Bill Maher made a point Friday night when he asked what would have happened to Hillary's campaign had she famously announced in January a million dollar donation to veterans organizations and been found out in May not to have given a dime? For Trump the lie hardly made a stir. Of course, then he did.

No one would have believed her in January when she made the announcement.
But to be fair ... no one has associated her with honesty for over 3 decades so there would be no big deal made of a 6 month-old lie.

How'd I do? Was that right?

Frankly? It wouldn't have mattered much. People who don't dislike Trump or Hillary by now aren't going to change.

The media would have pounded her. Trump got a little polite questioning.

You're obviously watching a different set of news organizations than I or most others have access to as US citizens. Maybe your definition of "media" is different?

Posts number 2 and 3 above are pretty accurate, with BrewerBob saying almost exactly what my reply would have been had I not seen the jewel you wrote in post 4.

Absolutely nothing would change. Right-wingers went ape**** because Hillary Clinton didn't tip people at ****ing Chipotle. Chipotle is fast food. Hardly anybody tips fast food workers. But to them, that was a deal.

Doesn't matter what she does, or doesn't do. Not to them.

If Hillary had done what Trump did the congress would have to spend a $100 million of taxpayer money to hold an unprecedented number of hearings and then call in the FBI to investigate her. But that's just Hillary...all Trump got was a question from a journalist.


Vets aren't too happy with Trump using them as political props.

We'd already be on our 10th Donategate investigation....
