Hillary Clinton names Angela Merkel her favorite world leader. America, you’ve been warned

Hillary Clinton gave America a warning it ought to heed Thursday when she named Angela Merkel as her favorite world leader.

Her response was a swipe at both Gary Johnson, who couldn’t name a world leader he liked in a recent interview, and Donald Trump who’s claimed that Clinton would be a U.S. version of the German chancellor.  Merkel has gained world-wide recognition, and a lot of scorn, for her open border policy toward millions of Syrian refugees, fundamentally transforming the country.

“Oh, let me think. Look, I like a lot of the world leaders,” she told reporters aboard her campaign plane in Chicago. “One of my favorites is Angela Merkel because I think she’s been an extraordinary, strong leader during difficult times in Europe, which has obvious implications for the rest of the world and, most particularly, our country.”

She said Merkel showed “leadership and steadiness on the Euro crisis,” and that “her bravery in the face of the refugee crisis is something that I am impressed by.”

“I hope I’ll have the opportunity to work with her in the future, but we could talk about lots of different leaders if you want to sometime,” Clinton said.

Many on social media were disturbed by Clinton’s choice.
