Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has earned such a strong reputation as a lying charlatan that even folks on her own side of the political fence can’t help but get a case of the giggles when she claims to be telling the truth.
This is precisely what happened during an interview Clinton had with CNN host Don Lemon.
Hillary stated she was way more transparent than GOP rival Donald Trump, which caused Lemon to lose a bit of his composure and break out into a chuckle.
This statement comes hot on the heels of Clinton collapsing during an event on Sunday, lending credibility to the rumors she’s hiding information about her failing health.
The Washington Free Beacon is reporting, CNN host Don Lemon laughed after Hillary Clinton suggested that she is the most transparent presidential candidate in history. CNN on Thursday morning aired an excerpt of a radio discussion between Clinton, Lemon, and NewsOne host Roland Martin on the Tom Joyner Morning Show.
Lemon asked Clinton about former Secretary of State Colin Powell’s leaked emails that were released this week, some of which were critical of Clinton. The Democratic nominee responded by saying that she did not want to comment on anything related to Powell’s private emails, which came from his personal Gmail account.
One email sent from Powell to Democratic megadonor Jeffrey Leeds drew particular attention.
“Everything HRC touches she kind of screws up with hubris,” Powell wrote.
Lemon referenced this email and rephrased the question to ask Clinton what she would say to other critics who share Powell’s sentiment.
“I think I’ve worked very, very hard to be more transparent than not just my opponent, but in a comparison to anybody’s who’s run,” Clinton said.
Lemon could not help but laugh during Clinton’s response before proceeding with the interview.
There’s no possible way she’s being serious, right? That would be ludicrous.
Hillary Clinton has more dark, dirty secrets than almost all current office holders combined, and that’s no small feat.
Maybe she can put that down as an accomplishment on her resume?
Let’s hope we don’t have to put with this shenanigans for another four years come November.
