Hillary Goes FEMA

The Hillary campaign in Iowa was forced to admit that it planted a global warming question in Newton, Iowa, Tuesday during a town hall meeting to discuss clean energy:

After Clinton spoke, a student in the crowd was invited to pose a question. "As a young person, I'm worried about the long-term effects of global warming. How does your plan combat climate change?" the student asked.

Clinton replied: "Well, you should be worried. You know, I find as I travel around Iowa that it's usually young people who ask me about global warming."

The cover was blown on the orchestrated nature of the exchange a few days later when the Grinnell college website reported that one of its students, Muriel Gallo-Chasanoff, had been encouraged to ask the question by a Clinton employee. "One of the senior staffers told me what to ask," she said.

Clinton's spokesman admitted the question had been arranged but said: "This is not standard policy and will not be repeated again."
But after claiming planting questions isn't standard policy, another case of the Hillary campaign planting questions came to light at an Iowa campaign event in April.

This reinforces Hillary's critics accusations that Hillary is a double-talker who refuses to give straight answers to tough questions. Planting questions is inexcusable, especially coming after FEMA's fake news conference which cost two officials their jobs.

Guess what? Hillary Clinton is the only candidate that has these 4 attributes: integrity, honor, patriotism, and compassion. I dare you to find another candidate with these attributes. I got $35 in the bank that says you won't be able to find one. You can count on it.
