Hillary Clinton is aware that the public perceives her as a liar, so maybe her campaign figured if they prefaced a statement with a particular promise all would be well, as evidenced by a fundraising email this morning:

Nothing says “totally telling the truth” like prefacing a statement with “I’m going to be honest”:

Careful not to mock Hillary or she might put you in her #BasketOfDeplorables.
@jamestaranto Beware of honesty warning…

@jamestaranto In Hillary's case "let me be honest" constitutes a trigger warning.

@jamestaranto alert me when her "going to be honest" transitions to "now, I actually am honest"
