We’re thinking the Clinton campaign probably didn’t thoroughly review this speech beforehand.

At an event celebrating Clinton’s ability to skirt the law a campaign stop in North Carolina, President Obama sang the praises of Hillary Clinton, at one point referring to her as the “Energizer bunny.”

“I saw again and again how, even when things didn’t go her way, she just stands up straighter and comes back stronger,” Obama said. “She just kept on going. She was the Energizer bunny. She just kept on.”

 

Seems like a reasonable compliment. Why then, was Clinton giving Obama the ‘you’re about to end up with a barbell on your throat‘ stare?

 

Perhaps it’s because ‘Energizer’ bunny is a well known nickname for one of Bill Clinton’s mistresses.

Whoops.

In 2014, a Washington Post reporter released a book in which he revealed that President Bill Clinton had a ‘secret’ mistress whose visits were so well known amongst his security staff that she had been given the playful nickname, ‘Energizer.’

The security team’s for both Bill and Hillary allegedly work together in a coordinated effort to hide ‘Energizer’ from Hillary.

“You don’t stop her, you don’t approach her, you just let her go in,” one source is quoted as saying in trying to explain how Energizer – better known as Julie Tauber McMahon – was easily able to get into the Clinton’s home.

McMahon made headlines very recently, when it was reported that Bill Clinton had directed millions of dollars through the Clinton Global Initiative to a company that his mistress co-owned.

But hey, we’re sure Hillary was absolutely thrilled that Obama’s reference could easily be compared to one of her husband’s mistresses.
