As Central Florida prepares for the former first lady and Secretary of States first grassroots event on Wednesday, we have 5 simple questions for her.
By Jacob Engels
When Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton arrives in Orlando for a high-dollar fundraiser and grassroots event, I have 5 simple questions for the former Secretary of State.
1). You have built your campaign around the idea of how historic it would be to elect a female president. Would you feel the same about the historic nature of electing a woman president if that individual happened to be a Republican or conservative?
2). For decades, you have voiced your support for equal pay and campaigned to help women in the United States achieve the same pay as their male counterparts. However, dating back to your husbands Governorship in Arkansas to the White House, U.S. Senate, Clinton Foundation, and in your presidential campaigns you have consistently paid women less than their male counterparts.
Why should we trust your rhetoric on equal pay… when it seems you have never practiced what you preached?
3). Recently you stated that all sexual abuse accusers “deserve to be believed.” Will you be retroactively extending this mindset to the women whom your husband sexually assaulted over the past 40 years and has spent millions of dollars in paying settlements to.
Or, do you as you have stated in the past, believe that your husbands accusers are still “bitches, sluts, and whores,” ?
4). How do you plan to stand up to the many Middle Eastern countries that have donated tens of millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative, some of those donations occurring when you were Secretary of State with business before those countries. Will you address their despicable records on human rights, LGBT rights, and women’s rights?
Why did you not do more as First Lady, U.S. Senator, or Secretary of State? Did it have to do with the millions upon millions you and your husband received in speaking fees…
5). In the race for the White House, outsider candidates like Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are drawing tens of thousands and shooting to the top of the polls, how do you make a legitimate case to voters that another Clinton presidency is the right option for the country?
On Wednesday I will be at Mrs. Clinton’s grassroots event at the Meadow Woods Recreation Center and will try to ask some of her supporters and potentially Hillary herself an opportunity to answer these important questions.
