Who would’ve thunk: Hillary Clinton lies.
Such was the case during her DNC speech. You’d think her lies would be confined to lies about political policy, but that was hardly the only thing she lied about. During Hillary Clinton’s speech at the DNC, she told a story of a poor disabled young girl bound to a wheelchair who couldn’t attend school due to her disability. According to Hillary, she helped this young girl attend school.
“I went to work for the Children’s Defense Fund, going door-to-door in New Bedford, Massachusetts, on behalf of children with disabilities who were denied the chance to go to school.” she said. She pandered to the religious community, claiming that she was inspired by her mother’s Methodist faith. I never saw Hillary’s life as the most Christ-like myself.
Who knew Hillary Clinton was such a philanthropist? Well, she isn’t.
Unfortunately for Hillary, a local New Bedford radio station knows the mayor from 1973. His name is John “Jack” Markey, and he is an 81-year-old life-long Democrat with a great memory. So, the station contacted him about Hillary’s poor disabled girl story, and he said it’s a total lie made out of whole cloth.
Mayor John “Jack” Markey told Chris McCarthy of WBSM 1420AM in Massachusetts that back in 1973, New Bedford had a budget for vans and other services for disabled students. In fact, Mayor Markey remembers being compelled to learn more about wheelchair-bound students after a paraplegic citizen challenged him. The former mayor said:
“I actually spent an entire day in 1973 in a wheelchair to better understand the challenges they face everyday. Soon after that, we were cutting out sidewalks for wheelchairs and doing things in New Bedford before the laws ever compelled us to.” [via WBSM]
So, in New Bedford in 1973, vans were already taking disabled kids to school. Therefore, there was no need to “build a coalition.” New Bedford was already doing the improvements to accommodate handicapped folks, proving Hillary is lying about getting something passed in congress for disabled people. Again, here is Hillary, making up a whole story of lies just so Americans will think she is a true humanitarian.
It’s just another day, another Hillary Clinton lie.
Over 70% of Americans view her as untrustworthy (including most Democrats), and that’s a title she’s rightly earned for herself.
The legal system won’t punish Hillary for her lies, but we can. All you have to do is vote against Hillary in November.
