On Fox News Sunday, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton became her own personal psychologist and diagnosed the mother of Benghazi victim Sean Smith with grief-induced memory loss when it comes to her recollection of what she was told regarding her son's death.
Host Chris Wallace played the "dramatic moment" when Pat Smith took the stage at the Republican National Convention and placed blame directly on Hillary for the death of her son. Mrs. Smith has maintained that Clinton, and other members of the Obama administration, told her that Benghazi was the result of a video, not a terrorist attack as she described to daughter Chelsea in an e-mail the very night of said terrorist attack. The father of victim Tyrone Woods says he also was misled.
But when responding to Wallace, who asked why they would make that up, Clinton concluded that their minds must've been too clouded with grief to hear everything she said to them:
"I understand the grief and the incredible sense of loss that can motivate that. As other members of families who lost loved ones have said that's not what they heard. I don't hold any ill feeling for someone who, in that moment, may not fully recall everything that was, or wasn't, said."
I guess that's better than calling her an outright liar like Clinton did during a debate:
The Freedom Center is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Therefore we do not endorse political candidates either in primary or general elections. However, as defenders of America’s social contract, we insist that the rules laid down by both parties at the outset of campaigns be respected, and that the results be decided by free elections. We will oppose any attempt to rig the system and deny voters of either party their constitutional right to elect candidates of their choice.
