"You better put some ice on that."
“She created this mess and she knows it.”
~ Huma Abedin - unsurprisingly, the media is even less honest and forthcoming about Clinton's corruption than even her closest advisor and biggest yes man.
"The chief complaint that critics make about the Clinton Foundation is that the former and perhaps future presidents engaged in a “pay-to-play” scheme, whereby donors—many of them foreign governments—would contribute money to the charity in exchange for access to Bill or Hillary Clinton, or worse, beneficial treatment from the State Department. [emphasis mine]
On Thursday, hacked emails from WikiLeaks show that is precisely what happened when the king of Morocco agreed to host a Clinton Global Initiative summit and give $12 million, but only if Hillary Clinton attended the May 2015 meeting."
Want to hang out with Billary? It's easy! Just pony up millions, and park it where they tell you. Because they're all about the Little Guy. Really.
Cue the apologists...

To be clear: I don't want anyone to mistake my loathing of Trump as support for Hillary. She's just as reprehensible, and I won't be casting my vote for either of these snakes.
"Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported."

“Fracking was developed at the Department of Energy. I mean, the whole idea of how fracking came to be available in the marketplace is because of research done by our government. And I've promoted fracking in other places around the world.”
“The ability to extract both gas and oil from previously used places that didn't seem to have much more to offer, but now the technology gives us the chance to go in and recover oil and gas,Or with the new technology known as fracking, we are truly on a path -- and it's not just United States; it's all of North America -- that will be net energy exporters..."
~ Hillary Clinton, anti-fracking activist and corporate watchdog, stroking one of her corporate donors, Deutsche Bank, 3 years ago.
And you thought Trump was duplicitous and two faced? Of course he is! But the Hillary has always been a major-leaguer in that arena.
They're both reprehensible. Trump may be the worst major party candidate in history. For those voting Trump because they can't bear the thought of the Malignant Cow, I get it and don't condemn you for it. For my part, I have abandoned the lesser of two evils calculus. I am unwilling to be complicit in evil; I have to go with my conscience.
“I’m not going to add a penny to the debt.” ~ Lyin' Hillary, last night
Even if she could enact Bernie-style socialism with a 90% percent top marginal rate & went all Hugo Chavez on the corporations, there's no way in hell she wouldn't add to the debt. If she did nothing (a boy can dream), she'd still grow the debt. Even these clowns, who've accepted her economic plan on its face, found the debt rising to $23 billion. The apologists among us will sing its praises and disregard the fundamental dishonesty regardless. Integrity goes out the window when there's a hack to shill for.
Trump had demonstrated, not only during the campaign, but throughout his entire adult life, that he is thin skinned and vindictive. His knee jerk reaction to anyone who gets in his way is to attack and destroy. President Trump would have the power of the state behind him. I see no reason to believe that he'd be at least as bad, if not worse, than Hillary. He's a banana republic dictator wannabe. But it's a moot point, since he's going down in flames next month, barring some anti-Hill octosurprise.
