I’ll never understand why Hollywood loves Hillary Clinton so much. Sure, she’s a total fake, just like they are. But unlike her, they’re successful at it.

If they want to keep feting her, way past the point where it even makes sense anymore, at least their fantasy world is good for a laugh. Charles Fain Lehman, Washington Free Beacon:

Failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Tuesday night compared herself favorably to comic and movie heroine Wonder Woman during a video appearance at a glitzy Beverly Hills awards show.

Clinton appeared in a 95-second video on behalf of actress Elizabeth Banks, a friend and supporter of Clinton who was being honored at the Women in Film Los Angeles’ Crystal + Lucy Awards.

Sounds riveting. Here’s the video, courtesy of Chris Gardner at the Hollywood Reporter.

WARNING: Contains Hillary Clinton

“I haven’t seen Wonder Woman yet, but I’m going to… Something tells me that a movie about a strong, powerful woman fighting to save the world from a massive international disaster is right up my alley!”

Ha ha ha, get it? That’s why she’s like Wonder Woman. And, also like Wonder Woman, she will never be President of the United States.

As comic-book fans remember, Diana Prince married Steve Trevor back in the ’70s, and then he went into politics and spent decades banging every other woman in sight. Eventually he went all the way to the White House, where he carried on an affair with intern Etta Candy (“Blue Dress, Red Rage,” Wonder Woman #347). Diana stayed with Steve the whole time, strictly for political reasons. She even helped him malign the many, many women he left in his wake. Then she tried to ride Steve’s coattails and run for president herself, but she failed twice because she was a bad person and an even worse candidate. The only reason she could give voters to elect her was that she’d be the first POTUS with a vagina, and it just wasn’t enough. She was just that personally repellent.

Comics, right? The crazy stories those nerds come up with.
