“I don’t want any excuses,” Clinton said at a campaign stop in Cleveland. “I’m a kind of ‘no excuse’ person.” And the whole world laughed.
Clinton made the remark as she championed government programs to make available more vocational and technical education opportunities for out of work Americans.
“I want everybody who’s willing to work to be prepared,” Clinton said. “I don’t want excuses. I’m a kind of no excuse person. If you are willing to do the work, I want to make sure that we’ve got an economy that will produce the jobs, and then I want to make four-year college affordable.”
But claiming she’s a “no excuse person” was just too much for many Americans observers of her political career over the years.
You know, because of all of her excuses.
Like the ones about her emails at the State Department…
And the ones about the Americans who died in Benghazi, Libya…
And the ones about her shady personal revenue streams…
And the list goes on, way back to all those crazy excuses she’s made for her philandering husband.
But we should probably cut her some slack. After all, it’s hard getting along in the world when you’ve been dogged by a “vast right-wing conspiracy” for nearly your entire adult life.
