We had an entire debate full of some of the worst Republican clowns ever, who took multiple shots at Hillary Clinton during the night, but one thing was startlingly missing.
That thing is “BENGHAZI BENGHAZI BENGHAZI!”
Republicans have been riding the Benghazi propaganda gravy train for literally years now, but tonight at the summit of Bulls*it Mountain, it was barely even approached by the candidates, thanks to Hillary completely destroying them during her recent committee testimony.
Marco Rubio skirted the issue in a passing fashion but didn’t even stop to talk about it very much. Nobody else even ventured close. It seems that the final nail in the coffin of Benghazi has been pounded home. Previous debates had big talk of it throughout them. It was even used as a dodge by some when they didn’t want to answer the question they were asked. But, tonight? One would think that Republicans never heard of this Ben Ghazi person.
With this unspoken admission that Benghazi is a huge “nothing burger” that is several years past its expiration date, hopefully we actually CAN move onto some modest discussion of valid issues when it comes to election time, instead of the same old quest for the “truth that doesn’t exist”.
