On Sunday, Hillary Clinton spoke at the United States Conference of Mayors where she spoke about a number of her platform points. She focused on attacking Republican Donald Trump’s positions on a number of topics, although she never mentioned him by name. Clinton also spoke about gun control saying that it is imperative to act and reduce gun violence. She cited surveys which indicate that the vast majority of Americans and gun owners alike support mandatory background checks for the purchase of a firearm. Clinton said, “I know we can respect the 2nd Amendment and make common sense reforms.” A video of Clinton’s speech is below:

Earlier in the day, Clinton marched in the New York City Pride Parade where she joined Governor Andrew Cuomo, Mayor Bill de Blasio, and Rev. Al Sharpton. The Pride Parade celebrates the LGBT community and the monumental Supreme Court ruling that ensures states cannot block same-sex marriage. The court’s ruling was announced a year ago today.

Clinton Appears on SNL

snl4n-4-webOn last night’s season premiere of Saturday Night Live, Hillary Rodham Clinton made a guest appearance playing “Val” the bartender. Typically politicians play themselves on SNL, so it was interesting seeing Clinton out of character. However, there was a “Hillary Clinton” in the sketch, played by SNL cast member Kate McKinnon. “Val” councils a troubled “Clinton” and the two discuss “Clinton’s” rough 22 years and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, which results in “Val” giving her best Trump impression. The two ended the sketch by singing “Lean on Me.” Following a commercial break, Clinton stuck around to introduce host and musical guest Miley Cyrus. A video of the sketch is below.

On Friday, Clinton was asked by an Entertainment Tonight reporter how she felt about appearing on SNL, a show that has impersonated her a number of times throughout her career. She said, “They come at it from a slightly different perspective, and I learn something about myself watching them pretending to be me, so I’m looking forward to spending the time with Kate. I mean, I’m just thrilled that he’s got these amazing women doing these impersonations. I want to see how it goes.” This is not Clinton’s first appearance on the show as she also appeared on SNL during her 2008 campaign. The clip below is from the Entertainment Tonight interview.

The campaign for Hillary Rodham Clinton announced that Clinton has agreed to appear before the House Benghazi Committee on October 22. The committee has been pressuring Clinton to appear for months and had indicated that they wanted her to testify behind closed doors. Clinton agreed to testify in a public hearing, however. She is expected to be asked about her knowledge of the 2012 attack on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, and she will also be asked about the personal email server she used while serving as Secretary of State. More details will be posted when they are available.

“Talk to Your Baby” Campaign Launch

Wednesday, April 1, 2015

AP969155414883Hillary Rodham Clinton appeared with New York City First Lady Chirlane McCray at SCO/FirstStepNYC, a pre-kindergarten center in Brooklyn, New York. At the center, McCray and Clinton launched a program called “Talk to your Baby.” The initiative, partnered with the Clinton Foundation’s “Too Small to Fail” early childhood education program, is geared toward getting parents to talk to their children at a young age to help their development. Clinton’s appearance in Brooklyn raised eyebrows as she is expected to announce her candidacy for president in the coming weeks and headquarter in Brooklyn. Her appearance with McCray is also unsurprising as her and her husband, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, have been long supporters of Clinton.

During a roundtable discussion with parents, Clinton said, “You are literally building your baby’s brain to better prepare that little boy or little girl to do well in school and do well in life. So from every experience, your child will be learning words, developing a vocabulary, making it possible to better prepare that child for school.”

A video from this event will be posted when/if available.

PX1197762453600710_3132009bHillary Rodham Clinton and Chelsea Clinton met the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge today as a part of their short visit to the United States. They met at a reception held at the official residence of the British Consul General, Danny Lopez. A number of wildlife charities were represented at the reception which was co-hosted by the Duke and Duchess’s Royal Foundation and the Clinton Foundation. Clinton (who recently became a grandmother) and the Duchess (who is five months pregnant) briefly spoke about the importance of child development. The Duke gave a brief speech about the black market for animal hides and ivory saying, “It’s easy to blame others for the problem – demand in South East Asia, not enough protection on the ground, and so on. But, if I may say, we could start with looking closer to home. Our own nations still have thriving black markets in these products, and we have to raise the game at home as well as abroad.”
