Opinion: Former First Lady forgets all the times Democrats went low

At the Democratic Convention, our former First Lady said, “When the Republicans go low, we go high.” Really? During her husband’s administration, did the Democrats go high?  

When, under cover of darkness, billions of taxpayer dollars were flown from the U.S. to Iran, the world’s No. 1 sponsor of terrorism?  

When a former Democratic president took umpteen trips to Jeffrey Epstein’s private island?  

When their Secretary of State used an unauthorized private server for government business and erased 30,000 emails?  

When their U.S. Ambassador to the UN concocted a story about the origin of the Benghazi attack that caused the death of our ambassador and other patriotic Americans?   

When, prior to the roll-out of Obamacare, we were told those now famous words “If you like your doctor, you can keep him?”  

It appears our former First Lady doesn’t recall all of the facts. Even so, she is still considered the most popular woman in America. Isn’t that interesting?
