In today’s broadcast of The View, a back-from hiatus Barbara Walters had some advice for Hillary Clinton in lieu of her letter to NBC News president Steve Capus suggesting that David Shuster should be whacked for his “pimped out” comment: “Sometimes you say something unfortunate,” Walters said. “You apologize, [Shuster] is getting suspended, he apologized, MSNBC apologized. Drop it already! It’s okay. He made a mistake.”
Detecting the subtext? Walters would have never addressed Clinton in this fashion (i.e., calling her high-strung and lacking wisdom and restraint) if HRC wasn’t widely regarded as being on the ropes in the Democratic primary battle. Nobody will acknowledge this (cue angry retort from mutinyco), but a female politician getting shit from The View means it’s the beginning of the end.
