They Just Can't Help Themselves

You have to wonder if the Clintons are completely tone-deaf to their public perception--or they just can't help themselves when it comes to giving the appearance of being shiftless political manipulators.  This week, Attorney General Loretta Lynch admitted to a private meeting with Former President Bill Clinton at the airport in Phoenix.  The meeting came just a few days before a Congressional report on Hillary Clinton's actions (or lack thereof) pertaining to the Islamic terrorist attacks on the Benghazi consulate.   It also comes as the FBI and the Department of Justice are investigating Mrs Clinton's use of a private email server for classified State Department information.

Lynch insists the two just happened to run into each other at the airport and that they only talked about grand-children and golf.  But even if these were the topics of conversation, if either of you know how such a meeting would appear to the public if it is discovered (and of course, it was) you would just exchange pleasantries briefly in full view of everyone in the terminal and head your separate ways--not sit together on one of your private jets turning the meeting from a "chance encounter at the airport" into a "secret meeting".

Like he has done with pretty much everything in his life, Bill Clinton probably thought he was going to get away with it--without any repercussions.  I can picture him calling Hillary on his cellphone right after the meeting:

"Hey Hill, guess who I just happened to run into at the airport?"

"Who, Bill?"

"Attorney General Loretta Lynch!  We had a real nice chat"

"What did she say about the email server and Benghazi?  Is she still 'taking care of it'?"

All of this comes as Mrs Clinton herself is beginning to address the astounding lack of trust American voters have in her.  She told supporters in Chicago this week that "she has work to do on this front" and then in the same week, news comes out about the "happenstance meeting" between her husband and the woman heading up the department investigating her.  If that is "working on it", I'd hate to see what "ignoring the issue" looks like.  But like I said, I honestly believe the Clintons just can't help themselves.
