Clinton Slams MSNBC and Shuster

MSNBC's David Shuster, guest-hosting the really crappy Tucker show, got into some trouble when he said that Hillary's daughter, her mom's campaign whore, was being pimped out by the Clinton campaign.

I guess the truth hurts, and abused women, like abused dogs, bite back.

Clinton is using her family to campaign for her. She simply isn't strong enough to do it on her own. So she pissed all over Shuster, who should be smart enough to know not to say such things on air, by writing a letter to NBC News' president. Shuster has been suspended and most likely will lose his job.

But here's the deal: Webster defines "pimp" as "to make use of often dishonorably for one's own gain or benefit." Isn't that exactly what Chelsea's mom is doing? Maybe not dishonorably, but certainly for one's own gain or benefit.

I'm tired of people getting called to the carpet by the press who get all pissy and whine to the dumbass execs of the news company, who always cave in and fire the reporter for his or her literal use of the words to explain the facts. Even if Shuster meant what he said in the pejorative sense, i.e., "the woman of the night" way, should he be punished? It's a fact that he's not an objective reporter -- his numerous pieces will confirm that for you. He has opinions and he says them. His "reporting" is always biased and his employer must relish this fact because, until now, it has put him in the lead on so many stories.

But that doesn't matter. What he said is literally true. And now Hillary is falling back on her "I'm a mother first, a politician second" crap. She's a whiner and the last thing we need is a Whiner in Chief.

Hillary rips MSNBC's Shuster - Kenneth P. Vogel and Michael Calderone -
