Why does Lochte get in so much trouble for a little lie and nothing is done to Hillary?
In actuality Lochte only told an exaggeration and still caught hell.
Umm... no. He claims it was an "over exaggeration" but it was, in fact, a lie. A lie that could have potentially damaged a country's reputation (one that already has trouble with tourism) and one that hid his illegal activities (vandalism).
I'm also not sure what "trouble" you're referring to as nothing has happened to him yet and I wouldn't be surprised if nothing does happen in the end. White male athletes... you know how it goes.
Anyway, intentionally downplaying one of your examples lets your intense bias show. Maybe try to be more impartial next time if you want thoughtful answers.
Nothing bias. Hillary lied placing our country in danger. Lochte's was about a prank and he is getting in trouble for it.
Vandalism and falsifying a police report is a prank? Haha. Gimme a break.
Again, what trouble? People ragging on him for it? Yeah, no one EVER says anything bad about Hillary Clinton.....
National Security versus police???? Which is bigger and more serious.
Also, Waterboarding versus Beheading. Not involved in this ? just wanted to see how you think.
Did I say it was worse? I'm saying don't dismiss it. Perhaps the question should be "why do privileged people or people of status get away with things?" Dismissing one person's crimes as "pranks" isn't helping the ACTUAL problem, it's perpetuating it
National security? The world would be at risk if Trump became president. By definition, he is the poster child of fascism.
This is nothing more than a hate baiting question. Comparing Lochte to Clinton is the equivalent of comparing apples to watermelons.
It should be noted that in spite of the countless investigations and millions of dollars spent, no one has yet been able to charge Hillary with any crime. I think you would be hard pressed to find any politician who hasn't lied about a myriad of things.
That's right, but she LIED. That's the whole point of the question. Just like everything from the Dems, they only see what they want to see in anything someone says.
Trump's entire campaign is one big lie!
Sorry, I left my comment to this on Dashing Scorpio's answer. But I meant to say it here - Can you not "hear" the lies that Trump tells? Sometimes even in the same sentence.
I ignore the name calling. But, can you tell me what lies you think he is telling?
Aime is correct when she said, ""why do privileged people or people of status get away with things?" Dismissing one person's crimes as "pranks" isn't helping the ACTUAL problem, it's perpetuating it."
To my knowledge Lochte is not in trouble.
He was not investigated by the FBI or sat through 11 hours of testimony in front of the U.S. senate or had a government spend over $2 million dollars of tax payers money investigating him...etc
Lochte offended the people of Rio who depend on tourist dollars.
They were the world's host of the Olympics and it would be a major embarrassment for them if Olympic athletes were robbed at gun point by corrupt police officers.
The Rio government was well within their rights to conduct a thorough investigation to verify the story and catch the robbers.
Lochte had no reason to drag the reputation of the country down any further.
Having said that I doubt he'll come anywhere close to going through two years of on going news reports as Hillary has endured.
Truth be told these stories are like comparing apples to oranges!
Your right in your 1st paragraph. He didn't lie nearly as much as Hillary did. But he is in trouble and the media is making a big deal out of it. He didn't do anything nearly as wrong as her. But she gets away with it. He is losing a lot.
Egad, man. Sometimes Trump lies in the same sentence! Are you unable to "hear" his lies?
Actually, DS, comparing Hillary to Lochte is like comparing apples (Hillary) to stinkbugs (Lochte). He was there as the guest of the Brazilian govt. and betrayed their trust in a drunken act of vandalism and then lied.
And Hillary has betrayed the trust of "we the people" and lied to us. But I guess we don't count, Huh?
It is very simple. Hillary is a politician and we are used to
politicians lying and deceiving us. The Olympics is one of those things
that still has a pure noble feeling to it. So when there is lying and cheating
in the Olympics we are more offended.
"Why does Lochte get in so much trouble for a little lie and nothing is done to Donald?"
Hillary has faced several special government panels in order to accuse her of lying. She has not been indicted because there is no legal reason to prosecute her.
What a stupid question. Lochte is a nobody, and the Repubs have been trying to bring down the Clintons since 1992.
You are under the incorrect assumption that Clinton is lying in the same fashion as Lockte; as far as I know there isn't any hard evidence she has; but, given she is a politician, I suppose she has acted like every other one of them when dealing with the truth.
Lockte is in trouble because he caused great harm to the reputation of both the United States and Brazil.
