Hillary Sends Out A 1:43 a.m. Tweet In Spanish – The Internet Erupted

According to Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s Twitter profile, it is easy for followers to recognize which messages were personally written by her.

“Tweets from Hillary signed –H,” the page states.

Assuming this is still the case, many Twitter users were confused by the timing and language of one recently published post.

Response to the tweet, which was reportedly posted at 1:43 a.m. local time, was mixed.

A few responded to her message with a Spanish expression of gratitude.

Other Spanish reactions were less friendly, however, including one user’s derogatory description of Clinton as less than fluent in the language…

…and another who used the Spanish word for liar:

Her fluency and authenticity were questioned repeatedly by social media critics.

Motivation aside, others found it difficult to believe that Clinton was awake, speaking Spanish, and tweeting at nearly 2 a.m. during a busy primary campaign.

Ouch! This EPIC Goof By The DNC Could Be The Biggest Fail Yet For Hillary’s Clueless Party

Right there, for all to see, prominently displayed on the Democrats’ web page reaching out to “Veterans and Military Families,” was a photo intended to show how the party of Hillary Clinton understands and supports U.S. service men and women. However, as the publication Military Times noted of the image depicting military veterans, the folks at the website Democrats.org got their countries mixed up:

Democrats’ election outreach efforts to veterans may need to start with a refresher course on what U.S. troops look like.

For starters, they don’t wear Polish military uniforms.

Twitter users were quick to pick up on the epic “Polish” goof by the Democrat National Committee (DNC), which many would say shows just how out of touch Democrats are when it comes to recognizing the true nature and value of America’s war fighters.

As the article in Military Times points out, the DNC had originally used a White House photo of President Obama greeting Polish military veterans during a 2011 trip to Warsaw. “The president had been cropped out, but faces of four elderly veterans wearing European-style military uniforms were visible above several paragraphs asserting the party’s ‘commitment to America’s veterans.’ The Polish military’s White Eagle insignia was clear on the headgear of two of the veterans.”

When Military Times alerted the heretofore clueless website managers of their photo faux pas, the image was quickly changed. Social media users, however, were not so quick to stop the snark about the egregious error.

We’ve heard no word yet on whether the head of the DNC, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, intends to push for Polish military vets to receive VA benefits or possibly even have U.S. voting rights…as long as they pledge to support the party’s nominee. (Okay, that’s a bit of Friday humor.)

Watch: Angry Sheriff Clarke Just Had This EPIC Response To Dems’ Reaction To On-Air Killings

It took only a matter of hours after the horrific on-air killings of two TV journalist in Virginia for top Democrats to try to politicize the tragedy. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and others wasted no time in calling for greater federal gun control after a former colleague of two employees of WDBJ-TV shot and killed them at point-blank range.

Speaking with Sean Hannity Thursday night, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke threw the book at liberals for what he called their shameless attempt to exploit the shocking murders.

“Shame on the left, shame on the Democrats for once again exploiting misery and tragedy to pursue a political agenda,” Clarke said on the Fox news show Hannity. “Shame on the president of the United States to invoke terrorism into this horrific incident that happened in Virginia.”

The outspoken lawman who has consistently criticized Obama on a number of issues, including the president’s handling of racial strife, pointed to the U.S. Constitution in his argument that Democrats are trying to use the grief surrounding the Virginia killings as a motivator to restrict liberty.

“This document, the Constitution, protects freedom and liberty. It does not prevent horrific acts done by human beings,” Sheriff Clarke told Hannity.

And what would the popular law enforcement figure do to try to prevent gun violence, without trying to restrict access and ownership of personal firearms?

“You identify the bad guys, you arrest the bad guys, you adjudicate them and once they’re convicted, you lock them up for the longest period of time allowed by law,” Clarke asserted.

By clicking on the video above, you can watch the exchange between Sean Hannity and Sheriff David Clarke in which the Wisconsin lawman sharply criticized President Obama’s reaction to the murders that shocked viewers who saw them on live TV:

“This was a chance for the president to bring the country together, and once again, the divider-in-chief goes out and further separates us.”

Do you agree with Sheriff Clarke’s criticism of Obama, Hillary and others? Join the conversation by leaving your comment below.

The Top Three Words People Associate With Hillary Might Spell The End Of Her Candidacy

The first words that came to mind when voters thought of Hillary Clinton were “liar,” “dishonest,” and untrustworthy,” according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.

Voters were asked to relate “the first word that comes to mind” when they thought of Clinton, Donald Trump and Jeb Bush.

The poll, released Thursday, found that 178 people thought of the word “liar” when thinking of Clinton, who has been dogged by a burgeoning investigation into her use of a private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State. “Dishonest” was mentioned by 123 respondents and “untrustworthy” by 93 people. An additional 113 responses were spread among “crook,” “untruthful,” “criminal,” “deceitful,” “email,” “corrupt” and “crooked,” for a total of 507 responses questioning Clinton’s credibility.

Trump’s word list was topped by “arrogant” and “blowhard.” The word most associated with Jeb Bush was “Bush.”

Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll, offered an analysis of the numbers.

“Donald Trump soars; Ben Carson rises; Jeb Bush slips and some GOP hopefuls seem to disappear. Trump proves you don’t have to be loved by everyone, just by enough Republicans to lead the GOP pack,” he said.

“On the Democratic side, Secretary Hillary Clinton continues her slide while Sen. Bernie Sanders continues to narrow the gap,” Malloy added. “But the real news is the man who isn’t there – yet. Vice President Joseph Biden has the best appeal in general election matchups against top Republicans. Note to Biden: They like you, they really like you, or they like you more than the others.”

In terms of presidential matchups, the poll said that if Biden were the Democratic candidate, he would beat Trump by 48 percent to 40 percent, Bush by 45 percent to 39 percent, and Sen. Marco Rubio, D-FL, 44 percent to 41 percent. Clinton would beat Trump by 45 percent to 41 percent. She would beat Bush by 42 percent to 40 percent. And she would top Rubio by 44 percent to 43 percent.

The poll interviewed 1,563 respondents over five days last week.

Trump Has A Very Surprising Distant Relative Who Happens To Be A Presidential Candidate

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump may not be as much of the political outsider as purported in interviews and campaign stomps. He is actually related to royalty – and is a distant cousin of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

As it turns out, both are related to John of Gaunt, a 14th century royal. Gaunt, who was the 1st Duke of Lancaster, was the son of King Edward III. According to MyHeritage, Trump is related through his mother, Mary Anne Macleod, back to his 17th great-grandfather, John Beaufort, while Clinton is related through her father and the Rodham family, back to her 17th great-grandmother, Joan Beaufort. The two candidates are 19th cousins. Neither has commented on this fact.

The Duke of Lancaster had the Beaufort children through his third wife, Katherine Swynford. Swynford had been his mistress, but later married Gaunt. His son by his first wife was King Henry IV.

The royal family was most known for their participation in the infamous War of the Roses, where descendants all tried to claim the throne. Henry VII became the first Tudor king after he defeated Richard III in battle.

Having two presidential candidates who are related isn’t new. The website We Are All Related shows that all of the U.S. presidents, except for one, are related. The common ancestor was John “Lackland” Plantagenet, who was the King of England in 1166. The project, completed by 10-year-old BridgeAnne d’Avignon, showed the only president who does not share the royal ancestry with the other presidents was President Martin Van Buren.
