Lately, I've been hearing from friends who ask why Hillary Clinton isn't trusted when Donald Trump is clearly the bigger liar. I don't know why and I'm not sure anyone else does either. What I do know is that I don't trust either of them, and I'll tell you why.
I don't trust Donald Trump for the simple reason that he's a liar and a bully. If I really need to provide you with evidence of this, then you're simply not paying attention and that's your fault, not mine.
As far as Hillary Clinton goes, I think she is deceptive and manipulative. If she weren't running against such a buffoon, I'm not sure anyone would vote for her. What has she lied about? Here’s a short list (there's more, but this should give you an idea):
She said she complied with every State Department rule regarding e-mails—but she didn’t.
She claimed her use of a private server was allowed—but it wasn’t.
She claims she has been as transparent as possible even while refusing to turn over her server.
She claimed other Secretaries of State used private servers when they didn’t; Colin Powell used a private e-mail address, but not a private server.
She claimed there was no classified material on her server when there was.
She claimed that Trump said his hosting of the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow was part of his foreign policy experience, but he never said that.
She said that Trump wanted to eliminate the VA, which is untrue.
She said that Trump wanted to leave NATO. That’s not what exactly he said.
She claimed that Trump said women would start making equal pay when a woman does as good a job as a man. He never said that.
She claims that in the last ten years, prescription prices have doubled. Untrue.
She claims that Obamacare has driven health care costs down when it hasn’t.
She falsely claimed that she came under sniper fire on a trip to Bosnia.
She claimed that all her grandparents were immigrants. Not true
I agree that many of these things are petty and not terribly important, but they seem to indicate a pattern of deceptive behavior. Remember her on Whitewater? I'm not certain that the Clintons really did anything wrong in that case, but her continuous obstructive behavior is not what I want to see in my president.
