It isn’t “don’t you find being so perfect and awesome a dreadful burden?” but it is damned close.
In the same interview where Hillary Clinton accused, and I’m not making this up, Donald Trump of treason a Bloomberg reporter, Jennifer Epstein, served up an outrageous softball question for Clinton.
JENNIFER EPSTEIN: Are you concerned that this weekend’s attacks, or potential incidents in the coming weeks, might be an attempt by ISIS or ISIS sympathizers or, really, any other group, maybe the Russians, to influence the presidential race in some way? And presumably try to drive votes to Donald Trump who, as you said before, widely seen as perhaps being somebody who they would be more willing to — or see as an easier person to be against?
CLINTON: Well, Jennifer, I don’t want to speculate but here’s what we know. And I think it’s important for voters to hear this and weigh it in making their choice in November. We know that a lot of the rhetoric we’ve heard Donald Trump has been seized on by terrorists, in particular ISIS.
Incredibly, Clinton does bat this down, which leads one to believe it was a planted question. Rather, she says, voters should actually consider if there was Russian involvement or if the attack was an attempt to throw the election to Trump. This is freakin lunacy of the tinfoil hat variety.
If you weren’t watching the interview and just reading this bit of the transcript you’d be forgiven for thinking that the reporter was engaging in a bit of trolling and political theater at the expense of a sick, feeble and embittered old bat. But the whole interview indicates that Epstein has not only drank the Flavor-Aid but she’s licked the dregs from the bottom of the bowl. How does a presumably lucid person begin to tie the Russians to the Chelsea bomber. And given the fact that ISIS sees Trump as someone who will stand in their way, hence his role as a villain to them, why would they want him to win and not a soft, incompetent Hillary Clinton whose closest adviser is a Muslim with family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood?
