Internet Notices Something HUMILIATING About Bill Clinton At Shimon Peres’ Funeral
Former President Bill Clinton attended former Israeli President Shimon Peres’ funeral — as former world leader, it’s more or less expected.
But as Bill Clinton, he had another role to fill — looking absolutely ridiculous at a somber event.
Clinton came to the funeral sporting a yarmulke — a normally respectful gesture. Hopefully, in spite of how he wore it, those in attendance were able to appreciate the … effort.
Somehow, none of his entourage managed to notice just how oddly placed the yarmulke was on Bill’s head, and a screenshot from whitehouse.gov captured what may be the best candid shot of all time.
For those who are unaware how exactly this piece of clothing is supposed to be worn, look to the gentleman two spaces to the right of Clinton (Clinton’s left) in the picture.
Then look back at Bill Clinton. Not even close.
I mean, yikes.
Peres’ funeral marked the end of one of the most long-lived political careers in history, in which he served not only as president, but also as prime minister and an interim prime minister — twice in both positions.
He was a contemporary in leadership from President John F. Kennedy (from whom he negotiated the importation of arms not long before Kennedy’s assassination) to President Barack Obama.
It may be best to end with one of his most appropriate quotes:
“Sometimes people ask me, ‘What is the greatest achievement you have reached in your lifetime or that you will reach in the future?’ So I reply that there was a great painter named Mordecai Ardon, who was asked which picture was the most beautiful he had ever painted. Ardon replied, ‘The picture I will paint tomorrow.’ That is also my answer.”
Peres painted a wonderful picture indeed, and he will be sorely missed.
