Trump and Hillary at the Al Smith Dinner
At the annual Al Smith dinner Thursday night in New York City, we saw Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton giving talks at the event, and although both presidential candidates shot zingers at each other, Trump launched the heaviest and most piercing, humorous jabs, which hit Hillary and her dishonesty hard, while most of her comments at Trump’s expense fell short of the mark and were not at all funny, just petty and whining.
One might say that Trump’s personal shots at Hillary were harsh, as remarks at these events sometimes are, but one cannot be too harsh when criticizing a woman who wants to cause revolution within the Catholic Church and get them to stop their old Medieval ways; who has hired thugs to cause violence at Trump campaign speeches and bomb his offices; and who thinks it’s okay for a president to hold two opposing opinions on an issue, one for personal and political use, and one for public discussion and consumption (in other words, she believes it’s okay to lie to the public on issues in order to get their votes).
Regardless of how Hillary glowingly praises the principle of national unity, taking a strong stance on immigration, and her dream of a strong middle class with full employment, we now know, thanks to WikiLeaks document dumps and the Veritas tapes, that she actually desires racial division and animosity in the United States, wants open borders to get more future Democrat voters in place, and promises more goodies in order to get more welfare recipients enslaved and dependent on big government.
Given the nature of Hillary Clinton, the only honest thing for Trump to have done is exactly what he did: he hit her hard verbally, and he told the truth. Personally I don’t know how one could stand to be on the same stage with someone as dishonest and disgusting as Hillary Clinton, considering her political violence and the lies she tells about any political foe who has the fortitude to actually oppose her ill-thought positions. But Trump did face her on the stage and he deserves the award of getting our votes on November 8th for his effort.
