Oops, She Did It Again!

Fresh off Comrade Clinton’s Comedy Club Cackle Caper, Hillary stuck her foot in her mouth again. And, so far, the MSM is not even reporting on this gaffe.

Hillary Clinton leaves flowers for Our Lady of Guadalupe, asks ‘Who painted it?’

During her recent visit to Mexico, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made an unexpected stop at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe and left a bouquet of white flowers “on behalf of the American people,” after asking who painted the famous image.

The image of Our Lady of Guadalupe was miraculously imprinted by Mary on the tilma, or cloak, of St. Juan Diego in 1531. The image has numerous unexplainable phenomena, such as the appearance on Mary’s eyes of those present in the room when the tilma was opened and the image’s lack of decay.

Mrs. Clinton was received on Thursday at 8:15 a.m. by the rector of the Basilica, Msgr. Diego Monroy.

Msgr. Monroy took Mrs. Clinton to the famous image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, which had been previously lowered from its usual altar for the occasion.

After observing it for a while, Mrs. Clinton asked “who painted it?” to which Msgr. Monroy responded “God!”

Now, you may not believe in the miraculous origins of Our Lady of Guadalupe, but that’s not the point. Catholics believe in the divine origin of the image, especially the Catholic clergy curators of the Basilica of Guadalupe. Hillary Clinton was visiting perhaps Mexico’s most Holy Catholic shrine, to view perhaps Mexico’s most Holy religious relic. To ask “Who painted it?” was perhaps the ultimate in dumb and insensitive question. Again, if she’s that ignorant about the history of the places she visits on behalf of the United States, doesn’t the State Department have briefers that prepare her for these appearances in terms of background and protocol?
