Twice failed presidential hopeful employed her notorious fake southern accent when speaking at a historic black church in Selma, Alabama Sunday.

“Oh, this is the day the Lord has made!” the scandal-plagued former secretary of state exclaimed. “Let us rejoice and be glad in it! Oh!”

“Reverend Green, when those bones get up, and when that spirit is breathed into them, and they start climbing out of that valley, the first place they go is to register to vote.”

She invoked failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams to the mostly black audience.

Quoting Abrams, Clinton used a folksy tone.

“She said, look, I can’t go back and win 2018, but we can win 2020 and 2022 and every election going into the future,” Hillary said.

Reminding the crowd that Black History Month just ended, Clinton said there was one person she was “thinkin’” about: Ida B. Wells.

Clinton has a turning on a fake southern drawl when talking to black audiences or giving speeches in the south.

She peppered her remarks at a 2015 appearance in Memphis before a mostly black audience with a strange Southern southern twang.


“I gotta tell you. I loved coming to Memphis in the past,” Clinton said with an exaggerated drawl, “You know, I didn’t live too far away for a long time, just across the river. Do we have anybody from Arkansas here toniiiiight?”

In 2006, Clinton drew criticism on Martin Luther King Jr. Day after invoking a southern accent when telling a mostly black audience at a Harlem Church that Republicans have run the House “like a plantation.”

“For the last five years, we’ve had no. Power. At All. And that makes a big difference, because when you look at the way the House of Representatives has been run, it has been run like a plantation,” Clinton sassed: And you know what I’m talkin’ about.”

Clinton is one of a number of Democratic leaders in Selma this weekend for the ceremonies  to mark the 54th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday.”

The events in Alabama commemorated March 7, 1965, when peaceful demonstrators were beaten back by Alabama state troopers as they attempted to cross the Edmund Pettus Bridge. The moment galvanized support for the passage of the Voting Rights Act later that year.

Democrat Senators Al Gore Sr. and Robert Byrd, former KKK  Cyclops who Clinton has praised a friend and mentor,  joined the group of Democrats who staged a filibuster against the 1965 Civil Rights Act.
