WASHINGTON – Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton remarked about how Southerners talk slow at Thursday’s House Benghazi Committee hearing.
“I talk a little slower” than other congressmen, said Georgia Rep. Lynn Westmoreland when he started asking Clinton questions at the hearing, asking Clinton to bear with him.
“I lived in Arkansas for a long time,” Clinton said, appropriating a vaguely southern twang. “I don’t need a translator, congressman.”
Westmoreland was not necessarily referring to his Southern accent.
Also, Westmoreland is from Georgia, not Arkansas.
And Westmoreland was not speaking a different language of the South that would require a translator.
