Who can remember any of Hillary Clinton's speeches?
When I think about her most memorable speeches, two of them come to mind.
One was during the Benghazi hearings and Hillary's famous moment of pure compassion for an ambassador who was killed under her watch as Secretary of State. Her contrite and feelings of responsibility could be heard in her voice when she cried out
‘What difference, at this point, does it make?'
The second situation was when Hillary was on the campaign trail in 2016 and made this remark,
“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?” Clinton said. “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic—you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.”
Yet if you ask the average person, if Hillary is a kind, caring person, I believe both Democrats and republicans would answer YES.
Trump, is different, He is known to be nasty and divisive. Here is a small sample of some of the name calling by Trump.
Ted Cruz, "Lying Ted"
Elizabeth Warren - "Pocahontas"
Bernie Sanders - "Crazy Bernie"
Joe Biden - "Sleepy Creepy Joe"
Nancy Pelosi - "Nervous Nancy"
Trump seemed to nickname everyone in politics. For this crime he was called a nasty person. Hillary insulting half the country did not make her a nasty person.
As time went on, those deplorable conservatives became known as "Racist" then “White Supremacists”.
2022 became the year that Biden became addicted to the F-word.
In 2020, Joe Biden hit all the right notes in his victory speech:
“We have to stop treating our opponents as our enemies. They are not our enemies. They’re Americans,” and “Let’s give each other a chance."
Two years later, Biden forgot about his opponents being Americans, now they have become semi-fascist.
“The MAGA Republicans don’t just threaten our personal rights and economic security,” the president said. “They’re a threat to our very democracy. They refuse to accept the will of the people. They embrace political violence. They don’t believe in democracy.”
For this speech, Biden has been praised by our media. He is not called nasty.
Morrison ended his article in the Berkshire Eagle, with this sentence,
"You know what happened next. Also, what to expect in the U.S. in coming months. You will be hearing more of the F-word. Listen carefully."
Morrison's words sadly proved to be true. Biden has gone on the attack of an ally of the USA and a Democratic election in Italy. He feels that she too is a fascist and dangerous.
“Literally, there’s a case being made around the world, not just here, because democracy and autocracy.” That wasn’t even a sentence, but you get the idea. He continued, “You just saw what’s happened in Italy in that election. You’re seeing what’s happening around the world. The reason I bother to say that is, you can’t be sanguine about what’s happening here either.”
Giorgia Meloni, a conservative Italian politician has become Italy's Prime Minister and Biden insults her.
