Hillary Clinton’s latest attempt to attack Donald Trump has seen her slam him for daring to disagree with American generals. However, she clearly has forgotten what she said herself in 2007…
At the presidential forum on Wednesday night, Trump brought up U.S. military generals.
“The generals under Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have not been successful. Under the leadership of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton the generals have been reduced to rubble, reduced to a point where it is embarrassing for our country…” he said, according to IJ Review. “I have great faith in the military. I have great faith in certain of the commanders, certainly. But I have no faith in Hillary Clinton or the leadership.”
During her press conference the next day, Clinton claimed Trump “trash talked American generals” and slammed him as “unqualified to be commander in chief.”
However, footage has just surfaced proving that it is Clinton who has no respect for American generals. On September 11, 2007, General David Petraeus, the senior American commander in Iraq, testified before the U.S. Senate about the troop surge in Iraq and there he pushed back against the troop withdrawal favored by Democrats. Clinton, who was still a senator and running for president at the time, disrespected Petraeus to his face and called him a liar.
“You have been made the de facto spokesmen for what many of us believe to be a failed policy,” she said. “Despite what I view is your rather extraordinary efforts in your testimony both yesterday and today, I think that the reports that you provide to us really require a willing suspension of disbelief.”
