’s not get tied up in knots,” Hillary’s camp said. “We wanted to accommodate the press, allow [Clinton] greet voters [sic.] And allow the press to be right there in the parade with her, as opposed to preset locations.”
This excuse isn’t satisfying anyone, however, and with this move Hillary has managed to anger members of the press on all sides of the political spectrum. Even the liberal crew at CNN was left outraged by the way they were treated.
“This is humiliating for reporters who have to abide by Hillary Clinton’s rules of journalism,” said libertarian commentator S.E. Cupp. “And it’s not just this. I mean, the entire campaign, she has kept them at a distance. She barely answers questions. There’s all these [sic] rules.”
“And actually I don’t blame her, I blame reporters who put up with this,” she continued. “The second they decide we’re not doing this anymore, we’re not going to cover your glossy events the way you want it, then she’ll be forced to change this behavior.”
“I love Hillary Clinton, but this is the worst visual metaphor,” said the super-liberal former Obama adviser Van Jones. “Before, you could say ‘she’s not talking to reporters,’ but you can’t cover not talking. You can show this image over and over again, and it’s awful.”
“The relationship between the Clinton campaign and the press is just hostile, on both sides, and it’s early for that,” The Wall Street Journal’s Carol Lee wrote. “We’re how many months out, and if it’s that hostile now, and reporters are being penned off like farm animals, then, you know, where is it going to go?”
With the conservative AND liberal press uniting against Hillary, it certainly isn’t looking good for Mrs. Clinton…
