Like the bad penny of the political world that she has always been, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently used the occasion of an interview with TV personality Andy Cohen to needle conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas about a possible decision to retire, as the Washington Examiner reports.
Clinton’s predictably grating remarks came during an appearance on Cohen’s Bravo show Watch What Happens Live, during which she and daughter Chelsea were promoting their new joint-venture documentary series, Gutsy.
Hillary trolls foes
Cohen’s program typically features a segment known as “Host Talkative,” and during that portion of his visit with Clinton, he displayed images of well-known personalities and asked her to respond with the first thing that popped into her head, according to the New York Daily News.
When a photo of Justice Thomas came onto the screen, the former first lady’s response was simply, “Don’t you want to retire?” drawing guffaws from Cohen as well as her daughter.
An image of former first lady Melania Trump was also put on the screen for Clinton’s commentary, and to that, the former senator from New York snarkily indicated that she would ask, “Umm…How’s your summer going?” in an apparent reference to the FBI’s raid of the Trump family’s Florida estate.

That retort received similar approval from the host and the former first daughter, who has been collaborating with her mother to produce a series of documentaries showcasing women deemed to have made brave or bold decisions in their lives.
Stay classy, liberals
Since no encounter with a Clinton is complete without something a bit tawdry thrown into the mix, during his interview with the former first lady, Cohen – himself openly gay – shocked his guest by revealing that he once engaged in what he called a “wonderful liaison” with a Secret Service agent who served on her security detail while her husband was president, as the Independent reported.
“I do have to say, every time I see you, Secretary Clinton, I think I had a wonderful liaison with one of your secret service agents in the 90s,” Cohen explained.
Chelsea Clinton appeared aghast by the declaration, and her mother quickly attempted to tamp down further exploration of the topic by saying, “TMI! TMI!”
Cohen did, however, add that the agent in question “had wonderful things to say about your entire family,” an assertion that stands in stark contrast to other reports about the reputation Mrs. Clinton earned among agents during the years at issue.
As author Ronald Kessler famously documented several years ago, Mrs. Clinton’s treatment of Secret Service agents, military personnel, and police assigned to her were notoriously abusive, and “as soon as the cameras are gone, her angry personality, nastiness, and imperiousness become evident,” something millions of Americans intuitively have long understood.
