Cal Thomas: 'Media Treated Obama as a Messiah, They’re Going to Treat Hillary as the Virgin Mary'
As NewsBusters reported last week, America's media were in total swoon mode over Hillary Clinton following her testimony before Congress.
On Saturday, syndicated columnist Cal Thomas said of their behavior on Fox News Watch, "They're going to part the waters like Moses did the Red Sea to give her a clear path to be the first woman president...They treated [Barack Obama] as a Messiah, they’re going to treat her as the Virgin Mary" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
JON SCOTT, HOST: So has the media put it to bed? Is it all over and done with now?
CAL THOMAS: Well, probably so. But look, what they're going to do with Hillary Clinton is the same thing they did for Barack Obama. They're going to part the waters like Moses did the Red Sea to give her a clear path to be the first woman president. We’ve had the first African-American president, now the first woman president. They treated him as a Messiah, they’re going to treat her as the Virgin Mary.
SCOTT: And do you think, Jim, that the media are sort of helping set up a potential 2016 Hillary Clinton run?
JIM PINKERTON: That's been accused. Some have said so.
Indeed. What we saw last week is the media will do anything to get Hillary elected in 2016.
