Theoretically, it should be possible to keep up with Hillary Clinton’s lies. She has given so few press conferences and interviews, we don’t have a lot of material to work over. Yet Clinton achieves something like perfect falsity when she speaks; she fails to utter a true word. She is a phenomenon. A capable Republican candidate should be able to reckon with the phenomenon, but a phenomenon she is.
“Hillary Clinton’s lies” is the blunt heading that Noah Rothman places over his Commentary post addressing Clinton’s mind-blowing CNN interview this week. I wrote briefly about Clinton’s CNN interview in “Hillary’s Hellman factor.” Rothman patiently explores the falsity of Clinton’s blizzard of lies and makes a valuable contribution. Attention should be paid.
I may be mistaken, but I think Rothman errs in his conclusion: “At some point, the political press has to tire of being used and underestimated by Hillary Clinton. Until that time, she will continue to flagrantly mislead the press and the public, making a mockery of the journalistic profession in the process.” The political press will not tire of being lied to by Madam Hillary and Clinton will continue the practice that Rothman explores. In both cases character is destiny.
