Politician. There may not be a dirtier word in the English dictionary. Politicizing can be used for progress, positive change and fighting to conserve a quality status quo (like the United States Constitution). Sadly, the vast majority of politicians are career minded, agenda focused and looking to wield power like a child on their birthday. It’s mere speculation, but it’s likely a 90/10 ratio of money and power politicians versus desirous public servants politicians. And boy-o, can politicians tell some lies–some real whoppers. Here are 10 of the boldest in recent history.
10. Hillary and Her Red Rooster
We held tight on this list for a hot minute, hoping for something really good from the remaining 2016 POTUS contestants, and we are so glad we did. Hillary Clinton is surprisingly honest when it comes to her policy, but when it comes to letting kitty cats out of the bag, she’s as tight lipped as a Muppet. Earlier this week, Hill sat down with the crew of The Breakfast Club, and hoped to address a large black audience. Unfortunately, for Hillary, she was a little too prepped for the interview, and when asked, “…the one thing she always has to take with her,” she quickly answered, “Hot sauce.” The reaction of her interviewing trio was priceless, and they immediately called her out for pandering to black people. She rolled with it. Was she telling the truth? She’d have pulled out the bottle if it were true, right?
