Upon losing the 2016 presidential election in devastating fashion, Hillary Clinton and her team have found a whole host of boogeymen out there to point fingers at for her performance.
One such excuse has been the much heralded “fake news” epidemic the mainstream media has concocted.
Clinton warned about the need to “stand up for our democracy” and combat “the threat of fake news” flooding the internet during a post-election speech.
“It’s now clear that so-called fake news can have real world consequences,” she whined.
Well, if it’s fake news she wanted, it’s fake news we’ll give her. It’s just that most of it will involve her own words, as Hillary is a known perpetual champion of misinformation.
Via Conservative Tribune:
Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who in 2012 propagated a fallacious narrative about the Benghazi terror attack having been inspired by an anti-Islamic video, has a problem with fake news.
“It’s now clear that so-called fake news can have real-world consequences,” she proclaimed during a speech Thursday on Capitol Hill, according to Fox News, displaying nary a shred of self-awareness.
Cue laughter in three, two, one …
Or better yet, cue political commentator Rush Limbaugh, whose team pieced together a brief montage of the many times the former secretary of state has lied through her teeth, starting with the lie she told in 1998, when she referenced the rise of a “vast right-wing conspiracy,” as reported at the time by The Washington Post.
Take a listen to the montage below …
A devastating indictment on Hillary’s willingness to spread actual “fake news.”
You’ll notice that several of the lies mentioned by Rush appeared in our list of the 7 Wildest Lies Told By Hillary Clinton; from being named after Sir Edmund Hillary, to dodging sniper fire, to trying to join the Marines and of course one of the most glaring examples of fake news – the ‘YouTube video caused Benghazi’ lie.
If the media were to start a ‘fake news’ network (aside from those already out there), Hillary Clinton would have to be the lead anchor.
