TMZ paparazzo tries to ambush Hillary Clinton on $10 bill: ‘Does Oprah have a chance?’

Published

on

This is what a “gotcha” question actually looks like.

A TMZ photographer approached Hillary Clinton as she was signing autographs Sunday in Washington, D.C.’s Georgetown neighborhood and asked the Democratic frontrunner which woman should replace Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill.

“Hillary, do you think Maya Angelou should be considered for the $10 bill?” asked TMZ’s photographer Colin Drummond, who is known for ambushing — or “stalking,” according to Politicopolitical figures and other celebrities in the nation’s capital.

Someone off-camera suggests Rosa Parks, and Clinton briefly looks up from the paper she’s signing to address Drummond.

“Well, there are a number of women — you know, I was sort of amazed that the Republicans couldn’t think of one American woman who could be on the $10 bill,” Clinton says, laughing and then returning to signing autographs.

She was referring to a question at last week’s GOP debate that found candidates scrambling to think of American women to honor on the updated currency.

“I could give them a really long list, if they’re interested, and those are both good suggestions,” Clinton says, turning to sign another autograph.

Drummond asks who she would consider a good person to honor on the $10 bill as Clinton continues signing autographs.

“Oh, there’s a lot of them,” she says, as someone promises this would be the last autograph request.

“Does Oprah have a chance?” asks Drummond, who once sold a photo of the talk show host that purported to show that she had six toes.

“I think they said the person has to have already passed,” Clinton says, looking up from her autograph and then laughing. “Obviously, we don’t want that happening to her.”

Drummond thanks Clinton for her time as she walks to a waiting car, and TMZ posted the video Monday morning with the headline: “Hillary Clinton Rips GOP for $10 Bill Gaffe … Then Makes Her Own.”

The gossip website argued in its writeup that Clinton had cracked the door “wide open” with her slam against Republicans who named foreign women or their wives, mothers or daughters.

“Watch what happens when Colin asks for that list,” TMZ reported. “Lotsa crickets in D.C. this time o’ year.”

Pulitzer Prize-winner reveals why the White House thinks Trump’s Ukraine scandal ‘can be spun as positive’

Published

on

Despite the growing movement for impeachment, advisors to President Donald Trump believe the bombshell reports about soliciting foreign election interference from Ukraine can be "spun as a positive" for the president's 2020 re-election campaign.

Ashley Parker, a White House reporter for The Washington Post, was interviewed about the thinking of Trump's advisors by MSNBC's Steve Kornacki on Monday.

"This is a White House, a Trump White House, that is used to being under siege. There was of course the two-and-a-half-year saga with the Mueller investigation culminating in the Mueller report, Mueller’s testimony recently. There have been a million other controversies, flare-ups, moments when the White House was forced to defend a comment from the president, allegation against the president, these sorts of things," Kornacki noted.
