During her speech to the Democratic convention, Hillary told one of her trademark whoppers:
I will always remember the single mom who had adopted two kids with autism. She didn’t have any health insurance, and she discovered she had cancer. But she greeted me with her bald head painted with my name on it and asked me to fight for health care for her and her children.
James Taranto explains why one should doubt the veracity of this tale:
The trouble with this story is that cancer does not cause baldness. Cancer patients often lose their hair as a side effect of chemotherapy or radiation treatment. Unless this woman had alopecia unrelated to her cancer or was just making a fashion statement, she had health care.
God, I’m going to miss that woman.
