Democrats with very short memories are pushing the idea that Donald Trump can’t be trusted to keep classified information secret, so elect Hillary Clinton instead. You don’t need me to point out the flaw in that argument. But here’s a new twist on the innuendo: unsuitability by association. Buzzfeed News quotes various foreign policy experts as being “concerned” about giving Trump intelligence briefings because his top campaign adviser, Paul Manafort, has also done work for Russian officials and pro-Putin forces in Ukraine.
Trump supporters fired back that Hillary can’t even seem to eat pizza without having Huma Abadin dab her mouth with a napkin; and Huma’s mom, Dr. Saleha Mahmood Abedin, is one of the founders of the Muslim Sisterhood and chairperson of the International Islamic Committee for Woman and Child. The IICWC promotes the spread of Sharia law, including allowing female genital mutilation and polygamy and revoking laws against child marriage and marital rape. Naturally, Hillary supporters say that pointing that out is unfair guilt by association.
But as long as people are trying to tie candidates to security risks that are at least three degrees of separation away, is anyone “concerned” that Hillary’s right-hand woman Huma is actually married to Anthony Weiner? That guy will Tweet out ANYTHING!
