Bill and Hillary Clinton and ‘The Great Gatsby’

From the 1990’s until recently, writers have made a connection between Bill Clinton and Jay Gatsby of “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Wired.com in 2011, The Orlando Sentinel in 2000 and The Gay Patriot in 2008 all waxed poetically, and sadly, about the Bill Clinton/Jay Gatsby connection. They are so wrong.

If you haven’t read the book or seen the 1949, 1974 or 2013 (yuck) movie versions, here is a summary from Thug Notes (love). Oh, btw, very strong language aka bad words:

No, Bill Clinton isn’t Jay Gatsby anymore than Leonardo Dicaprio is Jay Gatsby. Bill and Hillary Clinton are Tom and Daisy Buchanan. Check out this quote from the novel “The Great Gatsby” describing Tom and Daisy Buchanan:

“They were careless people, Tom and Daisy- they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made.”

FBI director James Comey even used the word “careless” when describing the actions of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in his July 5, 2016 statement:

Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.

For decades, the Clinton’s have climbed to the highest heights and left the land littered with people they have smashed up.

For instance:

1. Susan McDougal– along with her late, ex-husband was a partner with the Clinton’s in the Whitewater Land Deal. Susan McDougal went to prison rather than testify against the Clinton’s, received a full pardon from Bill Clinton and is currently a chaplain.

2. Paula Jones– was an Arkansas State employee who was brought to a hotel room, Bill Clinton dropped trou and told her to kiss it. Clinton paid her $850,000 and dragged her through the mud.

3. Juanita Broaddrick – allegedly raped by Bill Clinton and threatened by Hillary Clinton. Tom Buchanan broke his mistress’s nose in “The Great Gatsby”. Bill Clinton allegedly bit Juanita Broaddrick’s lip and told her to put some ice on it. Subsequently, Hillary backed Miss Broaddrick into a corner and threatened her, allegedly.

4. Billy Dale and the Travel Office employees – Hillary Clinton didn’t just have the White House Travel Office employees fired “to get our people in there”. No, Mrs. Clinton tried to ruin their lives and futures.

5. Monica Lewinsky – a naive intern, used and abused by both of the Clinton’s.

And, now Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner are caught in the Clinton tornado of carelessness. No. I do not feel sorry for either of them. Anthony Weiner is a smug pervert and Huma Abedin is a sick ticket for staying with a man she knew was a perv. But, neither Huma or Anthony stood a chance. Ever.

The Clinton’s will move on to her Presidency (thanks to the Republican inability to coalesce around anything) and Anthony Weiner will go, rightly, to jail. Huma won’t get to go to the White House with Hillary and may do time. Anthony won’t get a pardon. Huma will get a pardon.

Bill and Hillary are insulated from their actions by their wealth, a compliant press and knowing all the right people and believing in all the right causes. Bill and Hillary Clinton leave smashed lives and things behind them, just like Tom and Daisy Buchanan in “The Great Gatsby”.

    Nah. They’re the Thernadiers:

    Beggar at the feast!
    Master of the dance!
    Life is easy pickings
    If you grab your chance.
    Everywhere you go
    Law-abiding folk
    Doing what is decent
    But they’re mostly broke!
    Singing to the Lord on Sundays
    Praying for the gifts He’ll send.
    But we’re the ones who take it
    We’re the ones who make it in the end!
