Hillary Clinton was confronted by an unemployed coal miner at a roundtable event in West Virginia last night for promising to “put a lot of coal miners” out of business. At a CNN town hall in March Clinton declared “we are going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.” “I just want to know how you can say you’re going to put a lot of coal miners out of jobs and then come in here and tell us how you’re going to be our friend. Because those people out there don’t see this as a friend,” the man said. “I don’t know how to explain it other than what I said was totally out of context from what I meant because I have been talking about helping Coal Country for a very long time and I did put out a plan last summer,” Clinton responded. “It was a misstatement because what I was saying is that the way things are going now we are going to continue to lose jobs,” Clinton explained. “What I said was that is going to happen unless we take action to try to help and prevent it.”
CRUZ: I’m going to tell you what I really think of Donald Trump. This man is a pathological liar. He doesn’t know the difference between truth and lies. He lies practically every word that comes out of his mouth. And in a pattern that I think is straight out of a psychology textbook, his response is to accuse everybody else of lying.
He accuses everybody on that debate stage of lying. And it’s simply a mindless yell. Whatever he does, he accuses everyone else of doing. the man cannot tell the truth, but he combines it with being a narcissist. A narcissist at a level I don’t think this country has ever seen.
Donald Trump is such a narcissist that Barack Obama looks at him and goes, ‘Dude, what’s your problem?’ Everything in Donald’s world is about Donald. And he combines being a pathological liar, and I say pathological because I actually think Donald, if you hooked him up to a lie detector test, he could say one thing in the morning, one thing at noon and one thing in the evening, all contradictory and he’s pass the lie detector test each time. Whatever lie he’s telling, at that minute he believes it.
Hillary Clinton tells CNN’s Jake Tapper that she is going to ignore Donald Trump’s insults. “I have a lot of experience dealing with men who sometimes get off the reservation in the way they behave and how they speak,” Clinton said. “I’m not going to deal with their temper tantrums or their bullying or their efforts to try to provoke me,” she said of the men she had experience with. “He can say whatever he wants to say about me, I could really care less. I’m going to stand up for what I think the American people need and want in the next president.” Is she talking about Bill?
In this week’s address, the President repeated his call for Republicans in the United States Senate to give Chief Judge Merrick Garland a fair hearing and a vote. President Obama says’ “there is absolutely no reason for Republican Senators to deny him the basic courtesy of a hearing and a vote – the same courtesy that has been extended to others. This refusal to treat a Supreme Court nomination with the seriousness it deserves is what makes people so cynical about Washington. That’s why poll after poll shows a majority of Americans think Senate Republicans should do their job; give Judge Garland a hearing; and give Judge Garland a vote.”

“American Bridge to the 21st Century,” a super PAC founded by Clinton-backer David Brock, questions Donald Trump’s “America First” foreign policy in a new ad. The ad replays a portion of Donald Trump’s major foreign policy speech Wednesday before evocative music and air raid sirens begin to blare over Trump’s previous statements: “I watch the shows,” Trump said. “I’m speaking with myself… I know more about ISIS than the generals… I’m good at war, I would bomb the shit out of them.” “I love war,” it quotes Trump as saying.
