Hillary Clinton, who has kept a relatively low public profile since losing the presidential election two months ago, on Sunday showed up at the final performance of the Broadway revival of “The Color Purple,” reveling in the story of a beleaguered woman who triumphs over the oppressive men in her life (and, along the way, discovers a love for colorful pants).
Mrs. Clinton, accompanied by her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and their daughter, Chelsea, received several ovations from the sold-out audience as she arrived, and then another round of applause when she was acknowledged by the cast after the show.
“There’s a lot of really awesome famous and notable people here today,” the actress Patrice Covington, who gave the farewell speech on behalf of the cast after the show, said to the audience. “I’m not going to call all of them out — I know you already know them,” she said, before pausing, looking in Mrs. Clinton’s direction, and waving at her mischievously. At that, the audience erupted into a new, loud round of applause.
The "People's President," I like that.
Really the only solace that seems available these days is the recognition that there are so many Trump voters who will at some point be banging their heads against the wall wishing that they had the common sense to vote for this woman in 2016, instead of the tangerine colored man-child whose administration is guaranteed to be the most corrupt in this nation's history.
Yeah I know, I know, we are supposed to be compassionate for the simple minded, but that is a real challenge when their slack jawed stupidity has inflicted such a catastrophe upon us.
And the really troubling part is that they are unlikely to get any smarter.
Instead they will simply find excuses for being so easily manipulated by the next political con man who comes down the pike.
