Much of the 2016 Presidential campaign season has centered on whether Hillary Clinton is trusted enough or Donald Trump has the temperament to be commander-in-chief. There doesn’t seem to be much change in their attempts to alter the narrative concerning how people view them on the public stage. As far back as 2005 when Hillary and Bill Clinton attended Trump and Melania’s wedding ceremony as VIP guests it sure looked like all four had a pretty good time.
The billionaire businessman has, over the years, given at least $100,000 to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation and made multiple cash donations to Hillary Clinton’s various political campaigns before this one.
At the first GOP debate back in August, Trump was asked what he “bought” with those donations of his to the Clintons. His answer sounded much the same as usual:
“With Hillary Clinton? I said, ‘Be at my wedding.’ And she came to my wedding. You know why? She had no choice because I gave.” The Donald boasted.
Clinton gave her familiar parsed and glib take on the subject when asked about it shortly after.
“We were not friends.” she said.“I happened to be planning to be in Florida and I thought it’d be fun to go to his wedding, because it’s always entertaining.”
Whatever one may think of either candidate, it is safe to say they both have attempted to use white nationalism as a means to garner votes from a once monolithic bloc. Clinton has only now realized this isn’t how to win anymore while Trump and the Republicans can’t bring themselves to embrace enough of the “others” to make this a competitive race.
