This is too funny. Really, this whole situation blows my mind. I’m not one to jump on a politician’s back for a misspeak. Truly. If you followed me around with cameras and microphones all day and asked me difficult questions and made me travel every day and give two, three, ten speeches a day and the occasional debate too…yeah, there’d be a lot of misspeaks in there. Embarrassing ones.

But honestly, how does one get confused and “misspeak” about dodging sniper fire? I have never dodged sniper fire. I’m 100% certain, no doubts at all, that I’ve never dodged sniper fire. If I had dodged sniper fire, I’m pretty sure I’d remember that equally clearly. So, while I tend to be nonpartisanly forgiving of the misspeaks, in this case, honestly, aren’t we talking (a) delusions or (b) a straight up lie?

I had beef…oh, no, I forgot, you’re right, I had the chicken. I wore the black dress that night…oh, sorry, honey, you’re right it was the green one. We were running for our lives diving for cover because bullets were flying all around us…oh, that’s right, actually we hung out on the runway and listened to a little girl reading poetry

Clearly the author of this article has not seen the real video of the now-famous Tuzla visit.
