This Story of Former UN Ambassador Samantha Power's Election Night Party Will Make Your Day

This is so funny.

I mean, I’ve said since the election that the good news is, Hillary lost. The bad news is, Trump won. The character of neither was the kind that earned my trust or my vote.


The policies of Clinton, along with a host of scandals, from Benghazi to the email servers (and so many other that all seem to orbit around the Clinton name) made her the worst candidate in political history.

She was so bad that she lost to a ridiculous, reality TV clod, who could otherwise only garner about 30 to 35 percent of the vote of his chosen party during the primaries.

The miscalculation of the Democrat party was in placing identity politics over reasonable policy.

They got their “first African American president” with Obama, so it was time for the first female president. As those hacked DNC emails proved, they were even willing to knife one of their own in the back to make sure the heir apparent to carry on the social justice experimentation on American citizens could carry on.

I’m not completely sure, but I have the sneaking suspicion that after Queen Hillary, the target would be to run a transgender dwarf.

(Is “dwarf” the politically correct term? Don’t @ me.)

The point is, the Democrat party is out of ideas, and the ones they cling to are just really bad. None of that has convinced them identity politics will not save them. They are convinced of their own moral superiority (UGH).

So convinced was Obama’s Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power that today we’d all be talking about the latest scandal with “President Hillary”, that she decided to throw a party on election night for all her fellow female ambassadors.


This was to be a monumental night for their lady parts.

“Well, I’ve had a lot of bad ideas in my life, but none as immortalized as this one,” Power, who served as the ambassador to the U.N. during the Obama administration, told Politico in an interview published Monday.

OH, it gets better.

She invited female ambassadors, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, and Gloria Steinem over, and had HBO film crews in as part of a documentary called “The Final Year.”

“I thought, what an amazing night for them,” Power told Politico of the 37 female ambassadors to the U.N. “I mean, that’s what America represents to the world, when a glass ceiling is shattered in our country, it creates a whole new sense of possibility for people everywhere.”

Power said she hoped the election wouldn’t be “quite the blowout that it was anticipated to be,” as she wanted her attendees to have more time to interact with Steinem.

Yes, of course. Just stretch things out, a bit. Give them more time to preen and talk about how empowered they felt.

This is probably the stupidest – and by “stupidest,” I mean funniest – things you’ll read about, all day.

They’re set to really celebrate this historic achievement for womankind, and it really didn’t go well.

At all.

“You really see what so many people went through, which was all of that sense of promise and excitement, and frankly, a dose of complacency,” she said. “And then, it slowly dawning on us that not only was this going to be much closer than anybody anticipated, but that it was not going to end well.”


Seriously, as disgusted as I am about a Trump presidency, I could hear stories like this all day and just crack up, every time!

Hillary was not owed the presidency! She had to earn it, and she fell short.

Still, Powers laments the future for her daughter (because liberal policies have somehow been such a prize for women – as evidenced by the fact that they’re still screaming about inequality).

While describing her 4 year old lying in her lap:

“And there’s something about the way she’s lying, I don’t know, that just makes her look like she’s the one who’s going to inherit … she’s going to inherit this—what he does is on her, right?” Power said.

Yes, the future rolls on and the youth will inherit what comes after all of this. Somehow, people make it, but it’s rarely through the identity politics she and her liberal cohorts promote.

I’m sure all that played well for the cameras, however.
