It turns out that Sinbad supports Obama. Oops again for Hillary.
He remembers that trip to Bosnia that he made with her and Sheryl Crow. He has a somewhat different recollection on the trip.
Clinton, during a late December campaign appearance in Iowa, described a hair-raising corkscrew landing in war-torn Bosnia, a trip she took with her then-teenage daughter, Chelsea. “They said there might be sniper fire,” Clinton said.
Threat of bullets? Sinbad doesn’t remember that, either.
“I never felt that I was in a dangerous position. I never felt being in a sense of peril, or ‘Oh, God, I hope I’m going to be OK when I get out of this helicopter or when I get out of his tank.’”
In her Iowa stump speech, Clinton also said, “We used to say in the White House that if a place is too dangerous, too small or too poor, send the First Lady.”
Say what? As Sinbad put it: “What kind of president would say, ‘Hey, man, I can’t go ’cause I might get shot so I’m going to send my wife…oh, and take a guitar player and a comedian with you.’”
A Clinton surrogate replied that even Sinbad has been to Bosnia, and Obama has not. Whatever, man. The fact remains that Clinton is exaggerating her accomplishments.
And to continue that little tangent we have been on… Obama’s former advisor Samantha Power has reported from Bosnia. Clinton’s advisor Andrew Shapiro probably has not.
