This Woman Should Be President
At the PEN America World Voices Festival yesterday, Hillary Clinton came out and boldly stated this:
"We are living through an all-out war on truth, facts and reason. When leaders deny things we can see with our own eyes, like the size of a crowd at the Inauguration, when they refuse to accept settled science when it comes to urgent challenges like climate change...it is the beginning of the end of freedom, and that is not hyperbole. It’s what authoritarian regimes through history have done.
"Today we have a President who seems to reject the role of a free press in our democracy. Although obsessed with his own press coverage, he evaluates it based not on whether it provides knowledge or understanding, but solely on whether the daily coverage helps him and hurts his opponents.
"Now, given his track record, is it any surprise that according to the latest round of revelations, he joked about throwing reporters in jail to make them talk?"
An American President talking about jailing reporters? We never thought we'd see it. And since the more reasonable person won the 2016 popular vote, we're wondering why she isn't President — especially since the person who's there now is guilty of everything he accused her of. Just sayin'. We cats HISS.
