Bill has really lost it. Now he is trying to repeat the lies Hillary told about her Bosnia trip:
Former President Clinton has added to the falsehoods surrounding his wife’s tale of her trip to Bosnia 12 years ago.
In Indiana on Thursday, Bill Clinton defended his wife’s mistake in claiming that she landed under sniper fire in Bosnia, accusing the media of treating her like “she’d robbed a bank” for confusing the facts.
The AP article even lists the facts he got wrong:
Bill Clinton has many of the facts wrong.
His wife didn’t make the sniper fire claim “one time late at night when she was exhausted.” She actually told the story several times, including during prepared remarks on foreign policy delivered the morning of March 17.
It’s also not true that she “immediately apologized for it.” Clinton has never apologized for the comments and only acknowledged that she “misspoke” a week after the March 17 speech when video of her peaceful tarmac reception emerged.
It’s also not true that she was the “first first lady since Eleanor Roosevelt to go into a combat zone” – a claim that Hillary Clinton has also made when talking about the trip. Pat Nixon traveled to Saigon during the Vietnam war and Barbara Bush went to Saudi Arabia two months before the launching of Desert Storm.
The trip also was not in 1995, but 1996.
Bill just harmed Hillary’s chances. The media was letting this story die out, but now he has reignited it. Maybe Hillary should send Bill off with Penn.
