At last, Bill Clinton speaks out about that angry Hillary video

Democrats Bill and Hillary Clinton

You no doubt remember the Ticket item earlier this week on Hillary Clinton visibly bristling at a public forum in Africa when a translator passed on an audience member's question as "What does your husband think?" instead of "What does your president think?"

Watch this video now:

Don't mess with HRC, right?

When she said it, her husband, the ex-president, was celebrating his birthday in Vegas, you remember, the wild Nevada city where the current president said Americans shouldn't go to spend taxpayer dollars.

Anyway, today the folks over at CBS' "Inside Edition" got an exclusive interview with Bill Clinton about the episode. And rushed over a news release.

Here it is:

Inside Edition’s Les Trent: “Have you seen the video from Africa?”

President Clinton: “No, I haven’t.”

-- Andrew Malcolm
