Whenever I think of Hillary Clinton (or almost any politician these days) I always think of this funny quote: “How do we know Hillary’s lying?” ANSWER: “Her lips are moving.” I love that quote precisely because it nails exactly Hillary’s problem and why she was SO unelectable.
Hillary has come up with excuse after excuse as to why she lost the election against Donald Trump and they may be hard to pin down…well, just because there are so many of them. Recently, she’s blamed Bernie Sanders being in the race just because of sexism. It’s now impossible that there will ever be a Clinton Presidential Library for Hillary, but perhaps a wing in her husband’s library can be dedicated to the many reasons why she lost her second shot at the presidency.
Regardless, it all comes down to a very simple answer. She’s a liar who has flip-flopped so often that she doesn’t even know where the lies begin and where they end! Let’s start with DACA — in 2014 she wanted to send illegal children back to their home countries — now she’s furious at Trump for ending DACA. Did she not think we’d notice the change in her rhetoric?
A 2014 video featuring Hillary Clinton discussing the influx of Central American children into the United States re-emerged Thursday, and in it, she can be heard telling CNN’s Christiane Amanpour that those children — who had entered America illegally — “should be sent back.”
The two sat down to discuss the 2014 immigration surge of Central American women and unaccompanied children who were seeking asylum and trying to enter the U.S. illegally. The mass exodus was triggered in part by increasing violence in the areas from which most of the children came — including countries like Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador.
Clinton’s 2014 comments on the immigration surge are a stark contrast to her vehement opposition to President Donald Trump’s decision to rescind DACA. The DACA program granted two-year work permits to undocumented immigrants who came to the United States illegally as children.
Speaking with Amanpour to discuss the influx of Central American illegal immigrant children entering the U.S. through Mexico, Clinton did not mince words and said that they should be sent away from the U.S. and reunited with their families instead.
“Should they be able to stay here?” Amanpour asked. “It’s safer.”
Clinton responded, “Well, it may be safer, but that’s not the answer.”
Clinton later added, “They should be sent back as soon as it can be determined who responsible adults in their families are, because there are concerns whether all of them should be sent back. But I think all of them who can be should be reunited with their families.”
Clarifying, she told Amanpour, “[The government has] to send a clear message: just because your child gets across the border, that doesn’t mean the child gets to stay.”
After President Donald Trump announced last week his plan to repeal DACA, Clinton was one of many liberals who hit out against the president’s decision.
On Twitter, Clinton wrote, “No time to waste — we’ve got to fight with everything we’ve got to #DefendDACA. Thanks, @jorgeramousnews, for sharing these powerful stories.”

One thing you’ll never hear from the Fake News Industrial Complex and that’s the truth. This lie that Hillary is for DACA is just another one that will have to be covered up and (hopefully) ignored.
The ability for Clinton to lie with such ease and apparent disregard for whoever might call her on the misdirection is a product of years of relying on the very same FNIC that refused to call her on any of her lies prior to the election. I don’t expect that to change even now.
