Hypocritical Hillary espouses 'strong border' Republican rhetoric, tells EU to curb migrants

In an interview with the Guardian, the Democratic darling Hillary Clinton, the defender of national border jumpers everywhere, triggered a firestorm on both sides of the Atlantic when she told European leaders to “get a handle” on the migration crisis. The hypocrisy was so heavy it had to be shoveled off the streets of London. Why the wobbly flip-flop all of a sudden?

Yes, ‘illegal immigration’ ranks as the problem Americans are most worried about, far out-ranking healthcare and race relations.

“Americans are more likely to name immigration as the top problem facing the US in November than they were in October – it surged to 21% from 13%,” the polling agency noted.

With his pledge to build a wall on the Mexican border – which has yet to materialize – Trump gave the right message at the right time, and........
