Orlando terrorist’s father sits behind Hillary Clinton at campaign rally

August 9, 2016

 Hillary Clinton held a campaign rally in Kissimmee Florida and she opened by paying tribute to the families who lost loved ones in the Orlando gay nightclub shooting: “I know how many people, families, loved ones, and friends are still grieving, and we will be with you as you rebuild your lives.”

  However this quickly became an awkward situation because it turns out the father of the terrorist shooter was not only in attendance but was sitting almost directly behind the former Secretary of State at the campaign rally. Here is more:

Hillary Clinton spoke to a crowd in Kissimmee, just south of Orlando.  She was supposed to be talking jobs, but started the speech off paying tribute to those affected by the Pulse Nightclub shooting.

“I know how many people, families, loved ones, and friends are still grieving, and we will be with you as you rebuild your lives.”

WPTV happened to notice the man, who has a mustache and was wearing a red hat, behind Clinton. It was Seddique Mateen, the father of Orlando mass shooter Omar Mateen.

  The Clinton campaign is claiming that they did not invite him and that they had no idea he was there and I have to believe she did not because even someone as brazen as Hillary Clinton could not be so arrogant as to think she could get away with the optics of something as stupid as this. Right?

  But somebody had to know because there is an advance team that is supposed to screen the people who will appear with a major candidate. Democratic operative and Hillary Clinton supporter Paul Begala was bewildered by this, stating that somebody needed to be fired over this and that the former Secretary of State needs to disavow the endorsement Seddique Mateen gave to Hillary Clinton in a subsequent interview. Here is more:

On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” CNN Political Commentator and Adviser to a pro-Hillary Super PAC Paul Begala stated that the Clinton campaign should disavow the support it received from Seddique Mateen, the father of the perpetrator of the Pulse nightclub terrorist attack, who showed up to a Clinton rally, and “fire the advance person.”

Begala said that if he could advise them, he would tell the Clinton campaign to “disavow him. She doesn’t want his support, and her campaign doesn’t want his support. It may take a while to get their act together. Candidate’s here. The vice presidential candidate’s here. The campaign chairman’s here. I’ve run campaigns. At this stage, they’re a very big battleship, but they need to go to battle stations here. They need to disavow this guy, and, I guess I can say this because I can’t coordinate with the campaign, they need to fire the advance person. Now, thousands of people came to that rally, you can’t screen every one of them to find out if they posted something crazy or their son is a terrorist, I get that, but he was in the shot. He was behind the candidate.”

  This puts Hillary Clinton in a tight spot because if she disavowes  Seddique Mateen she could be portrayed as an Islamophobe by the mainstream media, but then again she is not a Republican so she will get a pass on this if this is the path she takes…

    But she has sense enough to keep her mouth shut.

    Again the voter is played for idiots. First, Hillary opened her rally by talking about the Pulse Night Club shooting. This shooter’s father is sitting directly behind her, but it was a coincidence. A reasonable person would think the audience nearest Hillary is supposed to be vetted. You would not want a deranged Trump supporter to be that close to her wearing a Make America Great Hat would you? The SS and FBI did not know he was at the rally or that close to Hillary? Really? … I guess Trump is to blame for this.

    There more evidence that this was another staged pyscho-op. If anyone was killed it was by the fbi or contractors. BUT of course Hilly will use one of their fabricated events to further her Agenda!

    Of course they knew he was sitting there…I think it was done for the WOW factor and to see if they could get away with it. Another factor would be to see IF the media covered for her, which they always do. As usual, they put something out there, then they say “oh, my bad” and that is the end of it….reverse the tables and see IF the Republicans would get away with doing the same thing! I think not.

      There is now way that nobody knew this guy was there, it is almost as if they were baiting Trump to say something about it. Of course Republicans could never get away with it, imagine if Dillon Roof’s father appeared at a Trump rally!

        Now, Steve, are you forgetting that THAT would be unfair to pull the same crap on them? I mean, really, we are “better than that”, right? Isn’t that what Obama says when the Republicans do something he doesn’t like? There is that little smack on the hand to let us know, we have gotten out of control.
        I don’t know about you, but I am tired of rules for them and rules for us!

        I am very tired of it! The sad part is that I have just come to expect it so it no longer gets mire ire up the way is used to and I suppose that is exactly what the left is counting on.
