Did she go to the Hillary Clinton school of charm?
Recently surfaced footage from a police stop shows Caren Turner, a Democratic lobbyist and former aide to Clinton, attempting to use her influence to get her daughter and a male driver out of a traffic stop.
Turner, who at the time served as commissioner for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, flashed her badge at officers who had stopped the vehicle due to illegally tinted windows and an expired registration.
She also bragged about her connections to the local police chief and mayor; a clear case of her essentially saying ‘Do you know who I am?’
Turner previously served on a finance committee for Hillary Clinton, and also worked as a fundraiser for her 2016 presidential election campaign.

Upon arriving, Turner demands to know information about the stop, which resulted in a tow truck being called to impound the vehicle.
The officers try to politely let her know it’ s not her concern as she’s not involved and both drivers are adults.
“Miss …” one officer tries to say before being cut off.
“Don’t call me ‘Miss,” Turner seethes. “I’m ‘Commissioner.’ Thank you.”
She continues threatening the officers prompting one to tell her to “take a step back” because “you keep moving closer to me.”
Towards the end of the video, the officer suggests Turner take her daughter and leave the scene.
“You may shut the f*** up and not tell me when I may take my kid and her friends who are PhD students from MIT and Yale,” she responds with that Democrat charm.
“You may tell me nothing,” Turner frets. “Shame on you.”
Prior to departing, she makes one last threat.
“I will be talking to the chief of police. And I will be speaking to the mayor,” she insisted.
The Port Authority ethics chairwoman for New York and New Jersey Caren Turner resigned after intervening in her daughter’s traffic stop. Se was condescending and rude towards the police. She thought she’s above the law just like her ex boss Hillary Clinton?

The former Clinton Aide resigned last week after an internal investigation was conducted regarding her behavior.
One spokesman for the Port Authority described Turner’s behavior as “indefensible” and explained, “Commissioner Turner’s resignation was appropriate given her outrageous conduct.”
Now, this video proves her conduct truly was reprehensible. Clinton-esque, if you will.
Do Clinton aides have zero respect for public servants? This one certainly didn’t have any for the police. Tell us your thoughts below!
