The Most Honest Presidential Candidate Is --- Hillary Clinton
Republicans hate (and fear) Hillary Clinton. And for years now, they have accused her of being dishonest -- and sadly, many of Bernie Sanders' supporters have now jumped on that GOP bandwagon (in an attempt to give their candidate an advantage). But like most other GOP claims, this is a LIE.
The good folks at PolitiFact (who won a Pulitzer Prize for their fact-checking of politics), recently fact-checked the statements of the four leading presidential candidates -- Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump, and Ted Cruz. And their investigation exposed the GOP lie about Clinton's honesty.
They rated the statements of each candidate as falling in one of six categories -- true, mostly true, half true, mostly false, false, and pants on fire (outrageously false).
It turn's out that Clinton is actually the most honest of the four candidates (followed closely by Bernie Sanders). And the least honest of the presidential candidates is Donald Trump (followed closely by Ted Cruz). The GOP candidates have far less respect for the truth than the Democratic candidates -- and the most truthful of all is the candidate accused the most of being dishonest -- Hillary Clinton.
