Conservative Twitter Goes Nuts After Clinton Says There’s a ‘Hillary Standard’, and It’s Unfair to Her

Screen Shot 2016-07-24 at 9.03.41 PMHillary Clinton says that there is a double standard for law and justice in America, though conservative critics would strongly disagree with her about to whom it is most unfair.

During her sit-down with Scott Pelley on 60 Minutes, the CBS anchor asked Clinton how she felt about those who repeatedly argue that she’s a corrupt political elitist who isn’t held to normal ethical standards. Clinton attributed all smears about her being “crooked” and “corrupt” to Republicans who are determined to paint her in a negative light to undermine the truth of her political accomplishments.

“I often feel like there’s the Hillary standard and then there’s the standard for everybody else,” Clinton said. When asked to explain, Clinton pointed to the rhetoric against her at the Republican Convention, calling it “unfounded, inaccurate, mean-spirited attacks with no basis in truth, reality, which take on a life of their own.”

Now, when it comes to the Benghazi attacks, the private email scandal, and various other matters, there are plenty who say that Clinton operates as though the law is beneath her, even though she has never been found guilty for any specific criminal act. As such, conservatives took notice of Clinton’s words, and they were not forgiving.
