Donald Trump is good at a few things. He is an expert at being offensive. He excels at being racist. And he really knows how to stick his foot in his mouth and show his ignorance.
He decided to tweet about Hillary Clinton’s incompetence and dishonesty, as he so likes to do. And as is often the case, he got it wrong. Once again.
Trump tweeted, “Lyin’ Hillary Clinton told the FBI that she did not know the “C” markings on documents stood for CLASSIFIED. How can this be happening?”
Well, actually, Donald, how does a self professed honest best candidate for President ever not know that the C does NOT stand for classified? It stands for confidential. Which is the lowest level of classified information. It is lower than “Secret” and “Top Secret.”
But it doesn’t stop there. What Trump also missed is that the official and proper way to mark an e-mail as Classified, Confidential, Secret, or Top Secret is to put that notice in the header. It seems pretty obvious why that would be. You don’t want someone to have to read an e-mail to determine if it is sensitive or not.
So these e-mails that Trump is referring to were sent by others in the State Department to Hillary Clinton. They were not properly marked. And they were not considered Secret or Top Secret.
It makes you wonder how Donald Trump thinks he could possibly be qualified to be President. And of course, the answer is, he is not in the least bit qualified!
