CHAPPAQUA — Sen. Hillary Clinton this morning blasted the producers of a new film depicting the assassination of Pres. George W. Bush.
"I think it's despicable," Clinton said of "Death of a President," a fictional film that features a staged assassination of the president in 2007. "I think it's absolutely outrageous. That anyone would even attempt to profit on such a horrible scenario makes me sick."
Whatever the motivation, that's the kind of statement someone had to make. Thanks Hillary.
The international critics decided to honor the film, of course, with the Fipresci Award.
