Sunday’s townhall debate between Democratic Party Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican Party Presidential candidate Donald Trump was memorable for a lot of exchanges, but this one may be symptomatic of a larger medical problem of Clinton’s.
When Trump brought up President Barack Obama’s (D) red line about Syrian President Bashar al Assad’s chemical weapon use and then proceeded to retreat from it when al Assad called his bluff, he said Clinton played a role in that failure through her position as Secretary of State at the time.
Clinton responded by saying that she was not Secretary of State at that time; she’d already left the office.
I was gone. At some point, we need to do some fact-checking here.
However, Clinton, in fact, ran the State Department for Obama from 2009 until 2013, during which time Assad continued to use chemical weapons.
This kind of memory lapse isn’t useful for our President to be having, nor is the rate at which she’s experiencing them.
