Hillary Clinton burst out in empathetic laughter when Sandra Bland’s mother, Geneva Ridgefield, said that her own husband has made so many mistakes that it would be difficult for her to be held accountable for them.
In the clip, flagged by the Weekly Standard, Ridgefield said that young people “across the country” are concerned about Clinton’s dishonesty.
“I’ve been listening to people, the young people in general, and they say, ‘Well, I don’t know, how can you vote for Hillary, she lied,’” Ridgefield said, and proceeded to defend Clinton. “I say, ‘Girl, did she lie to you?’”
Her remarks were met with laughter from the crowd. Ridgefield said that wives should not be held accountable for their husband’s actions and defended her by saying that she apologized for her husband’s errors.
“You’re talking about something that happened when her husband was the president because she was first lady at that time, but she has apologized for those actions,” Ridgefield said.
Ridgefield then joked that her own husband errs so frequently that it would be difficult to hold her accountable, to which Clinton laughed heartily.
“I will tell you if I was to be held accountable for everything my man did—Whoa! We’d have a problem,” Ridgefield said and was met with uproarious laughter.
Aside from her husband’s infidelity and alleged involvement in “20-plus” sex scandals, Clinton is also involved in numerous investigations into her use of a private server to transmit classified information as Secretary of State. In addition, Clinton is being investigated for her failure “to adequately protect U.S. installations,” among other charges, in the deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya.
Clinton has consistently displayed low honesty and trustworthy numbers. A March Washington Post-ABC News national poll found that only 37 percent of people called Clinton is honest and trustworthy.
