Teddy bears and flowers, both bound to bring some brightness to someone. That's the idea behind the American Cancer Society's annual Daffodil Days, that helps to distribute a little boost to local cancer patients.
Charles: HILLARY LIE And I have spent my adult life working to even the odds for people who’ve had the odds stacked against them. I helped break down barriers to education for poor and disabled children as a young lawyer, fought for health insurance for all and have been committed to that since my days as first lady. DEBUNKED This assertion is patently false. In 1975, Clinton was appointed to represent a man accused of raping a twelve year old girl. Now, of course, the act of defending someone accused of a heinous crime should never be held against the defendant’s attorney. But the defense one chooses to deploy is something for which the attorney is responsible. In an affidavit filed with the court in the 1975 case, Clinton sought to discredit the twelve year old victim. “[T]he complainant is emotionally unstable with a tendency to seek out older men and to engage in fantasizing,” Clinton wrote. “For these reasons and others that may be presented to the Court at the hearing on this motion,” Clinton continued, “I believe a psychiatric examination would be in the best interest of justice.” Indeed, Clinton’s defense was to discredit a twelve year old girl and depict her as a crazed sex fiend. HILLARY LIE I worked to bring opportunity back to upstate New York in a lot of depressed communities there as senator and went to bat for American workers and businesses as your secretary of state. DEBUNKED “Working” to bring opportunity back to upstate New York is not the same as actually bring opportunity back to upstate New York. In her 2000 Senate campaign, Clinton famously promised to deliver 200,000 new jobs to upstate New York. By the end of her first term, upstate New York lost 26,500 jobs, according to USA Today. And by “went to bat for American workers and businesses,” I hope Clinton means being the architect of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), which she took “a leading part in drafting[.]” This very trade deal has been soundly opposed by Clinton’s new BFF, Senator Elizabeth Warren, who says the TPP “would tilt the playing field even more in favor of a big multinational corporations and against working families.” But in typical Clinton fashion, after publicly speaking in support of the TPP 45 times, Clinton now opposes the deal. HILLARY LIE Donald Trump actually stood on a debate stage in November and said that wages are too high in this country. He should tell that to the mothers and fathers working two jobs to raise their kids.He said, and I quote, “having a low minimum wage is not a bad thing for this country.” At a time when millions working full-time are still living in poverty. DEBUNKED This assertion is grossly taken out of context. Trump did not say wages are “too high” because he felt workers were getting paid too much (i.e., what Clinton is implying). The context in which this statement was uttered was with respect to the intersection of the failure of the trade deals Clinton has championed throughout her career, and whether, given the struggle for domestic companies to compete now, Trump supported raising the minimum wage to fifteen-dollars per hour. It was within that context Trump said American wages are too high—meaning that current wages, and consequently any increase in wages, make it impossible for American companies to compete with sweatshops in China and Maquiladoras in Mexico. In an interview on Fox Business Network’s Varney & Co. Trump said of a fifteen dollar per hour minimum wage, “You have to keep our country competitive. One of the reasons companies are leaving is because salaries are too high. You look at what’s going on in Vietnam and in China and so many different places, so we have to be very, very careful with that. That sounds so easy but we have to be very, very competitive or we’re going to lose all of our jobs in this country.” Like many other businesses, the post-NAFTA market forced Trump to outsource some of his work, because Clinton made it clear that she valued foreign jobs over domestic jobs. Clinton now criticizes Trump for outsourcing, the very same business decision that thousands of companies were forced to make because of her.
