Hillary Clinton took a break from her “And Then I Blamed…” Tour to insult the female White House Press Secretary (who – full disclosure – happens to be my daughter, Sarah Huckabee Sanders.) Sarah was asked if Trump plans to read Hillary’s book, “What Happened.” She replied that she didn’t know, but he’s already pretty well-versed on what happened, as are most Americans: “Hillary Clinton ran one of the most negative campaigns in history and lost and the last chapter of her public life is going to be now defined by propping up book sales with false and reckless attacks. And I think that that’s a sad way for her to continue.”
Hillary laughed off the comment on “The View” in that strange, poorly-programmed robot-style laugh of hers, and replied: “I honestly don’t pay much attention to what she says. I think unfortunately — and I don’t say this with any kind of glee, I’m sad about it, we’re not getting the kind of information from this White House that we should have, whether you agree or disagree, whatever your party affiliation might be.”
In our house, people were raised to tell the truth, and after a lifetime of dealing with the Clintons in Arkansas, I don’t think that can be said about their family. Just in that brief statement alone, she makes at least three claims that have my eyebrows raised to the ceiling: that she “honestly” doesn’t pay attention to White House press briefings, especially ones that mention her…that she’s “sad” at the thought of a high federal official not being completely honest and transparent with the public (says the woman who deleted 33,000 emails and scrubbed her devices before letting investigators see them)…and that she actually accuses other people of not being trustworthy. Go back and reread Sarah’s statement. What part of it isn’t true?
I’ll be glad when this book tour is over. It seems to be taking longer to pass than Hurricane Irma and comes with a bigger hot air mass.
