How phony is Hillary Clinton? Let me count the ways.

First there was Accentgate — her affecting a southern accent (for some inexplicable reason) to defend the governor of Arkansas (her nominal husband) against allegations of rape back in the Gennifer Flowers days.

Next was her short-lived “abuela” campaign, where she tried to kiss up to Hispanic voters by using Spanish straight out of Google Translator.

Her latest bit of shtick is harmless by comparison but still phony as the proverbial $3 bill. Here, courtesy of Twitter user Deplorable ‘D’ Owens, is a video of the “pre-game show” for a Clinton rally. The guy in the black t-shirt with the number 16 on the back is a handler or volunteer for Team Clinton. The signs he is passing out to the “crowd” (if that is the correct word) are supposed to look homemade so that when the news cameras come in, it will appear as though enthusiastic voters hand-lettered and brought their own signs.
