CBS is making sure you are reminded in a positive way about Hillary Clinton, beginning this fall. In a love letter (or maybe a “Lewinsky”) to Hillary, CBS picked up the pilot, “Madam Secretary” to helm its fall roster of new shows.
“Madam Secretary” stars actress Tea Leoni as a glamorous, blonde, tough-as-nails, female Secretary of State. This Hollywood-manufactured female Secretary of State is much like Hillary Clinton (except in the looks, sensible shoes, and pantsuit departments). She is liberal, in-your-face, says her goal is to bring various “cultural values” of the world to America, and she values “diversity.” She is tolerant of foreign leaders with many wives . . . just like Hillary. And she rescues two stupid young Americans who were caught hiking in Syria and facing death . . . just like Hillary Clinton “rescued” three stupid Americans caught hiking in Iran and facing death. Oh, and she’s the heroine of the show. If you took Tea Leoni’s face and smushed it into a Cabbage Patch doll, it would resemble Mrs. Clinton.
Make no mistake. CBS chose this show to not-so-subliminally cheer Hillary Clinton on as she runs for President. CBS President and CEO Leslie Moonves is a big liberal Democrat and friend of the Clintons. If Hillary Clinton had been Secretary of Defense, that would have been the case on the show. And if Hillary colored her hair black, a raven-haired actress would have been cast on this show. This was his way of helping out and trying to make us forget the Benghazi debacle of Ms. “What Difference Does It Make?!”.
There’s never been a TV show before about a female Secretary of State. So why now? Because she’s running for Prez.
And timing is everything. So is propaganda in prime time.
And that’s exactly what “Madam Secretary” will be. (It should be noted that “Madam Secretary” is also the title of biotchlet Madeline Albright’s Gitmo-torture-quality memoir. And, oh, yeah, she worked for the Clintons.)
Exit Question: so, how many episodes do you give it until it’s canceled . . . or how long does Les Moonves prop it up to help Hillary?
