Democrat New Hampshire Governor and U.S. Senate candidate Maggie Hassan is in a tight race with Kelly Ayotte and is a major supporter of scandal-plagued Democrat presidential Hillary Clinton.
But as avid of a supporter that Maggie Hassan is of Hillary Clinton, even she completely avoids answering the very simple and straight-forward question, “Is Hillary Clinton honest and trustworthy?”
In an interview with CNN’s Manu Raju on Tuesday, Maggie Hassan was given the opportunity to answer the question three times. Each time, she deflected by answering a different question that wasn’t even asked.
“Do you think that she’s honest and trustworthy?” Raju asked.
“I support Hillary Clinton for the presidency because her experience and her record demonstrate that she’s qualified to hold the job,” Hassan said.
“Do you think she’s honest?” Raju asked.
“She has a critical, critical plan, among others, for making college more affordable,” she said.
“But do you think that she’s trustworthy?” Raju asked.
“I think that she has demonstrated a commitment always to something beyond herself, bigger than herself,” she said.
Hassan obviously knows that the overwhelming majority of Americans (64 percent in the most recent CNN poll, for example), including voters in New Hampshire, don’t think Hillary Clinton is anywhere near honest and trustworthy, as all polling indicates. Therefore, lying and saying Hillary is honest probably wouldn’t go over very well with voters.
Hilariously, Manu Raju reports that after the embarrassing interview, Hassan’s campaign team clarified her comments, saying that she does, in fact, think Hillary Clinton is honest.
Sure she does. Then why didn’t she just say so? After all, Hassan was given three opportunities.
