What Really Hurts Hillary

The right will, at times in concert with the far left, try to throw things at Secretary Clinton like Benghazi, emails and her wardrobe. None of that will stick to her but what can are problems at the Clinton Global Initiative, which her husband (you remember him… the one President since 1980 to get to full employment WHILE running a surplus) runs. Most of the stuff stuff there now is generic rich assholes claiming that their donations bought them some kind of influence with the Secretary all presented without a shred of proof.

What does hurt, because it hits at the core of her campaign messaging, is this

Hillary Clinton may be running for president as a champion for the middle class, but the Clinton Foundation’s interns do not get paid.

“Businesses have taken advantage of unpaid internships to an extent that it is blocking the opportunities for young people to move on into paid employment,” Clinton said at UCLA in 2013. “More businesses need to move their so-called interns to employees.”

That doesn’t happen at her own business, the Clinton Foundation that Bill started in 2001.

I’ll grant that a lot of interns are doing it for a spot on a resume and usually have the wherewithal to do what is essentially charity work. However, explaining that is a lot harder than making the attack that Hillary isn’t a hypocrite. So, what’s the best way out of this? Someone (que Bill) needs to own the issue and FIX IT.

Like today.
