Will The Real Hillary Please Stand Up, Part III (Early Adult Years )

from Gronda Morin

This is a repeat of an earlier work. Hillary Clinton is attempting to reemerge back into the fray. I want to challenge the right’s “fake news” campaign against her for over 30 years.

Prior to 1996,  the year when the NY Times conservative columnist William Safire coined the phrase of Hillary Clinton as a congenital liar, there was still a lot of antipathy against her by republicans which started as early as 1974 during the time frame of her second job as a staffer on the House Judiciary Committee investigating Watergate, and this is before she became Mrs. Clinton. Years later in 2008, when she was running for elected office, conservative republicans contrived a story alleging that her boss, Jerry Ziefman had fired her for misconduct without a letter of recommendation.

Then during the 2nd presidential debate on 10/9/16, Mr. Trump stated for the record that he never acted with women in a similar manner as he described in the tapes. It was this denial along with what was said on the tapes which propelled these women to risk public censure by coming forward with their memories of how Mr. Trump had treated them with disrespect. He didn’t endear himself when he trotted out women from Clintons’ past onto the debate space in order to bully and humiliate our future, First Lady, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
