Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump both generated unflattering  headlines about comments. After their first debate,  there were  comments claiming Clinton relied on a “micro” earbud as she fielded questions about national security. According to Fox News,  her campaign vigorously denies this.  This photo was offered as proof: hillary-clinton-earpiece

It does look like she might have a hearing aid or something in her ear, but I’m no expert on earbuds and don’t have a clue how one would be used.

What I do know is that when I googled photos of the debate I found this:


In that photo, her hair and dress color look the same, but the necklace is different. So, I don’t know where/when the initial photo showing that pearly thing might have been taken.

The website True Pundit quoted unnamed New York police sources saying Clinton was wearing an “inductive earpiece” during the NBC forum hosted by Matt Lauer. The website described the unit as the kind of tech used by stage actors in need of prompting to recite forgotten lines.

Whether this is fact or fiction she does have a history of twisting the truth, so it sort of made sense when an acquaintenance said,  “She’s told so many lies, for so many years that she can’t keep them all straight without outside help… Makes sense why she would need to wear that ear bud.”

    1. It was my understanding that they weren’t supposed to use any ‘crutches’ for the debate. As I said, I don’t know if this is fact or photoshop… IF there was something in her ear, it might be for balance or something – I’ve seen several clips where she is having issues with that.

      1. Supposedly Hillary spent weeks prepping, which was the excuse why she didn’t do much on the campaign trail… in contrast, Trump was all over the place and always had such big turnouts that not everyone could get in.

  1. Many, many news stories carried that picture which shows both the wrong necklace and earring for the debate. No idea why. However, after the debate on some news sites, it was easy to search and find the correct picture. Now they are gone however, the correct pictures can still be found. This is one story. fellowshipoftheminds.com/2016/09/29/hillary-clinton-used-a-ear-phone-at-debate-with-trump/comment-page-1/ Trying to get to the truth of anything today is an upstream battle, isn’t it?

    1. It is amazing how much dirt there is on that woman! I, for one, would LOVE to have a female president, but HRC is the last woman on earth that I would trust with that much power.


      1. I know exactly what you’re saying. The question is why they are trying to hard to make her look healthy and capable. Her donors are big business, Wall Street and Hedge Funds; IMHO they don’t need more loopholes and/or skewed trade agreements to fatten their coffers. Our Constitution begins: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
        WE THE PEOPLE, not we the companies….
