State Dept. Says Clintons Are Not Partying in Dominican Republic as Was Reported

(Updated Below)
She’s having a rough time.

Hillary Clinton was too sick to speak with Congress this month about the Benghazi massacre. But, her illness didn’t keep her from celebrating New Year’s Eve at the Punta Cana resort in the Dominican Republic.
Dominican Today reported:

Ex-president Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary Clinton are enjoying their year-end vacation in Punta Cana, in the eastern coast of the Dominican Republic.

According to press reports, the Clintons will celebrate New Year’s at the Puntacana Resort & Club and could also attend a fashion show scheduled for December 29, which will be held in honor of famous Dominican designer Oscar de la Renta.

Also expected to attend are American journalist Barbara Walters, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, Spanish actress Mar Flores and her husband Javier Merino, among other international jetsetters.

UPDATE: The State Department wrote to say the story at Dominican Today is not true.

Here are the facts: The Clintons are not in the Dominican Republic. The Clintons are not going to the Dominican Republic. I realize that you are linking to and possibly relying on a posting, and rest assured we have contacted them as well to point out their deceitful reporting. I’m hoping that you have now been apprised of the facts, and that what you are presenting to your readers is entirely inaccurate and based on nothing even remotely true, we sincerely hope you will do the right thing and take all necessary steps to correct this falsehood. We likely disagree on just about everything, but surely we can agree that posting a lie is far different than posting an opinion.

The State Department could use some work on their people skills.

    come on people, the State Dept. said “it is not so, the Clintons are not in or going to the Dominican Republic “- now, who does not take their word as gospel ? Would / could they possibly be another part of government that lies to its citizens ? Nah, how could I even think such a thing. It is rather difficult lately to figure out, from the Head Man on down the line who tells the biggest lies.

    “…but surely we can agree that posting a lie is far different than posting an opinion.”

    You mean like blaming a video for the deaths of four Americans?

    I am so sick of Bubba and Hilliary, I can’t understand how they get away with so many questionable actions, and still remain in good standing with their party and the media. Most people would be ashamed to show their faces after being exposed, not the Clintons, who are in sync with all the lying politicians in Washington DC. Ethics, is a forgotten word, but maybe they never had any to begin with! Talk about a snake pit, and you have the right name for our nations capitol leaders, shame on them. Their sneaky actions hurt US citizens who end up paying end, while the Pols benefit. Rules, are not for them, Oh- No, they only apply to the peons. It is time for a change, and an insistence on Term Limits, and also backgound checks just as evey person applying for a menial job has to undergo. I don’t mean to paint all of the DC pols with a dirty brush, for there are some with the right intentions, but are unable to act because of the “BMOC” jerks who are entrenched and are able to stop anything they don’t like from getting on the calendar.

    I suppose we’ll have to wait and see if there are any photos as proof – will any paparazzi have the guts to go to the Dominican to find out?

  • John Stinger

    Thanks for the laughs. All the hatred, vitriol, lies, and distortions directed at the Clintons, and they’re not even going to the D.R.

    “Alcoholics, partying, one frickin’ beer will cause stroke and cardiac arfythmia, Muslim, … ad infinitum.”

    Listening to deranged people making what they think is intelligent commentary is extremely entertaining.

    You guys could learn something from this public display of dimwitted lunacy . . . but you won’t.

    You’ll be back tomorrow posting the same old stupidity.

    YOU credit that AP photo as from May 25, 2008. WHY are you being dishonest?

    I’ll ask again: Where was it said that the photo was supposed to be of Hillary at the resort in question?

  • Sox The Cat

    No word on what they ARE going to be doing NOW mind you… But sounds like the kibosh has now been put on the plans for Punta Cana. Assuming we can believe the State Department. (Cough-BENGAZI-Cough) Because they have such credibility, you know.

    I’m sorry some of you are so jealous but I really don’t think Hilliary looks that bad in this picture. I don’t care for her and I would never vote for her but as one woman to another, I would never bully her or harass another woman like this.

    Who the hell gives a rat’s ass where hillary is?

    But, since you brought up the subject, Phillippe, you remember, back when Hillary was co-President, when she went to Pyongyang and visited The Dear Leader, and the main stream media hushed it up nice and tidy?

    So, does hillary plan to return to Communist nK, to call upon [and grovel to] the new Dear Leader, [and fellow Commie] Kim Jong Un?

    Some LibRule condemned me for tweeting this claiming the ‘story’ had been retracted… as if Hillary’s fake concussion excuse is defensible.

  • CeeDee

    Really, Jim, they are supposed to be the department of diplomats?!

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    Isn’t it rather interesting that the story on the Dominican Today website, if it’s untrue, hasn’t been retracted yet as of this posting?

    “Listening to deranged people making what they think is intelligent commentary is extremely entertaining….”

    Yes, John, it is. We’re anxiously awaiting your next comment ….

  • Seron

    The photo is an old one. PIAPS looks much older and fatter these days.

    So much unsupported information. Although I hate the worthless Clintons with a passion, I would like some verification. The country would be much better had the draft dodger stayed in one of the places where he committed treason and if worthless # 2 had never been heard of.
