Even The Media Gag On Hillary Clinton’s “Vermont-Guns-Fuel-NY-Crime” Whopper

posted on April 15, 2016

Yet another newspaper has called Hillary Clinton to task for her deceptive, misleading claim—on the eve of the New York primary—that Bernie Sanders’ home state of Vermont is responsible for “guns that end up committing crimes” [sic] in New York.

As Albany Times Union columnist Chris Churchill wrote Wednesday, of the firearms seized in connection with crimes in New York that could be traced, only 1.3 percent were traced to Vermont, meaning that “Clinton’s claim would be a big, fat lie if not for the two words she inserted between ‘highest’ and ‘number’: ‘per capita.’”

This kind of weasel-worded deception—the Clintons’ stock-in-trade—has increasingly alienated even Clinton’s supporters, from Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin to the Washington Post, which “awarded” Clinton “three Pinocchios” for her claim, which the Times Union columnist summed up as “blatantly dishonest.” Is it any wonder the number-one word Americans associate with Hillary is “liar”?
