Charles Krauthammer said Wednesday on “Special Report with Bret Baier” that Hillary Clinton’s attempt to soften her criticism of President Obama’s foreign policy is a “blatant display of Clinton inauthenticity.”
Clinton on Wednesday downplayed the comments she made in an interview with The Atlantic magazine, saying she plans to hug it out with the president and reiterating their shared values. In the interview, Clinton suggested that Obama’s foreign-policy mantra of “don’t do stupid stuff” lacked sufficient depth.
Krauthammer, a syndicated columnist and a Fox News contributor, blasted Clinton for what he said was an attempt to retract her critique.
“This is such a blatant display of Clinton inauthenticity,” he said. “It's breathtaking. She did finally appear to say something that she believes and then, of course, retracted it. Remember. With these people, meaning the Clintons, do you ever know if they are saying something sincere?”
Krauthammer said Clinton shifted her beliefs to the left in the 2008 presidential campaign, and is apparently maneuvering to the center ahead of 2016.
“So you never actually have any idea what is the core belief,” he said. “And I think if she finally ended up saying what you thought was inauthentic and withdraws it with a hug within a day, she's in trouble.”
