Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton went to the source of “Scandal” when she chose an industry professional to create a video depicting her life.
But she didn’t choose wisely. Shonda Rhimes is the creator of the hit TV series “Scandal,” and “Scandal” would have been an apt subtitle to Clinton’s life story.
Although the setting is familiar, the Clinton scandals are a bit different from those portrayed in the salacious ABC drama, which is about “a Washington fixer caught up in a steamy web of sex and betrayal,” according to The New York Times, which reported:
Another video highlighting Mrs. Clinton’s achievement as the first woman to capture a major party’s nomination for president was pulled at the last minute on Tuesday. It also included sepia-toned images of Dorothy Rodham’s [Clinton’s mother] childhood. A spokesman said several videos were under consideration for the evening.
This wasn’t Rhimes’ first effort on behalf of the former secretary of state. She also created a TV ad for Clinton during the primary season.
One of the early Clinton scandals centered on the mysterious death of former Clinton White House counsel Vince Foster, who was found dead from a gun shot in a Washington, D.C., park. A shredded document purporting to be a suicide note was found days later in his briefcase.
Interestingly enough, in addition to “Scandal,” Rhimes created “How to Get Away with Murder.”
An encyclopedic list of Clinton’s scandals could fill volumes, but Life Daily compiled what its editors thought were her 16 most notorious, including those involving her email server, Whitewater and Benghazi.
The association of Clinton with the creator of “Scandal” wasn’t totally lost on social media.
