ABC's Cynthia McFadden Compares Hillary Clinton to Thomas Jefferson

Over three programs and two days, ABC devoted 15 minutes to a fawning profile of Hillary Clinton. On Wednesday's Nightline, Cynthia McFadden even compared the outgoing Secretary of State to Thomas Jefferson, hinting that Clinton could follow his footsteps to the White House.

McFadden lauded, "There was a time not so very long ago when Hillary Clinton was seen as one of the most divisive figures in American politics." Noting Clinton's high approval rating, she announced this view was "changing."

Video

In an interview that, just coincidentally occurred in front of a statue of Jefferson, the reporter embarrassingly hyped, "As Jefferson looks over our shoulder, who I would only point out, was Secretary of State who went on to become president."

Hillary Clinton is an student of Saul Alinsky; deep down,she is a Fascist; Power is her drug of choice, Vodka second; Hillary advocated getting rid of the Electoral College and she finds our United States Constitution old and out of touch. She left our Benghazi ambassador to die and three other Americans who came to his aid...Hillary left them to the jackals when help was close by. Her tenure as Sec. of State has seen America more diminished threw our disdain for old and true friends....al Queda has grown strong, the Muslim Brotherhood has grown strong, the unrest in the Mid-East has grown enormously all under her watch and that of her boss. This woman is being compared to Thomas Jefferson? Look out America the MSM is trying hard to run us over again................Hillary is NOT our friend.

At what point do the American people finally understand that the major media in this country are 100% bought and paid for by the political Left?

"...was Secretary of State who went on to become president."

A little thing like authoring the Declaration of Independence and being Vice-President had nothing to do with it?

The unraveling of the Mid East will be Hillary's legacy, of course the Media will blame it on Lurch, who was to dumb to see he is being set up as the fall guy.

I don’t think Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty or Ty Woods would appreciate this. Oh wait, there were murdered during a protest over a video that no one saw.

These media dolts know nothing about American history. Hillary is Jefferson, zero is Lincoln this week, last week he was MLK, the week before he was Ronald Reagen. These are the little people with small minds who want to be somebody but were never noticed or paid attention to. History will record them as the nobodies they truely are.

I had no idea that Jefferson was a homosexual, murderer, perjurer, liar, traitor, thief, and obstructor of justice.

And, if the libtards have Jefferson already painted as a racist, white male, slave owner, then how does that square with this squirrel?

About all that I can see in common is that they both had sex with women.

Hell. Hillary wouldn’t even be qualified to carry Jefferson’s quill pen and parchment.

Some say NBC News is leading the pack in shilling for democrats but I disagree - ABC has got to be the worst of the lousy lot of em. They’ve got their heads so far up Obama’s backside its hilarious.

Meanwhile, in the Watergate era, Charles Colson went to prison for having just one FBI file in his possession.

Billy Boy and Hillary had over 900 FBI files of Republicans in their possession, and not a damn thing happens to either one of these dirtbags.

It's true:

She shaves every morning and puts on an ill fitting wig
