Are Republicans right to distance themselves from Trump? And is Trump right to say good riddance to those Republicans?
Trump is the anti-establishment candidate. That vote isn’t represented in the polls. You’re not going to hear most Trump supporters speaking up at work. But they’re going to vote, and they’re voting anti-establishment.
That puts a lot of Republicans in a bind. Running away from Trump means running toward the political establishment of both parties that has lied to Republicans over and over again.
The Sexism Double-Standard
Do you remember Anita Hill? Why was it that Democrat politicians, the media, and feminists freaked out about Clarence Thomas’ word but turned a blind eye Bill Clintons sexual assaults.
Hillary Gets Away with Laughing About Freeing a Child Rapist?
This has a lot to do with the complicity of the media, including so-called “fact checking” websites.
People who like Hillary and are curious enough to look it up might go to Snopes. And they’d find that the claim is rated “mostly false.” How did Snopes arrive at that conclusion?
Part of the claim states that Hillary chose to take the case. Snopes declares that she was obligated to take the case. How do they arrive at that? They just take her at her revisionist word. They cite her own 2003 autobiography.
Compare how Snopes couches it here:
As Hillary Clinton wrote in her 2003 biography Living History, she didn’t volunteer to represent the defendant, but rather was appointed to the case by the judge:
“[Prosecuting attorney Mahlon Gibson] called me to tell me an indigent prisoner accused of raping a twelve-year-old girl wanted a woman lawyer. [Prosecutor Mahlon] Gibson had recommended that the criminal court judge, Maupin Cummings, appoint me. I told Mahlon I really didn’t feel comfortable taking on such a client, but Mahlon gently reminded me that I couldn’t very well refuse the judge’s request.“
And then look at how Hillary described it decades ago shortly after the incident:
“The prosecutor called me a few years ago, he said he had a guy who had been accused of rape, and the guy wanted a woman lawyer,” said Clinton in the interview. “Would I do it as a favor for him?”
Hillary had no such obligation.
