Hillary Clinton Awkwardly Shouts Her Way Through Speech: ‘Why Aren’t I 50 Points Ahead?!’


clinton-7-e1474566318260Hillary Clinton addressed the Laborers’ International Union of North America Wednesday via teleconference, in a clip that surfaced online Thursday. But despite sitting in a dark room by herself, Clinton maintained the volume and tone she might use for a packed campaign rally. The result was… well, see for yourself.

“Now having said all this, why aren’t I 50 points ahead, you might ask,” she shouted in one particular animated moment. “Well, the choice for working families has never been clearer.”

The social media reaction (especially from conservatives) was immediate and harsh. “Hillary Clinton forgets to use her inside voice during labor union speech,” snarked The Week. The most common comparison was to Will Ferrell‘s Saturday Night Live character who suffered from Voice Immodulation Disorder.

Even U.S. Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse got in on the fun.
