In one of the most savage speeches of her political
career so far, Hillary Clinton, yesterday, threw
away the diplomatic tactics that has characterized
her previous press addresses and went straight
for the jugular, unleashing a series of biting
attacks on presumptive Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Clinton warned that Trump should not be let
anywhere near the nuclear codes because he
could start a war when somebody “got under his
very thin skin.”
“He’s not just unprepared — he’s temperamentally
unfit to hold an office that requires knowledge,
stability and immense responsibility,”
Clinton said during her speech on National
Security in San Diego, California.
She lambasted his “bragging” approach to foreign

they strike us at home,”
“He believes we can treat the U.S. economy like
one of his casinos and default on our debts to the
rest of the world, which would cause an economic
catastrophe far worse than anything we experienced in 2008,” she continued.
“He has said that he would order our military to
carry out torture.”
“Imagine Donald Trump sitting in the Situation
Room, making life-or-death decisions on behalf of
the United States. Imagine him deciding whether
to send your spouses or children into battle. Imagine if he had not just his Twitter account at his
disposal when he’s angry, but America’s entire
arsenal,” she said.
“Do we want him making those calls — someone
thin-skinned and quick to anger, who lashes out
at the smallest criticism?” she asked rhetorically.
“Do we want his finger anywhere near the
