Looks like campaigning is taking its toll on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Months ago, Hillary’s email servers were wiped clean, but apparently so was her brain. What she said yesterday about Benghazi can only be said by someone with complete memory loss – or a liar.
Per Fox News, Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton committed her second gaffe in as many days on the campaign trail Monday night, claiming that the U.S. “didn’t lose a single person” in Libya during her time as secretary of state.
A single person? Not one ambassador? Not one State Department employee? Not two brave former Navy SEALs? Nope, according to the truth-challenged Mrs. Clinton, the carnage at Benghazi never happened.
Clinton made the comment defending her push for regime change in the war-torn North African nation at an Illinois town hall hosted by MSNBC.“Now, is Libya perfect? It isn’t,” Clinton said. After contrasting her approach toward Libya with the ongoing bloodshed in Syria’s civil war, Clinton said “Libya was a different kind of calculation and we didn’t lose a single person … We didn’t have a problem in supporting our European and Arab allies in working with NATO.”
This unforgivable statement — which can hardly be called a “gaffe” – comes on the heels of another foot-in-mouth display from Mrs. Clinton.
Earlier Monday, Clinton’s campaign was forced to scramble to clarify comments she made about coal jobs at a CNN town hall Sunday night. “I’m the only candidate which has a policy about how to bring economic opportunity using clean renewable energy as the key into coal country,” Clinton said, “because we’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.”
Yep, that went over REALLY well with voters in Ohio and Illinois whose jobs depend on the coal industry.
You just keep those hits coming Hillary. Swing for the fences ma’am.
