Hillary Clinton may brag about her foreign policy chops, and they should have her cleaning up on the foreign policy end of things.
Her years of experience in government and as secretary of State, however, don’t seem to be helping her much as she displayed during a recent forum about military and veterans’ issues. Even mainstream media members were admitting that.
Western Journalism reports how the liberal media is spinning the event:
“Despite vast foreign policy experience that includes her service as America’s secretary of State, the best Hillary Clinton could do against Donald Trump in Wednesday night’s Commander-in-Chief forum on military and veterans’ issues was a draw, an MSNBC host admitted.”
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough was the main Clinton critic, and what he told “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd wasn’t pretty.
“It seems to me,” Scarborough said, speaking of Clinton’s performance, “and I think you drew the same conclusion that many of us have around the table, last night, really nobody was a winner. It was more of a draw.”
And a draw on what is supposed to be Clinton’s greatest strength? Count that as a major win in Trump’s column.
Clinton’s camp has hit heavy at their candidate’s foreign policy experience, calling it hefty in comparison to that of Republican Donald Trump’s. And the Democrat’s campaign has gone out of its way to paint Trump as a buffoon, incapable of handling overseas’ policy with the finesse and diplomacy that’s required.
But apparently even media members who want to see Clinton win the White House aren’t agreeing.
“You’ve got to have the head coaches on both teams going, ‘My God, we better show up more than we did last night,'” Scarborough said.
Todd saw similarly.
“There’s no doubt,” he said. “They both need better debate prep. Hers, though, is not informational. Right? Hers is stylistic. Hers is also figuring out how to give an email answer that is credible and at the same time short. She gets bogged down in detail.”
