Oh, the humanity: Hillary Clinton pulls a Pelosi; publicly 'dances' in South Africa


Oh, yes. She did. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did a little bumping and grinding (oh, the horror of having to type those words) in South Africa.

Dude. To complete the “no rhythm white man dance,” she should have borrowed that whole bite-lip thing from her husband!

Media are, of course, swooning over it.

Just like when they went into fits of Squee over her sunglasses and Mardi Gras beads at a swearing in ceremony. She’s so totally cool and hip and stuff! Leadership shmeadership! She’s got the moves … of Nancy “Elaine Benes” Pelosi.

Twitter users just can’t get enough of it.

No worries! It’s continuing to make the rounds today; misery, and mocking, love company! Unlike the media, Twitter users are horrified. Yet can’t look away.

What has been seen, cannot be unseen. Sadly.

    Reminds me of Elaine’s dance on Seinfeld. Missing only the kick

    …well that was interesting.

    Does she know “Party Rock Anthem”? ;P

    What is it with Hillary and her Kim Jong Ill suits?

    • James McLarey

      They cover a lot of ……well, you know.

      Well, her husband gave the San Diego Harbor to the Chinese, so she’s just continuing the tradition and showing him support for his efforts! And, of course, supporting the Chinese Garment Makers Union as well! LOL

  • James McLarey

    To be honest, Michelle could have let this story go. Who gives a s— where or if Hillary dances. This is not even worth mentioning. It’s not worth my time. There are lots of things to criticize Hillary for as far as meaningful foreign policy. This just looks like Michelle is being petty.

    • benchbear

      I agree 100% James. I give props to everyone forced to do awkward stuff like this, publicly, as part of their diplomatic function. Personally, I’m more horrified by the current administration’s policies than Hillary’s dancing skills. And, speaking as someone who used to teach disco (feel free to calculate my age), she’s really not THAT bad. :-)

  • MovingToNevada

    Yeah, that was pretty lilly white.

  • VirtualHybrid

    I don’t care about the Clinton’s, but myself being an avid (and trained) dancer, I never criticize anyone who steps out of their comfort zone and onto a dance floor. Good for her.

  • Bill Gordon

    I want to unsee it, please.

    • Carol Durgin

      Why did you bother to look in the beginning?

  • Michael Z

    She even throws in one of Bill’s best moves at the .37 mark………………

    Let’s get real. So she’s not a Ginger Rogers, she was having a good time.

    I’m certainly no fan of Hillary but a girl has gotta have fun. This really isn’t worth making fun of.

  • Jest

    Honestly? WHO CARES? She was at an event, there was music, people were dancing…. let her dance and enjoy herself. Did I get trapped in a Junior High time warp or something. This is just mean-spirited, accomplishes NOTHING, and makes Michelle — and all who are behaving so badly — look immature and petty.

    Surely we have bigger fish to fry than this?

  • religionandhistory

    Doctor Evil dancing …sharks with lazer beams attached to their foreheads could dance better. ?

  • Sandy Pfaff

    two words that could help her …spray tan……

  • ekimp252

    Alcohol. Helping white people dance since the beginning of time.

    She totally looks like Dr. Evil in that outfit…

  • pepjrp

    It’s funny how race makes it’s way into different videos. Dancing terrible, they must be White, committing a violent crime, they must be Black, coming across the border, they must be Mexican.

    I’ve seen worse, I once saw a video of Al & Tipper Gore dancing. they couldn’t even keep time with each other, let alone the music. it ranks right up there, it’s pretty bad.

  • http://www.facebook.com/maryanne.malechastings Mary Anne Malec Hastings

    So, the first “black” president is married to a very “white” woman with no rythm …who cares?

  • FaithInGod2012

    im not a fan at all, but I think it was great she got up and danced with the local culture. i have traveled 48 countries and dancing with the local people is respect. If not it is like saying “IM too good for you”.. a slap in the face. Just like Mexico, they offer a tequilla it is rude to not accept… My opinion is not poltical, I am an independent and will NOT vote for Obama. Give her a break,, she tried, and all were smiling,,,,

  • Chip Snow

    She has gotten fat. And coming from a fat person, that’s just, well, wow she’s gotten fat.

  • $21590057

    I dance worse than that. Therefore, I do not dance in public.

    I am a VERY conservative American, and have absolutely NO admiration for Hillary politically, but to make such a fuss over this video is beyond the pale! She actually appeared better than most of us ‘white Americans’ would have under the circumstances. Michelle – we need to leave this type of ‘news’ to the left-wing idiots. They have nothing better to do.

  • Carol Durgin

    I agree. She is entitled to enjoy herself. What’s the big deal? For some it wouldn’t matter what she did, it would be wrong. I don’t particularly care for her as a person but this fussing is petty stuff.

  • unclebuck7

    She dances like a mummer.

  • Emma Brown

    She is getting soooo THICK…maybe she should lose some of it before she struts her stuff in public again….

  • Carol Fraley Laferty

    I see nothing wrong or bad here. She was just joining for goodwill. You all are being silly.

  • redheadgrl

    Personally, I think this is great. I have no love of Hillary’s politics, but she actually looks happy in this video. When is the last time anyone has seen her look happy? And to agree with Lydia, one of the most fun things to do when visiting other counties is to dance with the locals! Americans need to travel more.
