While appearing on The Hugh Hewitt Radio Show, Dr. Dorothy Narvaez Woods, the Gold Star widow of Tyrone Woods, the former Navy SEAL killed at Benghazi, Libya in the morning of Sept. 12, 2012, dropped a bombshell about Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
Woods bluntly said that Clinton could never be president because “she could not do what parents all over the country do,” which was “to teach their kids right versus wrong.”
While speaking specifically about the Benghazi attack, Woods said that Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration do not seem to care about the lives of soldiers, such as her husband, Ty.
“You know, that, to me, there’s a distinct difference between Ty and Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration,” she said.
“That night, American lives were important, the most important thing versus, you know, to Ty. That’s how he felt, versus Hillary Clinton, who you know, couldn’t be bothered with it. She dismissed it. She thought of herself. She thought of what that would look like. And that’s the fundamental difference.”
Woods explained that she would not encourage others to vote for Clinton.
“I teach my 4-year-old son to admit when you’re wrong, to say you’re sorry, and how are you going to fix it. To be honest with you, Hugh, if Hillary Clinton had done these three things regarding Benghazi, I wouldn’t be talking to you today,” she said.
“But she is, but Hillary Clinton cannot do what parents all over the country do to teach their kids right versus wrong, so she cannot fundamentally be our commander-in-chief. You know, it’s that simple. It’s that empirical to me. I wouldn’t teach my son, you know, to treat other people like that. And now she wants to be in charge of other people’s sons? No.”
Woods also weighed in on the dispute between Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and the family of a Humayun Khan, a Muslim Army captain who died fighting in Iraq in 2004. The media’s criticism of Trump, she said, was unwarranted.
“I would never, ever want to wish a Gold Star status on anyone,” she said. “But I also truly believe that it should never be used as an excuse or a shield when we hear something, and when I say we, collectively, the Gold Star families, when we hear something that we don’t like.
“The way I see it is no one ever questioned [Captain] Khan’s sacrifice or his service or his death. He was rightfully given full military honors, you know, like my family, his family, have lived under the benefit of American citizenship.”
Do you agree that Hillary Clinton is not fit to be president?
