Former Florida Governor Charlie Crist, Republican turned Independent turned Democrat, is running in Florida’s 13th congressional district against Republican incumbent Rep. David Jolly.
As Crist participated in a debate against Jolly on Monday night, he was asked if he was going to vote for his party’s nominee, Hillary Clinton. Not only did he say yes, he also went into an unprompted list as to the reasons why. When he described Hillary Clinton as “honest,” the crowd erupted into laughter and boos.
“I think she’s been a very good secretary of state, a very good senator from the state of New York. The thing I like most about her is she is steady. I believe she is strong. I believe she is honest.”
There’s a reason for the laughter and boos. Honest and Hillary Clinton simply don’t mix.
Near the beginning of Hillary Clinton’s campaign in 2015, Quinnipiac released the results of a poll which asked people to name the top word that entered their mind when they heard the name Hillary Clinton. The results were damning.
The word topping the list used to describe Hillary was “liar.” In fact, that word was given by 178 respondents. In second place was “dishonest,” which was used 123 times. “Untrustworthy” was the third most used word to describe Hillary. It was given 93 times.
No wonder the crowd booed and laughed when Charlie Crist described Hillary Clinton as honest. They get it.
