If there's one person in progressive politics who loves to preach to the choir, look no further than former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In a recent interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour, Clinton had the audacity to lecture the Republican Party about upholding ethics...and the Constitution.
Yes, you read that right. Hillary is suddenly an expert on all things ethics. Ironic, right?
Here's how the conversation went:
"When the Republican Senate denied the right of President Obama to have his nominee for the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland, heard –" Hillary said.
"I think you even wrote that they stole a justice from the Democratic Party," Amanpour interrupted.
"I-I think they did," Clinton said. "I mean, to keep a Supreme Court seat open for a year, to deny a distinguished jurist – they could have voted him down, they could have said 'well, for ideological reasons, philosophical reasons, we're not going to vote for him.' But, no. They stonewalled. And that was such a breach of Senate ethics and the Constitutional responsibility of the Senate to advise and consent on nominations."
Is she serious?
Where were Hillary's ethics when she failed to send help to the CIA contractors in Benghazi who were trying to protect Ambassador Chris Stevens from being killed by Ansar al-Sharia?
Was were Hillary's ethics when she lied to the American public and said the attack in Benghazi was a result of some bogus viral video?
Where were Hillary's ethics when she decided to use her own person email accounts instead of the State Department's email?
Where were Hillary's ethics when she decided her own private server was secure enough to handle classified information?
Where were Hillary's ethics when her team scrubbed classification markings from emails?
Oh, that's right. She had none.
But here's the real kicker: she believes it's the GOP's fault that there's violence taking place across America.
"You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. That's why I believe that if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that's when civility can start again," Clinton explained. "Until then, the only thing the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.
Wait... Wasn't Maxine Waters just telling Democrats to harass Republicans?
Wasn't it not too long ago that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was booted from a restaurant in Kentucky?
Or Sen. Ted Cruz's office was sent a white powdery substance?
And then there's also the Republican Senators who were doxxed.
Oh, and let's not forget Sen. Rand Paul's wife who said she's so afraid of liberals that she's sleeping with a loaded gun.
But we're the ones who fail to be civil? We're the ones who want to destroy people's lives and everything they care about?
Seriously, Hillary. You are off your rocker.
Take a long, hard look in the mirror.
Let us know what you find.
