Hillary Clinton gave a strange video shout-out to ‘activist b***hes supporting b***hes’ Friday night, just hours after answering to allegations that she protected a campaign adviser’s job after he was accused of sexual harassment.

The former presidential candidate made the remarks in a video posted to Twitter Friday by Huffington Post commentator Alex Mohajer.
‘Hey everyone, I just wanted to say thanks,’ she says in the video, which is zoomed in on her face.
‘Thank you for your feminism, for your activism, and all I can hope if you keep up the really important good work.’
Then off screen, someone can be heard saying ‘activist b***hes supporting b***hes,’ to as Hillary gives a hearty laugh.
She then repeats it, chuckling and saying: ‘And let me just say, this is directed to the activist b***hes supporting b***hes, so let’s go.’

It’s not clear exactly when or where the video was taken – but it appears to have been shot just before or after Friday night’s MusiCares Person of the Year Awards at Radio City Music Hall, which honored Fleetwood Mac.
Their 1977 song ‘Don’t Stop’ helped power Bill Clinton into the White House in 1992 – so on Friday he presented the band with statuettes as the 2018 MusicCares honorees, making them the first band to win the annual award given to a musician for creative achievements and charitable work.
The unusual video was posted just hours after The New York Times reported that Clinton kept top adviser Burns Strider from being fired after he was accused of sexually harassing a 30-year-old subordinate during the 2008 election.
Hillary responded to these claims Friday night, tweeting that she was ‘dismayed’ at the time of the allegations, and that the woman was ‘heard’ and ‘had her concerns taken seriously.’
‘A story appeared today about something that happened in 2008. I was dismayed when it occurred, but was heartened the young woman came forward, was heard, and had her concerns taken seriously and addressed,’ Hillary wrote.
In a follow-up tweet she added: ‘I called her today to tell her how proud I am of her and to make sure she knows what all women should: we deserve to be heard.’
She didn’t directly address how the victim ‘was heard,’ and didn’t explain why she reassigned the woman and protected the adviser.
