Video: Hillary Clinton Takes A Shameful Swipe At President Trump And Melania Using The Bible
During a eulogy for Rep. Elijah Cummings on Friday, former President Bill Clinton asked that we would show civility toward each other and “not hate everyone you disagree with.” I don’t think his wife got the memo when she went up to speak after her husband.
While Hillary gave her eulogy Clinton kept referring to Rep. Cummings to the prophet Elijah in the Bible and stated that Elijah “stood against the corrupt leadership of King Ahead and Queen Jezebel.”
The crowd full of Democrat nut jobs erupted with applause and laughter. Hillary continued, “Our Elijah was a fierce champion for truth, justice, and kindness in every part of his life,” she continued. “His integrity and character, his can-do spirit, made him a guiding light in Congress.”

What a shameful way to take a swipe at our President and his wife. I have to say I’m surprised to see the Bible being used from a party that voted against God.
If you remember back in 2012 during the Democrat National Convention there was a move to restore the reference to “God” and recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Loudly Democrats said, “NO”
Three times the vote was brought to the floor and loudly three times the delegates screamed “NO.” Then the proposal passed and the floor erupted with boo’s.
“The majority of the delegation here at the Democratic National Convention supported the previous language and instead after three attempts to vote and it failed twice, and for whatever reason it still failed but was still pushed through,” said Rashida Tlaib, of the Michigan delegation.
Former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, head of the platform committee, downplayed the turnaround. “I wouldn’t call it an error,” he told Fox News. “It was a clarification.”
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said in a statement that the changes were made “to maintain consistency with the personal views expressed by the president and in the Democratic Party platform in 2008.”
