Hillary Clinton is willing to lie about anything, from the serious in how she handled classified information on a private server, to the mundane in how she was named as a child.
She appears to be back at it again, telling another story about how her Dad was a big, bad Republican, and because of that they would get into serious arguments at the dinner table.
Clinton notes she was born in Chicago & her dad was a Repub. "We’d have arguments around the dinner table — every night when I went to HS"

The question is, what exactly were they arguing about? Clinton was a Republican during her youth, canvassing for Richard Nixon, volunteering for Barry Goldwater, and attending the Republican convention in 1968.
Via American Crossroads:
Today, speaking at an event in Chicago, Hillary told a nice little story about how her dad was a Republican and the two would get in arguments at the dinner table when she was in high school.
Of course, the problem here is that when Hillary was in High School she was a Republican. At 13 years old, she enthusiastically canvassed for Richard Nixon in the 1960 race against JFK. In 1964, a 17 year old Hillary volunteered for Barry Goldwater. Once in college, she became President of the Young Republicans and even attended the 1968 Republican Convention.
So either Hillary was telling yet another lie, or she had some serious dinner table arguments about who was more conservative.
Indeed, a Salon report states that “In 1960, Hugh Rodham supported Richard M. Nixon for president. His 13-year-old daughter went along enthusiastically.”
In high school, Clinton was still leaning right.
A 2015 USA Today column on ‘6 Things to know about Hillary Clinton’ describes her as a ‘Goldwater Girl.’
“The first presidential candidate Clinton volunteered for was Republican Barry Goldwater, in 1964, when she was in high school,” the report reads. “She was a Young Republican and attended the 1968 Republican convention…”
During her time at Wellesley College, she “worked as a Washington, D.C., intern for Gerald Ford, who was then the Republican leader of the House, and she attended the 1968 Republican convention to work for New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller’s unsuccessful effort to get the GOP presidential nomination.”
American Crossroads Spokesman, Ian Prior, said “Clearly there is no aspect of her life that Hillary Clinton won’t twist for her own political advantage.”
He added, “The fact that she is now resorting to lame, pointless fibs about her childhood should make voters wonder if Hillary Clinton even has the capacity to tell the truth.”
