I love when Hillary gets what’s coming to her.
Bernie Sanders made a pretty innocuous request yesterday, one that is pretty common among competitors in any U.S. presidential election or primary cycle. He asked Hillary Clinton to release her speech transcripts. No biggie right? Most of those speech transcripts are short hand anyway as reading a speech in full is a daunting task, given how long each and every speech is.
Well, in true Hillary fashion, she refused to release them, adding to her stigma as a guarded, introverted, say anything, lying, secret-keeping shrew.
Hillary Clinton refused to release transcripts of speeches she gave to major Wall Street firms such as Goldman Sachs, drawing boos in her Thursday night debate with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in Brooklyn, New York.
CNN moderator Dana Bash held Clinton’s feet to the fire as the Democratic frontrunner fumbled and Bernie Sanders scored a major swipe back at her.
Clinton’s First Explanation: Bernie Voted for De-Regulation
“First of all there isn’t an issue. When I was in public service serving as the senator from New York … I did not vote to de-regulate swaps and derivatives as Senator Sanders did … I’m not saying Senator Sanders did something un-toward when he voted to de-regulate swaps and derivatives but…”
Clinton’s Second Explanation: Where Are Bernie’s Tax Returns?
“There are certain expectations when you run for president … there are speeches on the other side,” Clinton said, before turning to the topic of Bernie Sanders’ tax returns.
“You can go to my website and see eight years of tax returns,” Clinton boasted.
But Bash said that there are “many Democratic voters who want to see” Clinton’s speech transcripts.
Clinton’s Third Explanation: Change the Rules
“Let’s set the same standard for everybody,” Clinton said. “I’ll do it when everybody does it.”
But my question is, why wouldn’t you do this? What could you POSSIBLY be keeping from the public, in a speech transcript, THAT YOU SPOKE TO THE PUBLIC ABOUT! It just further proves the point that if Hillary were elected president, she would do anything and everything to kepe every secret she has locked up and continue to deceive the American people forever.
That’s not a leader, that’s a coward. We already have one of those in office currently, we don’t need another to follow suit.
