According to Democrat presidential contender Hillary Clinton, she has led quite the romantic life; one filled with drama, danger, romance, struggle and intrigue. She is, after all, the granddaughter of immigrants, and yet she has achieved so much. She left the White House in January of 2001 dead broke, and yet went on to amass a $100 million fortune. And as First Lady, in the country of Tuzla, she braved and dodged sniper fire.
Though it all Hillary is proud to announce that, “I don’t feel no ways tired.”
Of, course Hillary was lying… Lying about being broke. Lying about dodging sniper fire. And now we know she was lying about the romantic stories she has oft-told about her immigrant grandparents. According to BuzzFeed, Ms. Clinton told this immigrant lie as recently as yesterday in Iowa.
“All my grandparents, you know, came over here and you know my grandfather went to work in lace mill in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and worked there until he retired at 65. He started there when he was a teenager and just kept going,” Clinton said.
Except that this story….
… conflicts with public census and other records related to her maternal and paternal grandparents.
The story of her grandmother specifically immigrating is one Clinton has told before. Clinton’s sole foreign-born grandparent, Hugh Rodham Sr., immigrated as a child.
How does a serial-fabricator intend to be taken seriously on the world stage? Why would anyone trust her?
And how many lies does Hillary get to tell before the media stops chasing her van like groupies and starts demanding she answer questions?
I guess it depends on what the meaning of “sniper fire” is.
