As we all know, Hillary Clinton is a shameless liar. She lies almost as much as Donald Trump. She lies a lot.
She even lies about her own supporters. Here’s a stupid lie she just told about them, according to Rebecca Traister at New York Magazine:
The sexism is less virulent now than it was in 2008, she said, but still she encounters people on rope lines who tell her, “‘I really admire you, I really like you, I just don’t know if I can vote for a woman to be president.’ I mean, they come to my events and then they say that to me.”
Gosh, her campaign would be doing a lot better if so many Democrats who go out to her events didn’t hate women!
Taken singly, I could believe these claims. Yes, there are people who like and admire Hillary Clinton. Americans like all sorts of horrible things. (Sorry, Big Bang Theory.) I can believe that people come up to her at her events and say nice things about her.
And I can believe that there are people who don’t think a woman, any woman, should ever be president. Just because Hillary is using sexism and misogyny as a crutch, having nothing else whatsoever to campaign on, that doesn’t mean sexism and misogyny don’t exist.
But now she’s asking me to believe that there are people who really like her and don’t think she should be president because she’s a woman and come up to her at campaign events to say it to her face. She just crams too many contradictory claims into one statement and makes a complete hash of it. She doesn’t know when to stop lying. And why would she learn? It’s gotten her this far in life.
Hillary’s only hope this November is to convince just enough Americans that she’s marginally less awful than her opponent. Right now they’re neck-and-neck. If she thinks she’ll pull ahead by lying about her own supporters…
Yeah. You do that, Grandma. America’s in big trouble whether you win or not, but at least I can enjoy your concession speech.
