Everybody knows what’s not to like about Trump. But the media is quite bashful about what’s wrong with Clinton.
Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi. Incidentally, the film-maker she accused of being the cause of the Benghazi attacks and murders of four U.S. Citizens she was responsible for protecting? He’s homeless. After blaming him for instigating the attacks by making a film muslims did not like, she engaged in the typical blanket denials and claims she never said that. Personally, I think Benghazi alone out to have, at a minimum, derailed her career. It’s enough. But of course, with the media entirely at her beck and call, it’s barely a blip.
How about Benghazi AND the emails- Did you know that Beghazi is the topic of 30 of the newly recovered emails, you know, the ones she deleted because they had nothing to do with work, but were all about yoga and baby showers?
Perfect health, allergies, over-heated, dehydration, pneumonia (did you know they didn’t even tell her running mate about her pneumonia until after the videos surfaced?)
Hilary and the firing of the men in the travel office:
Are you old enough to remember the firing of the 7 men from the White House travel office? It follows the same pattern we’ve seen in all of the above.
The men were fired out of the blue and the Clinton White House smeared them and said they were the subject of a criminal investigation by the FBI. Ugly.
Then they said no, it was to save money. False. It was to reduce White House staff. It wasn’t. It was Al Gore’s fault. Not even.
It emerged in contemporaneous notes of a high White House staffer that the travel-office workers were removed because Mrs. Clinton wanted to give their jobs—their “slots,” as she put it, according to the notes of director of administration David Watkins—to political operatives who’d worked for Mr. Clinton’s campaign. And she wanted to give the travel office business itself to loyalists. There was a travel company based in Arkansas with long ties to the Clintons. There was a charter travel company founded by Harry Thomason, a longtime friend and fundraiser, which had provided services in the 1992 campaign. If the travel office were privatized and put to bid, he could get the business. On top of that, a staffer named Catherine Cornelius, said to be the new president’s cousin, also wanted to run the travel office.
I guess we get the governance we deserve, and we deserve a lot of coal in our stockings. I have absolutely zero hope that the future for America is bright. It’s dark. Dark as coal.
P.S. “Americans do not appear to be overly concerned with the health of either candidate. According to a separate question in the poll conducted this week, most American adults said the issue would make “no difference” to how they voted.” more here. I wonder what the answer would be if the question was “Do you think this candidate is telling the truth?”
