Hillary Claims She’s the Most Transparent Presidential Candidate Ever
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means….
Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton claimed this morning that she is the most transparent candidate ever. Okay, bro.
“I think I’ve worked very very hard to be more transparent than not just my opponent but really in a comparison to anybody who’s run,” Clinton told the “Tom Joyner Morning Show” in an interview aired Thursday.
“The medical information I put out, and we’re going to put out more, meets and exceeds the standards that other presidential candidates including President Obama and Mitt Romney and others have met.”
Yeah, no. She only becomes transparent once she’s caught in a pickle.
Hillary only released more information on her health on Wednesday because she nearly collapsed at the 9/11 memorial on Sunday. The campaign did not allow any reporters to follow her after her collapse. No one spoke publicly about it for 90 minutes until someone said she felt overheated..in 80 degree weather
Even Chris Cillizza at The Washington Post admits its a problem with the campaign, especially since she had a coughing fit over Labor Day.
Yet, a few hours later, the campaign admitted that doctors diagnosed her with pneumonia on Friday. They STILL lied.
That’s the thing. Hillary actively avoids the media. You cannot claim transparency while avoiding the media. Her campaign immediately took advantage of GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s decision not to have a press pool, but those covering her campaign thought it was a cheap excuse:
“It’s a false equivalency,” said the Washington Post’s Anne Gearan, who is part of a team chairing the Clinton press pool for the remainder of the election but noted she did not know why the Clinton campaign hadn’t allowed a protective pool yet. “We’re advocating for access for the Clinton press pool. Whatever Trump does is immaterial as far as we’re concerned.”
That changed in early September when she received a new plane and finally allowed a formal press pool on board. She also held her FIRST formal press conference on September 8 after 287 days without one. Of course, she used it to bash the media treatment against her. Well, maybe if you didn’t HIDE from the media they wouldn’t have to speculate about you. Just saying.
Of course, you cannot talk about transparency and Hillary without mentioning the email scandal from her term as secretary of state. FBI notes have shown that she cannot find 13 BlackBerry devices she used and her aides even destroyed a few of them with hammers. No one can find an archive laptop with emails on it and a technician used BleachBit to erase emails.
I mean, I could go on, but I don’t want to write a novel. But don’t make these claims when you’re obviously NOT very transparent at all.

Hellary is a lying liar who lies.
That isn’t “transparent”. It isn’t “translucent”. It’s dead solid opacity. No light transmitted at’tall.
That’s just utterly embarrassing, not only for her but also for anyone who falls for that shit. And quite frankly, for anyone who allows her to say it to their face without laughing at her hysterically. It would be hilarious if this bitch wasn’t so dangerous.
There are several definitions of the word “transparent.” If we’re using the one that means, “I can see right through you,” I agree with her.
When you’ve been outed through force by Judicial Watch, I guess that might be considered transparent?????
Anybody else still think the whole thing still reeks?…. Campaign finally says, well…. she had pneumonia on Friday….. Chelsea says Mom never even mentioned it? I’m just saying…. Chelsea has 2 babies at home and Mom doesn’t let her know its a good idea to not drop in and expose them?
from the Google dictionary:
easy to perceive or detect.
“the residents will see through any transparent attempt to buy their votes”
Lies and deceit have always paid quite well for the Clintons. They are both unencumbered by moral conscience and have demonstrated repeatedly that they exist above the law. There’s absolutely no incentive for them to stop.
Don’t forget Chelsea, who has (sadly) learned from her parents. She had choices. She has chosen…unwisely.
She knows everyone knows she lies. She doesn’t care nor do her enablers and voters.
It’s all about the power and money, not much of which will trickle down to her voters.
Nixon was a saint compared to hateful hitlery. If she’s elected you can bet there will be revenge against her opponents.
Right, and if all those yoga emails hadn’t vanished, it would be transparently clear that her 9/11 pitching forward was not a “collapse,” she was just going into downward dog while waiting for her ride.
She invites attention to herself by engaging in nefarious activity and then lying and sliming her way out of trouble. Then she points to the media scrutiny she brought on herself and her twisting everything possible in her response as an example of how transparent she has been. SOP for the Clintons.
I think after this thing is all done we will have a basket of deplorable Hillaryisms to quote repeatedly.
This is very strange, even for Hillary.
Firstly, it’s not a forced move. Usually when she lies, she’s trying to weasel out of an accusation of a crime or act of serious malfeasance—storing classified info on her private unsecured server, for instance.
But failure to run The Most Transparent Campaign In History isn’t a crime, or even particularly bad. America values honesty in Presidents; consider the mythology of Honest Abe, or George Washington, who couldn’t tell a lie about chopping down the cherry tree (an entirely fictional episode, but that’s mythology for you). But we don’t demand honesty of our Presidents, and we don’t really expect to get it; it’s not even a theoretical requirement for qualification to the office. Criminal corruption is different; we don’t want any of that. But fibbing a little now and then to the press? To Congress? To the Russians? All in a day’s work.
So, why does she have to spin this fantasy to protect a claim she doesn’t have to make? Very odd, for someone whose routine, run-of-the-mill lies are so deliberate and calculating.
Secondly, it’s unusually brazen and fantastic. Hillary’s lies are almost always based on (1) rote denial, (2) misdirection and hairsplitting, or (3) memory failure.
No, there’s no classified info on the server.
Well, there may be, but Hillary didn’t put it there.
Well, she may have put some there, but it wasn’t classified at the time.
Well, it may have been classified at the time, but it wasn’t marked as classified.
Uhhh, she doesn’t recall anything about it.
These misdirections are all slightly plausible, although non-responsive (that is, not responses to the important question).
But this “transparency” thing is a total fabrication. Very odd.
She is transparent.
Yet I don’t think the message she is providing is the one that she thinks she is giving.
Guess what Crooked? The voters don’t agree with you!
“American likely voters say 54 – 37 percent that Trump is more transparent than Clinton.”
I know, I know It’s just a very weird election.
