When she was First Lady, Hillary Clinton blamed her husband’s troubles on “a vast right wing conspiracy” — instead of, for instance, his own inability to keep his pants zipped.
Conservatives quickly adopted the phrase and made it into a joke. Hillary probably wishes to this day that she’d never said it.
Her latest goofy expression doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, but once again, Hillary is blaming a conspiracy of mysterious “others” for her troubles.
Breitbart has the story:
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is blaming internet websites for eroding her trustworthiness poll numbers.
“A lot of what people read about me in certain corners of the internet and a lot of what Donald Trump says about me is just that same nonsense,” she said during a speech at the International Women’s luncheon, referring to a long history of political attacks. (…)
“I could say that political opponents and conspiracy theorists have accused me of every crime in the book over the years,” she added. “None of it’s true, never has been.”
Clinton grew reflective, admitting that she had “work to do” to convince voters that she was trustworthy.
“You know, you hear 25 years worth of wild accusations, anyone would start to wonder,” she said. “And it is certainly true that I’ve made mistakes. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t. So I understand why people have questions.”
There was a time when, if a woman was wandering around muttering about shadowy “conspiracies” and “opponents” who’d been out to get her for 25 years, we’d call them paranoid and lock them up. Now they get to run for president!
