What authoritarians do: Attack the apolitical administration... If Hillary Clinton plans to mislead, malign and manipulate her way back into the White House, I’d appreciate it if she’d leave my grandmothers out of it. For Latinos, our abuelas are sacred, and we’d rather not see them turned into political props. The Democratic front-runner and her campaign recently made a condescending attempt to convince Latinos that La Hillary is just like us. Or, rather, just like our grandmothers. Don’t go there. The post, by Clinton staffer Paola Luisi, listed “7 things Hillary Clinton has in common with your abuela.” Such as: “She worries about children everywhere.” “She … [Read more...] about Hillary Clinton’s pandering to Latinos is insulting

Opinion By Debra J. Saunders Updated 9:30 am, Wednesday, July 6, 2016 FBI Director James Comey was right to assert that “no reasonable prosecutor” would press criminal charges against Hillary Clinton.

Clinton summed up Trump's message as "you know, you didn't like black people getting rights, you don't like women, you know, getting jobs. You don't want, you know, to see that Indian American succeeding more than you are." "I understand how some of what I said upset people and can be misinterpreted," Clinton said in her … [Read more...] about Hillary Clinton tries to explain her comments on Trump voters after backlash
