Bill Clinton Hypocrisy

Decent Essays
Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, although both hold opposing governmental views they convey a similar anti-establishment message. This message, that defies traditional politics, continues to resonate in many voters’ minds as seen by the victories of Bernie, Hillary’s opponent, and the Republican candidate Donald Trump. Why is this movement surging throughout America? One very important reason includes the general disgust of the hypocrisy, manipulation, and lies that corrupt our political system. Hillary Clinton’s actions reek of these political sins. These characteristics must lead American voters not to vote for Mrs. Hillary Clinton. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton came under scrutiny during former president Bill Clinton’s sexual …show more content…
For many, this silencing proves insignificant because it will not directly affect her actions in the White House. However, her advocation of the women’s rights movement contradicts her actions. As she continues to boast of her gender and speak out for the rights of women in campaign speeches, do her actions verify her words? No, her silencing of Ms. Broaddrick displays this hypocrisy. These juxtaposing ideas show her lack of concern on the issue. These actions, with no attempt to reconcile with the rape victims, show the lack of concern she will continue to show throughout her career. Thus, her call for a protection of women’s rights will just be another empty campaign promise. Again, Mrs. Clinton finds herself speaking out against something while her actions paint a different picture. Here, she manipulates her support by rallying against the success of Wall Street companies, while her campaign benefits from such success. Hillary Clinton, herself, cannot even articulate a logical answer to why she receives large amounts of money from Goldman Sachs while bashing their industry. Time and again, her opponents and moderators ask this question and she side steps or stumbles on it (Why Can’t Hillary). This is just another example of her hypocrisy and manipulation of the American …show more content…
Clinton’s are untruthful, but why should she not be our President? The Executive Branch is supposed to execute the laws of the land; if she displays a lack of concern for our laws, she will not sufficiently execute them. Likewise, our nation’s justice system is based on honesty. If a common citizen is expected to be honest in court and in their everyday lives, our President should also uphold and reflect such honesty, as is expected of them. Mrs. Clinton has not done so; rather, she has shown a disregard for the law and opposition to her own words. Because her hypocritical, manipulating, and deceiving actions oppose the duties of the Executive Branch, she cannot represent our just nation as

    When people are proven wrong, they are more likely to viciously hold onto their misinformation and wrongness than change their minds. This is the fundamental problem with humans. Some know this as pride, others call it hubris, and even more call it stubbornness. The fact is, excessive pride to the point of corruption is no stranger to governments who dig their heels in when people call them untrustworthy. Governments are most likely to look out for themselves and their special interests when they are challenged by the people, as proven in the election for President of the United States in 2016.…

    However, Americans believe that polarization exists due to misinterpretation of election results, political activists, the media’s portrayal of politics, and confusion of the people’s choice. The factors to incorporate into the American perspective on polarization include the media’s influence, political ideologies, and interpreting the election results. American citizens, especially millennials, act out of greed and are driven by self-gain. “This pole proves that millennials have totally incoherent political views” shows that citizens do not intentionally see politics as polarized but rather as an act of self-interest.

    The author observes that not only did the mainstream media get it wrong but it showed how the influence of the mainstream media has declined. With a lot of biased coverage, the media had put a lot effort at throwing the election at Hillary Clinton, by giving her unlimited and positive coverage, but surprisingly, she still lost in the elections. The author argues that there is only two steps the media can take after what happened in the U.S elections; the mainstream media would decide to match on with their biasness which would eventually make them irrelevant or the media should be honest, accept their flaws and change. The author said, he had no luck when it came to getting a person from the media ask them if they acknowledged their biasness in the elections. He claims that, most likely the media will never notice their biasness because they are very saturated in it.…

He, as in most of his commercials, addresses this failure and the resulting repercussions felt by the American people, even going as far as using “it’s the economy, stupid!” as a key slogan for the campaign to attack to economic downfall Bush was responsible for (Second).
