Hillary: Presidents Shouldn’t ‘Point Fingers’ or Divide After Tragedies – Trump ‘Doesn’t Have Any Empathy’
On Wednesday’s broadcast of Comedy Central’s “Daily Show,” former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton criticized President Trump’s response to the terrorist attack in New York City by saying the president shouldn’t “point fingers,” or set people against each other and argued Trump “doesn’t have any empathy.”
Hillary said, “Well, it’s so disappointing, Trevor. Because, you know, I was a senator from New York on 9/11. I was with President Obama through a lot of difficult decisions as his secretary of state. I obviously, saw my husband responding to tragedies, attacks, the Oklahoma City bombing. And what you want in a president is what I think the three men I just mentioned delivered, and that is trying to bring the country together, talk about what happened with the event that they are concerned about, but not to point fingers, not to scapegoat, not to try to set Americans against each other. And, unfortunately, that just is not part of the job that our current president accepts or is willing to perform. You know, of course he can have his own point of view and push his policies. That goes with the job. But not to continue to divide Americans against each other. So, he just doesn’t have any empathy. And you can disagree with somebody over all kinds of partisan issues, but you want to have a president who can try to put himself into the shoes, the feelings of somebody else. And he has not been able to do that.”
