What a bizarre spectacle it was during the Univision-Washington Post Democrat Debate when I found myself feeling bad for Jorge Ramos.
The journalist who previously made headlines for being kicked out of a Trump rally by the Donald himself asked Hillary a question about Benghazi during the debate.
I want to continue with the issue of trust. Secretary Clinton, on the night of the attacks in Benghazi, you sent an e-mail to your daughter Chelsea …
The audience erupted with boos. Apparently even the anticipation of a real question is too much to handle.
Ramos plowed through, noting that Clinton had emailed Chelsea Clinton to say that al-Qaida “was responsible for the killing of the Americans.” Over more booing, Ramos trudged onward, saying that “some of the families claim that you lied to them” — especially Patricia Smith, the mother of State Department official Sean Smith, who died in the attacks of Sept. 11, 2012.Hillary pretended to show some sympathy for the Benghazi families – before politicizing the issue, partially blaming the attacks on a video (for how long has that claim been debunked?) Patricia Smith had some very select words in response to Hillary after the debate.
“I want to speak to her personally, and I want to be able to ask her what happened, and I want her to be able to tell me what happened. I don’t believe she’s got the guts to do that. As Madeleine Albright said, there’s special place in hell for people like her, and I hope she enjoys it there.
I don’t know why she wouldn’t. She can’t have many friends in heaven.
