10. The Hillary is corrupt meme ignored two things

One, Trump was FAR FAR more corrupt and serious reporters had exposed corrupt business practices. He claimed his taxes for many many years could not be revealed as they were under audit. He was also associated with corrupt people, from Roy Cohn to Roger Stone to Paul Manaford.

Two, there were no examples of corruption - even with the posting of all her emails and the earlier, Chelsea Manning leak of State Dept cables when she was SoS. Her life for decades was an open book.
