At a Florida rally earlier this week, Hillary Clinton reminded her audience that she was in New York City on September 11, 2001. Just one little problem:
Hillary Clinton incorrectly tells an audience in Florida that she was in New York on 9/11. She wasn't. Here is what she said: pic.twitter.com/Qsxv7kzz0i

Oops! Lucky for Hillary, CNN was ready and willing to run some interference:

From the story: "That's just not true." https://t.co/pqTIVGvQYn

CNN’s Steven A. Holmes writes:
That’s just not true. In her book, Hard Choices she says she arrived in the city the day after the terrorist attacks.
“After a long, sleepless night in Washington, I flew to New York with Chuck Schumer, my partner in the Senate, on a special plane operated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency,” she wrote. “The city was in lockdown, and we were the only ones in the sky that day, except for the Air Force fighters patrolling overhead.”
Clinton has recounted this same narrative many, many times, making her rally comments puzzling.
Actually, the only thing that’s puzzling about this is that Holmes finds Hillary’s inconsistency puzzling. The woman is nothing if not a pathological liar.
And CNN is nothing if not willing to “mislead” readers when Hillary benefits.
@CNNPolitics no, CNN. That would be called a LIE. Say it with me- LIE

@CNNPolitics By "misleads," you mean lied? What else is new?

@CNNPolitics the correct definition for "misleads" is – "she lied her ass off again"

@lachlan Can't wait for this chyron: "Hillary says she was in NYC on 9/11 (It's theoretically possible)"
