When asked about Hillary Clinton’s efforts to distance herself from him as she moves toward a possible run in 2016, President Obama commented that he believed the American people want “that new car smell” in their next president:
“They wanna drive somethin’ off the lot that — that doesn’t have as — as much mileage as me,” he told George Stephanopoulos on This Week.
Really? Obama is all of 53! But Hillary, on the other hand, is 67 years old. An old, smelly woman. A post-menopausal grandma who wears dowdy, matronly pantsuits. And smells. Hillary, the old failed Edsel trying one last time to sputter and chug her way to the White House while spewing copious amounts of exhaust and smelly pollutants. But voters don’t want old or smelly. Apparently they want a sharp, fresh smelling, leather-upholstered sports car that can traverse any highway and byway, or the halls of Congress, with speed and efficiency while looking sleek and stylish. Message sent and received: Hillary was once nice enough, and now she smells enough. Is the Great Orator unaware of his foot-in-mouth disease or did we long ago conclude his seemingly innocent linguistic jabs are actually made with shrewd calculated intent? Women of a certain age are wondering. And if Joe Biden – who is 72 years old – runs in 2016, will the president comment on his aging unsavory odor, too?
