Editorial: Trump Talk and Clinton’s Chatter

Rumors, lies, and excuses in the debates

Stella Haussler, Staff Writer

Hillary Clinton has recently been diagnosed with pneumonia after she passed out during the 9/11 memorial ceremony, but Donald Trump was questioning if Clinton is “loyal” to her husband, considering Bill Clinton’s past in sex scandals Trump inquired if Hillary was acting like her spouse.

The problem here is that before the debate Trump said, “If she treats me with respect, I will treat her with respect.”

Now he’s firing away with accusations against not only her but people who campaign for Clinton such as, Alicia Machado. Alicia Machado who is 1996 Miss Universe was shamed by Trump for gaining weight. The young woman continues to stand strong as Trump continues to call her disgusting and belittle her with other hateful comments.

Trumps list of attacks against Hillary become even more childish as you dig deeper on the subject. Trump is running against Hillary not her husband, but Trump persists on attacking former president Bill Clinton as well. He accused Bill of raping Juanita Broaddrick during his interview in May with Fox News. He tweeted that Bill “the WORST abuser of women in U.S. political history.” He then proceeded to  comment that Hillary tries to knock down women who have had affairs with her husband.

But on October 5th 2016, he tweeted “Bill Clinton is right: Obamacare is ‘crazy’, ‘doesn’t work’ and ‘doesn’t make sense’.  Thanks Bill for telling the truth.” So what is Trump’s real opinion on the Clinton’s? He seems to have mixed emotions if he is going to agree with them one minute and then attack them with cruel rumors. Then again Hillary did accuse Trump of treason.

Although she did not directly say ‘treason,’ but she did say, “We know that a lot of the rhetoric we’ve heard from Donald Trump has been seized on by terrorists,..we know that Donald Trump’s comments have been used online for recruitment of terrorists. We’ve heard that from former CIA Director Michael Hayden, who made it a very clear point when he said Donald Trump is being used as a recruiting sergeant for the terrorist’s.”

Our 2016 Election is a little bit of a mess considering we have two very unreliable people as our candidates, but when election day comes will we choose the woman who kept her mouth shut 90% of the time, or the man who will not shut his trap for five seconds?
