Hillary Clinton was shocked during her teleconference yesterday in a video address to the Laborers’ International Union of North America that she isn’t 50 points ahead in the polls. Listen to the video, she sounds very, very angry about it.
She has spent $145.3 million to Trump’s $4.4 million, she has the unions in her pocket, and, as she suggested, she’s promised freebies, free healthcare, minimum wage increases at the expense of small business, collective bargaining, taxation for payoffs to unions via infrastructure and so on.
“Having said all this, ‘Why aren’t I 50 points ahead?’ you might ask?” … Well, the choice for working families has never been clearer. I need your help to get Donald Trump’s record out to everybody. Nobody should be fooled.”
And Donald Trump quickly came up with the answer.
“Because she’s terrible,” he said bluntly.
“I mean, she’s had a terrible record. Everything she touches is bad. You look at what’s going on with Libya and you look at the surge and you look at all of her decisions and you look at the Iran deal, which is one of the dumbest deals I’ve ever seen, which she started, and she totally backs, by the way, I mean, in its completed form, she totally backs. You look at everything she touched, I mean, it’s just a mess. And she’s spending a lot of money and so far it’s not had much of an impact because I guess I’m winning in most of these states and we’ll see what happens in the end, but she is [terrible].”
