Oh. No. Hillary.
Appearing on a New York Radio Show, “The Breakfast Club,” white, entrenched politician Hillary Clinton hit new levels of pandering when she told co-host Angela Yee that she always carries hot sauce with her…
Clearly, pandering-Hillary was taking a page from Beyoncé’s controversial song “Formation” where the superstar references keeping “hot sauce in my bag” in desperate effort to connect with the black community. Co-host Charlamagne Tha God, who often appears on Fox News’ “Kennedy,” called out Hillary for her ridiculous pandering, to which Hillary stunningly asked: “Is it working?”
Here’s the cringe-worthy exchange that was much like a bad car accident you just can’t look away from no matter how much you want to:
Angela: “What’s something that you always carry with you?”
Hillary: “Hot sauce.”
Charlamagne: “Are you getting in ‘Formation’ right now? ‘Hot sauce-in-my-bag’ swag?”
Hillary: “Hot sauce.”
Charlamagne: “Really? Okay, I just want you to know that people are going to see this and say, okay, she’s pandering to black people.”
Hillary: “Okay. Is it working?”
Here’s Charlamagne’s very appropriate reaction as Hillary’s cackle fills the room:
Charlamagne also inquired about Hillary’s horrific dance moves, specifically invoking the popular “dab,” suggesting, “It always comes off like you’re trying too hard.”
Hilariously, Hillary agreed: “I am trying too hard,” she said, but added that it was only because “they ask me to do it.”
Repeatedly through the interview, Charlamagne ripped on Hillary for silly things like not shouting out to Jay-Z or mispronouncing Beyonce’s name in the past, to which Hillary offered up recompense and explanations for her sins. Apparently the facetious tone in which the co-host was speaking was lost on Hillary.
“A lot of black people feel like they can’t trust you because you mispronounced Beyoncé’s name,” said Charlemagne, referencing the presidential hopeful’s mispronunciation of the superstar’s name in December while pandering to blacks at a campaign event. (But she’s totally hip and LOVES her.)
Hillary quickly suggested that this was a terrible mistake and immediately sang the praises of Beyoncé, recalling a time when she just so happened to see Queen B perform at Michelle Obama’s (name-drop) birthday party. “It’s just like a natural phenomenon,” she said of the superstar’s performance.
Continuing, the co-host jokingly asks Hillary: “Now you went to Brooklyn last night and you didn’t say rest in peace to Biggie Smalls or shout out Jay-Z, why not?”
“It went by so fast,” replied Hillary.
“Just one big up to Brooklyn, RIP Biggie?” challenged Charlamagne.
“I said I love Brooklyn,” said Hillary, in a seemingly sincere tone.
“You gotta say, ‘Is Brooklyn in da house?'” interjected Yee.
Hillary painfully replied: “Brooklyn in da house, that’s right.”
The former secretary of state also made it a point to call out “white people” for their inability to “recognize” “systemic racism.”
“There is systemic racism that has to be called out and addressed,” she told the radio hosts.
“White people have to recognize that there is systemic racism,” she added. “A lot of white people basically say [racism is] over with,” said Hillary. “[T]here’s a lot more we have to do.”
Hillary, with a slightly relaxed accent, even invited all three of the co-hosts, Yee, DJ Envy and Charlamagne, to the White House if she were to become president. “Mark this day down,” she told them, trying to offer up some sincerity.
Hillary seemingly cannot help herself. A chameleon of sorts, the former secretary of state attempts to morph into whoever she is around and adopts policies that appeal to them.
Here’s the complete interview with “The Breakfast Club”; the painful “hot sauce” exchange occurs in the last two minutes of the interview.
