Trump, Clinton declare each other unfit to serve as commander in chief

by Ben Wolfgang | The Washington Times  |  published on September 8, 2016

Seeking to paint themselves as eminently qualified and the other’s judgment as lacking, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton traded barbs Wednesday night over the Iraq War, the Islamic State, U.S. intervention in Libya and other key foreign policy challenges, each telling a hall full of veterans and servicemen and -women that the other isn’t fit to serve as commander in chief.

At a forum hosted by NBC News and the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, the two White House hopefuls each accused the other of fully supporting the 2003 invasion of Iraq, pointing to how the conflict has destabilized the region and led to the rise of the Islamic State.

For her part, Mrs. Clinton once again admitted she’d made a mistake with her vote to authorize the conflict, but quickly turned the tables on her Republican foe and highlighted his own muddy position on the war.

“I think that the decision to go to war in Iraq was a mistake, and I have said that my voting to give President Bush that authority was, from my perspective, my mistake,” Mrs. Clinton said during the 60-minute forum, at which each candidate answered questions for a half-hour. “I also believe that it is imperative that we learn from the mistakes. But I will say this: I’m asking to be judged on the totality of my record.”

That record, she said, also included the 2011 military intervention in Libya, a decision Mrs. Clinton said she stands by. She also said “we did not lose a single American in that action,” glossing over the fact that four Americans were killed in 2012 at the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi and giving Mr. Trump an opportunity to pounce.

    I agree! But I’ll give Trump a chance to prove me wrong

  • Shelba Herring

    Hillary SOROS whore is nothing but a puppet on an earpiece. Dumb as the plastic doll toy that repeats what it is recorded to say. The doll that you also have to change DEPENDS DIAPERS. Trump make America Grest again

  • Phillip_in_TX

    That’s simple. Hillary “Rotten” Clinton couldn’t “tell the truth” if her life depended on it! So, she’s “lying” about Trump!

  • Warren

    Well one of them is a Criminal, Traitor, Money Launder, Con-Artist, Pay for Play Murderess with 22 Scandals & a Trail of 62 Mysterious Deaths connected, who has to be propped up for a 10 minute speech. The other is a Successful Businessman with many years of experience dealing with important Foreign Dignitaries & not owned by Gorgy Schwartz & the Bilderbergers .
    Let me think about this, it is a very tough decision .

    • Anouk

      No tough decision to make here. Donald Trump is the only choice to be President of the United States of America.

    The UNFIT STATUS IS ALREADY HILLARY’S. Because she held government positions and was a failure in everything…….meaning to elevate this disaster to president would be complete stupidity. Everything she touched in government became death, chaos, failure. Trump never wasted American lives, taxpayer money, troops. Trump did not create genocide, mass dislocation of foreigners. Trump did not set up a political slush fund “foundation” and call it a charity. TRUMP HAS NO GOVERNMENTAL RECORD TO ATTACK. BUT MADAM SHREW CLINTON HAS A TRAIL OF HELL FROM ARKANSAS TO D.C. TRUMP DOES NOT WANT TO IMPORT MORE ILLEGALS OR MUSLIMS TO ASSAULT OUR CITIZENS, COMMUNITIES AND SCHOOLS. Clinton’s idea to import more Syrian males to the US has no purpose for the US, is not a compassion concept…..but a hate move against the US that she despises like Obama. Leave them in the Mideast in a camp…….where they can be returned to their own territory in the future. Dragging bottom feeding savages, illiterates or diseased 3rd world threats into the US is treason.

  • Roy Fredrichsen

    Well, as a veteran, and at 91 years old, having seen the last 4 Presidents in action , and if neither Hillary or Trump are fit to be president, Then, by virtue of experience, I could run for President and we wouldn’t have to put up with all the present garbage we are getting.

  • Leslie Woodhull

    HAHAHA!!! HILDEBITCH thinks that just because she talks about her decision to vote for the War in Iraq that excuses her from doing so. NOT!!! NOPE, SHE’S HAD HER CHANCE FOR THE PAST 35+ YEARS!!! EVERY TIME SHE GETS A LITTLE POWER IT’S CORRUPTION, LIES, DECEIT, MURDERS, THIEVERY, 500,000 MORE ILLEGAL ALIENS IN HER FIRST YEAR AND CRAP!!!



  • Askjrsk

    Catch the ear piece? Why not directly hook up to the sound system that we all can hear the canned answers? “She has to cheat to lie”, observed Donald Trump. CONVULUTED lies covering previous lies. That c on the header, she thought were grades. She is accustomed to F’s, so this was an improvement. HUMA emailed making sure Hillary had her ear piece, or does she need to get it for her.
    Oh and Chalsea forced her illegitimate opinion of Trump on us. We anxiously await Trumps children opinions of Bigoted lying CONVULUTED dangerous Hillary and Bill the rapist. Speaking of releasing info, Chelsea, who is your daddy? When will you release the results of DNA tests?

  • justinwachin

    Hillary isn’t fit to be commander in chief. The murder of the Benghazi embassy staff demonstrates the failure of the Obama administration’s mishandling of Libya. What is worse was they lied to the American people about the cause of the attack and began to drop hints that we might have to restrict freedom of speech rights to prevent similar Islamic terrorist attacks from happening in the future. Hillary is a proven liar. Her tenure as secretary of state was a collection of failures. We now know she was extremely careless in how she handled sensitive information given to her. This woman will continue the failed Obama policies.

  • Cleverfun

    Obama was a community organizer, a Liberal Collage Professor and a One-Term Senator who never ran so much as a pop cycle stand but he’s somehow qualified to be President?

    Trump is a Billionaire with real-estate ALL over the world, tens of thousands of employees and yes, his own jumbo jet not paid for by U.S. tax payers.

    Mr. Trump is a very smart if not “sagacious” business man who is extremely proficient at using words to manipulate & size up his opponents so anyone who sits back and assumes that he is stupid; is highly mistaken…

    Hillary Rotten Clinton is a career-criminal/communist and the potential first man is a perv… I will take my chances with Mr.s Trump and I’m willing to bet that the same silent-majority that crawled out of the woodwork in both 2012 & 2014 to take back the US Senate & the House [respectively] is right there with me!

    • Anouk

      I am 100% with you! Donald Trump for President.

    • USNavyPatriot

      Yes, yes and yes!!! But did Obama actually complete his One Term in the Senate? No, no and NO! Evil Obama has hurt my country and we’ll NEVER forget!!!

      I vote #HillaryForPrison!

        I’d prefer a “tall wall” and a “21 gun salute!” There is always a chance of “escape” from prison.

      Actually, Barry Soetoro worked for a couple of weeks in Hawaii at an ice cream parlor. So like Karl Marx, who worked a couple of weeks as a newspaper correspondent, he actually was a productive member of society (however briefly), before becoming a public parasite (nuisance/irritant/disruptor).

  • Tiger

    Difference is that Hellery is unqualified and has been responsible for ISIS and the mess in the ME with her cohort O.

    She is a disgrace with no honor, no dignity, no integrity and nothing to offer she will be O’s mouth piece for another 8 years if she wins. O has made it clear in his latest speeches he isn’t leaving but going to stay active in politics.

    Yes he is and it will be him, Soros making the calls. She is nothing but a lie.

  • Ramon1710 .

    “Mrs. Clinton said ‘I will say this: I’m asking to be judged on the totality of my record.’”
    So who’s going to do the judging – with a corrupt FBI, corrupt court system, complicit Congress, and a “Dept. of Justice” which is part of your criminal empire? Or is knowing the system has been bought off why you’re willing to be judged?

    • Phillip_in_TX

      God WILL definitely take care of that!

  • Climax

    One quick question. How much did Trump have to do with ” Iraq War, the Islamic State, U.S. intervention in Libya and other key foreign policy challenges”? Absolutly nothing. How much did Clinton have to do with it, 100%. How many American Lives has this cost us, how much American equipment has been lost due to it, how much has this cost the USA? Congratulations Mrs. Clinton, you are winner of the biggest liar contest around, you helped create and drive this Mideast destabilization full bloom. I declare you are unfit to be POTUS or served in any other government position as you cannot be trusted to follow protocol, have the diplomatic skills of a pile of cow dung, the mouth of a drunk sailor, and are as trustworthy as walking on a quarter inch of ice.
