Speaking Of Hillary...

Just saying...

What exactly was the reason some said they just couldnt, just couldnt?

4. She beat him, fair and square, by 3 million votes. He "won" by cheating

All his trash talking didn't work. Hillary beat him anyway. She humiliated him publicly just as Obama did at the WHCD. And tRUMP HATES that worse then anything. He seeks revenge, always.

2. And she only exaggerated about that helicopter ride because of the double standard.

As a woman with no military experience for some fucking reason she was expected to express her going in to danger, like that was a freaking virtue.

She could have just expressed anxiety about the volatile region but shown bravery by being there at all

But making up 'sniper fire' was dumb

And yet we're still talking about it.

She also very quickly retracted it when asked about it.

Meanwhile people who were there said that the pilots did make them get down but there was never any actual live fire it was just a precaution. Her memory of the incident over a decade later could have easily told her she was shot at.

It is unbelievable to me how people still harp on about it, some 20 years later. It is Dijon mustard level stupid.

active fire, then she was technically correct. They weren't shooting at her person directly, but there was "sniper fire." Who even knows what the military leaders told her, maybe she picked up something they said. It has to be a pretty big deal to have a FLOTUS visit.

11. Something that was just so... so... so... important at the time.

People were convinced she was dreaming about the children she was going to drone, and was plotting which parts of government she was going to hand over to the oligharchy/Wall Street/Henry Kissinger/the militaryindustrial complex.... anyone but qualified progressives. We were gonna have to constantly "hold her feet to the fire" or she and the "establishment Dems" would hand over the Democratic Party into the party of the 1% within minutes.

Like Susan Sarandon said - we'd be in a nuclear WAR right now!

Oh, and "that laugh." It was gonna be like your MOM being in charge of the country - totally emasculating to men!

Thank God we dodged THAT bullet.
