Hillary’s House Of Lies


cjones08032016

I wouldn’t say Hillary Clinton is a liar. But I would say she’s not entirely truthful. She, like her husband, has a penchant for using legalese to get around the truth. Remember the “definition of is” speech? People don’t like lawyers as it is.

When she gave an interview to Chris Wallace and claimed FBI director James Comey said her answers about her emails were “truthful,” I thought to myself, why would she say such a whopper of a lie? This doesn’t help her with the trust issue most Americans have with her, whether that’s valid or not.

But why shouldn’t she lie and get away with it? Donald Trump does it on a daily basis. Seriously, he lies daily. His recent lies include his claim the NFL sent him a letter upset over the debate schedule…which, of course, is a lie.

Hillary just needs to create a new distraction for each flub that’ll redirect the media and public’s attention to the newest scandal. In the midst of Trump’s scandal of his feud with parents whose children died in combat he decided to kick a baby out of one of his rallies. Maybe Hillary could kick a puppy.

What’s kind of a bigger issue about Hillary’s FBI lie is that Trump wasn’t able to capitalize on it. He’s always accusing her of being a liar so when she actually does it, it’s not new for him to claim she’s “crooked Hillary.” Also, Trump and his campaign wasted the week’s message on making excuses for Trump.

Hillary could have dodged the question and it wouldn’t have been news. Shady, like all politicians do, but it wouldn’t have made any waves. Just wait for Donald Trump to log into Twitter and there will be something new.

All Hillary has to do is not lie. She’s the better candidate. She’s qualified for the job and her opponent is a Cheeto. She’s coming off a great convention and has a nine-point-bounce. Trump is fighting parents who lost their children, veteran organizations, fire marshals and babies.

She’s got this. Stop lying.

  1. Timely cartoon, and you’re right, both candidates are pathological liars, unworthy of anyone’s trust. Both have also repeatedly displayed horrendously poor judgment.

    But I must take issue with your “better candidate” conclusion.

    “Experience” and “Wisdom” and “Good Judgment” are mutually exclusive evaluation points on a POTUS candidate’s resume’ sheet.

    But George W. Bush had “experience” and somehow that didn’t help.

    Trump scores zero. Hillary scores one out of three. Yes, of the two losers, she has the higher score, but SERIOUSLY America?

  2. The Right is eager to make any kind of equivalency they can between the two, because if they can depress voter turnout, it always benefits the GOP. The fewer the votes, the better they do. That’s pretty important to them now, as so many of their race-based voter exclusion projects are getting the red light from our 4-4 Supreme Court.

  3. I think that ever since the 30 years ago printed article that remarked; “Hillary is a lying, liar, liar, super duper outrageous liar”, the right wing has been shouting that every time she speaks.
    Politico, among others, has fact checked Hillary and other politicians and concluded that she is the most truthful of all.

    This is not difficult to understand if you imagine being attacked daily by right wing fanatics accusing you of whatever they can cook up to sooth their threatened egotism (I was going to use trump up, but I think you will understand why I didn’t).

    So after years of being assaulted by marginally imaginative conspiracy finger pointing, she has resorted to deflecting the hurled insults and character assassination attempts to avoid becoming embroiled in dozens of energy wasting investigations. According to the checked facts, she has resorted to this deflection technique 20% of the time and actually disagreed with statements she herself has made in the past 4 times. Yep, four lies in 40 years of public service. Ooh…lyin’ Hillary, indeed.

    The same study found that Trump makes up facts and false events to suit his narrative 80% of the time. The media overlooks this behavior because shouting and printing “Crooked Hillary” is so much easier than getting fired by their right wing corporate bosses.

    You have been on a roll for a couple of months now, Mr. Jones. Thanks. I eagerly await your cartoons, and the accompanying descriptive rants.
