The old lady lied about Trump. Flat out lied. Taking a page from the Obama playbook, Hillary figured she’d spout something and assumed everyone would accept it as fact. During the sparsely watched debate Clinton spit out a beauty:
“He is becoming ISIS’s best recruiter. They are going to people showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists.”
And the dumbasses in the audience loved it.
There’s just one thing. It’s a lie. It was so egregious that the left wing fact checker Politifact called it “false.” Not “partially true” as Politifact usually leans to to try to salvage democrat utterances. Just false.”
Watch Clinton spokesman Jennifer Palmieri stumble her way through an attempted defense of Clinton:
That’s not to say that the left wasn’t doing it best to save her backside. Vox channeled Dan Rather and the “fake but accurate” angle:
Clinton’s basic point Saturday night — that Trump whipping up anti-Muslim fervor helps ISIS — is sound.
Using the painfully twisted logic of the left, they concluded that it was a complete lie but it was fundamentally true.
Mark Halperin, a transparently left wing Clinton sycophant, jumped into the tank and did his best to protect Clinton:
Brzezinski then pushed Halperin to admit that Clinton lied about Donald Trump at Saturday’s Democratic debate.
“And did Hillary Clinton lie on stage on Saturday night about Donald Trump’s being an ISIS recruiter?” she said, using an acronym for the Islamic State.
Halperin was hesitant to say that Clinton lied, but admitted that she did not tell the truth.
“She was factually incorrect. I’m not sure I would say lie in that case, but she was wrong,” he said.
Factually incorrect, but not a lie?
Lie: 3. an inaccurate or false statement; a falsehood.
Rightfully, Trump is demanding an apology:
“I will demand an apology from Hillary. She should apologize,” Trump said Monday on the “Today” show. “She lies about emails, she lies about Whitewater, she lies about everything. She will be a disaster as president of the United States.”
Clinton’s campaign say there will be no apology coming for this overt lie:
“Hell no,” said Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon. “Hillary Clinton will not be apologizing to Donald Trump for correctly pointing out how his hateful rhetoric only helps ISIS recruit more terrorists.”
Clinton apparently came into possession of this video while dodging sniper fire in Bosnia. On the other hand, there is something ironic about Hillary blaming a video. Perhaps equally ironic is that while Trump is not in any known ISIS recruiting video, Bill Clinton is.
So let’s add up the Clinton problems:
Often gets confused
Sleeps through meetings
It ain’t pretty. This is why Wasserman-Schultz is hiding Hillary Clinton debates.
