Did you watch Hillary Clinton’s testimony before the House Select Committee on Benghazi? If you did you should get a colonoscopy soon, because in those 11 hours you had enough smoke blown up there to give colon cancer to everyone in the country.
If we had an honest media, the headlines Friday would have been about how the former secretary of state and current Democratic Party front-runner for president was caught lying to the American public about the cause of the Benghazi attack. Headlines would scream of how Hillary Clinton said one thing in private – to her daughter, the leaders of Libya and Egypt – and the exact opposite to the American people.
There was a time when knowingly and willfully telling someone the reverse of what is true was called a lie. Now it’s considered a creative interpretation. Hillary knew while the attack was ongoing, and told her daughter Chelsea in an email, that the terrorist attack on the US compound in Benghazi was “by an Al Queda-like (sic) group.” Does Chelsea have special security clearance allowing her to receive real-time briefings on ongoing terrorist attacks on Americans? Are security clearances transmitted via DNA? Of course not.
Hillary Clinton doesn’t want to lie to her own child. Everyone else? Sure, why not? Everyone else is disposable the moment they outlive their usefulness.
Even those who are still useful, still trying desperately to remain in the good graces of our would-be queen, tread so lightly as to be ready for humiliation at her whim.
Lanny Davis is a nice man. I know and like him. So it is with no great pleasure I write this. But his email to Hillary, a woman he’s known longer than I’ve been alive, assumes they are friends. But that relationship is not something I recognize as friendship, and I hope you don’t either.
In 2010, Lanny begged his decades-long friend, a woman for whom he’s thrown himself on countless grenades, for the simple favor of a few minutes of her time to say nice things to a reporter writing a Davis profile. In a long, embarrassing email, Davis asks for “a personal favor” from his “dear friend Hillary.”
I can’t bring myself to quote it, so take a moment and read it for yourself. Just know, after decades of loyalty and a willingness to publicly humiliate himself to protect her and her family, Hillary did not comply with Lanny’s basic favor.
That’s who Hillary Clinton is as a person.
