Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s odd and conflicting statements at a campaign event held Wednesday, hours before Republican challenger Donald Trump was to visit Mexico, suggested that the billionaire candidate’s unexpected move had severely unnerved the already mentally unstable candidate.
According to Breitbart, first she slammed Trump for calling the military (under Obama) a “disaster,” but then she stated that the United States needs to “modernize” its fighting forces.
She also seemed to argue for an effective third term of President Barack Obama, repeatedly touting his accomplishments both domestically and abroad, as if unaware that the majority of Americans believed America was headed in the wrong direction.
Moreover, Clinton tried to excoriate Trump for choosing to visit Mexico.
“It certainly takes more than trying to make up for a year of insults and insinuations by dropping in on our neighbors for a few hours and then flying home again,” she said. “That is not how it works.”
Except that the visit turned out to be a stellar success, with the Mexican president reportedly having conceded a number of Trump’s points, including the unnecessarily contentious one about the porous border being used by criminals and cartel members to smuggle guns, drugs, slaves and illegal immigrants.
Plus, during her tenure as the secretary of state, Clinton made numerous visits to foreign nations, though I can’t recall any of her trips having been as successful as Trump’s meeting in Mexico.
Regardless, the Democrat candidate’s behavior Wednesday indicated that she was simply at a loss for meaningful words and did not know how to react to Trump’s unexpected trip, or her health had failed her again. Or both.
Either way, she again made herself look frail and unpresidential, and that was good news for anyone who doesn’t want to see her in the Oval Office.
