Hillary Jokes “They All Look Alike” After Interviewer Confuses Corey Booker and Eric Holder
Hillary Clinton made an inappropriate joke about Sen. Corey Booker (D-NJ) and former Attorney General Eric Holder, telling an interviewer, “they all look alike” after the journalist mixed up the two political leaders.
In an interview on Friday with Recode co-founder and technology business journalist, Kara Swisher, Clinton made the comment after Swisher attributed Holder’s recent incendiary statement about “kicking” Republicans to Booker.
“Yeah, I know they all look alike,” said the former Secretary of State
“What do you think of (Booker) saying ‘kick them in the shins’ essentially?” asked Swisher.
“Well, that was Eric Holder,” Clinton noted.
“Eric Holder, oh, Eric Holder, sorry,” Swisher said.
“Yeah, I know they all look alike,” said the former Secretary of State.
The Washington Examiner points out that during the same discussion, Clinton expressed her desire to be president.
“We’re going to talk about 2020 in a minute. Do you want to run again?” asked Swisher.
“No. No,” Clinton said.
“That was a pause…” said Swisher.
Clinton replied, “Well I’d like to be president. I think, hopefully, when we have a Democrat in the Oval Office in January of 2021, there’s going to be so much work to be done. I mean we have confused everybody in the world, including ourselves. We have confused our friends and our enemies. They have no idea what the United States stands for, what we’re likely to do, what we think is important, so the work would be work that I feel very well prepared for having been at the Senate for eight years, having been a diplomat in the State Department, and it’s just going to be a lot of heavy lifting.”
