Ya don’t say.
Hillary has a problem telling the truth. It’s just not something she does. There are a lot of reasons for this, but one of the biggest is that her whole career is predicated on 30 years of lying. Her life story is essentially one gigantic, tangled, web of falsehoods, half-truths, spin, and obfuscation.
The thing is, when you’ve lived that way for so long, you can’t just stop. In order to push forward, you have to keep lying, and every new answer has to square with the previous set of fabrications. That’s a lot to keep straight, so it becomes much easier to simply avoid questions altogether.
…And that’s what Hillary’s been doing.
Tomorrow it will 270 days since Hillary has held a press conference. In that same period of time, Trump has endured 17.
Part of her oh-so-brave “run out the clock” strategy is dodging the media at every possible turn. If they start asking questions, her answers WILL contain lies. That’s problematic given her trust numbers.
Yesterday, someone at MSNBC must have slipped something into the watercooler because anchor Steve Kornacki was feeling his oats. He actually noticed and reported on the fact that Hillary has been cowering since last year.
