As Merriam-Webster and every high school kid whose ever boned up for the SAT verbal knows, Sycophant is defined as a person who praises powerful people in order to get their approval or as a person best described as a servile self-seeking flatterer.
Possibly the words Works for Hillary should be added to this particular noun normally reserved for toadies, parasites and suck-ups.
As reported by the New York Post on Jan. 2, 2016, the recent batch of slowly released emails from Clinton’s recent slash-and-burn tour of duty as the Head Den Mother of Barry’s Department of State reveal that Mdm. Clinton’s leeches (staff) have their noses so far up Hill-Dog’s zip code-worthy arse, they’re on a first name basis with her colon polyps.
Case in point:
“When a photo of Clinton on her Blackberry started lighting up the Internet in April 2012, an aide forwarded it to Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills under the subject line, ‘Photo gone viral!’
Mills passed it along to Clinton, who wanted to know why it was so popular. ‘You look cute,’ responded Mills.”
Not to be outdone, Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs Judith McHale wrote Clinton in May 2012 that she had seen an article mentioning how good Clinton’s latest hair-do looked.
“Fun seeing the great press you are getting on all things sartorial and hair related! Who would have thunk it in this stage of our lives,” McHale said.
And when a magazine later featured Clinton on the cover, press aide Philippe Reines described the photo as “spectacular.”
