Clinton's Pre-Debate Video: Trump's a Liar, You Know

A web ad like this was inevitable, given the media's totally coincidental, not-at-all-coordinated pile-on over Donald Trump's long rap sheet of dishonesty. Let's be clear: Trump does lie effortlessly and frequently about issues large and small. For instance, here's the latest confirmation of a big fib he told months ago. Recent stories in the New York Times and the Washington Post are packed with (very recent) examples that further fortify the underlying premise of this critique.  It should also be noted that both pieces were published in close proximity to each paper's editorial board declaring Trump unfit for the presidency. And with comedians pounding away to the "false equivalence" drumbeat, we have ourselves and Official Narrative. Hence this online spot from America's least-trusted woman:

Yes, Trump does a lot of lying.  So does she.  Here's my stab at explaining the difference:  He's a practiced BS artist, serving up an endless flurry distortions, embellishments and outright falsehoods -- often for self-aggrandizement, or to emphasize a point.  Accuracy and truthfulness are afterthoughts, at best.  But there's a reason why Hillary Clinton scores worse on honesty in many polls:  Her form of habitual lying is cold, calculated and self-interested.  And it's often designed to obfuscate and muddy the waters on weighty matters, such as her conduct in connection with her impropernational security-endangering email scandal.  She and her team are still  lying about that.  America Rising's new video compilation reminds us that her reputation isn't an accident:

On America's Newsroom this morning, I emphasized one of Hillary's biggest problems: Hillary Clinton and her campaign have devoted huge resources over the past seven weeks trying to 'toxify' Donald Trump as a totally unacceptable choice for president.  Over that stretch, national and battleground polls have trended away from her.  She's squandered a commanding-looking post-DNC lead, amplifying attack after attack, to which voters seem to have grown inured:

Parting thought: Should his first bullet point also be hers?
