You will be hard pressed to find a bigger narcissist than twice-failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. She’s the center of her very own universe, which, fortunately for the rest of human civilization, only exists inside her own warped, twisted mind. A great case in point that supports this claim is her recent comments which attempted to make the “Barbie” film getting snubbed at the Oscars somehow all about her. How in the world could something like this, which honestly has zero connection to Clinton at all, be used as a platform for pushing herself into the cultural conversation of the moment?
Guess she’ll do anything to remain relevant in the public eye, right?
“Greta & Margot, While it can sting to win the box office but not take home the gold, your millions of fans love you. You’re both so much more than Kenough. #HillaryBarbie,” the former secretary of state said in a post on X.
Greta & Margot,
While it can sting to win the box office but not take home the gold, your millions of fans love you.
You’re both so much more than Kenough.#HillaryBarbie

It’s almost impossible not to roll your eyes when Hillary Clinton speaks. Everything that comes out of her mouth — or in this case her fingertips — just drips with arrogance and an inflated sense of self-importance. Can you imagine how insufferable she must be for those who have to work for her? I don’t even think that’s a job Mike Rowe could handle, and that guy literally built his career on doing “dirty jobs” nobody else wants to do.
It didn’t take long for folks on X to flood the post with criticism for Clinton’s comparison, reminding her over and over again about her failure to campaign in Wisconsin ahead of the 2016 presidential election, which she lost to Donald Trump in glorious fashion.

“Margot really should’ve visited Wisconsin,” one popular reply says.
“How dare those other women get nominated. This is just more proof of sexism in the entertainment industry,” another says.
“Barbie was a bad movie. Just because it made a lot of money doesn’t make it good or a winner. Similarly, just because Hillary Clinton got a lot of votes doesn’t make her good or President of the United States,” another comment said. “Oppenheimer was a much better film. And Trump a better candidate.”
“Oppenheimer” had the most Oscar nominationsthis year with 13 total, including Best Picture and Best Director. The second most-nominated film was “Poor Things” with 11. “Barbie” received eight, including the coveted Best Picture, but fans were annoyed that the film’s lead actress, Robbie, didn’t get put in the running for Best Actress and that Gerwig wasn’t a contender for Best Director.
The male lead for “Barbie,” Ryan Gosling, was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor award. Another member of the cast, America Ferrara, received a Best Supporting Actress nomination. I won’t lie, it does seem weird that Gosling got nominated but neither Robbie or Gerwig, the main driving forces behind the project, did. I don’t know that it has anything to do with sexism, in fact, I highly doubt it given how super liberal Hollywood has become and their new obsession with diversity hires and what have you.
The Oscars will be aired live on Sunday, March 10, and will once again be hosted by the most unfunny late night host on television, Jimmy Kimmel.
