Great moments in optics: Kids’ event canceled so Hillary can re-launch her campaign

Hillary Clinton will re-launch her campaign on Roosevelt Island in Manhattan (used to be known as “Welfare Island,” I kid you not) later this month, and she’s already demonstrating that you can’t make a “for the children” omelette without breaking a few hearts:

Hillary Clinton’s campaign didn’t pick the best time to stage a major campaign rally at Four Freedoms Park on Roosevelt Island later this month.

According to the park’s website, a specially planned event for tots called Imagination Playground — which features unique blue building blocks — has been canceled to accommodate the Democratic frontrunner for president.

Also at risk of major inconvenience: an annual celebration called Roosevelt Island Day, which features a blood drive, hot dog stands and free rides for kids.

It’s for your own good, kids, so just shut up and keep hammering the server.

The children can have the park back that day if they can figure out how to raise $100,000 for the Clinton Foundation by the end of the week.


Now Hillary’s actually “joking” about how secure her homebrew server was compared to the White House. Those who consider it a privileged to be mocked by a Clinton will still gladly vote for her.
