“Madam Secretary”: CBS’ Prime Time Love Letter to Hillary Clinton

By Debbie Schlussel

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?

No way this survives past 6 episodes. For sure, Moonves is an idiot, but he’s a greedy idiot.

    Oops! Now past it’s 3rd season. I actually see this TV character a lot more capable & committed than our real former Secretary of State. By comparison, Hillary seems to have been feckless, if not self-serving in so many ways – still is with the content of the release of her new memoir.

    Gayle on September 20, 2017 at 5:21 pm

I don’t know — politics might trump profit, and one of Hillary’s rich friends might make up the difference. Look how many PC shows go on and on, and how many PC movies are made, profit or no profit.

I frequently disagree with Rove, but I think he’s absolutely right about Hillary’s impaired mental capability. The “what difference does it make” quote is telling. It suggests diminishing mental prowess, which, during, a long, arduous campaign might prove so disastrous to her that even the press would not be able to prop her up.

I am glad to see you mention this. I heard about the show and my first thought was that it will be a Hillary ass kissing propaganda piece. I am glad to see it confirmed by you. I hope it fails. I remember a stupid show called “Commander in Chief”. It didn’t last very long. As I remember, they gave it a month or so break after a poor rating and it still failed the second time. It had a suspicious timing also.

Important news story and analysis, Debbie. Thanks.

skzion on June 5, 2014 at 2:49 am

I’ll have to watch an episode of this just for the hell of it. My first thought was it couldn’t help but be left-wing propaganda because that is basically at the core of what the state department does. I guess Tea Leoni can’t really play a bitch aka Hilary, ‘eh? Only a diehard feminist would look forward to seeing that every week.

Daniel Middleman on June 5, 2014 at 3:32 am

It’ll go the full season regardless of how far in the basement the ratings are. It doesn’t matter how attractive the actress is. The subject of Secretary of State is not compelling TV. Side note: since when is it SecState’s mission to bring world cultural values to America? Her job is supposed to be to represent the country’s interests with other countries. That’s why I can’t stand diplomats. They all drink the local Kool-Aid and go native.

Sean M on June 5, 2014 at 10:07 am

I always liked Leoni .. and then realized what a f**ked up Libtard she is. So, she is dead to me ..

Jack on June 5, 2014 at 10:37 am

I’d more say this is just another in a long line of pro-Hillary puff shows designed to grease the skids for a potential 2016 Presidential run for her. (The HBO series “Veep,” with Julia Louis-Dreyfus – another Libtard, surprise, surprise – as a Vice President of the U.S., also fits into the “Hillary a**-kissing propaganda piece” category. Especially when you consider Ms. Louis-Dreyfus once visiting the White House and being feted by Joe Biden. Same difference, in other words.)

At 50 seconds into the video she shows us exactly what Madam Secretary’s main job is: piling it on.
So who wants to watch someone being a bitch 24/7?
Even bitchy women can’t stand bitchy women!
…and what’s with the Clark Kent glasses?

theShadow on June 5, 2014 at 5:55 pm

    It’s been my experience that leftie women wear butt-ugly glasses because they think it makes them look more intelligent.

    MIGirl on June 6, 2014 at 7:10 pm

wow…this is about as subtle as a 500 lb hummingbird

SomeDame on June 6, 2014 at 3:09 pm

Hey boys and girls which one of you would like to guess the name of the person Les Moonves and SeeBS want to run for president. Talk about sucking up. I predict this stupid show won’t last a season.

Ken b on June 6, 2014 at 7:11 pm

I just puked in my mouth…….

BOHICA on June 7, 2014 at 12:47 am

This is just a greasing of the wheels for Hillary’s 2016 run. They are going to create a fictionalized legacy with superior and nuanced political skills. Confuse the people with fiction so they vote for Tia, eh Hillary. All the same, right. “What difference does it make?”

Benghazi, that’s just a story, so CBS has lots of stories to counter that … just watch this fall.

After all these people can’t tell the difference between real news and fictional news anyway.

John B on June 15, 2014 at 10:37 pm

Since the revisionist media conglomerate combination of mainstream liberal news and Hollywood fiction have successfully rewritten the Bill Clinton legacy to turn him into the Democrat’s version of Reagan, they are now free to work on the next project of getting Hillary elected. That waste of a show, Commander in Chief, didn’t do it, so now they’ll be more obvious and really make sure enough of the public thinks this new program is a “reality documentary drama” about Ms. Clinton. They only need enough votes to sway a close election, and the idiots who can’t see the difference between reality and Hollywood will be enough to do that. These will be the people you used to see on Leno’s Jaywalking bits twho cannot answer any question about US History or current events, but can tell you everything that has happened in any recent celebrity’s life or on any quasi-reality program.

Ricky M on June 23, 2014 at 10:36 am

The story lines are limitless,..a great addition to CBS. Smart casting and great writing. ….can’t wait!

Bestin the west on July 5, 2014 at 6:45 pm

Based on the ads for this show, it will be clear evidence that propaganda and demagoguery the only arrows in the liberals’ quiver.

J Galt on July 20, 2014 at 10:56 am

Judging by the brief promos; the character is a smarmy, condescending bully bitch. Glad they didn’t gloss over Hilary’s character.

Isabella Garcia on July 24, 2014 at 4:20 pm

The trailers were canceled in my house.I laughed until I puked,and then I realized this wasn’t a comedy.I guess tv producers aren’t as greedy as I thought they were as the Clintons true past would clean up at even the box office,ie; trashing around arkansas cheating their “friends” out of millions on bogus land deals,mobile whore houses(formerly referred to as state police cars,and hillary’s total distain for law enforcement figures and her use of a streamlined vocabulary containing mostly words restricted to a mere four letters.

jon province on August 14, 2014 at 6:21 pm

Unfortunate…..and I am personally appalled at the lack of responsibility of our current political crew, especially Hillary. To come up with a series to try and bolster her political run for presidency is offensive to those of us whom have worn the uniform and defended the country…or the whims of the current political elite. Make no mistake…they are out for themselves as has been clearly demonstrated by the Clintons. The deaths of honorable American warriors and leadership should not be glossed over in order to insert a less than qualified candidate into what should be the most prestigious position in US politics. The Clintons have taken the position and reduced it to laughingstock worldwide. We as a nation need to return the United States to the position of power that we once held and keep the nation there. The Clintons can only further damage us as a nation.

Eric on September 21, 2014 at 11:50 am

Can CBS BE anymore obvious. Free advertising for Hillary. Makes me sick. I will not watch this and other CBS programs!!!!

Gwen on September 21, 2014 at 7:33 pm

I definitely will not be watching this liberally influenced show.

Humor Me on September 21, 2014 at 7:37 pm

the country is sick of the lying, power hungry clintons

bob on October 12, 2014 at 8:10 pm

I see, this is an alternative history where progressive values are not a complete disaster, Hillary is not a complete failure and people actually watch CBS.

Hilarious Comments. The show will probably be cancelled the next time Hillary “Falls Down” and they have to give their lead actress another concussion to match.

Haha on November 28, 2014 at 4:17 pm

Hillary fits the profile of a narcissistic sociopath. She shows fake compassion only when the curtain is up and someone is watching. She is truly a cold, empty, vicious woman who doesn’t care about anyone but herself.
She doesn’t care people died under her watch in Benghazi. She doesn’t care military people are overseas fighting for our country while she ONCE again burdens us with her DRAMA and scandal. She doesn’t care that her husband took an advantage of vulnerable younger women under his watch. She doesn’t care about the American people. She only cares about living off of your tax dollars and having power and feeding her endless ego. She’s a madwoman. Should be put on a psychiatric hold. Here’s the real Hillary: A woman who showed zero empathy for a 12 year rape victim: Read it and NEVER EVER forget who this woman really is. She is NOT for women’s rights. She is not a child advocate. She is pro lawlessness. She didn’t just “defend” the child rapist, she MOCKED the victim. Big difference. http://dailycaller.com/2014/07/08/hillary-clinton-refuses-to-apologize-for-laughing-about-12-year-old-rape-victim-she-maligned-in-court/
Hillary Clinton (Rodham at the time) mocked 12 year old rape victim.
Source: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/06/20/exclusive-hillary-clinton-took-me-through-hell-rape-victim-says.html

Daily Beast has talked to a woman who was raped, once by her attackers, and again by Hillary Clinton’s twisted manipulation of the legal system on behalf of her attacker.

In her interview with The Daily Beast, she recounted the details of her attack in 1975 at age 12 and the consequences it had for both her childhood and adult life. A virgin before the assault, she spent five days afterwards in a coma, months recovering from the beating that accompanied the rape, and over 10 years in therapy. The doctors told her she would probably never be able to have children.

Now 52, she has never married or had children.

“I have been informed that the complainant is emotionally unstable with a tendency to seek out older men and engage in fantasizing,” Clinton, then named Hillary D. Rodham, wrote in the affidavit.

I doubt we’ll see that historical side on Madam Secretary……

Well, we know the tales of the Clintons friends like Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Epstein and their alleged sexual abuse allegations, but now allegations have surfaced against Clinton pal Les Mooves, CBS’ chairman and CEO.
