Listening In? Hillary Clinton Accused of Wearing Earpiece During Live TV Forum
Did Hillary Clinton wear a secret earpiece during the NBC forum Wednesday night? It's a question on the lips of many political observers who now are spewing accusations at the Democratic candidate.
Actor James Woods tweeted a still frame from the NBC special aboard The Intrepid in New York City, claiming to show an object embedded in her ear with the caption: "Earpiece? #CrookedHillary."
Woods, a vocal critic of Clinton who dedicates most of his Twitter account to taking jabs at her, ran with the earpiece claims for most of the night.
The website True Pundit claimed New York cops working security at the forum saw Clinton wearing a high tech "inductive earpiece" so aides backstage could help her answer questions.
Could it have been an optical illusion or even a hearing aid? In a side profile of Clinton's left ear, no device could be seen or found.
The Clinton campaign has not commented on the matter.
In her first press conference in 278 days Clinton trashed Donald Trump's performance in last night's live TV forum.
She spoke in New York Thursday morning and said: “Last night was yet another test and Donald Trump failed yet again. We saw more evidence that he is temperamentally unfit and totally unqualified to be commander-in-chief.”
She even called Trump unpatriotic for this remark about Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
“The man has very strong control over a country. It's a very different system and I don't happen to like the system, but certainly in that system, he's been a leader. Far more than our president has been a leader,” she said.
