As she was leaving a book signing in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was the victim of a "journalistic" ambush by Jason Mattera of The Daily Surge. Accompanied by a security detail, Clinton was approached by Mattera with a copy of her book, Hard Choices, and he made an unusual and downright sick request:
Jason Mattera: "Hi, Secretary Clinton. Would you sign this for me?
Hillary Clinton: "What's your name?"
JM: "Um, if you could make it out to Christopher Stevens. I think you knew him."
HC: "I'm not going to make it out to Chris Stevens."
JM: "What difference does it make?"
HC: "Here it goes. Here."
JM: "What difference does it make if you could make it out to Chris Stevens?"
HC: "There you go."
JM: "It's kind of odd that you have more security than Chris Stevens had in Benghazi. What do we have here? An entourage of --"
Security: "Have a good night, sir."
JM: "Oh I'm having a great night."
"Oh I'm having a great night."
Translation: "Sure, I'm supposed to be upset about Benghazi and Chris Stevens and the three others who died in the consulate attack a year and a half ago, but really, I just got exactly what I wanted: some video of me being a smarmy asshole to the presumptive 2016 Democratic presidential nominee about a tragic event that has been politically exploited more than any other in recent memory."
God, these people are demented.
