Old and tired: “Basket of deplorables.” New and hot: “Why aren’t I 50 points ahead?”
My late father was a successful trial lawyer, so good at his job that he regularly taught classes to other lawyers on the nuts and bolts of winning a case in the courtroom. One of his topics was examining a witness on the witness stand.
And here was his top piece of advice:
“Never ask a question that you don’t already know the answer to.”
Because you might get answers like these collected on Twitchy:
The short explanation for why Hillary Clinton isn’t 50 points ahead is “Hillary Clinton”
Because you’re an Anti-American, felony committing hag who has proven time and time again that only the the deranged and moronic of our nation would possibly think of voting for you.
she has to ask?
It’s the pantsuits, Hills. There I said it. Sorry…….
Be thankful you’re still even in the race, Hillary.
The question isn’t why she’s not 50 points ahead, the real question is WHY ISN’T SHE UNDER INDICTMENT?
Because her shrieking voice would drive Vultures off a day old road kill?
Because the only way to do that is to salt the polls with 90% democrats.
See what I mean? Now, Hillary Clinton is a lawyer, and she went to one of America’s best law schools: Yale.
But she didn’t take a class from my dad.
Or these words would have been burned onto her brain: Never ask a question that you don’t already know the answer to.
