Now I know for sure that liberals live in a fantasy world. It’s the only explanation for some of the ridiculous things they say, like “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor,” “I did not have sexual relations with that woman,” or the most recent example from Hillary Clinton – “Well people should and do trust me and I have every confidence that that will be the outcome of this election.”
In her first major media interview since announcing her run for President a few months back, Clinton was on CNN talking to reporter Brianna Keilar when she began parroting her favorite talking points about “right-wing” conspiracies and how she bears no blame for the scandals that follow her around everywhere she goes. It’s really a shining example of the main reason so many of us are disgusted with most politicians today, but most disgusted by the queen of despicable behavior, Hillary Clinton.
Brianna Keiler: I’m wondering if you can address a vulnerability that we’ve seen you dealing with recently. We see in our recent poll, that nearly 6 in 10 Americans say they don’t believe that you’re honest and trustworthy. Do you understand why they feel that way?
Hillary Clinton: Well, I think when you are subjected to the kind of constant barrage of attacks that are largely fomented by and coming from the right.
Brianna Keiler: Trusting someone to fight for them and trusting someone, these are two different things. Do you see any role that you’ve had in this sentiment that we’ve seen where people are questioning whether you’re trustworthy?
Hillary Clinton: I can only tell you, Brianna, that this has been a theme that has been used against me and my husband for many, many years.
Brianna Keiler: Would you vote for someone you don’t trust?
Hillary Clinton: Well people should and do trust me and I have every confidence that that will be the outcome of this election. I cannot decide what the attacks on me will be no matter how unfounded.
Washington Post journalist Carl Bernstein listened to what Clinton had to say and wasn’t buying any of it. He openly discussed Clinton’s “difficult relationship with the truth,” while simultaneously trying to give her permission to be a liar. (Bernstein is the definition of a liberal member of the media.) Bernstein argued that Clinton has become such an adept and compulsive liar because she and her husband have been “under attack” in politics for the last 30 years! It’s a new defense, maybe it’s one that the Clinton campaign will start using? Her next ad could say something like…
‘Sure, Hillary Clinton is a liar, but it’s okay because she’s been a politician for a long time!’
I’m hoping America doesn’t buy this line of B.S. or the one about her problems always being the fault of the “vast right-wing conspiracy.”
Carl Bernstein: And her situation is that she is having a difficult relationship to the truth — as the book says in its closing pages — since the Arkansas years…
Alisyn Camerota: But what you’re saying is because she has been under attack for a long time, she has started to fudge her answers?
Carl Bernstein: First of all, we have to look at what politicians do generally in terms of fudging. It’s endemic in the profession. But she has become a kind of specialist at it. Why has she become a kind of specialist? It has to do I think with the peculiarity of the Clinton situation. It had partly to do with the history of Bill Clinton and women in which she’s had to defend him. It’s been very difficult to do with the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
