200 Reasons Why Hillary Clinton Should Not Be President

According to many political commentators, there is simply no contest between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. While Clinton may be a flawed candidate, Donald Trump is, on the other hand, “manifestly unfit.” They bolster these claims with listicles of hundreds of supposedly disqualifying things that Trump has said or done throughout his time in public life. Keith Olbermann narrated a list of 176, the Clinton campaign came up with 126, and Slate compiled a list of 191. If you can name a hundred-odd reasons against Trump but only the email scandal and Benghazi against Clinton, then it would seem, mathematically speaking, that Clinton is by far the lesser of two evils.


But this is simply untrue. Not only has Clinton made an equal, if not greater number of errors, her errors are often magnitudes worse than anything Trump has ever said or tweeted.

Compare, for instance, their worst attempts at outreach to Hispanic communities. On Cinco de Mayo, Trump tweeted a picture of himself eating a taco bowl with the caption “I love Hispanics!” Slate, Olbermann, and the Clinton campaign all listed this as a disqualifying offense. How much more disqualifying, then, is Clinton’s involvement in the FALN clemency controversy? When Hillary Clinton was running for senator of New York, she received word that she could win over “strategic communities” if her husband offered clemency to a group of Puerto Rican nationalists imprisoned for terrorism. Sure enough, President Clinton commuted the sentences of 16 unrepentant FALN terrorists soon after. Though Hillary Clinton claimed to have had nothing to do with the decision, she supported it until public outcry shamed her into reversing her position. So on the one hand, you have a candidate who tweeted, “I love Hispanics!” and on the other, you have a candidate who supported and likely encouraged the commuted sentences of 16 radical Puerto Rican terrorists in order to win votes. These are not morally equivalent.

Time and again, Trump’s largely media-driven scandals have only underscored how much more profound the implications are for Clinton’s failings. Trump insulted a Gold Star family? Clinton is being sued by two Gold Star families for defamation of character. Trump claims he was against the Iraq War despite saying, “Yeah, I guess so,” on The Howard Stern Show? In 2008, Clinton claimed she was against the Iraq War despite voting for it. Trump wrote negative tweets about 258 people and organizations on Twitter? Clinton derided 40 million Americans as deplorable, irredeemable, and anti-American. The Trump Foundation gave a suspicious donation to a judge? The Clinton Foundation received donations from Saudi Arabia and Boeing as Hillary Clinton was approving a weapons deal of Boeing fighter jets to Saudi Arabia. These jets were used to kill thousands of Yemeni civilians.
