Why do they keep doing this type of shit. It just seems like something that would work in the 90's but today we have too many alternate media sources.

Quote:
At a town hall hosted by actress Elizabeth Banks in Haverford, Pennsylvania yesterday, child actor Brennan Leach was selected to ask presidential candidate Hillary Clinton a question about Donald Trump.

The event was held at the Haverford Community Recreation and Environmental Center.

During the town hall, Clinton, her daughter, Chelsea, and Banks opened up the stage to alleged impromptu questions.

One 15-year-old girl asked, “At my school, body image is a really big issue for girls my age. I see with my own eyes the damage Donald Trump does when he talks about women and how they look. As the first female president, how would you undo some of that damage and help girls understand that they are so much more than what they look like?”

However, YouTuber Spanglevision suggests that the question may have been staged by pointing out that the apparently randomly selected girl is a local child actor with an IMDb, or an Internet Movie Database page.

It was later shared by a Redditor DJ_Dynasty_Handbag that Leach’s father is Democratic state senator, Daylin Leach. The New York times reports that he later admitted to helping his daughter write the question.

Is her IMDB page a part of the vast right wing conspiracy ?

Oh, and before some nutter brings up snopes, its unconfirmed on their site.

Are local child actors not allowed to ask questions? Are children not allowed to get help with questions from their Father at an event where the audience will be asked questions?

Where is the evidence she was a plant?

The only pieces we have are

"She's an Actress"
"She was asked a question"

This is just more of the right wings obsession with hazy optics vs facts.

Well, we have her father admitting to helping write her question, we have a long history of Clinton planting questions as far back as 2008.

You Hillary jock sniffers are really getting delusional.

That doesn't support your theory. If the child was a plant, the campaign would have provided her with a question.

Non-issue for me. Town hall is a chance to get talking points out there. Hillary just chose a different way to do it, using others to set her up so it doesn't look like she's being the heavy and swinging at Trump for no reason. I'm sure it's been done before, I'm sure it will be done again.

It's theater. And in theater, of course there is an actress. If you believe that questioners who have undergone heavy vetting before allowed on stage is that much different from someone who is an outright plant, you're letting yourself get caught up in the theater... willful suspension of disbelief.

Today I learned that Cobert is pretty naive about what a "town hall" is. Hint: it's an event format.

Not that that even that much matters anymore. Hell Trump's town hall last week in NH was invite only and all the questions were pre-screened by conservative talk radio host Howie Carr, in which he read them off of a card. When you can't even trust the people at an invite only event to ask the prepared questions, that's pretty sad.

This is pretty dumb, which is what I'd expect from a Trump supporter. I don't see any proof here that Hillary planted this girl in the audience.

These types of forums are always based on screened questions. They are not asking random people in the audience, they ask everyone to submit questions and then they pick the questions that they want to answer. Nothing to do with Hillary specifically, that is just how these town hall forums work. It isn't necessary to write questions for anyone, you just pick the questions that best fit your narrative and answer those.

I bet Cobert thinks that in the debate last night the moderators just randomly picked people out of the audience to ask questions on a live televised debate with 100 million people watching.

Can we just save everybody some time and skip ahead to the part where it's STATISTICALLY IMPOSSIBLE that a flaming racist gets zero votes in "certain neighborhoods" in Philadelphia?

Nah, wait a second, that's too harsh, wait a minute, what's the phrase...

Yep, that's it.

It is pretty shady. But the Dems have a history of this...remember all those women "fainting" at Obama's rallies?

But wait, Bill IS actually that lewd.

The "Lolita Express" is the nickname of Jeffrey Epstein's plane. Jeffrey Epstein is a convicted pedophile and pimp. Bill Clinton has been a guest on Jeffrey Epstein's plane on multiple occasions (perhaps as many as 26 times).

His joking about being "next" on the "Lolita Express" isn't off by that much.

You know who else is a big fan of Epstein? Donald Trump.

Quote:
"I've known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy,'' Trump booms from a speakerphone. "He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it -- Jeffrey enjoys his social life."


Oh and Woody Allen too. I guess they're all swapping notes.

I gotta admit they're all pretty distasteful, but only one is particularly relevant today.

Of course it is, it's a 'joke' about selling a kid into sexual slavery if they don't act as a political operative. Even as a joke it's creepy as hell.

Hey, you don't have to convince me - they are all a bunch of jackwagons.

I was only pointing out that to say that Bill is not THAT lewd may be a bit of a stretch given his connection to Mr. Epstein.

Why is it that if someone criticizes a Clinton, they automatically have to check to see if Trump did it too? I don't give a rats ass what Trump has done or hasn't done, because I don't care. I don't even care what Bill has done, and he isn't President any more. But my point it, someone said that Bill is not THAT lewd, and I felt that needed corrected, considering Bill's philandering past.

And Woody Allen is just a creepy mother f*&ker, and that's all I will say about him. But his creepiness is more incestuous rather than pedo.

That's all.
