If you have ever been to a magic show or stunt show, quite often they will ask for a volunteer. The volunteer dawns the stage and the performer amazes us all as the feat of daring-do plays out.
Shows demonstrating how magic tricks are done have aired on television many times, so it shouldn’t be a surprise to most of you that in many cases, these so called volunteers are plants. They are professionals, or at least practiced and paid individuals, hired to perform their part of the act. The plant gets presented as a volunteer to draw in the audience, but if one were to attend two acts of the same show, it would ruin the effect because that same volunteer will show up at both performances as well. Amazingly, that same person will be selected from a crowd of thousands because he or she did such a great job the first time. Wink, wink.
Obama wants to paint himself in a positive light, and we believe he attempted the following slight of hand. In what looks to be a foolish staged stunt, Henrietta Hughes, a woman from Florida that supposedly lives in her pickup truck with her son, was given an audience with Obama to beg for housing. Here is why we think she was a plant and this was all staged nonsense.
1. She is an elderly black woman. There are many more homeless whites that would love a home. Why would Obama choose her to line up for this event? Perhaps reverse racism? Who knows, but it appears that almost every major video we find like this involves an elderly black woman and Obama. There were a couple of similar incidents during the Presidential campaign, one that occurred on 60 minutes.
2. Henrietta speaks much more clearly and dresses much better than any of the homeless we see in Boston. Maybe Obama put lipstick on the … before he dressed it up and put it in front of the camera?
3. The entire video looks like a complete setup. The woman was selected out of thousands to whine to Obama about her need for a home so another politician could immediately stand up and offer her one?
There are approximately 80000 homeless in the United States. That is likely a very low estimate. Out of a huge audience, Obama chose a lovable character that just happened to look as far from a homeless person as possible and that looks more like someone with whom his grandmother attends church? Please.
All that aside, let’s assume Obama isn’t as disingenuous as we believe he is. Say he did actually go to the effort to find an actual homeless woman, dressed her up and told her to beg. It was still staged. Watching the video several times makes it hard to believe otherwise.
Now, how did it play out? The liberal media has Obama coming to the rescue of the woman by offering her a home. That is if you read the headlines. The headline on the HuffingtonPOst.com was “Henrietta Hughes Given Home After Telling Obama She Was Homeless”. The article only got two Diggs as one reader nearly immediately pointed out that it was a lie.
The implication of the headline and the misleading if not downright false article is Henrietta was gifted a house. In actuality, Henrietta was offered free rent until she could get back on her feet in a staged event to make Obama look like a demigod. Henrietta played her role well enough to get a few months of free rent.
“Basically, I offered Ms. Hughes and her son the opportunity to stay in my home rent free, for as long as they need to,” said Chene Thompson, wife of State Representative Nick Thompson. “I’m not a millionaire, I’m not rich, but this is what I can do for someone if they need it.”
To Clene Thompson we say…
There are tens of thousands of homeless that need assistance. Your reason for providing help to this specific woman is that you wanted the publicity and because of her appearance in the Presidential magic show with Obama. Your stunt is obvious and your sorry act is as transparent as clean air.
The Obama performance will likely get nominated for a Tony, and the HuffingtonPost has once again published an amazingly transparent lie for the liberals to fall victim to like adoring children. It will be interesting what trick our magician Obama will pull out of his hat next, and what the next complete lie out of the Huff will be.
