ROMMNEY WORDSWORTH – It is Wednesday, September 14, 2016, and you know what that means: It’s Trumpday! Let’s get started. Bill Clinton’s CIA Director, James Woolsey, joined the ranks of ex-Clintonistas that are jumping on the Trump Train. For his part, Woolsey basically said by way of explanation that Hillary Clinton is unfit for office:
“Trump has come out on two things that I think are important: First of all, he seems to be very much more so than his opponent in favor of a strong defense budget and we’ve got a lot of space to make up problems that have been left in defense by the Obama administration,” Woolsey said while explaining why he supports Trump over Clinton.
“The other is that he seems willing to keep a secret and not to blab everything to the public and to our opponents when he comes up with something about national security that ought to be kept quiet. I think that’s good. You can’t go yakking about everything that you’re interested in, you have to keep your counsel.”
But the money quote is this one by Woolsey: “As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton demonstrated a complete lack of understanding and an inability to lead the agency she headed in such a way as to maintain its mission and security.”
The latest LA Times daily tracking poll, taken between August 26th to September 12th, shows Donald Trump leading Hillary Clinton nationally by 3 points, 46% to 43%. This is the only poll so far that includes a sample period that includes Hillary’s 9/11 collapse.
Campaigning in Asheville, South Carolina, Donald Trump continued to lash out at Hillary’s gaffe where she referred to half of Trump voters as “a basket of deplorables”.
“You know to just be grossly generalist, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables…the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it,” Clinton stated.
This is imperious language one could more easily imagine George III using against the unruly colonies. But this is how the Left talks about America today, and Hillary Clinton is nothing if not a woman of the Left. It is of a piece with the Left’s current crusade to divide the country by socially ostracizing and delegitimizing conservative beliefs.
Trump has retorted: “Hillary Clinton has such a low opinion of America. Hillary looks upon proud Americans as her subjects to rule over.”
He’s right on the money!
