Say what you want about Hillary Clinton (and there are plenty of folks out there with some rather blunt opinions of her), but she just brilliantly humiliated Donald Trump.
Anyone who even remotely follows politics, and actually cares about things like “facts” and “truth,” is probably well aware of the reality that Trump rarely tells either. It really is comical (though incredibly pathetic) how he managed to become the presumptive nominee for the Republican party — while literally almost never saying anything that’s true.
Then there’s always the glaring reality that Trump is simply too incompetent and flat-out unqualified to actually be president. I’m convinced that if I gave him an ordinary, freshmen-level American Government college exam, he probably couldn’t even score above a 50 on it – if that.
And it’s not exactly difficult to prove how little he actually understands about what it takes to be the president, just ask him to be specific about one of his policies. He can’t do it. He’ll typically just ramble on about something, trying to pivot back to his usual empty talking points while hoping that if he talks long enough no one will notice that he never actually answered the question. That or he’ll get defensive and accuse the person pressing him of being “unfair” or a “loser who’s terrible.”
Well, on Thursday, Hillary Clinton delivered a lengthy speech on foreign policy that many have heralded as one of the best speeches she’s ever given. During that speech, she ripped into Trump for many things, though most of her attention focused on how dangerous and incompetent he is concerning foreign and international affairs.
It goes without saying that Trump was not pleased. Following her speech, he spent much of his day essentially throwing a hissy fit, childishly bashing Clinton while claiming that she lied about everything she said during her speech related to his foreign policy stances.
Here’s one of the tweets he sent out:
In Crooked Hillary's telepromter speech yesterday, she made up things that I said or believe but have no basis in fact. Not honest!

So, how did Clinton respond?
Oh, just by putting together an extensive article that included what she said during her speech, along with Trump’s actual quote, then they linked sources to prove that he said every single one of those comments.
I sincerely hope someone in the media has the courage to confront Trump with a printout of this article. I’m not exaggerating when I say that I would pay money to see someone go comment by comment, asking him how he can call her a liar when his word-for-word quotes she called out are right there in black and white — along with exactly what she said.
He would undoubtedly come up with some ridiculous response – like he has before when he’s been busted lying – because he’s well aware that his supporters couldn’t care less about facts. Either way, it would still be must-see TV.
Again, I don’t really care what your opinion of Hillary Clinton is, unless you’re a Donald Trump supporter, it’s hard to deny that this was a brilliant response that’s pretty humiliating for Donald Trump’s pathetic campaign.
