Hillary Clinton, fresh from a recent bout of overheating/dehydration/flu/pneumonia/exhaustion/etc., got back on the campaign trail with a Thursday morning radio interview, though she now seems to be suffering from something else -- serious self-delusion.
On The Tom Joyner Show with News One’s Roland Martin and CNN’s Don Lemon, the conversation turned to the criticisms of Clinton that were revealed in Colin Powell‘s recently leaked emails, and it was on that point that Lemon asked her about whether she is hubristic by not being more transparent with the people.
Mediaite reports that as Hillary spoke, she got an audible chuckle from the others as she insisted that she was not only more transparent than Donald Trump, but more transparent than any U.S. presidential candidate before her:
“I think I’ve worked very, very hard to be more transparent than not just my opponent, but in a comparison to anybody’s who’s run. The medical information I put out, and we’re going to put out more, meets and exceeds the standard that other presidential candidates, including President Obama and Mitt Romney, have met. I think the real questions need to be directed to Donald Trump and his failure to meet even the most minimalistic standards that we expect of someone being the nominee of our two major parties.”
So much for not being hubristic.
Hillary’s claim is curious considering that a lack of transparency -- i.e., inveterate lying -- is one of the biggest problems voters have with her.
