After losing the New Hampshire primary, Hillary Clinton claims to have led a “life of service,” and compares herself to police, nurses, firefighters, and the military in her concession speech.
In her speech, she said:
“We need to break down those barriers and build ladders of opportunity for every person. That’s how we will build a better tomorrow together, and that has been the cause and work of my life. You know, my family and my faith taught me a simple thing, do all the good in all the ways you can for all the people you can. That’s what called me to a life of service. Just like millions of teachers and nurses and police officers and firefighters and members of our armed services, who get up every day and do the quiet work, the heroic work for all the rest of us.“
Where is the “life of service” and “heroic work” she is claiming to have? When she was running from “snipers” in the Balkans? When she ignored pleas of help and U.S. Ambassador Stevens, Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods, and Sean Smith were killed in Benghazi? When she leaked thousands of emails compromising national security and American lives? When she was paid millions of dollars to speak to potential donors and Wall Street bankers? When she was allegedly committing fraud with her foundation?
Hillary has never risked her life like the men and women of our military and first responders. She has never signed that blank check like those who have deployed. By definition a politician is a servant of the people, however when actions prove otherwise it is difficult to believe her claim to a “life of service”.
