Back in November, for example, campaign spokesperson Brian Fallon tweeted out a link to a Politico report suggesting that early findings that some of her emails contained highly classified material were wrong. Maybe Fallon was just sharing, not endorsing, and the exclamation points he included in his tweet were just there to demonstrate his surprise at the story.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton flubbed the facts last week when she claimed that illegal immigrants pay more in taxes than large corporations, according to a Washington Post fact-check.
“In New York, which I know a little bit about because I represented it for eight years and I live there now, our undocumented workers in New York pay more in taxes than some of the biggest corporations in New York,” Clinton claimed at a North Las Vegas event.
The claim, sourced to a post on the website of Clinton rival Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), ignores crucial facts—such as the billions that alleged tax-dodging corporations actually pay—and compares tax bills for a group of individuals and corporate entities, which obscures crucial distinctions, theWashington Post’s Glenn Kessler found.
Excerpted from The Daily Caller: Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took a feminist tone on Thursday. She told attendees at the sixth annual Women in The World Summit that “deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed” for the sake of giving women access to “reproductive health care and safe childbirth.”
“Far too many women are denied access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth, and laws don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper,” Clinton said.
“Her grandparents always spoke about the immigrant experience and, as a result she has always thought of them as immigrants,” a spokesperson says. “As has been correctly pointed out, while her grandfather was an immigrant, it appears that Hillary’s grandmother was born shortly after her parents and siblings arrived in the U.S. in the early 1880s.”
Speaking in Iowa Wednesday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that all her grandparents had immigrated to the United States, a story that conflicts with public census and other records related to her maternal and paternal grandparents.
Democrats repeatedly make the claim that Republicans can’t win back young voters. DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz did so recently in the fall of 2014 when she declared, “You look at their records, and I can’t imagine what would be appealing to young people.”
Unfortunately for Democrats, young voters did take a look at Republicans’ records in the 2014 midterms and decided that there was something attractive about tuition freezes and record private-sector job growth. Despite the narrative that “young voters stayed home,” the national youth vote share was higher in 2014 than it has been in the past three midterm cycles. From 2002-2010, the national share was around 11-12 percent.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus attempted to sow doubt regarding Hillary Clinton’s trustworthiness hours before her expected campaign launch.
“Hillary Clinton is, quite frankly, someone the American people can’t trust,” Priebus said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
Priebus pointed to Clinton’s recent admission that she used a private email account during her four-year tenure as secretary of State and the Clinton Foundation’s decision to accept donations from foreign countries.
