Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton was late getting back to the debate stage Saturday night because she didn’t want to share a restroom with a Martin O’Malley staffer.
As Breitbart News immediately reported during the debate, the ABC telecast came back from a commercial break with an empty Clinton podium. Clinton went back out onstage, said “Sorry,” and did not explain her absence. The mystery grew: Where was Hillary?
Clinton reportedly went to the ladies’ room during the commercial break, according to The Boston Globe. Clinton even had a campaign employee on bathroom duty to make sure Clinton could quickly get inside the restroom and return to the stage. But when that staffer let in O’Malley spokeswoman Lis Smith, Clinton waited outside.
Why would Clinton not share a restroom with Smith?
The gaffe was yet another embarrassment for Clinton, who stepped into trouble by falsely claiming that Donald Trump is “ISIS’ best recruiter” and that Islamic State radicals use Trump videos as recruitment tools. Clinton is also locked in a major war with the Bernie Sanders campaign over the campaigns’ shared access to Democratic National Committee data.
And the Clinton camp is reeling from a Breitbart News report that the DNC is really not so fair and impartial in this primary. How could it be? After all, the Clinton campaign is funding the DNC and its state-level get-out-the-vote efforts!
