On Sunday last, Donald Trump put the matter plain, telling Fox News interviewer Chris Wallace that Clinton “killed hundreds of thousands of people with her stupidity.”
Trump added, “If you look at what she did with Libya, what she did with Syria. Look at Egypt, what happened with Egypt, a total mess. She was truly – if not the – one of the worst secretaries of state in the history of the country.”
Despite the media’s trumpeting every contrary Trump pronouncement, this particular Donald zinger wasn’t so much as allowed a seat in the parlor. There was no media follow-on anywhere. Not even a sighting or a hearing of liberal outrage.
But the Dems know that drawing any attention whatsoever to the appalling results of their candidate’s previous stewardship of U.S. foreign policy would be most unwise. But the Republicans? One would think they’d appreciate the Donald’s tidy summation of Madam’s diplomatic career. But, no. Other than Trump himself and Rand Paul, every Republican presidential candidate is a warmonger.
Once again, the stupid party has shot itself in the foot. Republican candidates have left themselves no ground from which they might attack their near certain opponent’s greatest weakness, i.e. responsibility for the death and displacement of millions and the ruin of numerous countries that never threatened the United States for even a nanosecond at a cost to taxpayers of many trillions. Consequently, nearly the entire Republican bestiary has nothing to say other than that Hillary didn’t kill enough people.
