Someone should tell Democrats Hillary Rodham Clinton and Sen. Elizabeth Warren to think through what they’re saying about double standards and rigged systems because so far this week, all they have really done is make the case for their critics.
Sunday night during the CBS “60 Minutes” interview with Scott Pelley, Clinton did herself no favors when she spouted, “I often feel like there’s the Hillary standard, and then there’s the standard for everybody else.”
Probably not the brightest thing she could have said ten days after the FBI Director recommended no charges in relation to Clinton’s email scandal, and Attorney General Loretta Lynch concurred. This was several days after Lynch met on the tarmac in Phoenix with former President Bill Clinton for a private confab that, the public was assured, involved only chit chat about family and golf and other innocuous subjects.
At the time, 56 percent of American adults disapproved of the FBI’s decision, according to a Washington Post/ABC News poll. Only 35 percent agreed that Clinton should not have been charged.
Warren, during her comments Monday evening to DNC delegates, unintentionally affirmed that the “system is rigged,” only 24 hours after Bernie Sanders delegates learned they’d been hosed by DNC officials helping Clinton. While Warren was attempting to take a cheap shot at GOP nominee Donald Trump, what she said could be devastating when people have a chance to reflect on the words, considering Hillary Clinton’s situation.
She said, according to Yahoo News, that the system is rigged against people who aren’t wealthy. That has a sour note for anyone who knows about Clinton’s net worth.
Depending upon which network one follows, this morning people either heard that the Democrats’ convention in Philadelphia is smoothing out after yesterday’s protests, or the DNC is in chaos. Today may be more telling as delegates vote. However, a new Rasmussen survey shows that 78 percent of Democrats think members of their party will ultimately fall in line behind Clinton and vote for her.
