Kara Swisher, Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton is on the hot seat for making a sarcastic comment about Eric Holder that went over badly on social media.

Over the weekend, a video surfaced in which Clinton and a journalist were discussing political correctness.

The journalist, Kara Swisher, asked Clinton what she thought about a quote by former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, whom she confused for New Jersey Senator Cory Booker.

Clinton corrected her, saying "That was Eric Holder.” Then, without missing a beat, Clinton quipped: "I know they all look alike."

Swisher quickly replied: "No, they don't," before she caught herself and realized that Clinton was being sarcastic. "Oh, well done," Swisher laughed.

Even though Clinton was being sarcastic, many on Black Twitter pointed to her history of racist comments as proof that she was too comfortable cracking the joke.

Clinton once famously called Black men "super predators" who needed to be heeled.

Question: Was Clinton's comment racist or sarcastic?

    I think it was in very poor taste and shouldn't have been said, period!!

  • Kimocha

    Yep!... That definitely was a racist comment!

  • Phillybruh

    Nah she good. It was sarcastic and shady. But not racist. Side note Junior from Blackish needs a spin off!

  • Sircaput

    She only said what I would have said, stop being sensitive people.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    As much as I dont like Hilary "Hot Sauce in my bag" Clinton it seems like she said it to be shady towards the moderator who clearly couldn't distinguish the difference between Eric Holder and Corey Booker...Now was the comment in poor taste...Yes...but the moderator should know the difference between the two men...

  • Phillybruh

    Especially those two men!

  • SpillyNillie

    Was she being sarcastic? Yes.
    Did she exercise poor judgement? Absolutely.
    Was I offended? No, but others may have been.

  • tia

    Although it doesn't make it right; I don't think Hillary meant any harm.
    Nevertheless, the climate that we are in is too volatile and crazy for those comments. We can't afford to have any "slip ups". Not a good time for it. Hillary know's better. Didn't bother me.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    You cant joke about stuff like this in these dam racially charged times. Also while i rather vote for a democrat than any republikkkan ever, i am well aware that many of them are tone deaf af and also feel superior to the rest of us even if that superiority comes across as empathy. Hillary bish sit tf down somewhere!

  • Renee26

    Well since people tend to pay more attention to the features of those who look like themselves I can't say that's a racist comment. Other ethnicities all look alike to me too shiiid. If I don't personally know a person (of a different ethnicity) it may be hard for me to pick them out of a crowd of people that look like them.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Hillary....

  • Renee26

    What's he gonna do babysit?? ?

  • 88

    This old haggard bish will continue to mock blk men as long as she has her attack dogs the negress who will continue to make excuses for her.

  • HotInCleveland

    I thought it was perfect timing on Hillary’s part, right after she corrected the moderator. And some criminals are “Super Predators” that should be locked up and never see the light of day. We have multiple shootings everyday here done by perpetrators with long violent rap sheets.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I am incapable of performing the mental gymnastics required to excuse this shyt. If it were said by anyone else, the same people excusing this would be condemning. Hilary is problematic. Period. She may be better than a lot of other politicians, but I see her azz very clearly.

  • Coy little wink

    The joke was on the moderator...its not racist to poke fun at her mistake to me

  • MrsSpice1

    Nup!!! Leave Hilary alone...what happened to freedom of speech...? ppl cant take a joke no more?? Ugh these days suck ppl make noise over every LITTLE thing no wonder its soo many miserable and depressed ppl in this world “why so serious”-ThaJoker

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Wow you're dumb.
    Stay on the Stupid Plantation.

  • HalleMerry

    ?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Kiss my entire behind.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Why?
    She was pointing out the moderators mistake.
    Duh!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    even if that superiority comes across as empathy
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    That part.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    No thanks but I will block you!!

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Well from what I saw, it was said in very poor taste. No need to be a smart ass about it!!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    How was it poor judgement?
    She was making fun of the moderator, duh!!

  • Phillybruh

    Him coming into his own this season is great..Last nights ep was solid.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Right. Poor taste

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Because folks are sensitive ... it was poor judgement .... but it doesn't offend me ...... I know what exactly she meant by it doe .... moving on....

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    You sound stupid enough to be a member of Blexit!!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    What are you waiting for? Why announce it, clown?

  • Itzgoingdown

    You sound like exactly what you are. A gay black man who is nothing more than a white liberal in BLACKFACE.

  • Itzgoingdown

    Ignore the sheman who is nothing but a white liberal in BLACKFACE.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So only black people can make that joke?

    Trying to figure out why people are so sensitive about it when it was obviously a joke since she corrected the moderator.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Smdh. So I watched the video (which I should have done initially instead of simply reading the write-up). The journalist incorrectly identifies Cory Booker as the person who made the comment and Hilary corrected her and made a joke about us all looking a like (which was a shot at the interviewer, not blacks). Context is important. I'll let that one go.

    But I stand by my assessment of Hilary. Hilary's azz is problematic.

  • ALLMINE?

    If Trump said this shit..?

  • SpillyNillie

    Considering the politically steered, racial climate we are currently living in, it was poor judgement.

  • Itzgoingdown

    She wasn't talking about "some". She was exclusively talking about YOUNG BLACKS in an animalistic way. "Super Predators with no conscious, no empathy..."

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    "Context is important."

    Some ppl don't understand this

  • HotInCleveland

    She wasn’t talking about all young black men. And there are young black men that behave like animals and terrorize their own communities. They are indeed Super Predators. Look at the context in which the comment was made-gang violence was rampid. Lock them all up and throw away the key.

  • Phillybruh

    Actually she was not she was talking about Gangs when did blacks have a monopoly on that, but since we want to own everything negative she was talking about blacks.

  • HotInCleveland

    Thank you!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    It's a really old joke and actually scientifically correct that people of one race have trouble distinguishing members of a different race, but the joke was one the moderation who should have known the difference.

  • Itzgoingdown

    Sellout Gay black man who has become an agent and infiltrator. You are nothing more than a white liberal in BLACKFACE. You will turn on your own mamma for the white man's b00ty hole.

  • Itzgoingdown

    Black liberals play dumb when it comes to racist white liberals. Funny thing is even white liberals acknowledge the truth about her Super Predator comment

    former Democratic opponent, Bernie Sanders, also criticized her language at a debate in Brooklyn. When Sanders was asked by debate moderator why he called out Bill Clinton out for his defense of Clinton’s use of the term "superpredator," Sanders responded, "Because it was a racist term, and everyone knew it was a racist term."

    The "superpredators" line comes from a 1996 speech in New Hampshire, where Clinton spoke in support of the 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, which her husband, Bill Clinton, had signed in to law. This law locked up A LARGE PERCENTAGE of non violent black men.

  • Itzgoingdown

    Lie

  • Miss Thang

    she's racist as hell. I went to school with white women like her and have worked with white women like her my entire career. They "liberal" but also racist as hell. Don't forget that more educated white women voted for Trump than Hillary. These the same witches that will hug you and come to the barbecue, but when there is a problem, you see the true demon they are. Racist bish.

  • HotInCleveland

    I don’t care about the opinion of Bernie Sanders. And I’m actually a registered Republican. Your baseless assumptions and rhetoric is not needed. Criminals should be locked up, whether they be white, black, brown or blue.

  • Logan Roberts

    Love him. He reminds me of my goofy brother when we were growing up.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    If some white conservative had said it this clown would be praising him like Jesus.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Considering all of the real racist stuff like the Krogers murders black twitter needs to prioritize better.

  • Itzgoingdown

    Are you white or black

  • HotInCleveland

    Black

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    That joke doesn't make the top 20 racist things that have happened since last week?
    Is that joke worse than those two black people who were murdered in KY due to their race?
    Is it more racist than Trump wanting to get rid of birthright citizenship?
    The joke was on the moderator who should have known better but hey if you want to misinterpret something just to get into your feelings so be it.

  • HotInCleveland

    Smh.

  • Faithz

    They sure in the h!ll do.

  • Itzgoingdown

    Ok, we can agree to disagree. I will never have a problem with FREE thinking blacks. Which Republicans in national elections did you vote for and why.

  • Quitedeliteful

    This was a dig at the moderator, I get that but still... Fugg Hillary....

  • Phillybruh

    For Starters I loathe Bernie Sanders he convinced some of you blacks that he was for you when in reality he never ever voted for anything that assisted you, nor did he bring any bills to the floor and he's from one of the whitest counties in the country. I was grown in 1994 and crime was rampant and people in the inner cities were begging for something and the crime bill is what they got did it go too far yes but at that time shat was out of control!

  • HotInCleveland

    I voted all democrat and independents in 2016. I plan on doing the same this year until the republicans jump off this Trump train.

  • Itzgoingdown

    You said you're a registered republican. Have you ever voted republican? Which republicans did you vote for in national elections and why?

  • Phillybruh

    I liked John Huntsman a few years back. I like being a registered independent.

  • Itzgoingdown

    Black gay man in BLACKFACE. You're nothing but a white liberal in disguise. Your opinion is virtually useless as it relates to black folks and black issues.

  • HotInCleveland

    Bush for President. Kasich for Governor. I’m a fiscal conservative

  • Phillybruh

    Why is that always the go to when yall get challenged. Insult because you can't make valid point.

  • Itzgoingdown

    You didn't answer my question. Yes or no Gay black man. lol

  • Mielle Downey

    The Black man Kanye said slavery was a choice and you people nearly jumped off a bridge. Now this sow/Yeti Hillary is trying to be slick with her " They all look alike" comment and you are actually defending her. Margaret Sanger and Robert Byrd are her hero's nuff said. Get off the plantation while you still have chance or you will be living in a shole.

  • Yui
  • Itzgoingdown

    Ok, have a good one.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Well Hill,that fvcked up your chances for runnin in 20/20

  • Itzgoingdown

    What liberal issues do you disagree with and think are bad for the black community.

  • Mielle Downey

    You didn't even ask about Kanye context did you? But this Yeti's comments are all about context? Jump off a bridge an take the yeti Hilda Beast and her context with you.I'm tired of you people tearing down black conservatives for their freedom that MLK and others fought for and excusing this thing that you call a leader. losers

  • Yui

    Personally, I think folks receive too much information nowadays and most of it isn’t positive. They can’t recieve anything without a fight. It’s pretty sad really.

  • RespectSelf

    That's the way of the world... is frustrating, but folks pick and choose when stuff is and isn't ok. speaking for self... I didn't have an issue with Kanye saying that it "sounds like a choice" to be enslaved for 400 plus years and blaming mental slavery for being the cause... and I don't see a problem with this. She was taking a shot at the person interviewing her. I'm more so triggered by the intentions of the words than the words themselves.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    No it has not she got a few million non thinking black people on her side

  • Well$$Well$$?

    Even though I think she was being sarcastic and joking, I actually agree with cons about how liberals are kind of brushing this off. If she was a conservative/Republican liberals would be calling her a racist whether she was joking or not.

  • Phillybruh

    As long as you continue to insult me, I don't feel the need to answer your question. Your probably on your 2nd strike and on break from Whole foods anyway...lol

  • Mielle Downey

    Hillary is a Troll and the worst kind.I see a problem with her even joking about this and if you don't that your freedom of choice. She is problematic when it comes to opening her mouth and I will never for give the super predators remake. Was there a context there? She has unspoken racist tone when she speaks and this is the worst and most dangerous form of racism, the silent and subtle. She could have answered the interviewer by saying that she was mistaken but no she had to point out that all blacks look alike.She is a troll.

  • IAmLegend

    How so? It's obvious that she was calling out the interviewer for her ignorance.

  • IAmLegend

    Thank you for having common sense

  • Mielle Downey

    But when the Woodland troll says it it's context. I will not be the black person who makes excuses for racist. She needs to keep pathetic trolling of black people to a minimum. She could have said to the interviewer " no that was not Eric it was Corey" end of storey. But the troll had to be true to her woodland troll roots.

  • Mielle Downey

    No she was trolling you and every other subservient super predator.

  • Bashi22

    Shh black people will still vote for Hillary

  • Mielle Downey

    No the Joke is on Donna Brazil and every other black person she has thrown under the bus to gain her seat at the toilet the two time loser. She has a very condescending tone when it comes to black people and I despise her for thinking she can get away with it because she see us as subservient to her yeti behind.

  • Logan Roberts

    Same ole shyt different day ?

  • IAmLegend

    I feel sorry for people like you. Using any excuse you can to be mad and falsely accuse people of racism even when there is no evidence of the case. You make it hard for us to fight against REAL cases of racism and bigotry.

  • Coy little wink

    This my sense of humor hun

  • Itzgoingdown

    Sellout Gay black man who has become an agent and infiltrator. You are nothing more than a white liberal in BLACKFACE. You will turn on your own mamma for sex with a white man. smh

  • SpillyNillie

    Dude, you are clearly the only person in their feelings...it's not that serious so chill.

  • Mielle Downey

    Hillary's condescending attitude toward black people is real racism and you and other are complacent . The fact that Democrats have the mind that all black people think alike and look alike is racism my dear child. Not all people have the gift of clarity of thought but with God's help you will make it. We are all different in the way we look , think and feel. you are liberal and I and not.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Mielle is a troll who only sees racism whenever a non-conservative says something close to racist.

  • Applebootay

    MAAAAAAAAAAANNNN....I went through this with the last election with these people on here about this woman....people don't read or do research...

  • Applebootay

    I assume you loathe the clintons too for that bill they signed and all the fukked up shat they did too?

  • Stationarity

    "But we also have to have an organized effort against gangs," Hillary Clinton said in a C-SPAN video clip. "Just as in a previous generation we had an organized effort against the mob. We need to take these people on. They are often connected to big drug cartels, they are not just gangs of kids anymore. They are often the kinds of kids that are called superpredators — no conscience, no empathy. We can talk about why they ended up that way, but first, we have to bring them to heel."

    How is this statement talking about all black youths? Are you saying that all black. Youths are in gangs?

  • what?why

    A joke? Even f it was, it is still wrong. All those that have been punished for these same shenanigans should bring Hillary & the leftist to their court cases.. Still waiting for repercussions as this is a clear sign that the leftists and Democrats are a joke. Wake Up people

  • TransMichelle

    The first thing they want to do is call you a troll because you are not following behind white liberals. If The Donald has said what Hillary said, all holy hell would have broke lose. This video below (it's short about 4 minutes) reveals how white liberals really think about black people. They think black people are stupid and slow. The interviewer first interviews white liberals then interviews black people and the difference is amazing.

    These niccas don't want to get off the plantation. The liberals are just throwing it in their faces and they still want to stay on the plantation. It's pitiful.

  • TransMichelle

    AMEN

    They didn't sign the bill, he did he was President! They also have both gone on record saying that it was too harsh on Minorities. But in the 90's folks in the inner cities were calling for something.

    If Trump had said this it would have been holy hell. The same way Hillary said she carries hot sauce in her purse. She finds it easy to appease black folks.

    Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat!!!!! SHE CAMPAIGNED THE HELL OUTTA THAT BILL...SHE WOULD SPEAK SOLO DOLO...AND FUK them going on record...after they probably knew she would run for Secretary or Office in the future...I'm glad you forgave them and can explain it away with some weak explanation...tell that to the me still in PRISON because of that very bill to this day....Maannnnn I can run it on you all they about them...but I did that last election...I'm tired...Alls my life I had to fight...Is TIED!

    They had an open marriage where Hitlery was allowed to have her women on the side so it was a one off.

  • TheOwley

    "They all look alike anyway." These are seriously hurtful and insulting words directed at blacks or asians by white people. If it comes from a democrat, it is forgiven and the hypocrites will laugh along and excuse it. If it comes from non-democrats people have a mental meltdown. This is who Hillary Clinton is and always has been. She's never changed since the days she called her black house staff N**** as First Lady of Arkansas. People have this overwhelming need to fool themselves when it comes to this luciferian.

  • Mielle Downey

    Malcom x is rollin in his grave to think that he warned us about liberal trolls and now most of our people have become the liberal lapdogs attacking thier own people for their freedom of choice.

  • Mielle Downey

    No she was making fun of slow black people like you that accept her trolling condescending behind.

    But why? Is the moderator a known racist? why was she even implying that that's why the moderator confused the two? I confuse my own children sometimes. I forget, we don't know why the moderator slipped, but hilary should have never let it come out of her mouth. She's not a comedian...FUKK her

  • Applebootay

  • Coy little wink

    That's my interpretation...it wasn't racist she was saying to her the joke is on you...you misidentified them and they look nothing alike. That's just how I see it...we view it differently

  • Applebootay

    WOW!!! you must really like her...even if all that is true...it was done is such poor taste...IMO...the joke only implies what she actually thinks...thats my interpretation...plus I don't like her...LOL

  • Coy little wink

    Why does the joke imply what she thinks? She didn't write that joke.
    she KNOWS Holder and Booker don't look alike That's the whole point to me...it was a dig at the moderator not black people

  • Applebootay

    I'm just trying to dig deeper...why is she digging at the moderator? Or is that what she's hiding behind...do they have beef? was the interview not going well? why the dig tho? when a reasonable theory for that can be answered then I'll drop my disdain for her by like....1/2 point....LOL

  • Coy little wink

    I think she dug at her because as the moderator she should not be improperly quoting people. She should know but didn't...that's her job at minimum to quote factually

  • Applebootay

    OK....I can see that....ok ok ok...I dropped it 3/4 points....but I still don't like her...thanks for hanging in there with me...my conspiracies can get out of control...LOL

  • Coy little wink

    I mean she's done a lot in her career like any politician good and bad but she's an attorney and I am too so I do relate to her somewhat with that experience

  • Jussjess25
