Brian Williams has been all over the news lately. And while he’s getting the shaming he deserves, don’t think for a second that there aren’t thousands of other people out there selling you lies every single day.
And I want to make sure you don’t lose sight of another liar who thinks she can use the heroism of our nation’s armed forces to promote herself as the next commander in chief.
“I certainly do remember that trip to Bosnia, and as Togo said, it was a saying around the White House that if a place was too small, too poor or too dangerous, the President couldn’t go so send the First Lady. And, that’s where we went. And I remember landing under sniper fire, there was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base. But it was a moment of great pride for me.”
So Hillary claims she dodged sniper fire to get to her car. Below is the video of what really happened, and in the footage I’m not sure I see any sniper fire.
“That’s Senator Clinton talking to me on the military flight into Tuzla, and these are the pictures we recorded of the greeting ceremony when the plane landed.”
From the footage, I’m not sure I see any sniper fire. And what makes this truly disgusting to me is that when she was called on it, she dismissed it as if it was no big deal. Only someone completely arrogant, ignorant and disrespectful of what really happens in war could say something like that — and all to get people to like you more.
I’ve seen sniper fire and there’s nothing casual, nothing small and nothing ordinary about fighting for your life on the battlefield.
There is an undeniable feeling that we all get when we learn of the selfless stories being told about the men and women who have sacrificed everything on the battlefield for our freedom. Those stories humble us, and they inspire us to wake up every single day and accomplish even more.
Hillary was willing to lie in order to take advantage of that feeling of gratitude and awe Americans have for those who serve: ‘Oh, I was under sniper fire, and I know what it feels like to be in war.’ When she was called out for lying in that speech, she tried to make excuses saying she misspoke or her memory was hazy and she’s only human.
