"Pathetic" and "phony" Hillary Clinton is not getting a free pass from Donald Trump! In a speech on Wednesday the presumptive GOP nominee blasted Clinton for a 2008 speech filled with shameless fibs about her time in Bosnia.
The presumptive GOP nominee called a Clinton a "world class liar" at the speech in New York on Wednesday.
"Just look at her pathetic email and server statements," Trump said. "Or her phony landing in Bosnia, where she said she was under attack but the attack turned out to be young girls handing her flowers."
Trump was referring to a 2008 speech Clinton gave at George Washington University. The presumptive Democratic nominee claimed that when she traveled to Bosnia in 1996, she landed "under sniper fire."
"There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base," Clinton claimed.
But The Washington Post exposed Clinton's story as a lie, saying "Had Hillary Clinton's plane come 'under sniper fire' in March 1996, we would certainly have heard about it long before now."
CBS also debunked the story by releasing a video clip of the landing that showed Clinton holding a bouquet of flowers and speaking to children after landing — not dodging bullets.
Maj. Gen. William Nash was the commander of U.S. troops in Bosnia in 1996 and said, "She never had her head down. There was no sniper threat that I know of."

"I say a lot of things, millions of words a day, so if I misspoke, that was just a misstatement," Clinton told the Philadelphia Daily News.
Trump slammed Clinton's fib "as a totally self-serving lie," noting, "Brian Williams' career was destroyed for saying far less."
