America’s biggest liar, Hillary Clinton, appeared on CNN over the weekend with Fareed Zakaria to discuss the Democratic Party’s remaining presidential candidates. The CNN host questioned Hillary about President Trump and his handling of the coronavirus outbreak. True to form, Hillary responded by making up facts about how well she handled the outbreak of SARS while she was Secretary of State under Barack Obama.
“Uh, the SARS epidemic, which happened in the very beginning of the Obama administration, because I was secretary of state at the time…” Hillary began. “uh, really was a full-court press by the administration to be sure that at every level, not only national, state and local, but globally that the United States was part of the response.”
Only one problem, Hillary wasn’t secretary of state during the 2002-2003 SARS outbreak—not even close. George W. Bush was president at the time.
Hillary Clinton was secretary of state from 2009-2013.

Here is the video in its entirety. Note, how the delusional Hillary speaks to the CNN host as if she’s almost campaigning for president again. The exchange where Hillary pretends she was secretary of state during the SARS outbreak happens near the 30-second mark.
