On the seemingly rare occasion that a liberal media person tries to exercise equal treatment of politicians, the liberal politician squirms under the treatment and lashes out!
On Friday, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell actually fact-checked Hillary Clinton’s suspicious tale of trying to join the Marines in 1975: “Those comments are being mocked by Republicans today and they’re getting two Pinocchios from Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler….Why on earth would she go to a Marine recruiter in 1975?…It doesn’t make sense.”
Her guest, Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was so taken aback that the Florida congresswoman attacked Mitchell for asking questions: “With all due respect, Andrea, why on earth are we talking about this?” Mitchell hit back: “Because she brought it up in New Hampshire the other day. If she hadn’t brought it up, it would not be an issue in this campaign.”
Schultz argued: “Andrea, Andrea, what the story illustrated was that we have made a lot of progress in America. Secretary Clinton is absolutely right. I mean, back then, you did have a much tougher time for women to be able to make it successfully through the recruitment process and move up in the military and we’ve made tremendous progress since then.”
I mean, with all due respect, I won’t defer to anyone in terms of people who have done stories over the decades about the challenges of women in the military….So I don’t think that’s the point. I think the point is just, did this happen? You have a presidential candidate, the frontrunner in the Democratic Party, saying something happened which is quite strikingly dissonant to people who knew her back then.
Schultz whined: “I just find it really unreasonable, Andrea….this is a personal story that Hillary Clinton has told, and it’s not the first time she told it. It didn’t come out of the blue.”
The head of the DNC talked herself into such a corner that she actually wound up defending Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson:
Do we need every single experience in a person’s life to be written in stone and blood and verifiable? There are things that happen to people all across America that can’t be verified. And I know your next question’s going to be about Ben Carson. And I think quite frankly, the same goes for stories about Ben Carson.
