The third Presidential debate was a contentious one between Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, and as to be expected.

Fox News debate moderator, Chris Wallace, actually proposed the hard-line questions we somehow missed in the first two debates.

Finally, the 2nd amendment and abortion were discussed, which at their core are fundamental disagreements Democrats and Republicans have always had with each other.

But then Hillary’s “Clinton Foundation” was a topic asked by Wallace, and she not only lost in epic fashion, but also dodged the question entirely hoping to fool the American voter.

When asked about the accusations of donations given to the Clinton Foundation – creating a “pay-to-play” conflict of interest during her time as Secretary of State – Hillary pivoted to her accomplishments rather than her charity.

From the Fox News third Presidential debate:

Chris Wallace – Secretary Clinton, during your 2009 Senate confirmation hearing, you promised to avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest with your dealing with the Clinton Foundation while you were Secretary of State, but emails show that those seeking grants for Haiti relief were considered separately from non-donors and some of those donors got contracts… government contracts… taxpayer money….

 Can you really say that you kept your pledge to that senate committee?  And why isn’t with what went on between you and the Clinton Foundation… why isn’t it what Mr. Trump calls pay-to-play.

 Hillary Clinton – Well… everything I did as Secretary of State was in furtherance of our country’s interest and our values.  The State Department said that.  I think that’s been proven…

What?  Your foundation is in our country’s best interest?  By “our” do you mean yours?

And how about the people of Haiti?  Was your charity in their best interest?

But here’s where it gets juicy. Hillary continued:

 But I am happy.  In fact, I am thrilled to talk about the Clinton Foundation because it is a world-renowned charity and I am so proud of the work that it does.  Ya know, I could talk for the rest of the debate… (sinister smile) I know I don’t have the time to do that.  But just briefly…

 The Clinton Foundation made it possible for 11 million people around the world with HIV/AIDS to afford treatment.  And that’s about half of all the people in the world who are getting treatment.  In partnership—

 Chris Wallace (interrupting) – Secretary Clinton… respectfully… this is an open discussion. 

 (Interrupting and talking over each other happened briefly amongst the three until Donald Trump was the lone-talker)

 Donald Trump – [The Clinton Foundation] a criminal enterprise.  And Saudi Arabia giving 25 million dollars… Qatar, all of these countries.  You talk about women and women’s rights?  So, these are people that push gays off of buildings.  These are people that kill women and treat women horribly.  And yet, you take their money.  So I’d like to ask you right now, why don’t you give back the money that you’ve taken from certain countries that treat certain groups of people so horribly?  Why don’t you give back the money?  I think it would be a great gesture—

 Hillary Clinton (interrupting) – Well…

 Donald Trump – Because she takes a tremendous amount of money.  And you take a look at the people of Haiti.  I was in Little Haiti the other day in Florida and I want to tell you, they hate the Clintons.  Because what’s happened in Haiti with the Clinton Foundation is a disgrace.  And you know it.  And they know it.  And everyone knows it.

Clearly Hillary’s campaign instructed her to deflect any criticism about the Clinton Foundation and disregard the question entirely.

And in the WikiLeaks emails, they prove she used her position as Secretary of State to further the Clinton Foundation’s interests – and it was definitely not in the best interest of the American people.
