In her much ballyhooed foreign policy speech in San Diego, Hillary Clinton declared Donald Trump unqualified to be President of the United States. That’s rich, because Hillary Clinton has failed miserably at every endeavor that she’s ever taken on or has been assigned. The failures are epic, e.g., her firing from the Watergate Committee for ethical violations, her HillaryCare fiasco, her term as an undistinguished carpet bagging New York Senator, and her tenure as one of the worst Secretaries of State ever. She was also responsible for four deaths at Benghazi because she didn’t “answer the crisis call at 3:00 a.m.” that a responsible leader is expected to handle.
But her calling Donald Trump “a scammer” for his marketing of Trump University is a silly case of a smudge pot calling a stainless steel kettle black. From her miracle $1,000 to $100,000 profit from playing the commodities market, (mostly due to broker manipulation of payouts to favored clients), to Whitewater, Hillary Clinton demonstrated early on that she’s morally inert. Her moral unfitness for the Presidency is confirmed by her lies to the families of the Benghazi victims and to the American people concerning the use of a private e-mail account to handle government business.
Whether Trump University was a scam or not will be an issue for a jury to decide. But the question of whether Hillary violated national security, espionage laws, and Federal document handling and retention laws will be for Obama’s prejudiced Attorney General to decide. Don’t hold your breath, but it doesn’t look like a grand jury will be empaneled anytime soon.
Hillary Clinton loves to argue that because she’s a woman that’s enough to qualify her to be President. But her gender is an irrelevant diversion from substantive issues that the next President of the United States must be qualified to handle. In the final analysis, Clinton’s only real qualifications for the job of POTUS is that she’s over 35 years old, has lived for at least 14 years in the U.S., and is a natural born citizen of the U.S.Tags: Benghazi Donald Trump Hillary Clinton
