När Hillary Clinton fört fram exempel på sin utrikeserfarenhet har hon nämnt bland annat sin resa till Bosnien 1996. På sin resa hade hon sällskap av sin då tonåriga dotter Chelsea, sångerskan Sheryl Crow och komikern Sinbad.
Nu har Sinbad trätt fram och berättat om resan som Hillary Clinton beskrivit som farlig:
In an interview with the Sleuth Monday, he said the ”scariest” part of the trip was wondering where he’d eat next. ”I think the only ‘red-phone’ moment was: ‘Do we eat here or at the next place.‘”
Clinton, during a late December campaign appearance in Iowa, described a hair-raising corkscrew landing in war-torn Bosnia, a trip she took with her then-teenage daughter, Chelsea. ”They said there might be sniper fire,” Clinton said.
Threat of bullets? Sinbad doesn’t remember that, either.
”I never felt that I was in a dangerous position. I never felt being in a sense of peril, or ‘Oh, God, I hope I’m going to be OK when I get out of this helicopter or when I get out of his tank.'”
In her Iowa stump speech, Clinton also said, ”We used to say in the White House that if a place is too dangerous, too small or too poor, send the First Lady.”
Say what? As Sinbad put it: ”What kind of president would say, ‘Hey, man, I can’t go ‘cause I might get shot so I’m going to send my wife…oh, and take a guitar player and a comedian with you.‘”
As you may have guessed by now, Sinbad isn’t supporting Clinton for president. He’s an Obama guy. All because of Clinton.
”What got me about Hillary was her attitude of entitlement, like he messed up her plan, like he had no reason to be there,” Sinbad said. ”I got angry. I actually got angry! I said, ‘I will be for Obama like never before.'”
