In one of the most painful focus groups that I have ever witnessed, a collection of undecided voters told the unadulterated truth about one of the presidential candidates.
After watching a short clip of CBS’ Scott Pelley asking Hillary Clinton if she had ever lied to the American people, which led to an extremely awkward part of the conversation.
Scott Pelley:You talk about leveling with the American people. Have you always told the truth?
Hillary Clinton:I’ve always tried to. Always. Always.
Scott Pelley:Some people are gonna call that wiggle room that you just gave yourself.
Hillary Clinton:Well, no, I’ve always tried —
Scott Pelley:I mean, Jimmy Carter said, “I will never lie to you.”
Hillary Clinton:Well, but, you know, you’re asking me to say, “Have I ever?” I don’t believe I ever have. I don’t believe I ever have. I don’t believe I ever will. I’m gonna do the best I can to level with the American people.
Yeah. It was bad. You didn’t buy it, and neither did the focus group. Here’s what a couple of the ladies had to say about what they saw.
“You could turn off the sound and still see on her face that she was lying. She was the worst liar I think I’ve ever seen in my life.”
Another woman added, “She lied about lying.”
