'Monica, Monica' Chants Taunt Clinton in Egypt

Now this is what I call blowback.

AFP reports:
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was taunted by chants of "Monica, Monica" by tomato-throwing demonstrators as she visited the Egyptian port city of Alexandria on Sunday.
An embarrassed Egyptian security official said they were chanting "Monica, Monica" and "Irhal, Clinton" (Get out, Clinton.) 
Tomatoes, shoes and a water bottle were thrown at part of Clinton's motorcade as it pulled up, protected by riot police, although a US official said Clinton's own vehicle was not hit. 
The protest appears to have been the result of suspicions that Washington had helped the Muslim Brotherhood win elections in Egypt in the wake of last year's ouster of president Hosni Mubarak after 18 days of massive street protests.

  1. LMAO at your headline!!

  2. Hillary Clinton 2009: "I really consider President and Mrs. Mubarak to be friends of my family. So I hope to see him often here in Egypt and in the United States."

    That would be the President Mubarak who was overthrown by his own people, put on trial and sentenced to life in prison. Funny thing, victims of oppression don't seem to have much affection for their dictators enablers.

  3. Strange, NBC never mentioned the chanting......

  4. Ha ha. Love it. Can't wait until Americans finally treat these criminals the same way here in the U.S.
