There certainly weren’t any shocking revelations during Wednesday night’s #DemTownHall on CNN; both candidates stuck closely to their stump speeches. If there was any genuine surprise, it was Hillary Clinton’s claim that she’d never thought of running for president while she was serving as secretary of state under President Barack Obama, who defeated her handily in her 2008 presidential run.

(CNN posted the wrong video with this tweet; hopefully they’ll get things fixed.)

Not even David Axelrod is pretending to buy that one.

  • Jeff Henderson ✓Bona Fide

    Half full of shit – twice.

    • Doc Farmer✔ᶜᵒᵛᶠᵉᶠᵉ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

      Yeah, you need to up the multiplier a bit there…

  • LinTaylor ✓vitrified

    Well, it would explain why she got her butt kicked so thoroughly the last time around.

  • ArmchairMike

    Everyone that is constantly calling the widow licking cankle monster a liar is going to have egg on their face if she ever decides to tell the truth again. How will we know if she ever does tell the truth.

    • Petrucio14

      It will be easy to tell. She would burst into flames.

    • grais

      She can never be believed. I guess that’s one of her accomplishments.

  • Jake Wilde

    Well, I wanted to believe her the first time she said she wasn’t running, but I didn’t.

  • JosephBloughs ✓Viagrafied

    Hey, Hillary is lying. Otherwise known as a day ending in “y”.

  • DevilDocNowCiv

    I want to see a montage of her saying the “I got shot at in Bosnia” lie, and every other lie that can be accompanied with a link to a story and a headline, followed by her “not trusted” rating. This should be played at least once a week, Karl Rove, holder of some Pac dough. Include Secret Server lies and a brief, killer summary of that.

    • vetgal1970

      Karl Rove could not be reached for comment. He is too busy trying to sink OUR candidates

      • TugboatPhil

        He’s very good at that.

        • vetgal1970

          He knows better than the little people. Just ask President Romney////

      • The Marathon Man

        He wants Jeb so that he can achieve gainful employment again.

      • DevilDocNowCiv

        Yes, Karl is the voice of the top dog elites. But he is putting dollars from a very big Pac into anti Hillary ads, so this is something for him.

    • Petrucio14

      I don’t think that could be a complete list of the most egregious lies and still play in as sort a time as a week, even playing 24/7.

      • DevilDocNowCiv


        I agree, but many Americans (and illegals signed up by Dems to vote-Obama won a court case allowing him to not ask for proof of citizenship on fed voter reg forms) are willing to vote for the monster, or anyone they put up. And its some of those we need to get on our side on voting day. So, rather than everything, just the ones we can make a good, if not perfect case for.

  • Please, god help us!

    Mother of God … is she just flaunting her unabashed condescention towards voters just to satisfy some pathologic perversion? Gadzooks!

  • maxgoof

    “We are the president!” — Hillary Clinton while First Lady

  • Tessa from Texas

    My poor ears!! Just a smidgen of that loud, shrill voice can almost burst the old eardrums.

  • ursafan40

    Of all the lies …..
    She’s been dreaming about being President since she was 8. Who’s she kidding.

  • tjp77

    I mean, this is just lying for no reason now. It’s totally pathological; the woman just can’t tell the truth, even when there’s nothing to be gained from lying.

    If she were a normal human being capable of basic honesty and self awareness, she would have at the very least given some saccharine anecdote about how she’s always cared about America and it’s been her dream to help people through the political process and she’s honored to make it this far, yadda yadda. You know, instead of flat-out insulting the intelligence of literally everyone on the planet.

    • jbtutor

      It shows you how badly she wanted, and wants, that money, and how linked it is to her self-worth.

  • Maxx

    It’s getting more and more difficult storing all of these lies inside my head.

  • Trump is my President

    Hillary has always thought that “she” should have been President, ever since Bill won his first term as POTUS.

    • Petrucio14

      Long before that…

  • SupplyGuy

    Wow, Obama’s hatchet man doing an axe job on Hillary. So how do you think Obama really feels about her?

    • Steve in Katy

      It doesn’t matter how he feels about her, she knows where the bodies are.

  • JR48

    Knew she was going for POTUS when she said “WE are the President”.

    Confirmed when they moved out of the White House and instead of going back to Little Rock, they moved to New York. Being a senator from Arkansas is nothing compared to being one from New York. She needed an elected political office on her resume, and she got one.

    She was not gunning for POTUS since the start of her senate campaign, she ran a senate campaign in order to go for the POTUS job. She got a taste of power while First Lady, and truth be told, her butt would still be in that building if the Constitution hadn’t kicked her out of it.

  • jbtutor

    You know what she did think about a lot?

    What she’d say when someone finally, at long last, after years of neglecting the issue, actually confronted her and asked her the question. It’s an extremely polished and well-developed answer. It’s not something she came up with on the fly at all.

    P.S. When even David Axelrod won’t shovel your BS anymore it’s getting pretty bad.

  • soxfan4evah
  • Doc Farmer✔ᶜᵒᵛᶠᵉᶠᵉ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

    Yeah, everybody on Earth BUT her knew she’d run. Which tells you that she’s either an extremely lousy liar, or extremely clueless.

    • Petrucio14

      Not mutually exclusive.

  • Doc Farmer✔ᶜᵒᵛᶠᵉᶠᵉ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

    Okay, Twitchy, can’t you make one of these articles at least a LITTLE bit challenging for us? Find an example in the past twenty years where the Hildebeest told the TRUTH, even by accident, maybe?

    • Sanchez

      “Hello, my name is Hillary Clinton.”

      • Doc Farmer✔ᶜᵒᵛᶠᵉᶠᵉ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

        Except she keeps changing her mind on THAT, too…

    Hillary Has Lost Her Indoor Voice

    BY E. WILLIAMS on FEBRUARY 3, 2016 • ( 5 )

    NEW HAMPSHIRE (The Barbed Wire) – The Clinton campaign has stopped posting fliers for upcoming campaign events here, because locals can tell where Hillary is speaking from a quarter of a mile away. It seems she has lost her indoor voice.

    Famed author Bob Woodward said recently on a news program, “Good lord, woman! Simmer down. Doesn’t she understand she is not any more persuasive when she belts it out to the rafters? With the microphone she’s holding, even if there were any people in the cheap seats, I’m pretty sure they could hear her.”

    David Thompson, who attended a Hillary event last month, has had tinnitis, or ringing of the ears, since hearing her speech. “If she could just dial it back about 70% that would be great. We all get the point she’s making when she talks but, when she cranks it up, we start losing our concentration on what she’s shouting and start worrying that our ears might start to bleed at any moment.”

    Thompson was on the way to take his wife Sarah, 34, to get fitted for her first set of hearing aids as a result of having attended the same event. The couple’s 12 year-old son, Aaron, was in the backseat watching a video on learning American Sign Language so he can better communicate with his parents in the near future.

    Even on television appearances, Hillary is shouting when she answers questions. TV producers always have to nearly mute the studio microphone so her voice sounds as if it is at a normal, conversational level.

    Reporters travelling with the Clinton campaign have started wearing ear plugs, covered with noise-cancelling headphones to protect their hearing. FNC’s Ed Henry asked Hillary why she feels the need to shout, and she told him, “IT WAS TOO HARD TURNING IT ON AND OFF, SO I JUST SHOUT ALL THE TIME NOW. PLUS, IT CONVEYS A TONE OF SERIOUSNESS ABOUT THE ISSUES THAT I HOPE THE VOTERS PICK UP ON.” Yeah, I think they got it.

    • grais

      You’d think someone would have explained to her exactly the purpose of a microphone. She has always screamed into them. So has Palin. It’s painful.

  • Peggy Bundy

    She never thought she’d “Have To” run for President. She just figured it would be given to her. Because, Vagina or some shit.

  • nomorelies343

    The constant liar

    • Arttie the Deplorable

      On the positive side, our Kankles is consistent in this, depending on the definition of is is .

  • Doc Farmer✔ᶜᵒᵛᶠᵉᶠᵉ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

    Might want to pull out the rubber gloves for this one, @WilliamAmos:disqus …

  • bifski

    liar…then don’t…report to the nearest fed pen

  • Hotlanta Mike
  • Arttie the Deplorable

    Thinking about it since she put those striped bell bottoms on, one kankle at a time.

  • Hotlanta Mike
  • Hotlanta Mike
  • Sanchez

    Clinton, either one of them, seems fully incapable of telling the truth.

  • ee1774

    Hillary: “Yeah……I ran in 2008……..Got my ass handed to me by some nobody from Chicago. And then I figured ‘Ehhhh……what’s the point’. No, seriously! I was too busy with yoga and ‘grandma-stuff’…..” And then, about a year ago, I thought: “Hey! Ya know what’d be a hoot?”

  • syvyn11

    She has thought of nothing else since Jan 20, 2001.

  • surfdog

    Down the rabbit hole we go .

  • NeoDawg

    In fairness – she did say “I never thought I would do this” which may be yet another variant of ClintonSpeak. She might have been referring to having to actually run and answer tough questions, rather than simply being anointed.

    • Russ

      Along those lines, thought implies mulling something over to come to a decision (or conclusion). Ergo, she never thought about it, and never had to, because she always knew she was going to run.

  • globalcrap

    Ever since that alien residence in our American White House beat her , It’s been driving her crazy bat that a foreigner beat her.

  • Jerry Shelton

    Well, she has convinced me of one thing; Climate change is real, she should stop spewing so much CO2.
    Her new biggest lie of the week.

  • schveiguy

    I think she is telling the truth. I mean, why would you store government secrets on an unsecure server if you thought you were going to run for president and have that laundry dragged out there?

    • Petrucio14

      She assumed she was above the law and that her loyal drones would simply arrange the coronation. FOIA is for peons.

  • Petrucio14

    Does she truly believe that history started yesterday? There is ample evidence that her ambition to be POTUS started long ago. Maybe not since she was in 7th grade as she has repeatedly said, but certainly her ambition was there when her horndog husband repeatedly cheated on her and she not only accepted his reprehensible behavior but also enabled it by pummeling the women who justly accused him. She is a shameless opportunist, over and above all. Even her rampant criminality testifies to her overweening ambition.

  • grais

    I’ll guess she was about 8 yrs old when she first thought about it. By 16 she had the basic plan. She went to college and found the like-minded guy she needed for her plan to have a hope, and the rest is history.

  • JohnFLob

    Hillary even now is not running for POTUS. She is only walking rapidly, for someone her age.

  • Wanderer

    This is what we call a pathological liar, children.

  • marcus tullius cicero

  • forgetyoutooo

    Hillary has been running for President since day one of Bill Clinton’s presidency.

  • John Galt

    ‘Yall misunderstood her comment. When she said that she “never thought she’d do this”, she meant that she never thought she’d have to stand in front of you ig’nant unwashed masses, having to convince them of her greatness and inevitability.

    She’s ALWAYS been running for POTUS. That’s the deal that she made with Bubba…she’d support him throughout his slimy philandering days if he would help her run for POTUS. Why else would she stay married to someone she detests on a personal level? They haven’t slept in the same house since they left the White House.

  • CrystalDawn0603

    Does she remember anything she says? I mean, I know she’s easily confused, but come on!

  • Dromig10

    She’s been running for President since the Watergate Hearings and hooking her wagon to Bill Clinton’s star.

  • constitutionminded

    She has been running since the stone age.
