The Scramble Has a Charitable Foundation

Sep 12, 2016

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have both been criticized in recent weeks for activities related to their respective foundations. Clinton is accused of using her position as a way to give special treatment to foundation donors. Trump used foundation money to support the re-election of Florida Attorny General Pam Biondi to allegedly stop her from investigating Trump University. As it turns out, Trump has been using his foundation for things that have nothing to do with philanthropy. 

Next, there's been a lot of speculation about Hillary Clinton's health in recent weeks, stoked by rumors of seizures and other debilitating brain injuries, much of it perpetuated by right-wing groups who have been debunked by Clinton's physician. Now, in light of her pneumonia that visibly weakened her at yesterday's 9/11 memorial service, we're asking why she didn't tell us sooner. Are we really surprised?
