Clinton advisers tell National Journal’s Ron Fournier that it doesn’t matter if people don’t trust Hillary

“They’re only worried about
winning this news cycle
& winning on election day”

On Tuesday’s Morning Joe the crew talks with Ron Fournier about Hillary Clinton’s pathological lying.

WILLIE GEIST, MSNBC : Do you think part of it, Ron, is she has assessed in this race that she’s up against someone that she can safely hold the ball and not go into detail and not talk about what exactly she did because she’s getting away with it against Donald Trump?

RON FOURNIER, NATIONAL JOURNAL: I literally have had senior officials . . . saying that trust doesn’t matter, that Bill Clinton won even though he was trusted less than the two people he ran against. What they don’t realize is that the world has changed.

Now we understand that trust does matter. She could still win, even by continuing this parsing and this lying, but then she’s going to be leading a country where two-thirds of the people don’t trust her. And you can’t transform our politics, or do half the things she wants to do if people don’t trust her.

They’re only worried about winning this news cycle and winning on election day. They are not thinking about what she is doing to undermine, not only her credibility, but the credibility of the whole political system and the Democratic Party.
