Trump’s insult unfounded

I am tired of hearing Donald Trump refer to Hillary Clinton as crooked. That woman has been investigated for twenty-something years by various agencies, congressional committees and news media. Frequently those investigations were politically motivated. The ultimate result of all those investigations is: substantially nothing.

Compare that with the conduct of a man whose companies repeatedly declared bankruptcy to avoid paying debts, who misled the students of Trump University and who outright lied about seeing people cheering the fall of the Twin Towers on 9/11.

Repeatedly accusing somebody without evidence is a timeless tactic used by the old Nazis, old Soviets and now old Donald Trump. We should all be aware of that and accordingly beware of anyone who uses it.
