The hits just keep on coming for the Democratic presidential front-runner.
Fast on the heels of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s planned public testimony before the House Select Committee on Benghazi in October, a new motion picture, “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” is scheduled for release in January — just in time for the Democratic presidential primary season.
And progressives are already petrified, Dana Perino told Megyn Kelly Wednesday.
“The left and liberals are already so concerned about this movie that they’ve already put resources behind trying to tear it down,” “The Five” co-host said in an appearance on “The Kelly File.”
They probably should be worried. The movie is based on a 2014 book “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi” by journalist Michael Zuckoff with five former CIA contractors. As a Wall Street Journal reviewer put it, “it’s hard not to read this authoritative account as an indictment of the Obama administration’s tattered narrative.
Perino told Kelly that although it’s too early to tell — especially from only a trailer — it could showcase that others view Clinton as having an overly secretive and untrustworthy nature, “and will also do anything to help herself politically.”
“We don’t know what this movie could turn out to be,” Perino said. “It could make Hillary Clinton look very good. It might not even mention her at all. But the left is so concerned that they’re already going for it.”
Perino noted that it would be difficult to produce this film in Hollywood without the clout of veteran director Michael Bey.
“Look how they went after ‘American Sniper,’ Kelly said. “It’s gonna happen here again.”
