A niece of Hillary Clinton is voting for Donald Trump because she thinks her aunt just wants “to be the first woman president.”
The Daily Mail reported that the estranged relative is Macy Smit, 25, who works at a hair salon in Tampa, Fla. Her father is former President Bill Clinton’s half-brother, Roger.
In an interview with Radar Online published Wednesday, 25-year-old Macy Smit, daughter of Bill Clinton’s half-brother Roger, said that she finds her aunt “selfish” and declared that she is proudly on the Trump train.
“I have been a Democrat my entire life, but Trump is what we need right now — somebody who is going to stand up for us. I think at this point Hillary just wants it for the history books — to be the first woman president for selfish reasons,” she continued.
Smit, a hairstylist in Tampa, Florida, said that she’s never met that side of her family, something she attributes to the snobbery of Hillary and Bill.
“Something tells me the Clinton side looks at me and my mother as not good enough, but we’re hard-working,” Smit said.
While Hillary Clinton gives private speeches for tens of thousands of dollars, Macy works shifts up to 12 hours a day at the hair salon. Her husband, Derek Smit, is a meteorologist deployed to Kuwait with the U.S. Air Force. His uncle-in-law, you may recall, dodged the draft for the Vietnam War.
Martha Spivey, Smit’s mother, said that Roger Clinton was a deadbeat dad who abandoned the family after he got her pregnant.
“The Clintons are all talk!” Spivey, 50, said. “Hillary says she’s all about family, but she’s got a niece she’s never met and never acknowledged. The Clintons have never helped us out.”
If it cheers you up, Ms. Spivey, you and your daughter aren’t the only hardworking Americans Hillary’s ignored — or worse — for not having enough money for her tastes. In fact, she’s done it to so many that she’s pretty much driven the blue-collar middle class into the arms of rival Donald Trump and the Republican Party.
Of course, I don’t know the Clinton family dynamic (other than the fact that Bill usually tends to seek, ahem, gratification outside of its strictures). However, ask yourself this: Does this tale sound unusual or new to you?
Hillary’s alienated all sorts of people over the years. Spivey and Smit are just two of the tens of millions who will be voting against her next Tuesday because of this.
Good luck, Hillary. When even your niece isn’t going to vote for you, you’re going to need it.
