Young people voting for the first time this year may find their heads reeling at how many revelations of scandals and shady deals involving the Clintons are bombarding them every day. It’s like a sleaze overload, and it eventually gives you the same feeling in your stomach that you get when you eat too many past-their-prime clams. It’s understandable that young voters might be overwhelmed because today’s 18-year-olds were only two when the Clintons left office. But let me assure you, this blizzard of lies is not just a feature of the hard-fought campaign that will go away once Hillary is in the White House and starts acting like a selfless stateswoman. Nope, this is pretty much standard operating procedure for the Clintons. Hillary claims they left the White House broke, and they’re now worth about $150 million, so the shady dealing and influence peddling obviously never let up. Those of us who lived through the ‘90s remember it well, which is why so many of us are adamant about never letting them back into the White House again. We feel like property owners who finally evicted the people who trashed our house, only to see them pop back up, wanting to move in again.
No, if you already have scandal fatigue (we actually called it “Clinton fatigue” back in the ‘90s), rest assured, it won’t go away if Hillary wins. Prepare to deal with scandals, schemes, revelations and calls for special prosecutors 24/7 for the next four years, and prepare for Hillary to blame the vast right-wing conspiracy because none of their scandals are ever their fault.
I think this story sums up well what we’re all in for if we let Hillary back into the White House. A friend of mine has a brother who was a local TV anchor in Oklahoma in the ‘90s. Back then, he told my friend that he ran one Clinton scandal story every day. My friend asked, “Isn’t that media bias?” He replied, “Heck, no! I get five a day; if I were biased, I’d run ‘em all!”
Here’s a rundown of what WikiLeaks has exposed thus far, as we brace for Phase Three of their email revelations. Fasten your seat belts, it’s going to be a bumpy week.
