At last night’s Town Hall, Hillary Clinton was asked why she doesn’t seem to be connecting with the young people.
“In fact, I’ve heard quite a few people my age that think you’re dishonest.”
Don’t worry kid. It’s not just people your age. Let’s see how Hillary responds…
Okay, okay, this is the real quote…
“If you’re new to politics, if it’s the first time you’ve really paid attention, you go ‘oh my gosh, look at all of this’ and say, ‘why are they throwing all of that at her’? I’ll tell you why — because I’ve been on the front lines of change and progress since I was your age. I’ve been fighting for kids and women and the people left out and left behind to help them make the most of their lives.”
Let’s start with the fact that literally none of those things are true. She has done the opposite of that. If it were true, she would cite specific examples. That’s what we call “substantiating” your assertion. Also, MEGA-IRONY ALERT: when Hillary helped her husband assert his patriarchal authority upon Monica Lewinsky for sexual favors, Monica was both a women and a kid. True story. Not to mention all of the other women she victim-blamed. Her response to every single rape and/or sexual harassment accusation toward Bill was precisely…
Only she did believe them. She knew it was true. Which is worse. Let me put it this way: if only ONE THIRD of the accusations toward Bill Clinton are partially true, that means that Hillary was complicit in at least half a dozen sexual harassment cases on behalf of her husband.
Also DOUBLE-MEGA-SECRET IRONY ALERT: her way to address concerns of dishonesty from young voters here … is to be dishonest, talk down to them and make herself look old in the process. The jokes write themselves.
I’m beginning to think I want to run against her instead of Bernie. You?
