Tweet of the Day: Hillary’s van parks in ‘handicapped’ space (Video)

“Somewhere in the Midwest,” Weasel Zippers quips, “a handicapped ‘everyday American’ is shut out of a parking space.” The “everyday American” reference is a riff on the term Hillary Clinton used in her announcement that she was running (again) for president, explaining that we ordinary citizens “need a champion” and that that’s a role she sees herself filling.

The “handicapped parking space” reference draws on a well-publicized still from a video showing her campaign van conspicuously parked half-in, half-out of space clearly designated as reserved for handicapped motorists.

RNC deputy communications director called attention to this slight in a tweet earlier today:

The video from which the image was extracted follows.

So what is to be made of the parking job? Weasel Zippers speculates that maybe it is a statement about Clinton’s physical condition or her lack of concern for the everyday Americans she claims to be eager to serve. Another possibility is that Clinton, who recently confessed to not having driven in two decades, decided to take a crack at parking the van herself and this is the best she was able to do. If so, she would not be the first Democrat to display difficulty parking a car.
