You can’t make this stuff up. During a press conference Monday morning, a reporter asked Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton if she was “concerned” that the bombings in New York and New Jersey over the weekend were attempts by ISIS or “maybe the Russians” to swing the election in Donald Trump’s favor:
“Are you concerned that this weekend’s attacks or potential incidents in the coming weeks might be an attempt by ISIS or ISIS sympathizers, or really any other group, maybe the Russians, to influence the presidential race in some way, and presumably try to drive votes to Donald Trump, who is, as you’ve said before, widely seen as perhaps being somebody who they would be more willing to—or see as an easier person to be against?” the reporter asked.
It should be noted that by the time this intrepid reporter asked her question, the FBI had already identified 28-year-old Ahmed Khan Rahami, an Afghan-born naturalized U.S. citizen, as the bombing suspect. In other words, there was absolutely no reason for her to ponder if the bombings could have been carried out by the Russians — other than to add fuel to Clinton’s paranoid fantasy that Trump is working in collusion with Vladimir Putin to rig the election.
There’s nothing like watching liberal media bias in action.
