Almost a year after the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton is still trying to blame President Trump for her crushing defeat. Now she is pointing her finger at Fox News for an entirely different reason.
Hillary Clinton spoke at a Clinton Foundation event in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Bill Clinton’s 1992 election victory. She started bashing on Fox News and other Conservative networks. She admitted that if Fox News were around when Bill Clinton first ran, he likely wouldn’t have been elected, according to The Daily Caller.
Clinton tried to explain that politics is corrupt, and that its “immune system has been impaired because there has been a concerted effort starting with the creation of the Fox network.”
“It [Fox News] wasn’t there when Bill first ran, it was one of the reasons he probably survived,” Clinton went on to say. Her opinion is clear — Conservative media, had it been more prominent in the 1990’s and had much of it not been silenced by the mainstream media, would have stymied her husband’s presidential run.
She went on to say that Fox and other Conservative news networks are “by no means delivering news.” Clinton went on to say that those stations were taking up a position regardless of facts, the truth, and evidence.
It all sounds very familiar, as many Americans watched Liberal networks broadcast “news” that President Trump overfed Japanese Koi fish during his recent Asia trip. Reporting on stories regardless of facts, truth, and evidence is something liberal news networks have perfected — especially when it comes to stories about our president.
“I think we’ve got to stand up regardless of what party regardless of our own ideological beliefs. A democracy depends on an informed citizenry that has access to accurate information. And I will tell you that there is no such thing as an alternative fact it does not exist in politics or in nature,” Clinton continued, seemingly unaware of the irony.
Hillary Clinton spent the rest of the event taking shots at President Trump for various reasons, including his tweeting habits. She made sure to never mention the president by name — but she didn’t have to for her audience to get the picture.
When she was talking about her husband, Bill Clinton, and his time in office she said, “He didn’t tweet about it, he got to work about it and he actually got it done.” The crowd went wild. It’s obvious that these sheep would have cheered at anything the former first lady said, regardless of how nonsensical or downright untruthful it was.
They seemed to have ignored the fact that Twitter wasn’t invented until 2006, and that the smartphones we have today were something you would find in a sci-fi fantasy novel.
It’s too bad that Clinton couldn’t take some time and reflect how her words illustrate exactly what her party is doing right now. There are two options, either the irony eludes her, or she knows and doesn’t care — both are equally troubling coming from someone who wanted to be President of the United States.
