Uh, maybe because “everybody else” who’s ever mishandled classified information like you did has gone to prison?
Which, alas, isn’t what she was talking about.
Hillary Clinton pushed back on questions over the transcripts of her paid speeches during a televised Democratic town hall Tuesday, asking, “Why is there one standard for me and not for everybody else?”
The former secretary of state has been criticized for her paid speeches, including three for Goldman Sachs that earned her $675,000. During a town hall in Nevada last week, she said she would release transcripts of the speeches “when everybody else does the same.”
Clinton echoed that promise again during CNN’s town hall on Tuesday, saying she’d release the speeches “if everybody does it, and that includes the Republicans.”
There’s a double standard for her alright, and she knows it. In fact, she’s counting on it. And her media lapdogs will do everything they can to perpetuate it, hoping against hope that they’ll be able to drag her over the finish line and into the White House.
