Hillary’s lying face

Bill Clinton is an accomplished liar, but it was Hillary* who was called a “congenital liar” in William Safire’s enduring label. But she admits she is not a “natural politician” is also not a natural liar, if there is any distinction between the two roles.

An amazing 13 minute compilation of Hillary Clinton’s lies in public offers us the opportunity to examine in detail her “tells” when she lies.

Screen grabs from her very first lie on the video, under sharp questioning by Anderson Cooper on her disingenuous claim to have been consistent on gay marriage, offer a tutorial on how to recognize a self-conscious Hillary lie.  In brief, the eyes tell the story.

Step one: The tight smile and a look downward with mostly closed eyes, as she realizes she is going to have to spin:

Step two: half opens her eyes, still looking down, as the lie begins:

Step 3: eyes open further, but not focused; facial expression suggests doubt:

Step 4: looks at questioner, but with eyes closed:

Step 5: looks off into space, as she seems to wonder if the audience is buying it.

This is a video for your friends and family who are not (yet) disgusted by Hillary Clinton.  Some have called this a “hold your nose election,” because there are many who find Donald Trump not to their taste. That being the case, Hillary must be held accountable, and this YouTube video, posted by Michael Armstrong, which I found on Twitchy via a link on Instapundit, is a start.

*Thanks to the many people who corrected my faulty memory that it was Bill who was called this by Safire.
