    What are the odds the crook cheated to pass the Arkansas Bar?


    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Monday mocked Hillary Clinton for failing to pass the Washington, D.C., bar exam.

    "Does anyone know that Crooked Hillary, who tried so hard, was unable to pass the Bar Exams in Washington D.C." Trump tweeted. "She was forced to go elsewhere."

    Politifact, the Pulitzer Prize-winning fact-check website, and Snopes, famous for busting chain emails, have both previously rated the statement that Clinton "flunked the D.C. bar exam" as true.
    http://www.ibtimes.com/did-hillary-clinton-fail-bar-exam-truth-behind-donald-trumps-latest-criticism-2408562

    In an article for a conservative Internet journal that has been widely distributed via chain e-mail, former Clinton adviser-turned-foe Dick Morris points out a little-known embarrassment about Sen. Hillary Clinton, who was a star law student at Yale.
    "She flunked the D.C. bar exam and only passed the Arkansas bar," he wrote.

    It's true.

    CLAIM: Hillary Rodham failed her 1973 attempt to pass the District of Columbia bar exam.
    TRUE

    She's in the company of great people, including a former president of the USA (Roosevelt), a SCOTUS intellectual (Cardozo), and the first and only woman name partner at an Am Law 100 law firm (Kathleen Sullivan) (btw, Trump supporters if you don't know what the terms "name partner" and "Am Law 100" are, look them up (side note: I was a partner at an Am Law 100 so I know)). People who have never even seen a law school, let alone a bar exam, have no idea what they're talking about when they make assumptions about this subject.

    These disturbing qualities became apparent upon her leaving Yale with her failure to pass the District of Columbia Bar examination, a feat rarely accomplished by a Yale Law School graduate. First, the D.C. Bar exam has never been regarded as one of the country’s more difficult bar exams, and second, 80% of graduates of first-tier law schools (and Yale is at the top of the heap) pass the bar exam -- any bar exam -- on their first effort. Hillary, with characteristic ("what-difference-does-it-make?") insouciance, brushed this failure off with the romantic notion that, since her heart was in Arkansas (with Bill and where she passed the bar exam), this was a message to her that she should follow her heart. She then went to work on the staff of the House Judiciary Committee, which was considering the impeachment of Richard Nixon at the time. She worked for the committee’s chief counsel, Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat and a former professor at the University of Santa Clara Law School, who found her work legally inadequate and ethically flawed. As a consequence, she was one of only three attorney-employees of the committee over the course of Zeifman’s tenure that he considered unworthy of a positive reference. Indeed, Hillary and the Clintons left such a sour taste in Zeifman’s mouth that, not only did he point out his displeasure with Hillary in his 1995 book about the Committee’s activities, Without Honor, he wrote a lengthy monograph some 10 years later excoriating Hillary Clinton’s scurrilous behavior (Hillary’s Pursuit of Power), in which he details many of Hillary’s indiscretions and displays of incompetence. Things did not improve from there; indeed, they only went downhill.

    Hillaryphobia: an inability to focus on anything but how much one hates Hillary, an inability to tell real issues from made-up or peripheral ones, willingness to believe anything as long as it's negative, blind acceptance of any alternative as long as it's not Hillary, unwillingness to discuss substantive issues, a belief that unflattering pictures and stupid memes actually mean something. There is no known cure.

    What is the lie? You think she did pass the DC Bar and the sites listed as corroborating (that means agreeing with) are wrong?

    So what would your condition be called characterized by blind acceptance of all Hillary and rejection of anything critical?

    Clearly she should be jailed immediately for having failed to pass the Washington DC bar exam.

    Happy now, troll?

    (Whatever happened to Socal btw? You and he seem to have so much in common.)

    Blatant idiocy which should make him permanently ineligible to vote in any election.

    Wow, this shit AGAIN?

    "A pair of articles published during Hillary Clinton's run for the presidency in 2008, one by Northstar Writers Group founder Dan Calabrese and one by Jerry Zeifman himself, asserted that Zeifman was Hillary's supervisor during the Watergate investigation and that he eventually fired her from the investigation for "unethical, dishonest" conduct. However, whatever Zeifman may have thought of Hillary and her work during the investigation, he was not her supervisor, neither he nor anyone else fired her from her position on the Impeachment Inquiry staff (Zeifman in fact didn't have the power to fire her, even had he wanted to do so), his description of her conduct as "unethical" and "dishonest" is his personal, highly subjective characterization, and the "facts" on which he based that characterization were ones that he contradicted himself about on multiple occasions."

    Drumpf got into schools due to $$$$$ and connections.
    And he LIED (no surprise!) about his accomplishments.

    ".......Trump has happily allowed the media to report that he graduated first in his class from Wharton, including in New York Times stories in 1973 and 1976 about him. But the story goes on to say:

    Writing in the New York Times magazine in 1984, William Geist reported that “the commencement program from 1968 does not list him as graduating with honors of any kind,” even though “just about every profile ever written about Mr. Trump states that he graduated first in his class at Wharton in 1968.” … In 1988, New York magazine reported that the idea that Trump had graduated first in his class was a “myth.”

    If he fed the media a lie, it's a lie. If someone make a mistake and he still promotes it, or doesn't correct it, it's still a lie.

    Nice try but you failed again. Snopes was commenting on emails that circulated that stated Zeifman was her [formal] supervisor and fired her. Zeifman actually stated he was not her [formal] supervisor but did supervise some of her work. He also claimed he did not fire her, did not have the authority to do so, but would have had he had the authority.

    Simply put, he can't be trusted "and the "facts" on which he based that characterization were ones that he contradicted himself about on multiple occasions.

    He clearly lied. Repeatedly.

    "My own reaction was of regret that, when I terminated her employment on the Nixon impeachment staff, I had not reported her unethical practices to the appropriate bar associations. "

    Do you have a link to a direct quote from him versus someone else's interpretation or recollection?

    Very good analogy.

    Liberals are jealous of America...so they seek to stab it to death.
