Stop me if you’ve heard this one.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is now being considered a cybersecurity expert.
Hilarious, right? Except, it’s actually true. According to Fox News, Hillary will be a keynote speaker at a cyber defense summit in Washington, D.C. this year.
The event will involve an “intimate Q&A keynote discussion” with her. That should be interesting.
Isn’t this the woman who was using a server in her basement to send classified information through her personal email account? And didn’t the Intelligence Community Inspector General’s office warn the FBI that metadata in Hillary’s emails suggested that ever one of them got forwarded to a foreign third party, according to The Epoch Times.
Fox News also cleverly pointed out that Hillary, who is now apparently a cybersecurity buff, feigned extreme ignorance in 2015 after her server was found to be erased and she was asked if she had intended to “wipe” it.
“What, like with a cloth or something?” she asked, making wiping motions with her hand. “I don’t know how it works digitally at all.”
Not surprisingly, FireEye’s choice of inviting her to speak on cybersecurity is getting roundly mocked.
In other Hillary news, she recently spread some fake news by claiming that President Trump tweeted a doctored video of Nancy Pelosi.
“The president and his cronies have been running around spreading a doctored video of Nancy Pelosi,” she told the audience at an event. “Now it is sexist trash.”
But the video Trump posted to Twitter is simply a highlight reel of Pelosi stumbling over her words repeatedly during a speech. It’s not doctored.
The doctored Pelosi video that’s been passed around and deleted by YouTube was deliberately slowed down to make Pelosi appear drunk. It’s a completely different video from what Trump posted, but Hillary is mixing the two up.
