Bill, Hillary Clinton Share Eagles’ Anecdote During Tour Stop In Philadelphia

April 13, 2019 at 10:30 pm

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Former President Bill Clinton and former and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were in Philadelphia Saturday night as part of their North American speaking tour. The couple spoke at The Met Philly on Broad Street. Before an audience of ticket-buyers, the democratic stalwarts spoke about politics and the Super Bowl winning Eagles.

“Our son-in-law, who we adore, and his wonderful mother who is here tonight, are from Philadelphia,” said Hillary Clinton. “I think the very first onesie that either of our grandchildren first put on was an Eagles, and after they learned how to say mommy and daddy, before they learned to say grandma and pop pop, they were ‘Fly Eagles, Fly.’ So, we had to be here.”

The Clintons shared other stories and anecdotes from their time in public service.

Hillary Clinton: Julian Assange Must ‘Answer for What He Has Done’

Stephen Yang/Reuters

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Julian Assange must “answer for what he has done” after the WikiLeaks founder was arrested on Thursday. At an event in New York, Clinton reportedly said that the charges against Assange make it clear that he is being punished for hacking into a “military computer to steal information from the United States government,” rather than for being a journalist. The Guardian reports Clinton also noted that Assange faces other criminal charges. “Look, I’ll wait and see what happens with the charges and how it proceeds, but he skipped bail in the UK,” she said. “The bottom line is he has to answer for what he has done, at least as it’s been charged.”

Hillary and Bill Clinton accompanied U.S. Representative Debbie Dingell to her husband’s funeral. Bill Clinton delivered the eulogy.


WASHINGTON — A week after his death in Dearborn, former U.S. Rep. John Dingell was remembered Thursday in the nation’s capital by several legislative colleagues and one old hunting buddy — former President Bill Clinton.

“The thing that I loved most about him was that he was a world-class doer,” said Clinton of Dingell, who during more than 59 years in Congress helped write and pass some of the most important civil rights, environmental and health care legislation in the nation’s history. “John Dingell was just about the best doer in the history of American public life.”

Dingell, a Democrat who became the longest-serving member of Congress, died last week at age 92. A funeral was held for him in Dearborn on Tuesday and another service began Thursday shortly after 10:30 a.m. at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in northwest Washington, D.C.

A veteran, he is expected to be interred at Arlington National Cemetery on Friday.

Longtime Rep. John Dingell was remembered Thursday as ‘one of the greats’ as lawmakers and former colleagues hailed his record-breaking service in the House.

The 92-year-old Dingell who died last week, served 59 years in Congress, longer than anyone else in U.S. history. The Michigan Democrat was the longtime chairman of the powerful House Energy and Commerce Committee.

Many of the laws forged over the past 60 years reflect Dingell’s influence, former House Speaker John Boehner and other speakers said, and touch on everything from health care to the environment, civil rights and the auto industry, which Dingell fiercely defended throughout his tenure.
