For John, BLUF: A special kind of tone deaf. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Buried down in the article is this paragraph, with part of it underlined by your Blogger:
She hopes to reassure progressives with her executive actions, which would also include new protections for undocumented immigrant parents, as well as her personnel appointments. Having women make up half of her cabinet would be historic (in recent years, a quarter to a third of cabinet positions have been held by women), and Democrats close to Mrs. Clinton say she may decide to retain Ms. Lynch, the nation’s first black woman to be attorney general, who took office in April 2015.Now that is tone deaf.
It isn't like it was The Onion or The Daily Caller. This is The Old Gray Lady, herself.
I am thinking The Honorable Hillary Clinton thinks of herself as "bullet proof".
UPDATE: Here is how Law Professor Ann Althouse plays it.
Hat tip to the Drudge Report.
