It’s Just A LITTLE White Lie: Surprisingly CNN is stepping up and pointing out that Hillary is a LIAR. That’s something most of us, who are on the right side of the constitutional line, already know, but now, even some of the left leaning “news” outlets are throwing stones at their queen.
While it is feasible to speculate that at least a few of the GOP candidates will be touting their own family history, as immigrants in search of the American Dream, however, Hillary Clinton does not have that advantage. She’s not letting that stop her.
At a recent campaign stop, in Norwalk, Iowa, Clinton inferred to the group, in which she was talking immigration, that she had several grandparents who were immigrants to the U.S., when, in fact, she only has one immigrant ancestor.
“all my grandparents, you know, came over here.”
A Clinton campaign spokesperson spins:
“Her grandparents always spoke about the immigrant experience and, as a result she has always thought of them as immigrants,” a Clinton campaign spokesperson said on Thursday. “As has been correctly pointed out, while her grandfather was an immigrant, it appears that Hillary’s grandmother was born shortly after her parents and siblings arrived in the U.S. in the early 1880s.”
Perhaps if Elizabeth Warren gets into the race we’ll hear more about her native American heritage, or perhaps it’s just indicative of the Democrat playbook. Or maybe they think family trees are fluid, living breathing things like the Constitution.
It makes for good campaign mud slinging and the GOP intends to use it:
Republicans have already jumped on Clinton’s story in Iowa about her grandparents. A Republican aide said the Republican National Committee plans to go after her on it.
Sean Spicer, the RNC communications director, already tweeted about this story. “Dust off ur Bill Clinton dictionary,” he said, hinting at the former president’s “It depends upon what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is” statement during the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
Clinton’s family history has been a regular aspect of the former secretary of state’s remarks on the paid speaking circuit. She usually mentions her mother as her inspiration, nothing that Della Howell and Edwin Howell were not attentive parents and shipped their children off to relatives in California at a young age.
