In a major speech on Tuesday Democrat nominee in waiting Hillary Clinton railed against Donald Trump on the economy. The embattled billionaire was accused by Clinton of rigging the game for Wall Street if elected. This accusation is really rich considering that it comes from a woman who is still refusing to release the transcripts of secret speeches that she delivered to Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street high-rollers who are all expecting services for payment rendered if she wins the election.

ABC News reports “Clinton: Trump Economics Dangerous, Would ‘Rig’ for Wall Street”:

Hillary Clinton told supporters in Ohio on Tuesday that Donald Trump would be dangerous for the economy and that just because he has spent his life as a businessman, voters shouldn’t assume he’s prepared to be president.

“Trump would take us back to where we were before the crisis. He’d rig the economy for Wall Street again. Well, that will not happen on my watch,” the presumptive Democratic nominee said, referring to Trump’s plan to “wipe out the tough rules” put on big banks after the 2008 recession.

Clinton mentioned Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren numerous times in the speech and praised Warren’s role in creating the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which Trump has said he would dismantle.

Clinton told supporters that while writing this speech and the one on foreign policy that delivered a few weeks ago, she had “to look twice” because she could not believe Trump’s words and his plans if he is elected.

“Under Donald Trump’s plan, these Wall Street millionaires will pay a lower tax rate than many working people. And of course, Donald himself would get a huge tax cut from his own plan. But we don’t know exactly how much, because he won’t release his tax returns,” Clinton told supporters at the Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center in Columbus. She then asked, “What’s he afraid of?”

Trump recently said that his economic policy would implement many of the methods he used in his real estate business. But Clinton pounded his economics throughout the 45-minute speech and said he has “no real strategy for creating jobs, just a string of empty promises.”

“Let’s take a look at what he did for his business,” said Clinton. “He’s written a lot of books about business. They all seem to end at Chapter 11.”

Hillary pumped up Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren in the address giving credence to the idea that she is considering the Senator from Massachusetts for a key role. Perhaps even vice president although her Wall Street donors have already expressed extreme dissatisfaction with the idea.

Hillary also claimed that a Trump presidency would trigger a new recession although for many Americans the last one never ended. If one listens to Mrs. Clinton one would be inclined to believe that the Obama years have been a time of milk and honey with a chicken in every pot for Americans. Rather it has been a period of growing income inequality, the destruction of the middle class and the redistribution of wealth upwards to the top one percent or in layman’s terms – Hillary’s backers.

Mrs. Clinton can run roughshod over reality because the media gives her a free ride and will continue to do so but you can’t spell Hillary without the letters L-I-A-R.
