Hillary Clinton Under Fire

I certainly do remember that trip to Bosnia, and as Togo said, there was a saying around the White House that if a place was too small, too poor, or too dangerous, the president couldn't go, so send the First Lady. That’s where we went. I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.

Look, I don't really understand it, but there are lots of people who want to borrow combat experiences. Plenty of guys running around with fake medals, and lots of war stories.

Senator Clinton, believe me if you were under fire you would remember every fucking detail. It's absolutely terrifying, it would have been doubly so with your daughter next to you.

Get a fucking grip, you had probably more troops covering you and that airport then when Baghdad John McCain put the 101st Airborne in harms way for his Shorja Market Photo-op. It's fun, titillating even, to pretend you came under fire, oohhhh... remember that mom? No, because it didn't fucking happen.
