So much for the idea that Donald Trump can’t beat Hillary Clinton:
An acid-tongued Hillary Clinton ripped into conservatives on Thursday for what she said was an ‘obsession in some quarters’ with the notion that the global spread of terrorism is a byproduct of the Muslim faith, denying that the two are connected in any way.
‘Islam itself is not our adversary,’ the former secretary of state said during a campaign speech outlining her foreign policy objectives.
‘Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.’
If Trump wins the Republican nomination, I would expect we’re going to be seeing those words frequently over the next 12 months.
Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.’
– Hillary Clinton
It’s rather astonishing. Hillary Clinton may actually be a worse presidential candidate than Bob Dole and John McCain. It must be the Democrats’ turn to throw the election.
Meanwhile, back on Planet Earth, ten or so peaceful and tolerant people who have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism have attacked a Radisson hotel in Mali and hold 170 hostages there.
UPDATE: Le Monde reports that the Malian security ministry has confirmed three deaths so far in the siege.
