Hillary Clinton: at home on Wall Street

First off, my sincere apologies for the racist phrase white noise. If it is any consolation to those who take offense at the appearance of the word white in any context, save for the White House (maybe), white noise in this instance is being used as a synonym for “static,” which is generally regarded as bad or undesirable.

On to the story via the Washington Examiner:

[Hillary] Clinton, who was holding a fundraiser Thursday evening in Colorado, was speaking outside at a private residence. Just when she started to speak, according to CBS Denver’s Stan Bush, campaign staffers directed a speaker spewing out static noise at reporters hanging out across the street.

As the article notes, Bush tweeted out a video of the noise that began as the Democratic front-runner commenced her appeal for donations.

To give readers a complete sense of the experience vicariously, Bush also provided a clip of what it sounded like once the machine was turned off (which coincided, interestingly, with the end of the speech).

It could be a coincidence. After all, what could Hillary have said to Coloradans with deep pockets that she didn’t want the outside world to hear?

That question is meant rhetorically, but here’s a non-rhetorical followup question: What did Clinton say in her speeches to Wall Street giant Goldman Sachs that netted her $675,000 in speaking fees that she doesn’t want the outside world to hear? The content of those remarks has been shrouded in a white noise of its own.
