Hillary Clinton’s oversized motorcade gridlocked Manhattan traffic this week so she could, eh, get a coiffe.

Looks like the cut and color cost a mere $1,200. But she’s for the little people!

Hillary Clinton’s entourage — four big black cars plus her top aide Huma Abedin — was spotted outside Bergdorf Goodman on Wednesday morning waiting as the presidential hopeful got her $600 haircut.

According to one witness, “Hillary’s entourage was blocking traffic early this morning, and waiting as Hillary got her hair done before heading up to do an event at the Apollo Theater in Harlem.”

Clinton gets her hair done at the John Barrett Salon by John Barrett personally, who we previously reported charges $600 for a haircut, plus an extra $600 for color.

Reader Silby emailed us this, eh, unique reaction:

Not only is she a liar and a cheat, she’s a f***ing idiot!

Hillary has a $600 haircut yesterday at Bergdorfs in NYC and her limo and entourage blocked traffic for 4 blocks!! Put that f***ing ‘I’m working for the people’ bulls*** on your blog!!

Such a f***ing hypocrite. I despise her.

My haircut alone is $35. Roots and cut, $80. Roots and highlights and cut and blow-dry comes to $110.

My look kills hers.

If I spend $1,200, I better have hair that glows and has its own zip code.

F***ing $1,200 for a haircut and a color.

I guess $$$ is no object when you are in a quest for power!!

Why the hell doesn’t she spend $1,200 on Jenny Craig or Nutrisystems? How about a f***ing Zumba class? She can’t walk up the stairs without assistance, for f***’s sake!!

Or how about spending $1,200 on food for the homeless shelter in Harlem, where she can speak jive to pretend she cares about anyone other than herself?

She better not f***ing be my president. I’m going to have to go into a four-year hyper-sleep or something.

Which reminds me of what the late, great Dr. Bob once told me, presciently predicting the rise of Hillary Clinton, I guess.

He said, “Beauty is only skin-deep, but ugly goes down to the bone.”

Our Watcher’s Council Nominations – ‘Legacy’ Edition

The Watcher’s Council


There are a lot more bodies I could add to the pile… the dead in Libya, Mali, Nigeria, Algeria, Israel, Egypt and Americans murdered by the illegal migrants he’s allowed in, as well as veterans whom have died in the morass of our own dysfunctional VA system. If a president like Barack Hussein Obama can tango through a record like that and not get impeached, it says a great deal about how low the bar for our leaders has become and what the American people are apparently willing to put up with. And that’s our legacy, as well as his. Think about it.

Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the ‘sphere and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday morning.

So, let’s see what we have for you this week…

Egypt Air Hijack – ‘Don’t Call Me Shirley’

By: Chris Knowles

That hijacking the other day is starting to look like a remake of the film Airplane.

Imagine the scene, first you have the smiling Brit from Leeds playing it cool and arranging a ‘selfie’. Then you have the person who who took the video footage of him having that selfie getting the best angle from a few rows back. Finally a selfie from one of thestewardesses comes to light – after all the crew can’t be outdone by the passengers!

Then use your imagination. Everyone on the plane suddenly whips out their iPhones, pods, pads – they all want a selfie to commemorate the occasion! You can just picture the scene in the cabin. Row upon row of panic stricken passengers, arms outstretched trembling fingers gripping mobile devices as the hijacker looks on. Every detail of the drama is captured, the black box suddenly becomes redundant and leaves the plane in a disgust. Every detail of the unfolding drama is captured from multiple angles, each shot has its own hero/cameraman. Everyone is suddenly a movie star, what a day for the ego!

I dread to imagine the situation in the cockpit! Perhaps the pilot kept muttering “Don’t call me Shirley!” into his iPhone as the drama unfolded?

No wonder the hijacker guy gave up he must have had stage fright!

Anyway, good to see a return of the British stiff upper lip in the face of adversity. Glad it all turned out okay in the end.


Will Trump Quit the Race?

By: by Sam Vaknin | Gulag Bound


Even his most ardent foes agree that Trump is not stupid and that he is a relentless fighter. Based on what flimsy evidence? His own repeated and vociferous reassurances, of course. Yet, when we apply the cold instruments of psychology to both boasts, they appear to be decidedly shaky.

(I will dispense with his claim that he is intelligent by referring the reader to the incredible transcripts of his recent interviews with the New York Times and the Washington Post. As he emerges from these painful exchanges, he makes Sarah Palin look like a towering intellect by comparison. Scoring well in all manner of IQ tests requires an endowed vocabulary, an awareness and knowledge of current affairs — which indicates curiosity, a pillar and hallmark of intelligence — and analytic skills. Trump demonstrates not a hint of these three.)

His second attempt at self-portrayal as a dauntless warrior merits much deeper study.
