    Why do you trust a right-wing website that does not give any facts to back up what it says?

    I mean Donald Trump may say Obama’s born in Kenya but that doesn’t make it true.

    Trust the non-partisan Charity Watch President DANIEL BOROCHOFF who said, and I quote directly, “The Clinton Foundation is an excellent charity. They are able to get 88 percent of their spending to bona fide program services and their fundraising efficiency is really low. It only costs them $2 to raise $100. They’re up there with other “A” charities such as Doctors Without Borders, Salvation Army, the American Red Cross. On the other hand, CharityWatch of course has “F” rated charities such as Feed the Children that’s only able to get about 42 percent of their cash spending to bona fide program services.”

    Don’t take Media Matters’ word for it. Watch the video on CNN:

    So Marc, I told the truth. I could accuse you of lying, as you have wrongly accused me. But I’ll just assume that you have difficulty finding non-partisan sources and rely for all your “truth” on biased, false propaganda websites. Which is kind of sad.

    Because even the source you provided cites politifact which says your claim is “mostly false.” (The only thing that’s true is that the Clinton Foundation usually does the good works itself rather than acting as many charities do, as a conduit through grants. By cutting out the middleman, it can provide even more benefits to those in need.)

    Yet you didn’t check your own links. When your links contradict what’s in an article, that should alert you that a Big Lie is being foist upon you.

    You lied about the percentage of donations to the Clinton Foundation that go to charitable activities (other than to the Clinton Foundation and its employees and principals.

    Here are the actual percentages:
