Hillary can’t help herself: She’s addicted to deception

She can’t help herself. Hillary Clinton is addicted to deception.

The news that she used an iPad as well as a BlackBerry demolishes her already ridiculous claim that she set up a private email server so she would only need to carry one gadget as secretary of state. At a March 10 press conference, Clinton put it this way: “I thought using one device would be simpler, and, obviously, it hasn’t worked out that way. Looking back, it would have been probably . . . smarter to have used two devices.”

Those comments, her first public ones on the scandal, are now revealed as a lie. What a way to start a presidential campaign!

The Clinton way is indistinguishable from plain dishonesty.

Oh, wait — it’s the Clinton way. Always was, always will be.

Now what? Does she expect us to assume she’ll tell the truth from this moment? Maybe she should wink twice with her right eye and raise her left hand to signal when a lie is coming.

Not that we needed any reminding, but the Clinton way is indistinguishable from plain dishonesty. That’s how it was when she and Bubba were in the White House for eight years. And it’s how it was when she lost the Democratic race in 2008 and opted for the State job in President Obama’s cabinet.

Six years later, she’s back in the political ring again, yet nothing’s changed. She still won’t tell the truth.
