What do you think is the most important issue of this election? Islamic terror? Immigration? Health care? The national debt? The economy?
If you’re Hillary Clinton, the answer is “none of the above.” To her, the revelations from the hacked documents that Wikileaks has released isn’t a problem to her – it’s that hacking occurred in the first place. As Breitbart reported: In response to a question about her “open border” immigration “dream,” former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pivoted to declare the most important question of the third and final presidential debate: when will Donald Trump condemn Russia about its alleged involvement in the recent Wikileaks email release?
Hillary seems to be under the impression that facts cease to be facts once uncovered by Russia (or anyone for that matter).
Debate moderator Chris Wallace began his question, “Secretary Clinton, I want to clear up your position on this issue [of border security] because in a speech you gave to a Brazilian bank – for which you were paid $225,000 – we’ve learned from the Wikileaks that you said this and I want to quote, ‘my dream is a hemispheric common market with open trade and open borders.”
“So that’s the question: is that your dream, open borders?” he asked.
While Clinton first responded that the quote was taken out of context — arguing she was talking about energy, not immigration — she further shifted the conversation, pivoting to Russia and Vladimir Putin.
“You are very clearly quoting from Wikileaks and what’s really important about Wikileaks is that the Russian government has engaged in espionage against Americans.”
“I actually think the most important question of this evening, Chris, is finally will Donald Trump admit and condemn that the Russians are doing this and make it clear that he will not have the help of Putin in this election, that he rejects Russian espionage against Americans which he actually encouraged in the past?”
“Those are the questions we need answered,” Clinton added.
This is what she thinks is the great issue of this election? That it’s somehow the responsibility of Donald Trump to condemn Russia for exposing her? Isn’t the bigger question whether or not a President Hillary would start a war with Russia for unproven claims they’re responsible for the recent hacks that Wikileaks has been dumping?
For all the grief she gives Trump over his temperament, hers could sure use some work.
