But let’s give her the launch codes!
Hillary, as we all know, is the smartest woman on the planet. She’s just unbelievably sharp. In fact, her intellect is such that she was about to become President back in 2008. If it weren’t for the sudden appearance of an even smarter “articulate black man,” we’d have been living in President Clinton’s America for the last eight years. Now, because she’s praticaly an avatar for human intelligence, she’s about to claim the job that’s rightfully hers.
But…if she’s so smart, why does she seem to have so much trouble understanding those pesky classification markings on documents?
After all, as Florida Representative Ron DeSantis pointed out at today’s hearing, someone so obviously brilliant should be able to get a handle on them. Could it be that her “sophistication” has been overblown?
DeSantis: “Of that top secret information that you found, would somebody who was sophisticated in those matters, should it have been obvious to them that that was very sensitive information?”
Comey admitted that, yes, it should have been obvious. So, DeSantis attempted to establish that Hillary Clinton is, in fact, a sophisticated person. Unfortunately, it seems that’s not the case.
De Santis: “So you have to follow certain guidelines and I guess my question is she’s a very sophisticated person. She did execute that document, correct?”
De Santis: “How would you not then not know that that was something that was inappropriate to do?”
Comey: “Well, I want to take one of your assumptions about sophistication. I don’t think that our investigation established she was actually particularly sophisticated with respect to classified information and the levels and treatment.“
In other words, Hillary Clinton – who’s spent an entire lifetime in government – first as an attorney, then as a Governor’s wife, a First Lady, a Senator, and a Secretary of State – doesn’t understand classification markings. That’s the crap sandwhich that James Comey would have you choke down.
I don’t buy it for a second, and no sane person would, but let’s take him at his word for a second.
Hillary has been in government for decades, but hasn’t bothered to familiarize herself with classification markings because she isn’t “particularly sophisticated.”
Why then, would anyone consider placing her in the oval office?
