As a rule, Hillary Clinton is generally absurd and tonight was no different during the Democrat debate which was broadcast on Univision (as well as CNN).
At various points, Hillary claimed that Bernie Sanders supported The Minutemen and The Koch Brothers. Bernie is many things. A supporter of The Minutemen or The Koch Brothers are not among those things.
But Hillary sank to a new low when in response to a question from Jorge Ramos on Benghazi for which the audience booed him lustily. Ramos played a video of Patricia Smith (the mother of Navy SEAL Sean Smith who was killed in the attack) in which she said Hillary had told her an internet video was to blame for the attack when she had e-mailed to tell Chelsea it was a terrorist attack. Hillary claimed Smith was wrong and that information was changing on an hourly basis. Balderdash. From the time of the attack through the presidential election, the Obama Administration kept hammering that was an internet video.
Hillary then proceeded to minimize Smith’s grief by saying that Benghazi wasn’t the first time Americans had been killed by terrorists citing both 9/11, the attacks on our embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998 as well as the 1982 bombings of the U.S. Marine barracks in Lebanon. She went on to say that none of these attacks were politicized like Benghazi.
What utter bunk! It was clear from the get go that all three of the aforementioned attacks were acts of terrorism. Presidents Reagan, Clinton and Bush did not try to blame an internet video or otherwise deny terrorism had taken place. The same cannot be said of Benghazi.
But to add insult to injury, HIllary went on to claim that the internet video was partially responsible for the attacks and claimed the sole individual detained for the attacks said as much. Sure let’s just take his word at face value.
And this attack just happened to take place on, of all dates, September 11th.
While I am firmly in the #NeverTrump camp, it is responses such as this one which also put me in #NeverHillary camp with equal firmness.
