Here we go… bring on the haters…
Let’s start with the facts. Hillary has been First Lady, New York Senator, Secretary of State, and presidential candidate.
All prestigious and respected positions
And what has she accomplished in those positions? While a Senator, she cosponsored 31 pieces of legislation, 33 Senate resolutions, and 21 concurrent resolutions. Fourteen resolutions were passed and three laws came into effect with her name on them.
But, during those eight years in the NY Senate, Clinton missed roll call nearly one in 10 times. Her 9.5% is significantly higher than the 2% median of the Senate. Those stats may not look to bad, but if you missed work one out of every 10 days you were supposed to be there, chances are you wouldn’t have a job.
As Secretary of State, she really didn’t do much in the whole scheme of things. There were no major diplomatic breakthroughs during her time as Secretary and the big international issues (Iran, North Korea, etc) that were there at the start of her tenure, where still there at the end of it, too.
But doing a shitty job at work doesn’t make you a terrible person, so let’s move on.
Beyond getting a government paycheck for 13 years for not doing much, Hillary has a whole list of deplorable actions and scandals.
There’s the whole private server thing.
The missing emails.
Lying to Congress.
The Clinton Foundation and its constant conflicts of interest and pay-to-play fiascos.
There’s blatant special treatment (everyone remembers Huma Abedin).
And that’s not even taking into consideration the other drama and conspiracies that surround the Clinton name (Travelgate, Troopergate, and on and on).
And then there’s the fact that she’s untrustworthy and completely stuck up. Don’t believe me? Watch Hillary in action. She talks down to people. She constantly smirks, likes she’s just knows she’s so much smarter than everyone else out there, especially those of us in Middle America, who are working our asses off to make ends meets, provide for our families, and pay the very taxes that make up her paycheck.
You’d think she’d appreciate us blue-collar workers, the backbone of America, but nawh, she thinks we’re losers. And, because she has no couth, she has absolutely no trouble saying it either.
And then, to top it all off, the woman is hypocritical af. Just this week, she denied that her husband engaged in abuse of power when he had sexual relations with his intern.
Now, I’m not a fan of #metoo and #believewomen, but I know abuse of power when I see it. Anytime a boss, man or woman, engages in sexual activity with a subordinate, it’s abuse of power. No question asked. It’s in every management 101 sexual harassment training I’ve ever taken, and I’ve taken my fair share.
So when the president of the fucking country screws around with a 22-year old intern, um… yeah. Power abuse.
So… Is Hillary Clinton the worst person to walk to the planet? No, she’s not. There were worse. Attila the Hun. Genghis Khan. Nero.
But Hillary still gets lots of praise, especially from brainless women who think she would be a good candidate because she`s a woman, and when I hear people talk about what a good person she is, what a good woman, it makes me cringe.
She is not a good person. And, in mho, she’s rather terrible. Make that deplorable.
But that’s just my .02.
