Hillary and the Clinton News Network

The great thing about having the media as part of your campaign team is that they willingly lend credibility to your most implausible excuses: Hillary Clinton said Monday night she’s “met a high standard of transparency” about her health and didn’t think the pneumonia was “going to be that big a deal.” Clinton said she felt […]
