Thursday morning, Hillary Clinton gave a press conference in White Plains, NY in order to clarify a few things about Wednesday night’s Veteran’s forum:
“Let me be clear: Last night was yet another test and Donald Trump failed yet again. We saw more evidence that he is temeprmentally unfit and totally unqualified to be Commander in Chief. He trashed talked American generals, saying they’d been ‘reduced to rubble.’ He suggested he would fire them and replace them with his handpicked generals. He attacked dozens of former flag officers by saying ‘we’ve been losing for us for a long time.'”
Remember, Republicans are supposed to be the party that “loves” the military above all else. If a Democrat said this, they would be hounded out of the country. The double standard is galling.
Then Hillary went on to slam Trump for praising Putin yet again and “taking the astonishing step of suggesting that he prefers the Russian president to our American president.” She also expressed a very legitimate concern that Trump would turn a blind eye to Putin’s aggressive expansionism and make excuses for him.
Trump’s ego is so inflated that Putin already knows if he continues to compliment the clueless blowhard, Russia could invade half of Europe and Trump would let him do it.
Speaking to conservative voters, Hillary took the unusual step of invoking Saint Ronnie:
“What would Ronald Reagan say about a Republican nominee that attacks American generals and heaps praise on a Russian president? I think we know the answer.”
I’m old enough to remember when Obama having “Czars” was tantamount to treason and part of a plot to hand America over to the filthy Commies in Russia. Funny how now it’s acceptable to praise a country that, just 4 years ago, was supposed to be our greatest enemy, according to Republicans.
Clinton then takes a money to ridicule Trump’s “take the oil” talking point as pure fantasy that Trump hasn’t bothered to think through.
“The United States of America does not invade other countries to plunder and pillage.”
On Trump’s plans for ISIS, Hillary points out the obvious: “He says his plan is still a secret but the truth is he simply doesn’t have one and that’s not only dangerous, it should be disqualifying.” And she’s absolutely right; Trump should either explain his “plan” or just admit he has no idea what he’s talking about. Again, if Hillary refused to explain her policies, she would be roasted alive by the “liberal” media.
Hillary’s statement lasted just 6 minutes but it was another devastating blow to an opponent whose best comeback is name-calling and lying about Hillary’s health. If Trump manages to work up the nerve to face her on the debate stage, she’s going to mop the floor with him.
