Hillary Clinton just doesn’t “get” it.

No matter how many times she is caught in a prevarication, a lie, an untruth, a fib, she denies it wide-eyed and rages about the unfair treatment by Republicans and the vast rightwing conspiracy.

Hillary and her husband – a president who was impeached and lost his law license for perjury after lying under oath to a grand jury – have spent their lives in the public eye reminding the American public at every opportunity that they are the smartest people in the room, the most qualified for any job they want and anyone who can’t see that immediately is… well, deplorable. Irredeemably deplorable.

So, it shouldn’t come as a complete surprise that Hillary and her campaign handlers planted a teenaged actress in the audience at a town hall meeting as an excuse to keep the attacks on Donald Trump’s attitude toward women front and center in the media.

The problem Hillary had – again, is that the clumsy and transparent ploy was quickly exposed.

The performance came at a sparsely attended event in the key battleground state of Pennsylvania where Clinton appeared with her daughter, Chelsea, and actress Elizabeth Banks serving as emcee.

After Clinton’s comments, Banks announced that questions would be taken and immediately called on a young woman with a red bow in her hair. In fact, no other questions were asked.

The teenage girl had been chosen to give an award-winning performance and read from notes:

“Hi Madam Secretary! I’m Brennan and I’m 15-years-old. At my school, body image is a really big issue for girls my age. I see with my own age the damage Donald Trump does when he talks about women and how they look. As the first female president, how would you undo some of that damage and help young girls understand that they are so much more than what they look like?”

Hillary burst out with a gleeful, “Thank you!” and the audience cheered.

Brennan is an actress and her father, Daylin Leach, is a Democrat member of the Pennsylvania State Senate.

He’s also a staunch Clinton supporter who uses his Facebook posts to slam Trump – most recently when he wrote how offended he was by Trump’s criticism of some women in the past.

Sen. Leach didn’t post about how offended or upset his daughter, Brennan, was with Trump’s comments, merely about how upset he was.

Apparently, Hillary has no compunctions whatsoever about using whoever moves her closer to achieving her lifelong ambition – even one of the female children claims to championing.
