Donald Trump can do serious damage to Hillary Clinton’s reputation by simply speaking the truth. These are truths Bernie has avoided bringing up. The Bern Report has touched on a number of issues, but has avoided some topics, such as the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky scandal. By bringing up these issues in front of major media news cameras, Mr. Trump can destroy Mrs. Clinton .
On Monica Lewinsky, Donald Trump did not hesitate to call Bill Clinton a sexist, an abuser of women, and a liar, and quoting him using the now infamous phrase,
“I did not have sexual relations with that woman.”
Hillary Clinton has all kinds of baggage no one has brought up recently, because the focus has been on her “professional” behavior, and most in the news have avoided bringing up “personal” issues. While the Bern Report has described a number of Hillary Clinton’s unethical and questionably legal behaviors (such as her Wall Street dealings, donations to the Clinton Foundation in exchange for fighter jets, and abuse and manipulation of DNC and Super PACs) we have avoided stories about her personal behaviors, unless it related directly to the Presidential campaign.
At the risk of focusing on Mrs. Clinton’s personal life, there is the Monica Lewinsky story, which does not make her look like a strong independent woman, but a politician willing to live in a false marriage to further her political career. This makes her seem shallow and focused only on power and money. Her work with the Clinton Foundation women’s rights does not counter this image, because that has become a giant, nontaxable slush fund.
Trump and his campaigners no doubt have a running list of everything she’s been involved with and while there are plenty of things like the rumor of her dead lover. In a book written by Christopher Andersen, and titled “Bill and Hillary: The Marriage” claims Vince Foster and Hillary Clinton were involved in an affair that led to Foster’s death. Foster committed suicide with a gun. But Trump doesn’t need to go there because there’s enough ammunition with easily verifiable stories.
Trump could dig up the story about Berta Cáceres, the indigenous environmental activist from Honduras who was assassinated after singling out Clinton for her role in the coup that lead to even more unrest in that country. In Clinton’s book “Hard Choices” she almost brags about backing the coup. Cáceres wasn’t the only casualty though, there have been hundreds of activists killed.
Both The Bern Report and major media news have avoided reporting on the email fiasco and the Benghazi disaster. The Bern Report avoided these because it seemed more Republican exaggeration than objective analysis. Trump will grab these glaring examples of poor judgement and show what a poor decision-maker she really is.
If you’ve been a fan of this site for any length of time you probably know that we feel there is not “Lesser of two evils” when it comes either Clinton or Trump, in our opinion either one of those two will very likely do irreparable harm to not only our country but the planet as a whole.
Donald Trump can shred Hillary Clinton with the truth.
