Hillary makes Palin-like gaffe and you won’t hear a word about it: ‘South Korea is literally within miles of …’

A gaffe this week by failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton ranks right up there with Sarah Palin’s “I can see Russia from my front porch” line.

…except Hillary actually said it, whereas Palin never did — it was actually actress Tina Fey, in Sarah Palin persona, who uttered the infamous phrase.

Doing the media rounds to plug her book, Clinton was in the comfortable environs of “The Rachel Maddow Show” when she criticized President Donald Trump’s handling of the threat posed by North Korea.

“The president has basically insulted and attacked South Korea. South Korea is literally, you know, within miles of the border with North Korea,” she told Maddow, who nodded in agreement.

“They would be so at risk if something were done by Kim Jong Un.”

The embarrassing remark is comical, given the two countries border one another. And it comes from a woman who went on to call Trump “a clear and present danger to our country.”

Clinton’s comment about insulting South Korea was a reference to a tweet earlier this month by Trump that read: “South Korea is finding, as I have told them, that their talk of appeasement with North Korea will not work, they only understand one thing!”


The unmerciful ridicule directed at Palin by much of the media over the “front porch” remark from Fey was quick to come to mind for social media users.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
