This time Fox News is making a big fuss about Hillary Clinton’s “fake” Southern accent.

Gimme a break, please.

My brother, a lifelong resident of Connecticut and the son of two very northern, English-speaking parents, went to college in Radford, Virgina. In a matter of days, he sounded more like Jimmy Carter than Jimmy Carter.

The last time I visited family in Florida, it took about 24 hours for me to “catch” a Southern accent, much to the amusement of my uncle and cousins.

Fox News is just fabricating more ammo for the right-wing to use against Hillary. Because she has a genuine ability to relate to all kinds of people, their only defense is to accuse her of being “political” and “fake.”
