FROM: DAVID E. BOWER NORTH EAST
So you think Donald Trump is crass and Hillary Clinton is nicer because she’s a woman and wouldn’t it be so nice to finally have a woman president. After all, don’t most polls show that she is preferable to him?
The media have piled dirt on him so where there’s smoke, there’s fire, right? Using the same logic, there is so much smoke coming from Mrs. Clinton’s past and the media refuses to investigate whether there is any fire at all. Is true journalism dead in America?
Briefly, she was thrown off the Watergate Committee for showing bias; the travel gate scandal; Vince Foster’s “suicide”; Bill’s women, including Juanita Broaddrick accusing him of rape when he was governor of Arkansas; Paula Jones winning a $850,000 lawsuit alleging his indecent exposure; the Jennifer Flowers affair; his groping of Kathleen Willey in the White House; and of course, intern Monica Lewinsky being “mentored” in every nook and cranny of the Oval Office.
Mrs. Clinton’s role in all this: enabling her husband and doing her best to destroy these women. More recently, she received millions of dollars from Middle Eastern countries where Sharia law keeps women downtrodden, having no voice in family matters, getting legally beaten by their husbands and stoned to death for adultery. And Hillary’s a champion of women? And children? She defended partial-birth abortion (the ultimate child abuse) in the last debate. As for Mr. Trump, quoting Texas pastor Robert Jeffress, “We are choosing a president, not a Sunday school teacher.” The Clintons are the modern day versions of Bonnie and Clyde and will make the U.S. Treasury their personal piggy bank.
And voters, don’t trust the polls as they are sometimes meant to shape public opinion, not show it.
