The Republican party has sent a man in a squirrel costume to follow Hillary Clinton around on her tour for her new book, new book, Hard Choices.
As I’d noted earlier, GOP minions have been swarming Amazon to give Hillary’s book a bad rating — they even managed to read the entire thing within moments of it coming out.
The squirrel makes jokes about it being “nuts” to “put a Clinton back in the White House,” and other not terribly punny puns.
Well, Hillary decided to take the squirrel on, walked right up to him, and gave him one of her books. It was pretty classy.
Stephen Colbert covered Hillary’s response to the squirrel, and the overall idiocy of using a squirrel (sorry, that would be recycling a squirrel), to target Democrats.
“Sure, Clinton’s gone toe-to-toe with some of the toughest men on the planet. But has she ever taken on a man-sized rodent armed with puns? I think nut.”
“Now, this squirrel has been following Clinton for a week, and a spokesman for the RNC promises that ‘we’re going to do it for as long as it works.’ And I cannot wait for whenever that starts.”
