Even CNN reported on the gaffe by New Hampshire Democratic Governor Maggie Hassan, who is running to beat incumbent Republican U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte, because she struggled to answer the simple question of whether Hillary Clinton can be trusted:
Earlier this week, Hassan spoke to CNN’s Manu Raju,who asked Hassan whether she considered Clinton honest and trustworthy — an issue that has plagued the Democratic presidential nominee. Hassan declined to answer the question three times, dodging and instead praising Clinton’s other qualities.Speaking to WMUR in New Hampshire on Tuesday, Hassan was more direct in her response when asked if she thought Clinton was trustworthy. “Yes, as do military and national security experts from both political parties,” Hassan answered.
