Islam Politics Terrorism

The Crazy Twisted Logic of Hillary Clinton

 

During Saturday night’s Democrat presidential debate, there were a few things that got people really buzzing… unfortunately for Democrats all of them were bad.

First, none of the Democrat candidates really seemed to understand what Islamic terrorism is, let alone how they might combat it. Second, Bernie Sander is one crazy dude. He thinks that terrorism is directly related to global warming… seriously. Apparently, all of those crazy, violent Muslim radicals are just tired of everything being so darned hot. Thirdly, and probably most importantly, Hillary Clinton is just as crazy as Bernie Sanders. During one particularly insane moment in the debate she seemed to say that she took so much money from Wall Street because… 9/11.

It was ugly. And weird.

I represented New York, and I represented New York on 9/11 when we were attacked. Where were we attacked? We were attacked in downtown Manhattan where Wall Street is. I did spend a whole lot of time and effort helping them rebuild. That was good for New York. It was good for the economy and it was a way to rebuke the terrorists who had attacked our country.

So, you know, it’s fine for you to say what you’re going to say, but I looked very carefully at your proposal. Reinstating Glass- Steagall is a part of what very well could help, but it is nowhere near enough. My proposal is tougher, more effective, and more comprehensive because I go after all of Wall Street not just the big banks.

RNC chair Reince Priebus jumped at the chance to knock Hillary for her odd and illogical response.

Others on Twitter were equally surprised at Hillary arrival at a new level of low.

But Twitter hated her backpedalling from the terrible answer even more. After CBS moderator Nancy Cordes read one of the tweets back to Clinton and asked if she was sorry about bringing up 9/11 to justify her Wall Street money, Clinton responded in typical Clintonian fashion.

“I’m sorry that whoever tweeted that had that impression because I worked closely with New Yorkers after 9/11 for my entire first term to rebuild, so yes, I did know people. I’ve had a lot of folks who give me donations from all kinds of backgrounds say, ‘I don’t agree with you on everything but I like what you do, I like how you stand up, I’m going to support you.”

OR…

‘I’m sorry you’re too stupid to understand what I was saying but just because I used 9/11 to justify my Wall Street donations doesn’t mean I was using 9/11 to justify my Wall Street donations.’ Get it?
