On Monday, America Rising PAC tweeted a Vine of Hillary Clinton telling a supporter to “go to the end of the line” as proof she had no time for you proles:

“If Scott Walker had told a woman to go to the end of the line, how big on the front page of the New York Times would the ‘War on Women Scott Walker has Launched’ type be?” Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy asked yesterday.
But the video just as quickly engendered pushback for being selectively edited. Fuller context revealed Clinton was making her way through a crowd and then spent several minutes signing paraphernalia. Clinton was simply telling people to form a line if they wanted something signed.
On Tuesday’s episode of The Five, co-host Greg Gutfeld called out America Rising for the video. Via Media Matters:
“She said [to] the woman to go to the end of the line, because that’s where you get your stuff signed. She wasn’t being rude. This thing that’s from America Rising was out of context, and when companies do stuff like that, we no longer trust you. Because I don’t know what to believe, but if you look at the whole video, she was saying, oh I’m shaking these hands, if you meet me over on the other side, you could sign it. She wasn’t being rude at all. Believe me, there are too many problems with Hillary. We don’t need to do this.”
“I agree with you,” co-host Dana Perino said. “I didn’t think it was that bad.”
