Campaign Email Shows Staff Desperately Trying to Find Photo Ops to Show Hillary Doing ‘Everyday Jobs’
An email from Hillary’s campaign shows the desperate moves staffers have had to consider in order to make people see Hillary Clinton as a normal, approachable, everyday American they can relate to. Staffers had been considering arranging photo ops depicting Hillary doing everyday jobs.
An email addressed to Clinton’s campaign chief John Podesta and high-ranking staffers Jennifer Palmieri and Charlie Baker, titled “a humble suggestion,” was sent to help Team Hillary “combat the meme” that she is “out of touch” with the American people.
The message was sent by liberal talk show host and former Michigan Democratic Governor Jennifer M. Granholm and suggested that Clinton’s campaign should start “taking a page from former Florida Senator Bob Graham, and doing, say, 8 ‘work days’ over the next 15 months.”
The Canadian-born Granholm went on to explain how the campaign would go about this scheme to convince Americans that Hillary isn’t really a privileged, rich, white woman.
