Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who, just a few months ago, was thought to be a shoe-in as the Democrat nominee for the 2016 presidential election, caused a panel of CNN commentators on “State of the Union” to burst out in laughter after she was caught in another blatant lie.
Clinton, who faces a steep challenge from socialist candidate Bernie Sanders and possibly also Vice President Joe Biden, attempted to appeal to the far left of her party by trying to convince a crowd of her ultra-progressive views.
“I take a backseat to no one when you look at my record of standing up and fighting for progressive values,” Clinton said.
The panel then rolled tape of a recent speech in which she presented herself as something completely different.
“You know, I get accused of being kind of moderate and center,” Clinton said. “I plead guilty.”
When the cameras went back to the panel, the CNN panelists were obviously confused and responded with laughter.
“So, kind of a mixed message?” the host asked.
“You think?” one panelist remarked, followed by more giggling (H/T IJ Review).
It’s a pretty bad sign when a liberal panel at CNN is so taken aback by Clinton’s inconsistent politics that it actually causes them to crack up laughing.
