Hillary Clinton makes racist ‘They all look alike’ comment regarding Cory Booker, Eric Holder

During a new Hillary Clinton interview with Recode’s Kara Swisher, the interviewer got two black leaders confused: Cory Booker and former AG Eric Holder.

Swisher asked the 2016 Democratic President candidate if she thought of Cory Booker saying that “we kick them in the shins” is how Democrats should respond to Republican election tactics. Clinton quickly corrected the remark by accurately stating that it was Holder who made that statement.

As Swisher apologized and corrected herself only, the former Secretary of State responded with this racist remark: “Yeah. I know they all look alike.”

Swisher, perhaps catching on a bit too late to what every last Democrat probably hopes was just an innocent wisecrack, no matter how tasteless, quickly said, “No, they don’t,” before saying: “Oh, well done.”

Recode published a transcript from the interview, confirming Clinton’s inappropriate joke which was initially overshadowed by the widespread reports from the same event that she said she would “like to be president.”

Okay. So: “Are the Democrats becoming the victim of too much political correctness?” Just a few more. I know you have to go.

Okay, no … look, I think … I think this is a much tougher question than it sounds because the easy answer is, well, you know, “We don’t want political correctness. We just want people to express themselves and be honest and authentic in what they say and believe.” But I think it’s also the case that what’s often called political correctness is politeness. It’s not being rude and insulting to people. It’s respecting the diversity that we have in our society. So, I don’t know exactly how to answer that because, you know, the Democratic party is a much more diverse political party attracting people who are African-American, Latino, LGBT, whatever the reason why people feel more comfortable where they are taken in, where they are included as part of a political movement or party.

And I don’t think it’s politically correct to say we value that. And I don’t wanna go around insulting people. I don’t wanna paint with a broad brush. “Every immigrant is this. Every African-American is that. Every, you know, every person with different religious beliefs or whatever” … you know, that’s childish.

What do think of Cory Booker’s and his comment, and feel free-

Oh, I adore him-

No, what do you think about him saying, “Kick them in the shins” … essentially … start to get to that kind of political-

Well, that was Eric Holder.

Eric Holder, oh, Eric Holder, sorry.

Yeah, I know they all look alike.

No they don’t. Oh, well done. Now, Hillary …

I was paid by Mark Zuckerberg to do that.

Okay. Can I just say-

No, what I-
