It seems that every time Hillary Clinton opens her mouth, her socks get wet from all that saliva. You would think the presumptive Democratic nominee would think before engaging the mouth, but that could very well be yet another problem in this scandal plagued campaign.
Yesterday, Clinton was addressing a group at Columbia University and was talking about the riots and problems in Baltimore. She said, “We must urgently begin to rebuild the bonds of trust and respect among Americans.” This, coming from a lady that according to Rasmussen Reports, has 51% of the public thinking she’s not trustworthy. So why speak of trust? A whopping 89% of the respondents said that Hillary’s actions as secretary of state were influenced by the donations governments were making to the Clinton Foundation. 77% say she’s either as ethical (38%) or less ethical (39%) than other politicians (not a great group to be compared to. Only 19% thought she was more ethical than politicians. By the way, in the middle of the “Bridgegate scandal”, Chris Christie only had 66% saying he was as ethical (46%) or more unethical (20%).
Every day, the tsunami of information of what Hillary did to help the Clinton Foundation instead of the American people seems to get wider, bigger, deeper, faster. And every day her approval numbers, and trust numbers seem to shrink just a little more. Never in the history of presidential politics has someone with such poor approval numbers on trust and ethics even tried to seek the office of president, much less won. And there is no end in sight. Hillary Clinton is a time bomb waiting to explode. Oh, she’s calm and cool, and collected now. But she’s only a couple of weeks into the campaign. And she’s the only candidate on her side so far. Wait until Martin O’Malley gets in. What happens if Elizabeth Warren say’s “Screw it!” and jumps into the fray? You’re going to see a massive revolt of Hillary supporters.
And all the time, Hillary will be there shrieking, “But this is just a political distraction. I want to talk about the issues” as the crowds, and the dollars, and the media lights all break down and head to the next politician in waiting. A reporter even had her on video yesterday as she was leaving a fundraiser in New York, talking to herself as she was getting into a van. Reporters were shouting questions, Hillary never stopped her monologue, waved to the crowd, and got in the van…never stopping her one-woman show.
Look, I can see this becoming a major melt-down moment up the road. Somewhere when things get rough, and Hillary HAS to answer the calls of her opponents, she’s going to have to face the fact that she’s lied…Bill has lied…and then she loses all trust.
It’s like i said months ago. The way to end her campaign is with one question: “Have you ever lied to the American public?”
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
