Hillary Says Trump Pardons are 'Grotesque' - Gets Shredded by Benghazi Hero

Following recent reports that President Donald Trump is planning to invoke his executive privilege to pardon several military members, Hillary Clinton responded to the news by calling his actions "grotesque."

Reports suggest that Trump may be planning to use his executive power of clemency to servicemen accused of various “war crimes” that were allegedly committed during service overseas.

Despite the lack of official confirmation of the news, President Trump's critics have been quick to lash out, accusing him of undermining justice or even of committing war crimes himself.

Rather unsurprisingly, one of those critics, shouting from the bullpen, was Trump's failed 2016 presidential election rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Hillary's attempt to score points off the president on social media, however, left her wide open to harsh criticisms due to her own questionable actions in the past.

According to Western Journal, linking to a New York Times article about the possible military pardons, Clinton tweeted, “This is grotesque.”

No. What was really “grotesque” was how then-Secretary Clinton had handled the deadly 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, which resulted in the deaths of four American citizens — Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.

Whether it be her refusal to grant additional security following repeated requests prior to the attack or the fact that no real reinforcements or rescue effort was launched during the hours-long attack on a diplomatic facility the field of justifiable critiques was ripe for harvest.

With all of that in mind, one of the heroes from the Benghazi terrorist attack — former military combat veteran turned private security contractor Mark Geist — tweeted his own criticism of Clinton’s “grotesque” tweet.

“And to think, had you done your job I wouldn’t have had to testify in Federal court today in the trial of Mustafa Al-imam,” he wrote.

“But I’m guessing you have zero clue as to who he is. Let me remind you. He is accused of being involved in the deaths of 4 Americans #Benghazi #13hours”

In a separate post from Geist, he revealed how his testimony against the accused terrorist had been “long awaited.”

That tweet linked to a post from country music legend Charlie Daniels about the trial, in which Daniels had asserted, “No, Benghazi ain’t over by a long shot.”

To be sure, Geist was not the only one to call out Clinton over her “grotesque” tweet, as countless others reminded her of Benghazi as well as some of the more dubious presidential pardons issued by her husband — former President Bill Clinton.

People also reminded her that she lost in 2016 and was really just mad that it wasn’t her wielding the executive power to issue pardons as she saw fit.

Thanks to our nation’s freedom of speech as enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, the former secretary of state enjoys her right to utter whatever sort of nonsensical criticisms of the president who defeated her as she’d like.

That said, given her own history of “grotesque” behavior and abysmal failings, it would probably be wise of her to just be quiet and sit this one out.
