Bill Clinton, Rusty On The Campaign Trail, Slips Up Again

- January 7, 2016

Tonight, Bill Clinton Took A Jab At Hillary’s State Department Record, Saying Only One Thing Survived Her “So Called” Reset With Russia

Bill Clinton: Only One Thing Survived Hillary’s “So Called” Russia Reset. BILL CLINTON: “She negotiated a treaty with Russia which is the only that survives our so called reset, trying to improve our relations. It’s called the New START Treaty and it basically dramatically reduces the likelihood of accidental or intentional nuclear exchange with Russia and in a dangerous, turbulent world, I think that’s a pretty big deal.” (Bill Clinton, Remarks, Dubuque, IA, 1/7/16)

Earlier Today, Bill Clinton Appeared To Take A Veiled Shot At Embroiled Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel

On The Topic Of Police Trust In Communities, Clinton Cited A Shooting In Chicago, Before Adding "You Don't Have A Riot If You Have A System For Truly Finding The Facts…" CLINTON: "We've got to do more to knit the police and the communities back together. We see on television, that child in Chicago, filled full of bullets unarmed. A mentally ill man who had no more business than a man on the moon with a gun waving a gun around he never fired walking away from police officers with thirty-three bullets fired when he was long on the ground, clearly wounded, and then we see the heroism of the police in San Bernardino, what they did in rushing to the site to save lives. When there is a community relationship with the police, they trust each other. Occasionally, when people fire guns, bad things can happen even if you don't intend it. But, you don't have to have a riot if you have a system for truly finding the facts and then figuring out together what to do. You can only do that when we trust each other again" (Bill Clinton, Remarks At Hillary Clinton Campaign Rally, Cedar Rapids, IA, 1/7/16)

The Chicago Mayor Has Sparked City-Wide Protests In The Wake Of A Cover Up Of Police Brutality

As Late As December 28, 2015, Protests In Chicago Were Calling For The Resignation Of Emanuel. "Protesters upset with Mayor Rahm Emanuel and a deadly weekend shooting by Chicago police officers took their case straight to the mayor's house Tuesday night. Outside Emanuel's home in Ravenswood, protesters shouted: 'CPD! KKK! How many kids did you kill today?'" (Mary Wisniewski and Justin Madden, "Hundreds March In Chicago A Day After Mayor's Apology Speech," WAFB, 12/30/15)

Following The Shooting Of McDonald, Emanuel Said To The Chicago City Council That The Shooting "Happened On My Watch" And "I'm Sorry." " Two weeks after a video was released of a Chicago policeman shooting a black teenager 16 times, the mayor of Chicago on Wednesday apologized for it and took some measure of responsibility. 'I'm sorry' for the shooting of Laquan McDonald, which 'happened on my watch,' Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) told the full Chicago City Council in a rare speech." ("Protests Take Place Outside Chicago Mayor's Home," The Washington Post , 12/10/15)

  • Around 200 Protestors Gathered Outside Council Chambers During Emanuel's Speech. " About 200 protesters gathered outside council chambers during Emanuel's special address to the city council and demanded to be let inside. They said one mayoral speech can't fix decades of police corruption that led to 17-year-old McDonald's death at the hands of officer Jason Van Dyke. At one point, a fight broke out." (Protestors Call For Mayor Emanuel's Resignation In Citywide Walkout," NBC Chicago , 12/9/15)

Protesters Called Emanuel's Remarks "Crocodile Tears," And Called For The Resignation Of Emanuel And His Chicago Leadership Team. "But the reaction on the street was a very different story. Emanuel cried 'crocodile tears,' one protester said. The only people who believe it will be his 'lap-dog city council,' another said, according to the Tribune. They carried signs calling on Emanuel and his leadership team to resign." (Amber Phillips, "Rahm Emanuel Is In Deep, Deep Trouble," The Washington Post , 12/10/15)

Bill's Critique Comes In Contrast To Hillary Who Told Reporters She Has Confidence In Emanuel

(Colleen Connolly, "Hillary Clinton Voices Confidence In Mayor Emanuel Amid Calls For His Resignation," NBC Chicago, 12/7/15)

EARLIER THIS WEEK, BILL CLINTON SLAMMED HILLARY'S FAILED RUSSIA RESET

At A Campaign Rally, Bill Clinton Knocked Hillary's Russia Reset Policy, Conceding It Had Few Accomplishments And Went From "Our Attempt To Do Better" To "Estrangement." BILL CLINTON: "The only thing that has survived the estrangement of the United States and Russia from our attempt to do better is something called the New START Treaty, negotiated by Hillary's State Department, which makes us much safer from this prospect from an accidental or intentional nuclear exchange. In a dangerous world, I think that's a pretty good deal." (Bill Clinton, Remarks At A Hillary Clinton Campaign Rally, Nashua, NH, 1/4/16)
