Hannity declares defining ‘moment’ of the military forum, but it’s probably not what you think

The most important moment during NBC’s “Commander-in-Chief Forum” didn’t belong to Donald Trump, as far as Sean Hannity is concerened.

For the Fox News host, the defining moment during the presidential forum centered on Hillary Clinton saying the Iraq War and her support for it was a “mistake.”

“I think that the decision to go to war in Iraq was a mistake, and I have said that my voting to give President [George W.] Bush that authority was from my perspective my mistake,” Clinton said Wednesday night before an audience of military members, adding that “we must learn what led us down that path so that it never happens again.”

Hannity added a little more perspective to what did eventually happen.

“She voted for the war,” Hannity said. “She voted to pull out early. It created a vacuum for ISIS to emerge with the financial backing of the oil that they got out of Iraq. …

“If you are the mother of one of up to 5,000 people that were killed, and here is the woman that wants to be president – ‘Oh I made a mistake, but it’s important that we learn from the mistake.’  You have a dead child, you have a child that lost their limbs, have been disfigured as a result of her decision. Wow. I can’t believe that’s not front and center.”

The reaction on social media suggests that folks have grown tired of Clinton’s growing list of mistakes… and her callous attitude toward those who ultimately pay for her mistakes.
