Former White House adviser (to President Obama) and current Democratic strategist David Axelrod recently sent out a tweet suggesting that Hillary Clinton should have considered skipping her third and final presidential debate with Donald Trump. Mr. Axelrod responded to Trump’s own suggestion that both candidates submit to a drug test before their next debate by tweeting: “You have to wonder if @HillaryClinton will/should reconsider next debate, given the depths to which this has sunk.”
That would certainly have been a gesture of transparency and accountability on her part, would it not? Yes, would’ve put those health questions to bed once and for all just before the election, too. Other than that, it really wouldn’t have mattered much, as Trump was routinely forced to spend most of his time debating the “moderators,” anyway.
Team Clinton’s inclination to hide, cover up, obfuscate, deny, and prevaricate is breathtaking in its scope. “Tricky Dick” Nixon couldn’t crack this lineup. He wouldn’t be first, second or third-string. He’d be lucky to make the practice squad of this murderers-row of duplicitous deceivers.
