This is irony at its best. Hillary is now whining about being held to a different standard than other politicians — even though she clearly believes that she can get away with anything and everything.
Hillary Clinton brushed aside Sunday night the wrongdoings that have dogged her campaign for the Democratic nomination for president — including her reckless use of a private email system that the FBI determined involved the passing of classified information, which she continues to deny — claiming the allegations have “no basis in truth,” and represent the “Hillary standard.”
“I often feel like there’s the Hillary standard, and then there’s the standard for everybody else,” she told CBS News “60 Minutes” in an interview that included her new running mate, Tim Kaine.
When asked to explain, Clinton claimed that allegations against her — that include those made by a Republican-led investigation into her role in the Obama administration’s response to the Benghazi terror attack that left four Americans dead — are “unfounded, inaccurate, mean-spirited” and “take on a life of their own.”
She went on to say that, “People are very willing to say things about me, to make accusations about me that are, I don’t get upset about them anymore, but they, they are very regrettable.”

‘I seem to be the only unifying theme that they had. There was no positive agenda. It was a very dark, divisive campaign.’
Clinton said she didn’t recognize the America that the RNC speakers described, noting that they focused on ‘negative, scapegoating, fear, bigotry, and smears’ in their speeches.
But the former Secretary of State said she had no plans to give Donald Trump a nickname, much like the ‘Crooked Hillary’ moniker he has assigned to her.
‘I don’t call him anything,’ she said. ‘And I’m not going to engage in that kind of insult fest that he seems to thrive on.’
