Fox News Guest Compares Hillary Clinton To “Jersey Shore” Cast [VIDEO]

Hillary Clinton has faced her fair share of unflattering comparisons over the years. She’s been called an “Ice Queen” and she’s been called the dreaded “b-word.” Not fun. But while those are certainly offensive and unkind, a new analogy may strain credulity to the max: Hillary Clinton as Snooki.
Yes, it’s true. Someone on Fox News compared Clinton to the cast of the “Jersey Shore.”
After photos emerged yesterday showing the Secretary of State drinking (gasp!) alcohol during a trip to Colombia, outrage was brewed and pearls were clutched.
But conservative commentator and Heritage Foundation Director Nile Gardiner upped the ante last night on Fox News program “Your World With Neil Cavuto” (hosted by guest Stuart Varney). And he offered up this little hyperbolic gem when addressing the Clinton drinking fauxtrage: “It’s as though she’s auditioning for the sixth series of ‘Jersey Shore’ rather than representing America on the world stage.”
While it would seem that Gardiner’s gravest error here was making an analogy so absurd it would undermine his entire argument, he’s actually made a more crucial mistake. The Director of the Margaret Thatcher Center For Freedom at the Heritage Foundation just implicitly admitted to watching “The Jersey Shore” on national television.
