“Yes I know,” he told me, “and really, I’m aware that this is exactly how they acted over Benghazi. Sometimes you need to bully the bully to make him see.”
Actually, there’s a rather big difference, although the behavior is the same. Since Clinton was not in government at the time, the Benghazi matter did not affect US foreign policy.
Behaving the same way towards a sitting president, however, DOES affect foreign policy, and not in a good way.
It would have been interesting to point out to the Clinton Crony that all the bleating about Russia creates the potential for a very human reaction on the part of Trump, that being to be tougher and harder on Russia than would normally be called for, and why did he not care that his desire to “get Trump” might create a very dangerous situation for the entire world?
