Hillary: Too old, too naive, too evil? All of the above?

As the presumptive presidential nominee for the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton's qualifications to serve as president are being carefully scrutinized in some quarters, excepting by far-left liberals who would endorse a telephone pole if said pole leaned sufficiently left!

HBO host Bill Maher would normally be expected to back Hillary to the hilt. However, in recent remarks, Maher suggested that she was too elderly to understand e-mails and laws in place to safeguard confidential, secret documents from security violations.

As reported:

On Wednesday's broadcast of MSNBC's "Hardball," HBO's "Real Time" host Bill Maher argued that presumptive Democratic presidential nominee former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's email use was the case of "an elderly person" who "probably just didn't understand that much what she was doing."

Maher said, "As far as the emails go, I think mostly what that is, is an elderly person, and again, we're not bashing the elderly here. They have every of right to run for president. But as far as technology goes, they're not great at it. I'm not great at it. So, I think she probably just didn't understand that much what she was doing."

The obvious question dodged by Maher: If understanding email security is too intellectually vexing for Clinton, does it make any sense whatsoever to even consider vesting her with the responsibilities and authority assigned to the Commander-in-Chief, including the so-called "Nuclear codes?"

In yet another sharp questioning of Clinton's intellectual prowess, FBI Director suggested that Clinton may be too naive to understand classified markings.

As reported:

FBI Director James Comey said Thursday that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may not have been "sophisticated enough" to understand the classified markings on emails she sent and received, which explains why did didn't know she was breaking the letter of the law.

While some might choose to give Hillary a "pass" because of her gender, age or limited technical knowledge, others will be more unforgiving based on legitimate concerns for national security.

Rep. Darrell Issa(R-CA) is one such person. As reported, Rep. Issa said the following:

"We are in a crisis because Hillary Clinton, if the voters do not stop her, will be the next President of the United States. She will, in fact, on Day One say, "Pardon me," and she'll mean it. She'll have pardoned herself. She will have, in fact, gone from being a criminal involved in a criminal enterprise — obviously, Clinton Cash depicted that — and somebody who flaunted the security laws, the privacy laws, the presidential and the Federal Records Act, and gotten away with it."

Given the seriousness of the issue, the remarks by Maher and Comey appear to be lame  excuses for the  Clinton who seems most qualified to be a stay-at-home grandma  assigned the desk of tending to her beloved grand children.

Bottom Line Darrell Issa is spot on in saying that Hillary is "somebody who flaunted the security laws, the privacy laws, the presidential and the Federal Records Act,.."

Now, it is up to we the people to stop the criminal Hillary from invading the Oval Office! ESR
