“So get over it.”
—Hillary Clinton, explaining why Joe Biden’s serial unconsented-to touching, hugging, sniffing, and other discriminatory, harassing conduct toward women he encounters in the course of his professional activities shouldn’t matter to the “Party of Women” and the voting public generally.
This was prefaced by her saying , in response to a question about Biden’s #MeToo defying behavior,
“For goodness’ sake, I’m sorry, I have to jump in because I’ve heard a little bit about that. You could take any person who sticks their little head above the parapet and says, ‘I’m going to run for president,’ and find something that … a little annoying habit or other kind of behavior that people are going to pick apart and disagree with. But this man who’s there in the Oval Office right now poses a clear and present danger to the future of the United States. So get over it.”
The only remaining question, after that self-indicting outburst, is whether only Hillary Clinton among the Democratic leadership is a cynical, dishonest hypocrite who has no reliable core values or integrity, and whose utterances to the contrary are to be regarded as Machiavellian calculations to achieve power and nothing more.
The evidence suggests that she is not alone, but also that she is a bad as the rest of them could be.
To just scratch the surface of this damning admission, that the current President “poses a clear and present danger to the future of the United States” is an opinion at best, and one that is remarkably without supporting documentation. That Joe Biden regards women who come within his curtilage to be tactilely exciting play-thing’s whose dignity, personal space and feelings don’t matter is a matter of photographic record. And that that exact conduct Biden engages in is the conduct that an entire feminist and social movement, supposedly backed by the Democratic Party, has tirelessly lectured men and the American public was intolerable in the workplace, and mandated permanent removal from positions of power, and societal shunning.
That anyone of good will and whole cerebrum could honestly conclude that this scheming, dishonest woman was and is in any way more admirable, trustworthy, or worthy of holding great power than Donald Trump is mind-boggling. She’s just as ethically-inert as he is; she’s just more sneaky about it. She’s not even a feminist; she just pretends to be one when it’s opportunistic.
My increasingly disillusioned Democratic sister typically responds, when i alert her to Hillary statements like this, “Oh, who cares? She’s irrelevant. She’s pathetic…what she says doesn’t matter now, any more than tweets from dead-head celebrities.” Yet a majority of people we both know were all set to vote for this awful woman to be President of the United States, and accepted the mythology and media narrative that she was qualified for the job. A major political party made such a woman its standard bearer, and with almost every utterance and action since, she has provided more evidence that it was all a massive fraud.
I’m not going to argue that Donald Trump is a more trustworthy and admirable character than Hillary Clinton. I will argue that anyone who wanted this woman to run the country has nothing to contribute to debates over his “fitness to serve.”
