By The Daily Caller. Hillary Clinton gave a talk at Rutgers University Thursday and at one point the moderator invoked Nazism when talking about what “could happen” in America.
Clinton’s response may leave your head scratching.
The moderator said, “As someone who grew up in Vienna and barely escaped the Holocaust, my mother would say from time to time that it could happen here. And, I was–I would be very dismissive of that. I would dismiss it and I would dismiss her comments and her fears as implausible.”
“I now find–it’s shocking I’m even about to ask this question–but, I do want you to talk about, what are your concerns about the stability of our democratic institutions and structures in these tumultuous moments? And what for you is the essence of American democracy?”
Hillary’s long-winded response to the invocation of Nazism in comparison to America touched on a number of things, including the “absolutely essential role of the press.”
“Well, I am fundamentally optimistic and hopeful, but I don’t think that optimism and hope is warranted unless we do what we’re supposed to do as citizens,” Clinton said. “And so, I worry about the degradation of institutions, the dismissing of norms and values–because remember, a democracy is fundamentally held together by trust.” (Read more from “WATCH: Moderator Invokes Nazism When Talking About America — Hillary Has BIZARRE Response” HERE)
Clinton Calls 2016 Election ‘Traumatic,’ Admits She’d Like to ‘Take Back’ Some Things She Said
By Fox News. Almost a year and a half since losing her bid for president, former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton still is talking about election woes, calling it a “traumatic” experience.
Speaking at Rutgers University Thursday, Clinton spoke primarily about being a woman in politics — and being targeted as a result, the problem Republicans face as a disjointed unit, the upcoming elections and her hopes that the recent events under the Trump administration would motivate people enough to vote for change.
When asked about being told to get off the public stage and “shut up,” Clinton said she was “struck” by the fact that “they never said that to any man,” citing unsourced research from “one of the young people” on her staff.
Clinton also mentioned being called “shrill” by the media, which she said never commented on her opponent’s habit of “finger waving.”
“It’s about time that women were allowed to be themselves the way men are allowed to be themselves,” she said. (Read more from “Clinton Calls 2016 Election ‘Traumatic,’ Admits She’d Like to ‘Take Back’ Some Things She Said” HERE)
