While everyone tuned into the debates on Monday night to see Mrs. Clinton battle out with Donald Trump something was done to the debate stage to giver her an edge over her opponent.
It’s obvious if Mrs. Clinton did this before the debate she’s not all that confident about the chances of her victory anymore.
Because if she was…she would haver never resorted to this parlor trick to try and gain the upperhand over Trump.
From New York Daily News:
Hillary Clinton says that we’re “stronger together,” but even she can’t deny Donald Trump is taller.
The Democratic nominee, who is 5-foot-4, has apparently enlisted the help of a raised podium for the first presidential debate against Donald Trump, who is 6-foot-3, Monday night, photos of the two podiums show.
According to WABC’s Rita Cosby, one of the two podiums inside the debate hall at Hofstra University, in Hempstead, N.Y., is larger than the other.
It is believed that the larger one was built at Clinton’s request to make her appear taller than she is.
“Clinton is 5’4″ and Trump 6’2″ and her team wanted the podium modified or a box added so she won’t look short next to Trump,” Cosby said in an email.
It is the first of three between the two major party nominees. The other two are scheduled for Oct. 9, in St. Louis, and Oct. 19, in Las Vegas.
You have to wonder why Mrs. Clinton would do this?
I mean, she’s been running this whole time as the first female nominee of a major political party…so isn’t that enough to garner votes.
To resort to altering your appearance for the sake of votes proves Mrs. Clinton doesn’t actually think she can win…if she did she’d have let the strength of her policies do all the talking.
