While we’re still in the throes of what Trump alleged called some countries I bet you’ve already forgotten about the time that former President Barack Obama called Libya a “sh*t show”, right?
Yeah of course you did — because the media was basically totally silent on that front.
Now I typically don’t like getting into the “oh yeah? well, so-and-so said THIS” game but the Libs LOVE it and they’re just going to town on the alleged “sh*thole countries” remark that even Trump is denying was said. So I digress…
The catch is that he blamed David Cameron for “turning Libya” into said show. Cameron was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom between 2010 to 2016 and the leader of the Conservative Party.
Obama stated that Cameron became “distracted” after the 2011 intervention, he even likened the UK, France, and other allies as “freeloaders”.
According to the Atlantic:
“So we actually executed this plan as well as I could have expected: We got a UN mandate, we built a coalition, it cost us $1 billion—which, when it comes to military operations, is very cheap. We averted large-scale civilian casualties, we prevented what almost surely would have been a prolonged and bloody civil conflict. And despite all that, Libya is a mess.
Mess is the president’s diplomatic term; privately, he calls Libya a “shit show,” in part because it’s subsequently become an isis haven — one that he has already targeted with air strikes. It became a shit show, Obama believes, for reasons that had less to do with American incompetence than with the passivity of America’s allies and with the obdurate power of tribalism.
But back when he said it… nothing but silence from the “mainstream media”
THEN let us not forget Hillary Clinton’s comment in 2000 about Paul Fray, Bill’s campaign manager, where it was alleged that she referred to him as a “f*cking jew”.
“I’ve said all I’m going to say about this. It wasn’t true. It didn’t happen, and I’m not going to allow it to distract from the real issues in this campaign,” Clinton said at a press conference in Albany following her endorsement by the state AFL-CIO.
Of course, she dodges it. Fray, however, was game to go the distance about it.
“The whole bottom line is that if I’m telling a lie, I’ll be glad to take a lie-detector exam,” Fray said. He continued, “And if that doesn’t satisfy the question, then let me take a truth serum.”
Clinton said in response, “He can do whatever he wants to do. I mean, I have nothing to say about it or to him.”
OH But he TOOK the lie detector test… Jeff Hubanks, who gave the exam, had been licensed to do so in Arkansas for over four years, and had, at the time, conducted up to 500 lie-detector tests.
Hubank’s findings that Fray was being truthful were reviewed yesterday by one of the country’s foremost polygraphers, Richard Keifer.
Eye for an eye, right? This is the Libs favorite game and we can always play it right back at them.
