Gail Collins concludes her latest New York Times op-ed entitled "Coming to Terms with Donald," by observing:
"In one way, Trump’s campaign pitch is a little like Hillary Clinton’s. She’s less about a new vision than about the ability to take care of the government, wring some long-awaited changes out of Congress and handle foreign affairs. His is about getting things done through the miracle of genius negotiating. ('We’ve got to get things done folks, O.K.? Believe me, don’t worry. We’re going to make such great deals.')
Really, they’re very similar in that sense. Except that she’s been a senator and secretary of state, and he’s got his name on a ton of golf courses.
We live in strange times, people. Strange times."
Indeed, I cannot bring myself to imagine Trump as the Republican presidential candidate. On the other hand, the thought of Hillary as the Democratic candidate is equally repulsive.
Yes, Hillary was a senator and a secretary of state. Care to tell us about her accomplishments, Gail?
She is also the "wife" of Bill (let's not inquire into the details of that marital arrangement), and earlier this month, Juanita Broaddrick tweeted:
"I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73….it never goes away."
Is Hillary indeed an "enabler" of a sexual predator?
In addition, there are all those millions of dollars that her foundation received from Muslim countries guilty of abominations against women and from banks guilty of conspiring to undertake currency manipulation.
And last but not least, I expect she will be indicted for the data received and stored in her home server. Failure to indict Hillary would amount to an indictment of the American criminal justice system.
Strange times indeed.
