Dear Big-Time Hillary Clinton Donors: The Wedding is Not About YOU
Sheesh. Some people are so entitled!:
U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton explained to the many friends that she and her husband, former U.S. President Bill Clinton, have made over many years of public service that while she loves them all, their daughter Chelsea’s wedding is her own, and not theirs.
The implication is that, as Clinton has emphasized, the event will be a private affair for approximately 400 guests that are in one way or another directly related to the bride or the groom, Marc Mezvinsky – and not to the election campaign drives of the bride’s parents.
However, Clinton’s announcement presumably did not reach some of her colleagues who had hoped in vain to receive an invitation to the wedding. A week before the wedding ceremony on July 31 in Rhinebeck, New York – according to the most recent rumors in the U.S. – it has become clear that the invitations will not arrive, and some of the uninvited have criticized the decision anonymously, as reported in the New York Times.
“I’m good enough for them when they want to borrow a plane, but not good enough for them to invite to their daughter’s wedding?” complained one Clinton insider that would lend the Clintons his private jet from time to time…
Yes, anonymous private-plane lender, that’s right, you’re not invited. Get over it. What does your private plane have to do with Chelsea Clinton and her future husband, Marc Mesvinsky? And unless the Clintons have a lot of people who “lend” them private planes, I have a feeling they are going to know who YOU are, but perhaps that’s the point of your speaking to the media? This money bag should be ashamed because he has essentially admitted that he lends the plane to the Clintons not because he is a generous person…God no!…but rather because he wants something in return. Lovely.
How many times has Hillary Clinton said the wedding is not about she and Bill but rather about her daughter and her fiance and NOT about political supporters and hangers-on (ok, she didn’t say that last bit about hangers-on, I did)? The wedding will have approximately 400 guests according to media reports. I personally don’t know 400 people so that seems huge to me. But President Clinton and Secretary Clinton probably know thousands and thousands of people- so, what, they are supposed to invite everyone? That’s ridiculous.
The Washington Post also has an article about how, essentially, it’s not really the media’s business what, where, when and how Chelsea Clinton is getting married and I couldn’t agree more.
