"My husband is not secretary of state, I am"
A student at a university in the Democratic Republic of Congo got a sharp response from US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton when he asked
what her husband thought of an issue.
Mrs Clinton was asked, through a translator, what former President Bill Clinton thought about Chinese investment in the country.
Officials said later that the student had apologised to Mrs Clinton, saying he had meant to ask what President Obama thought.
Wow....just wow....you really have to watch the video in the link.
The student was asking Hilary Clinton what was her husband Bill Clinton's thoughts on Chinese investment in Congo.
A relevant question, considering he did used to be President of the US.
Her reaction was amazing. She could have brushed the question off politely, but instead nearly takes the poor student's head off!
Talk about an evident inferiority complex with her husband!
Personally, she's the one who should apologise. Fairly evident to me she did not want to even be there, and it's suggestive that if it's not some
world leader or other powerful person she's going to meet, she's not interested in you and will see you as nothing less than a minion to be
dismissed out of hand and treated with contempt.
Okay, so the student did not speak good english, but being answered to like that was out of order.
Such self-importance, arrogance and ego! Perhaps if the student was a world player he would have got respect.
Disgusting. The mask of TPTB slips.....
