OK, the title might be a little off in that Barack Obama had in excess of 19 million fake Twitter followers. However, the true Saul Alinsky disciple, Hillary Rodham Clinton, has been exposed for having more than 2 million fake followers on Twitter or her followers never Tweet. And it gets worse, she’s buying fake Facebook fans.
According to her Twitter account as of April 14, 2015, Clinton had 3,351,547 Twitter followers. However, as the Daily Mail reports:
According to two popular online measuring tools, no more than 44 per cent of her Twitter fan base consists of real people who are active in using the social media platform.
And at least 15 per cent – more than 544,000 – are completely fake.
StatusPeople.com, the oldest publicly available Twitter-auditing tool, reports that 44 per cent of the former secretary of state’s followers are ‘good’; 15 per cent are ‘fake’; and 41 per cent are ‘inactive,’ meaning that they never tweet or reply to any tweets.
Even more telling was that when Clinton was in her position as Secretary of State, the Associated Press reported that the State Department was buying Facebook “likes.”
In 2013, the State Department, which has more than 400,000 likes and was recently most popular in Cairo, said it would stop buying Facebook fans after its inspector general criticized the agency for spending $630,000 to boost the numbers.
In one case, its fan tally rose from about 10,000 to more than 2.5 million.
But that isn’t all. When Hillary opened up her campaign in Iowa, there were actually more reporters who attended than voters. Talk about an embarrassment!
He Iowa kickoff event roused a whopping 22 people! National Journal reports:
Gone are the soaring speeches and the big rally crowds, swapped out for roundtable discussions and meet-and-greets with local activists.
But the dozens of reporters both in the room and chasing after her van outside were a reminder of just how difficult it will be for one of the most recognizable public figures in the world to hold events that truly feel intimate.
On Tuesday, for example, Clinton was seated at a table with just seven other people for the discussion, with an audience of another 15. But those Iowans were far outnumbered by the dozens of reporters who were bunched together behind a thin yellow rope at the back of the room.
Indeed, despite some limits on the number of press credentials handed out by Clinton’s Iowa team—each outlet had one person in the room, and national television and photography was pooled—it still was a big group. Bigger yet was the press crowd outside, where reporters who weren’t admitted to the event chased Clinton’s van when it first pulled up here, contributing to the feeling of a media circus surrounding the former secretary of State’s Iowa launch.
Clinton joked about the horde of reporters as the event opened, telling the seven roundtable participants: “Well, thank you for having me here—and a few of my friends.”
Let’s call this all what it really is: Contrived. Hillary’s campaign and support is just as contrived as Barack Obama’s was. They get the right camera angles to make things appear like there’s more support than there is (another Saul Alinsky tactic). They drum up fake followers giving the impression that more people support them than they do.
Mrs. Clinton is an evil woman and some say she is even more dangerous than Barack Obama. That may be. One thing is for sure, this woman cannot be allowed to become president, and the only way I see that happening is for there to be enormous voter fraud and even going that far will depend upon the Democrat National Committee selecting her as their candidate. Right now, even that prospect doesn’t look to good.
