WASHINGTON – After President Trump officially kicked off his 2020 campaign, his continuously scandal-plagued 2016 foe couldn’t resist mocking the president by throwing shade at Infowars.
Trump mentioned twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took a shot at the president Wednesday after former gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum suggested Clinton “must be EXHAUSTED” after running through” Trump’s mind for so long.
“I can handle it,” the former secretary of state replied. “Blessed with stamina. And thankfully I didn’t stay up late last night watching InfoWars…”
Trump slammed “crooked” Clinton at the rally for her use of the word “deplorables” and implied she was guilty of “collusion”.
“The only collusion was committed by the Democrats, the fake news media and their operatives and the people who funded the phony dossier, Crooked Hillary Clinton and the DNC,” he said. “If you want to know how the system is rigged, just compare how they came after us for three years with everything they had, versus the free pass they gave to Hillary and her aides.”.”
The president also brought up Clinton’s use of an unauthorized, private email server during her time as secretary of state — insisting there was a double standard and exclaiming “it’s the electric chair for Trump” if he had done the same.
Infowars fired back at the former secretary of state after she slighted the outlet, noting, “Hillary Clinton Admits She Watches Infowars As She’s Covering Up Pedophile Rings.”
The Infowars’ headline references a newly surfaced report revealing State Department cover-ups of pedophile networks during Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State.
NBC News obtained internal documents last week detailing an ongoing investigation at the State Department involving eight cases of alleged misconduct by state department workers, contractors and a United States ambassador which occurred during Clinton’s tenure.
The ambassador under investigation “routinely ditched his protective security detail in order to solicit sexual favors from both prostitutes and minor children,” an Inspector General memo from last October states. A high-ranking official at the State Departed requested investigators “cease the investigation.”
Clinton is also accused of illegally accepting thousands of dollars from the notorious NXIVM sex cult, whose founder Keith Raniere was found guilty Wednesday of federal sex trafficking, during her 2008 campaign
Former member of NXIVM Mark Vicente, a documentary filmmaker who is accused of keeping women as sex slaves, claimed in testimony last month NXIVM benefactor Clare Bronfman bought influence for the alleged sex cult by illegally funneling thousands of dollars into Clinton’s campaign coffers — far in excess of legal limits to contributions — to “curry favor” with former Secretary of State.
NXIVM members and their families plunked down a total $29,000 for Hillary’s campaign that year according to elections records, the New York Post reports. At least three members of the cult, including Bronfman, are also donors to the Clinton Global Initiative.
Leaders of the cult, including Raniere and actress Allison Mack, were also operating the group as a cover for a “secret society” that revolved around sexual intercourse and sexual slavery, and a sex trafficking operation, the federal government alleges.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, Infowars radio host Alex Jones “Bill Clinton rape” T-shirts and offered $5000 to anyone who shouted, “Bill Clinton is a racist” while wearing the shirt.
Clinton later gave a speech blasting Trump for adhering to vast “alt-right conspiracy” like InfoWars, saying that Trump “treats the National Enquirer like it is gospel.”
“It’s what happens when you listen to the radio host Alex Jones, who claims that 9/11 and the Oklahoma City bombings were inside jobs,” she said.
