The mainstream media is exasperated that Republicans would dare take jabs at Hillary Clinton, and her demonstrable public record, at their convention.
“The GOP’s new convention theme: ‘Lock her up!’ ” a Washington Post headline read on Wednesday.
“Over the first two nights of the GOP convention, at least three speakers have called for Hillary Clinton — the presumptive Democratic nominee — to be imprisoned,” the article read. “New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie recited a series of Clinton’s misdeeds and led the crowd in shouts of ‘guilty’ after each.”
Oh, the horror!
Republicans don’t like Mrs. Clinton!
They even think she should be in jail! Gasp!
Mr. Christie did an excellent job on Tuesday night painting the reasons why Mrs. Clinton should never return to the White House — especially as president of the United States. A former U.S. prosecutor, Mr. Christie laid out a compelling case — one in which the mainstream media refuses to believe — on why Mrs. Clinton is a criminal.
FBI Director James B. Comey first presented the case earlier this month when he politically indicted the former secretary of state and her use of a private email server. Unlike the lies Mrs. Clinton told for the last 18 months, no, her server was not authorized by the State Department. And yes, she did send and receive classified information that could’ve put the nation’s security at risk.
And the public agrees — Mrs. Clinton is not honest or trustworthy. Her national lead has plummeted after Mr. Comey’s press conference, with her holding a mere 2.7-percentage-point advantage, according to a Real Clear Politics national average. A new NBC online tracking poll finds only 28 percent of Americans think she’s trustworthy — 69 percent say she’s not.
Yet, those facts are too much for CNN’s Chris Cuomo to bear.
In the middle of an on-air interview, criticizing Republicans for not being forthright about Melania Trump cribbing some of her speech Monday night, Mr. Cuomo spoke to how double-sided it was for the GOP to defend Mrs. Trump, yet attack Mrs. Clinton.
