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.DONATE
