So the Huffington Post is still around for some reason, in part because they save so much money by not paying most of their writers. That alone should make readers wonder how reliable a lot of their articles are.
HuffPo generates a lot of page views (and therefore, ad revenue) with its blatant left-leaning editorial slant, and in-your-face headlines.
Donald Trump: ‘I Hope’ Russia Hacked Clinton’s Email Servers
The Republican nominee broke a cardinal rule of American politics: Never root against the United States
Funny, did HuffPo say something similar when Michelle Obama said she wasn’t proud to be American (although apparently she’s changed her tune, if her DNC speech was any indication)? Or what about when Obama himself mocked “American exceptionalism,” to cite just one example of many over the course of his career?
HuffPo’s Christina Wilkie at least quotes Donald Trump accurately, which, unfortunately, doesn’t quite match her story’s headline:
“If they hacked, they probably have her 33,000 emails. I hope they do,” Trump said at a press conference at his resort in Doral, Florida.
Like everyone else on the left (and even some on the right) Wilkie is desperately trying to distract from the key issue. If Hillary Clinton hadn’t insisted on using an illegal “home brew” email server and broken all kinds of other national security rules, the Russians (or whoever) wouldn’t have been able to hack them in the first place.
Trump wasn’t the one who told her to use that server. Trump wasn’t the one who let her off scot free for crimes, like deleting government emails, that other, less “important” people have been prosecuted for.
But Trump makes a few snide remarks about these events, and he’s the bad guy.
It’s pretty funny watching liberals pretending to be interested in national security all of a sudden.
