Hillary hammers ‘fake news’ in 2nd post-election speech, then gets pounded by her own massive hypocrisy

Op-ed views and opinions expressed are solely those of the author and do not necessarily represent the views of BizPac Review.

On Thursday, Hillary Clinton gave just her second public post-election speech, this time to Congress to honor retiring Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid.

After complimenting the retiring senator, Clinton couldn’t resist the opportunity to toss out yet another excuse for her November election defeat to Donald Trump – you guessed it – the “epidemic” of “fake news.”

Clinton called on Congress to stop the “epidemic of malicious fake news and false propaganda that flooded social media over the past year” because it is, unlike – apparently – things like Islamic extremism, a “danger to the nation.”

Likely referring to Edgar Welch’s firing of an AR-15 rifle inside Washington pizzeria Comet Ping Pong on Sunday in response to a fake news story about Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta, running a child sex ring there, Clinton said, “It’s now clear that so-called fake news can have real-world consequences.”

“It’s a danger that must be addressed and addressed quickly,” Clinton said. “Bipartisan legislation is making its way through Congress to boost the government’s response to foreign propaganda and Silicon Valley is starting to grapple with the challenge and threat of fake news.”

Predictably, Twitter users were eager to point out the former Democratic nominee’s massive hypocrisy.
