Trump Just Downgraded Clinton From ‘The Devil’ To The ‘Founder Of ISIS’

9

Donald Trump is indeed reforming his ways and softening his tone. Earlier this week, he called Hillary Clinton “the devil.” Now, she’s simply the “founder of ISIS.”

In his speech Wednesday afternoon in Daytona Beach, Florida, Trump appeared to be heeding his advisers’ reported wishes and giving a subdued, policy-heavy speech criticizing Clinton’s foreign policy in places like Libya. He said President Barack Obama probably regretted making her secretary of state.

Then he said, “She should get an award from them as the founder of ISIS,” the Islamic State.

Trump promised to take the gloves off in recent days, and he has done just that. Indeed, as the timeline below shows, some of Trump’s earliest criticisms of Clinton now seem almost quaint by comparison.

April: ‘Crooked Hillary’

“I’m not controlled by the special interests and the lobbyists,” he said in Dexter, New York, before christening a nickname for Clinton. “And they control crooked Hillary.”

Early May: An ‘enabler’ for her husband’s behavior.

“She’s been the total enabler,” he said in Oregon. “She would go after these women and destroy their lives. She was an unbelievably nasty, mean enabler, and what she did to a lot of those women is disgraceful.”

Mid-May: ‘Trigger happy’

“On foreign policy, Hillary is trigger happy,” Trump said in May. “She is, she’s trigger happy. She’s got a bad temperament.

“Her decisions in Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Libya have cost trillions of dollars, thousands of lives and have totally unleashed ISIS.”

Late June: Perhaps the ‘most corrupt’ presidential candidate ever

Trump said in New York that Clinton “may be the most corrupt person ever to seek the presidency of the United States.”

Early July: ‘A dirty rotten liar’

“We say Lie. Lie. Lie. Lie. Lie. Lie!” Trump said. “Dirty rotten liar!”

Friday/Monday: ‘The devil’

On Monday, Trump said Bernie Sanders made a deal with the devil — Clinton. “But he made a deal with the devil,” he said. “She’s the devil. He made a deal with the devil. It’s true.”

On Friday, he similarly said Sanders “sold his soul to the devil.”

Tuesday: ‘A pathological liar’

On Tuesday, Trump tweeted a video labeling Clinton a “pathological liar.”

‘The founder of ISIS’

“We let ISIS take this position,” Trump said Wednesday. “It was Hillary Clinton; she should get an award from them as the founder of ISIS.”

The crowd responded by chanting “Lock her up!”

  1. Trump is right. If she becomes president then all construction in israel will be forced to stop. This evil machshefa is even worse than Obama. Wake up u sleeping chevra.

  2. Isn’t Hillary both. She is exceptionally evil and she did supply weapons to ISIS. In fact, Benghazi was a secret operation to run guns from the Libyan to Syrian branches of the muslem brotherhood.

  3. Commenter #5, the question isn’t whether Trump said that Clinton helped ISIS to obtain weapons, is it? It’s whether Trump said that she founded ISIS. I’m no fan of Clinton’s, but c’mon, you have to do better than that.

    • To #6: splitting hairs, aren’t we. Obama&Hillary’s “arab spring”: Hillary did support moslem brotherhood, Hillary took down the relatively secular Arab dictators while filling the power vacuum with even worse Islamic hardliners, Hillary pulled the US troops out of Iraq before there was any hope of law and order. Without Hillary, there would be no ISIS. So yes, Hillary’s policies made ISIS possible, ISIS is Hillary’s baby. Hillary should in fact be considered the founder of ISIS.

  4. Trump is so incredibly poor . This election is only significant in the fact that Hillary will be a man of such low character . I surmise that the only reason that this is true is that when she wins no one on earth will ever legitimately be able to call her the B word . Overall this is a foolproof plan from Hashem . Our lives are in G-ds hands . I’m quite sure that this time G-d is making sure that the funny people will remain funny . G-d bless America . This is the most uncanny election in the entire history of the universe .
