Hypocrisy, thy name is James O’Keefe

Donald Duck has also shown up at some Donald Trump events, where he’s held up signs demanding the GOP presidential nominee release his tax returns.Now conservative videographer James O’Keefe makes the case that Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton herself called for the duck to stalk The Donald…. O’Keefe is known for falsifying his videos through clever editing, not that this possibility seems to concern the Clinton camp. “Wow,” a Clinton spokesperson told Business Insider in a statement. “The latest so-called blockbuster video from this discredited right-wing activist who was funded by Donald Trump’s sham foundation uncovers a legal ploy to highlight that the Republican nominee hasn’t released his tax returns.” Trump is the only major-party presidential nominee in the past 40 years who refused to release his tax returns during the campaign.

It’s long been traditional for Presidential candidates to release their tax returns, the idea being that Americans deserve to know a potential Chief Executive comes with no financial skeletons in their closet. Donald Trump appears to feel himself to be above that tradition, having refused to release his returns. Perhaps he’s afraid what we might find out. It’s understandable that some might assume the worst; if Trump wasn’t hiding something, why wouldn’t he just do the right thing and release his returns? Why not display a commitment to honesty and transparency?

Instead of doing the right and reasonable thing, Trump (aided by O’Keefe) is painting Hillary Clinton as the bad guy. O’Keefe is charging that Crooked Hillary her own self PERSONALLY ordered Donald Duck to stalk The Donald ©. So he’s accusing Sec. Clinton of having a sense of humor?? LOCK HER UP!!!

Right; because she knows how effective an actor wearing a Duck costume can be at throwing Donald Trump off his game.

The idea of a convicted criminal like O’Keefe (who’s famous mostly for falsifying videos through selective editing) calling ANYONE out for criminal activity is laughable. Never mind there’s no evidence whatsoever that Sec. Clinton is involving in any sort of illegal collusion- whether humans disguised as ducks are involved or not.

I suppose it’s not impossible that illegal collusion is occurring between the Clinton campaign and independent partisan groups. For that charge to be credible, evidence of such bad behavior would need to come from someone other than James O’Keefe to. We’re supposed to take a criminal known for falsifying videos at his word? Somehow integrity and credibility aren’t the first things which come to mind when I think of O’Keefe.

Perhaps when airborne pigs violate Saudi Arabian airspace….

(Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.)
