Carville Shames Child-Killing Clinton Foundation Critics: ‘Somebody’s Going to Hell Over This’

The Clinton Foundation is taking its turn in the anti-Hillary Clinton barrel this week, as critics of the former secretary of state have brought roiling criticism of the charitable foundation to the surface using recent email revelations, and the foundation’s own announcement that it will cease taking foreign donations if Secretary Clinton is elected president. On Tuesday morning’s Morning Joe, longtime Clinton loyalist and Democratic strategist James Carville conceded the political wisdom of the foundation’s move, but blasted the critics crusading against it as Hell-bound child murderers.

Along the way, Carville also won himself the award for Best Distinction Made During a Cable News Segment when he gave separate opinions as a political adviser, and as a human being:

As a political adviser, of course. As a human being, I’m not sure. As a human being I think the foundation does an enormous amount of good, but from strictly political standpoint, like my sixth grade teacher says, somebody is going to hell over this. Understand here, this is saving people’s lives.

Host Joe Scarborough reacted with skepticism, explaining that, “…if it’s a great charity it can stand on its own,” and asserting that keeping Bill Clinton from raising money for the foundation would not mean “children dying across the planet,” to which Carville emphatically interjected, “They’re gonna!”

Carville also pointed out that former President Bill Clinton is a respected and persuasive figure worldwide with a surfeit of “charm.”
