    Considering the choices I'd pick Trump over Hillary any time.. You are oblivious to all the corruption, lies, and deceit that she has done over her ENTIRE carrier. The only reason she's not in prison now is because the head investigator for the Benghazi incident is one of her son in laws and Mr. Obama censured the FBI from bringing charges to cover his own backside...

    I can't imagine why she drove into that water, sorry about her death.
