Oligarchs prefer, but don’t need, president with a pulse: Analyst

An American writer and political analyst says if Hillary Clinton gets elected president of the United States, she will be a sock puppet of the global ruling elite.

Daniel Patrick Welch told Press TV on Tuesday that the Democratic presidential nominee does not need to be a very healthy person in order to do the bidding of her handlers. “All they need is a pulse, and a finger to push the button when they tell you to.”

On Monday, Bill Clinton dismissed mounting health rumors about his wife, saying Hillary is “doing fine” despite being diagnosed with pneumonia.

The 68-year-old former First Lady was forced to abruptly leave a 9/11 memorial in New York on Sunday due to a medical episode, stirring speculations about her well-being.

The candidate’s physician, Dr. Lisa Bardack, released a statement via the campaign and said she had pneumonia. Her campaign, however, blamed the incident on her simply feeling “overheated.”

Welch said that “this whole thing about Hillary’s health, it’s just another red herring.”

“First of all it’s an opportunity for her handlers to spout even more lies, because you never get the truth out of these people. You know, she’s dehydrated, she’s over heated, she has pneumonia… Nobody knows and you can’t trust what they tell you,” he said.

“The problem is — first of all, you don’t need to be very healthy to do this job; you’re just a sock puppet,” the analyst explained.

“All they need is a pulse, and a finger to push the button when they tell you to — which [they] is finance capital and the people who are the overlords of the US and the global ruling class. But it does give them an opportunity to then spout a new round of lies, that this is what shows that she’s overworked because she’s is working like a demon, she works so hard, fighting for us – all this crap,” he stated.

“It’s like a ballet of choreographed lunacy where everything only exists inside an echo chamber, and it’s all about branding, and marketing, and convincing people that they are living in a real democracy,” Welch noted. “And so every new scandal, and scheme, and shadow can be used to further the larger picture.”

While admittedly speaking a bit tongue in cheek, the analyst went on to say that Clinton is a darling of the elites because of her unwavering commitment to American exceptionalism, the supremacist belief that fuels Americans’ acceptance of their government’s endless wars.

“The fact is that whoever sits on that seat, and Hillary Clinton will likely be the one, healthy or not, living or not, they will just prop her up and keep her finger on the button, is the ultimate proponent of supremacist ideology in the world,” he stated.

“Americans are taught, and lied to and nurtured to believe that they and in particular white people are the best people in the world. They’re exceptional, there’s something very different about us. And if you don’t believe this you can watch Hillary Clinton’s speech to the American Legion just a couple of weeks ago,” he continued.
