So, for all the talk about Donald Trump’s weirdness in this election cycle, it turns out that Hillary Clinton and her team are far weirder – the media have simply chosen not to report it. On Friday, Wikileaks spilled an email showing that Clinton campaign chair John Podesta was invited to a “spirit cooking” by Marina Abramovic, along with John’s brother Tony (who is currently under investigation for his firm’s ties to the Russians). As Pardes Seleh reports:
Spirit cooking often incorporates human elements—particularly blood, breast milk, urine, and sperm—in ritualistic cooking. Its origins are found in Cake of Light, a supposedly spiritual food whose ingredients include honey, oil, menstrual blood and sperm. In a Reddit forum, Abramovic told users the context of the ritual depends heavily on intention. Performing it in a gallery or studio makes it art, while performing it in the confines of one’s home makes it more intimate and spiritual.
Abramovic also recommends “eating the pain” after cutting your middle finger, using “fresh urine” to wash away “nightmare dreams,” and “mix[ing] fresh breast milk with fresh sperm milk” for “earthquake nights.”
But Trump is the weirdo.
Hillary Clinton’s oddities have gone unreported by the media for literally decades. According to Bob Woodward, Hillary brought Jean Houston, co-director of the Foundation for Mind Research, to the White House when Hillary was first lady. There, Hillary held séances with Eleanor Roosevelt and Mahatma Gandhi. She said she thought it would be a step too far to talk to Jesus, however. Hillary wrote that Eleanor “usually responds by telling me to buck up, or at least to grow skin as thick as a rhinoceros.”
Hillary also loves to throw back alcohol. Her former campaign manager and current corrupt Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe said, “She loves to sit, throw ‘em back. We all hear about the story that she and John McCain actually had a shot contest, I think in the Ukraine or somewhere around the world. And she actually beat John McCain in a shot contest.”
So, Hillary isn’t exactly the paragon of stoic soberity. She’s an odd lady surrounded by odd people who will do terrible things as president. But don’t expect the media to report it.
