Krauthammer: Clinton Only Referred To Orlando Attack As Radical Islam Because She’s ‘Completely Cynical’ And Sanders Is Out

On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” columnist Charles Krauthammer stated that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton only referred to the terrorist attack on the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida as Islamic terrorist because she’s “completely cynical” and has “no principles.”

Krauthammer said that Clinton opted to refer to the terrorist attack as a radical Islamic attack because there is “No [Sen.] Bernie Sanders (I-VT). the campaign is over. She doesn’t have to appeal to her left, so all of a sudden she discovers the term, which is the reason I really like completely cynical liberals who have no principles. They will occasionally get it right. With a principled liberal, they’ll get it wrong every time. but with Hillary, as soon as it is now convenient, she will continue to say ‘radical Islam,’ which is a good thing. And one reason it’s a good thing is what you guys were discussing about the attack on the gay bar. The fact is, that unless you say what kind of extremism it is, you don’t understand any connections. That’s what makes Obama’s refusal so incomprehensible and unnerving. He knows there’s a connection. When you say ‘radical Islam,’ you are encompassing all of the elements of it, of which one is, a radical opposition and hatred of gays.”
