Unfortunately, Baier apparently did not realize the significance of what Hillary had said.

Presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton hadn't held a press conference in about half a year and the press was restless. She needed to do something to suggest that she was not afraid to answer tough questions.

Hillary chose to be interviewed for a few minutes by Fox News anchor Bret Baier.

It would have been much worse for Hillary if she had picked Bill O'Reilly or Sean Hannity (or Laura Ingraham or Jeanine Pirro if she wanted to be interviewed by another woman),

It was bad enough, however.

Unfortunately, Baier apparently did not realize the significancer of what Hillary had said. (If presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump had said something comparable, there would have been a media firestorm.)

Perhaps Baier was hoping that Hillary would explain that she was "absolutely certain" that she would not be indicted because she knew the fix was in.

That would have been tremendously newsworthy, but what Hillary actually said in response to Baier was a devastating admission that Hillary does not tell the truth routinely and Baier inexplicably let it pass instead of following up.

Hillary claimed that what she had said about being absolutely certain was true as a matter of happenstance, not that whatever she says is true to the best of her knowledge, information and belief.

Baier: "...the Clinton Foundation investigation, the FBI investigation, email, you're saying zero chance that this is a problem for you in this election.

Hillary: "Absolutely. That's what I'm saying. That happens to be the truth."

"That happens to be the truth"?

Happenstance!

"A happenstance is a coincidental event. If you call your brother on the phone, that's intentional. If you bump into him in a restaurant, it's happenstance." (www.vocabulary.com/dictionary/happenstance).

Who wants it to be a happy coincidence if what the President says is true?

For those who do, vote for Hillary.

For those who don't, vote for Trump.
