Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt recently took the time to explain to CNN why Hillary Clinton’s recent foreign policy speech was simply a whole lot of nothing. Particularly, he wondered how anyone could trust Hillary Clinton about Donald Trump when they can’t even trust her about his own record?
“There is an ocean of difference between her record and her rhetoric…
Let me start with the speech… It was very elegantly delivered… a friend might think it was effective, but a longtime opponent like me knows there is an ocean of difference between her record and her rhetoric. She said ‘Making the right call requires keeping a cool head.’ And I thought to the night os Sept. 11, 2012, when she left the State Dept. at 1:00am and dissembled about Benghazi.
She said she went toe-to-toe with Putin and China, and I thought about Ukraine and the South China Sea. And then most jaw-droppingly, she said we need to win the war in Cyberspace. This from an individual who maintained a private email server that was compromised by our enemies. ‘Does that mean wipe it down, like with a cloth?’ She misled and probably will be the subject of an FBI investigation. She didn’t answer Chris Hayes about that when he asked. So why should we believe Hillary Clinton about Donald Trump when we can’t trust her on her own record?”
