Secretary Of State Hillary Clinton’s testimony on Capitol Hill yesterday, has drawn criticism among conservatives. The 65-year-old got into a heated exchange with Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) over the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi, Libya, resulting in a critique from Rush Limbaugh.
On his radio show, Limbaugh held nothing back. “It was a puke fest,” he said. “It was unlike anything I’ve ever seen. It was right out of a banana republic. And I’ve seen it all.
“I mean, in all my 62 short years I’ve seen a lot. I’ve never seen groveling, butt kissing, sucking up. I’ve never seen anything like Hillary Clinton’s appearance before a joint congressional committee on that Benghazi guy who went nuts over there in Libya,” he said referring to statement made by Clinton, in which she asked “What difference does it make?” when accused of making excuses for the fatal attack.
“Hillary said ‘What difference does it make? What difference, at this point do it make?’ Exactly right, but what difference does any of it make? What difference does it make that 50 million Americans are on food stamps? What difference does it make that the president’s acceptance speech, his inaugural address, was perhaps one of the most partisan and divisive speeches in American presidential history? What difference does it make? Exactly right, after all this time, what difference does it make?”
He went on to state that Clinton’s televised testimony was Democrats “cleansing” her record “in advance of her presidential run in 2016.”
Following the Benghazi attack that killed four Americans, Clinton took full responsibility for what has been seen as a breach of security.
