Hillary Clinton Gets Friendly With ‘Squirrel’ The RNC Sent To Stalk Her (VIDEO)

Hillary Clinton on Tuesday gave a signed copy of her new memoir “Hard Choices” to a Republican National Committee intern in a squirrel costume who’s been following her book tour.

Clinton approached the squirrel, clad in a t-shirt reading “Another Clinton in the White House is Nuts,” just before her CNN town hall event outside the Newseum in Washington, DC.

“Hello Mr. Squirrel, how are you?” Clinton said with a smile. “I know you’ve been following me around and while you’re in between your gigs. I wanted you to get a copy of my book.”

“I hope that you will make the hard choice and read my book,” she added. “But you bring a smile to a lot of people’s face.”

The squirrel quietly accepted the peace offering from Clinton but was more vocal on Twitter.

“Thank you, @HillaryClinton! I love fiction!” the squirrel later tweeted.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
