And if she wins, we’re supposed to trust her with the nuclear codes. Hopefully, they aren’t sent by email.
Did you catch THIS Hillary moment at the debate?
Well, here it is again, with sound:

Yep, Hillary just announced the Nuclear Response time casually on television.
In the clip, after calling out Trump for being “casual about the use of nuclear weapons,” Hillary then casually pops off the exact response time our government would have during an attack.
“Here’s the deal,” Hillary tells Chris Wallace and the entire planet watching live, “The bottom line on nuclear weapons is that when the president gives the order it must be followed. There’s about four minutes between the order being given and the people responsible for launching nuclear weapons to do so.”
…Hillary tweeted the info out earlier but with slightly different wording, specifically the phrase “can take” rather than an implying a more exact time of four minutes. Many of her defenders use that wiggle room wording, and an article from Bloomberg back in September that suggests launches can take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes, as evidence that she wasn’t giving any information away.

This four-minute figure may be “out there,” but it’s certainly alarming how casually Hillary Clinton talks about sensitive matters of national security.
Almost as sloppy as hosting a private server without government security and transmitting classified and sensitive material via email.
As Trump said, people have gone to jail for years for doing way less than she has with classified information.
