At Wednesday night’s third and final presidential debate, Donald Trump missed many opportunities to go for the jugular and take out Hillary Clinton once and for all.
He didn’t blow every opportunity, however.
Hillary spent the whole night reciting talking points and repeating the claim that she’s spent her whole life helping “children and families,” by which she means single mothers on welfare. Her idea of helping them has been a series of harebrained egalitarian schemes that have done nothing to actually help children. Children would be most helped by having a father around.
Since women are the foundation of the families that Hillary’s appealing to, Trump went after her hypocrisy in accepting money from Muslim countries that murder women.
This is clever debating by Trump, but it won’t change the mind of any Hillarybot. These women supporters of hers care only about her “caring” rhetoric and the few crumbs of benefits that Hillary will see to it they get when she’s POTUS.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump called out the Clinton Foundation for accepting money from countries such as Saudi Arabia that abuse women and gays and minority groups in the debate Wednesday, asking why she doesn’t “give back the money.”
“It is a criminal enterprise,” Trump said, referring to the Clinton Foundation. “Saudi Arabia giving $25 million, Qatar, all of these countries, you check about women and women’s race — these are people that push gays off buildings. They kill women and treat women horribly, and yet you take their money.”
“So I would like to ask you right now,” he continued. “Why don’t you give back the money that you have taken from certain countries that treat certain groups of people so horribly? Why don’t you give back the money? I think it would be a great gesture, because she takes a tremendous amount of money –”
“The Clinton Foundation is a disgrace,” he added. “And you know it, and they know it, and everybody knows it.”
Hillary then pivoted to some unrelated or barely related talking point, which she always does.
All of us concerned with honesty appreciated the Donald’s effort in calling the Clinton Foundation a criminal enterprise, but he’s going to have to do better in the time remaining to win over undecided voters.
