Sure, let’s give this clueless, brain-damaged woman the nuclear codes. What could possibly go wrong?
In 2008, Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign hinged on the notion of the 3am phone call. The telephone in the Oval Office rings in the middle of the night. It’s bad news. Who do you trust to pick up the receiver? The answer, implied the campaign, was Clinton.
But that’s nonsense, because a cache of Clinton’s private emails have just been released, and she couldn’t work a telephone to save her life. Just a year after the campaign, on 23 December 2009, Clinton found herself engaged in a tense email standoff with her aide Huma Abedin regarding the correct operation of fax machines.
“Can you hang up the fax line,” Abedin asked Clinton.
“I thought it was supposed to be off the hook to work?” Clinton wailed, in what can only be seen as a comprehensive misunderstanding of basic fax-machine procedure.
“Yes, but hang up one more time,” Abedin shot back.
“I did,” Clinton replied.
It’s 3am. Vladimir Putin is trying to fax a list of demands to the White House. Who do you trust to take receipt of these messages that have inexplicably been sent in a dead medium? Clinton? Hardly.
Think about that. She thought the phone had to be off the hook for it to work. And this was seven years ago. It’s even funnier seeing this in email form:

Plus we get to enjoy this scintillating back and forth between Grandma and Mrs. Weiner:

Meanwhile, back in March Obama stooge David Axelrod claimed he had no idea Granny Clinton had a private email. Oops.
The email trap: If the Rs make HRC email an obsessive fixation, to the exclusion of larger concerns of people, they will pay a price. Again.

Well, this is awkward:
