• MSNBC Calls Out Hillary for Her Flip-Flop on Trade

    Some might call it dumb luck but Hillary Clinton just happened to comment on the hugely important Trans-pacific Partnership trade deal after Congressional Democrats defeated a key provision of the deal that would’ve strengthen Obama, essentially denying him fast-track authority over the process.

    Hillary basically waited until it was safe before she threw her support behind Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

    “In order to get a deal that meets these high standards, the President should listen to and work with his allies in Congress, starting with Nancy Pelosi, who have expressed their concerns about the impact that a weak agreement would have on our workers, to make sure we get the best, strongest deal possible,” Clinton said Sunday at a major campaign event in Iowa. “And if we don’t get it, there should be no deal.”

    Everyone knows that Hillary Clinton was waiting to see which way the political wind was going to blow on this trade deal because, as MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell put it, trade policy has been “one of the biggest issues dividing the Democratic party.”

    Hillary siding with Congressional Democrats over Obama is a “huge rebuff to the President,” Mitchell noted. “However you feel about trade, the politics, the internal family politics of all of this, Hillary Clinton came down on the side of Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats against President Obama– even though she has, in the past, endorsed this very same trade deal.”

    Hillary Clinton “has been in favor of” a trade deal she now opposes, Mitchell added.

    And that’s just a classic Clinton move. Either lie about your beliefs or just wait until it’s safe to say you support or don’t support a policy.

    No wonder half the country says Hillary Clinton isn’t honest and trustworthy.
