Gutfeld: Hillary Appointing Bill to Oversee Economy Seems Like a 'Bait-and-Switch'
Hillary Clinton’s announcement that she would appoint husband Bill to oversee the economy seems highly ironic given her intrinsic campaign platform, says Greg Gutfeld.
“Isn’t it strange, gender has been the crux of her sales pitch all this time, until now when her campaign is struggling?” he said on The Five.
“The lesson Hillary Clinton seems to be imparting: ‘vote for me, but you get the dude instead.’ In business terms, that’s called the bait-and-switch.”
Gutfeld noted another of Clinton’s comments in 1992, when she said “I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies.”
“It’s weird, campaigning as the first woman, then selling the man,” he said.
“Here, we’re on the verge of a historical moment, and she’s saying, ‘Don’t fret, America,’ my hubby’s going to handle the hard stuff.’”
Kimberly Guilfoyle also weighed in, saying that Clinton “really shot herself in the foot this time.”
“Her whole thing is, ‘Vote for me, I’m the woman, I can handle it. I’ve got the experience.’ And first thing she does about the number one issue in all the exit polls, is the economy and jobs,” she said.
“And she says, ‘Don’t worry, twofer: we’re gonna get Bubba to do it.’”
