The Most Ridiculous Facebook Comments about Cal’s Picture with Hillary Clinton

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 11.55.53 AM

If you haven’t seen the picture of John Calipari with Hillary Clinton at the Starkey Hearing Gala over the weekend, well, you’re probably the only one. Cal posted the picture of himself with the former First Lady and Secretary of State with the caption “Got to meet Hillary Clinton. She looked great! Really exciting stuff!”, and immediately, it went viral. So far, the picture has almost 8,000 likes on Facebook, 2,000 likes on Instagram, and thousands of Facebook comments.

It probably won’t surprise you that most of those Facebook comments (like 99.99%) don’t favor Hillary that much, and in turn, Cal got a lot of heat for posting the picture himself. I spent my morning mucking through all of the comments to bring you this most ridiculous. Get ready.

Let’s start with the ones that were actually nice…

A lot of people were happy Hillary was wearing a blue dress:

Some people were shocked that she was actually wearing a dress:

This person thinks Hillary looks really hot:

This person was really upset that Cal commented on Hillary’s looks in general:

These people lost respect for Cal for posting the picture:

Of course, there was a random Monica Lewinsky fan in the house:

Every time you click reply ksr gets a hit. I refuse to fall for this anymore. It worked so well the first time. So they do it again. I say enough is enough.

      Love her? She was part of the circle of liars about Bengahzi where Americans were killed. She helped a rapist go free when she was a lawyer. Hillary is a terrible person.

      The economic prosperity had more to do with the Republican controlled House and Senate that balanced the budget and massively reduced the deficit. Not to mention oil prices were at its lowest in years and there was a technology boom going on. Clinton is a progressive like the moron currently in office. We could have easily had a situation like we’re in now with nationalized health care and a bad economy. Luckily, the Dems lost and Republicans gained control of the House and Senate killing any chance of Clinton doing what Obama was able to do with Dem controlled House and Senate. See what happens when you give one party complete control?

    Yeah, not a fan of the pics with politicians, especially ones that are tied to the current administration or are hard core, liberal, progressives that are ruining this country. I understand if Cal thinks it’s cool to meet a high profile person but it’s best for him to keep it to himself when it comes to someone like Clinton who is into some very shady things and helped a rapist stay out of jail in her lawyer days. But i’m not going to be a nut-job and hate the guy for it.

    Aida’s comment about it not being appropriate to comment on Hillary’s looks is proof that feminism and our PC culture has run amok. I doubt most women would agree that they don’t want their looks commented about if it is in a positive fashion.



    • LadyCat
      3:45 pm July 21, 2014 Permalink

      As a successful woman, I would appreciate “She was so smart and witty” over “she looked great.” I’m not tore up about the comment, but you shouldn’t dismiss Aida’s comment so easily. We are just tired of people only commenting on looks, as if that is our primary purpose, to look pretty. I’ve never seen a post saying “Met Obama last night. He looked great.”



    • inside info
      4:42 pm July 21, 2014 Permalink

      LadyCat, I appreciate your thought out response and not a knee-jerk yelling in all caps that you often see here. But I have seen plenty of comments about how Obama looks, probably more of them negative than positive. I just don’t think people really care about comments on men’s looks. If Hillary had made a smart or witty comment I am sure Cal would’ve commented about that. But in the context of the picture provided, she was wearing (unusual for her) a dress and looked better than she normally does. I think if the pic was of Cal standing next to Obama in a tux, he would’ve said something similar.

    Wouldn’t it be great if Hilary attended a basketball charity event with Sean Miller and all the other young, up-coming coaches and they took a group picture. Then a certain group of idiotic UK fans would have to hope we hire an obscure coach who never has his picture taken with a politician.

    It boils my blood to see how petty most people have become. She is due as much respect if not more than the administration before her that lied about WMD’s and cost the lives of thousands of America’s finest as well as innocent men, women and children.
    If the money had been approved to secure the embassies in foreign countries, which was denied by the conservatives, there would be no talk of lives lost on her watch. It was not her fault, you can thank mitchie mouse mcCONnell and his band of merry men.
    Get your facts straight. The Clinton Administration left more money in the country’s treasury than any other president. It did not even take Geo III 4 years to deplete it. My grandchildren and great-grandchildren as well as your will still be paying or the war based on lies. Families for generations will be paying for it through the loss of a loved one.
    It is a government of the people, for the people and by the people. It is not a government of the few, by the few for the few. When a group of politicians are voted into office you should support them, not try to tear them down.

      Excellent post. I actually blame Drudge, Hannity, and especially Limbaugh for the decline in civility. I have a friend who believes EVERYTHING Limbaugh says, and I mean that literally. Numerous times i’ve pointed how he can quickly see the Limbaugh is full of shit but he says i’m simply enamored with the liberal media. I pointed him to non-political fact websites and that did not help. He honestly tells me he wonders if BO is a legitimate citizen and get this, BO is really dumb and is fed the answers thru an earpiece. I asked him how Obama is able to quickly answer questions at press conferences and he says that he simply repeats what he is told in an ear piece. This friend is college educated too … lmao. We don’t discuss politics anymore but i cut him off when he loses control.

      I know there are liberals that are idiots but not nearly the number as the right has. At our company picnic he introduced me to about 5 Tea Party folks and i listened in to their complaining for as long as i could. I’m not judgemental but these were 5 of the dumbest people i’ve ever listened to.

      Hildo, people in large masses do not think up the same batshit tinfoil stuff. A large chunk of Repubs think Obama is not a U.S. citizen, that he is a Socialist, that he has fake grades, that the IRS ONLY targets right-wing groups, that Benghazi is a massive conspiracy, etc. They think that because they are fed that over and over and over on Fox and their right wing radio hosts. Cmon, you know it is true.

      As far as Benghazi, how the eff do you know the video did not contribute to the attack? You have no real clue, only what your media choices tell you. Did you notice the ringleader was just captured by the U.S.? He wanted to kill as many folks as possible and is the worst kind of terrorist. Now he’ll get his due, probably not enough. One of the first authored reports of the whole incident came out and blamed a whole set of factors on the murders, but mainly on the perpetrators. This is not good enough for the right wing and their zealots.

      I wish you guys were as focused on minute details prior to the Iraq invasion.

All the people blasting Mrs T for this post and Cal for taking the picture are morons as well. Mrs T posting this is NOT a political endorsement of anyone.

    Pitino = Democrat/National Champion
    Tubby = Democrat/National Champion
    Gillispie = Republican/Player-Abusing Thug/Alcoholic
    Calipari = Democrat/National Champion

    Given that this is a Kentucky basketball website, we should ban any positive mention of Republicanism or Republicans, as they have been absolutely destructive to the UK Basketball program. This fall, many Republicans will vote for a Cardinal fan who doesn’t know the difference between Duke and Kentucky.

    Republicans, I know that logic isn’t your strong suit, but can you at least admit that Democrats are better at running the Kentucky Wildcats?

    Once you admit that, then you can go back to your favorite hobbies: launching unprovoked wars and banning people from having consensual sex.

    This reminds me of back when Florida won the title and Joakim Noah refused to visit the White House and visit President Bush. I remember thinking, “That’s just petty. I hate him as much as the next guy but he’s still the President of my country and I’d still be honored”.

    Except in that case he just stated his opinion instead of being an a-hole half-wit about it. Which is really an accomplishment for Joakim Noah.

    The comments show what is wrong with this country in general. We can no longer have spirited debates on the issues, instead we denigrate the other side. Both Conservatives and Liberals and all those in between do the same thing: spew hate. Coach Cal took a picture with one of the more famous people on the planet. He would have reacted the same way if it had been George W. Bush. Cal loves people and lives in the moment. It’s a shame more Kentucky fans can’t do the same thing.

    Stop taking pride in calling yourself ‘conservatives.’ It’s a cheap, pre-cooked identity, mostly for country dummies. Take pride in actual achievements.

    Nowadays, seems the more you’re on welfare the more you profess hate for the government. The welfare class is now the Republican base. Now ain’t that somethin’?

      So I guess the previous administration did a much better job with losing 60 persons in attacks on embassies during the Bush regime. Not to mention the worst attack on the American homeland since Pearl Harbor after they had specifically been warned.

      Here’s some quotes about the WMDs:

      “In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program.” “. . . If left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons.” — Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

      “One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line.”
      –President Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

      “Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.” -Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

      “We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country.” — Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

    Here is what is sad about the picture- this reaction would never have occurred in 1988. The world has changed. The media (right and left) have helped to divide us as Americans. There was a time when people voted differently and thought differently about politics, but could still take a picture with a member of the opposing party without all of BBN having a meltdown. Its also why nothing gets done in Washington D.C.- this vitriol- on full display here- keeps anyone from even considering compromising on important issues at stake in this country.

    People, please, its just a F&%*king picture.

    Once everybody understands that every single politician is the exact same, the comments section will be a lot easier to read. All they want is votes. They will sell their soul to gain/keep their office. It doesn’t matter what letter is next to their name, they’ll support anything, deny anything, or stray away from their campaign “promises” to keep their offices. I don’t care if Cal poses with Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Whigs (if they even still exist), Libertarians, etc., as long as he recruits at a high level, does his best coaching in March/April, and keeps us out of probation, I’ll be happy. Feel free to grill me, but all those are my opinions.

    I always thought Cal as an A+ marketer till one year ago. But his grade has been gradually coming down. We all know that he is a die-hard Democrat. I don’t care what he does as an individual, John Vincent Calipari, attending fund raising parties, charity dinners, whatever he pleases to attend. He can take many pictures with all those politicians. Just enjoy with your family and friends. Once you put those pictures on public eyes, you are no longer an individual, John Vincent Calipari. You are perceived as Coach Cal at University of Kentucky, a public figure. Past year, he posted pictures with Obama, Bill Clinton and now Hillary. He took the boys to Bush library when they were in Texas, but there was no picture with Bush. Maybe he was not there at that time. Just STAY AWAY FROM ANYTHING TO DO WITH POLITICS to put on public eyes. That is not what a good marketer does. His grade is now B+.

Cal should not have to temper his views or his excitement for interacting with Pols – whether they are dems or repubs. Far too many absolute idiots in this fan base. At some point, cal will leave. If it is sooner than later, those who bitch now should forever shut their mouths when the next coach struggles to fill Cal’s enormous shoes.

    Seriously, some simply need to be muzzled. Same idiots, I bet, who think it’s ok to blast the players and then bitch about their process for deciding whether to enter nba draft.
