Hillary Clinton — the most qualified, smartest and healthiest person ever to seek the presidency EVER! — emailed aide Huma Abedin because she was having trouble working the phone system.
The Secretary of State was attempting to call Rep. Diane Watson, who was announcing her retirement from Congress.
In an email released by Wikileaks, Clinton admitted she was having difficulty making the call.
“I’d like to call her,” Clinton wrote to Abedin on February 10, 2010.
“But right now I’m fighting w the WH operator who doesn’t believe I am who I say and wants my direct office line even tho I’m not there and I just gave him my home # and the State Dept # and told him I had no idea what my direct office # was since I didn’t call myself and I just hung up,” Clinton wrote before calling herself a “properly dependent” Secretary of State replying on her aide.
“No independent dialing allowed,” Clinton concluded.
Note she referred to the operator as a “him.”
Yet another example of male (and probably white) privilege trying to keep Hillary Clinton oppressed!
