With the exception of  Hillary Clinton’s  emotional  and touching entrance when she and  daughter Chelsea looked one another in the eye and both teared up, the first half of Hillary speech was  bland with a monotone cadence. But before she spoke, we were privy to see a side of Hillary we had never seen before. Right after  Chelsea introduced her mother and Hillary came to the stage, we witnessed mother and  daughter sharing  a beautiful, heartfelt, tender moment.

As Hillary took the stage and began to speak, her body language appeared stiff and mechanical.

Screen Shot 2016-07-28 at 7.52.32 PM

Whenever  she wanted to express a point or show emotion, instead of raising her vocal inflection, she got louder and louder. Soon it became a monotonous  bore where it was difficult to distinguish major points she was trying to get across.  It all sounded the same, in her staccato delivery/ So  it was not always easy to follow her message.

In terms of her facial language, whenever she got louder and louder to express a point, her eyes widened. It didn’t seem to be congruous with her message. The wide-eyed look,along with the monotone loud cadence at the end of her statements, did not showcase Hillary at her best.

Screen Shot 2016-07-28 at 11.23.59 PM

Ther monotone cadence and loud endings of sentences during the first half of the speech could put anyone to sleep . In fact, her speech  put Bill to sleep for a little while. In all fairness, he has probably heard her rehearse the speech countless times. Nevertheless, her monotonous droll lulled him to catch a few Z’s .

Screen Shot 2016-07-28 at 7.58.38 PM

But  as soon as she began to discuss Donald Trump and why he shouldn’t be the next President, a  completely different Hillary emerged. This Hillary was passionate, exciting, enthusiastic, and had life to her voice . She came alive and showed more emotion than ever before.  Her body language and facial language now matched her words. Unlike before, they were now  all  in synch.

Her message suddenly became clearer. Her zings to Donald Trump were very cleaver. She  said “Instead of making America great again, how about making things in America” when referring to his clothes  being made in China, shirts in Mexico and furniture in Turkey. She certainly made a good point with that statement.

She then said that  someone ” who loses his cool  when baited with a tweet  is not a man you can trust with nuclear weapons.”

Screen Shot 2016-07-28 at 8.27.24 PM

As she said this the audience roared and suddenly  Hillary became more energized and more passionate. She then began to express more emotion than ever before. Her tones were now inflected and the monotone and shouting  for emphasis was gone.  Her entire demeanor changed. She said what everyone in the audience wanted to hear.

Perhaps her most powerful statement  was personally directed to Donald and what she perceives as his bullying. She said that  as a child she was bullied. Her late mother, who was very near and dear to her heart, told the young Hillary to “pick yourself up and get back in the game and stand up to bullies.” 

Screen Shot 2016-07-28 at 7.47.51 PM

Bill and Chelsea watched her with pride and when Hillary spoke the words” I accept your nomination for President of the United States,”Bill looked like he was choked up and ready to shed a tear.

After the speech ended with a resounding applause, Bill finally came on stage with her. There was a genuine embrace between the two that lasted quite a while by hugging standards, with Hillary  even rubbing Bill’s back. Witnessing the two of them embrace at that moment, there was no doubt that whatever crises the two of them had been through with Bill’s serial womanizing, all was  in the past. The way Bill held Hillary showed a genuine connection, which was reciprocated by her.

What was also impressive when Bill was on the stage with Hillary was that he did not try to share the limelight with her. Instead,  he let her have her moment and  allowed her to shine.  He  constantly stayed in the background talking to others on the stage and amusing himself with the balloons- especially the larger ones, which he kept throwing around.

Hillary also had some fun with the  balloons and with acknowledging people in the  audience. She was warm. happy, and playful. This was  yet another side of Hillary that we never saw. It made her seem more human and likeable.

 

 

 

 

 

Bill Clinton’s  Excellent Speech Revealed Secrets About About His Relationship And Hillary’s Instincts

Screen Shot 2016-07-27 at 11.29.55 AM

There is no one who is a better speaker than Bill Clinton in my estimation. He can speak to an audience of millions, as he did at the Democratic, and make everyone listening feel as though he is speaking directly to them and have a personal conversation with them.

He does it through inflection, using the right tone, the right volume, emphasizing key words, and using a mellifluous vocal flow. His body language matches what he says as does his facial expressions. During this speech the typical Bill “vocal fry” or creaky sounding voice that we have come to know since Bill’s Presidency and which Bill impersonators  have often mocked was gone.

The content of his speech was fascinating. It was a historical march down memory lane in terms of his wife and best friend’s accomplishments. No matter what side of the isle you are on, all of Hillary’s accomplishments at such an early age seemed incredibly impressive.

At the beginning of the speech, Bill specifically spoke about the ups and downs of their relationship. You could see that there was a pained expression in his face as he briefly mentioned it. We all knew what he was talking about in terms of the downs of their relationship- Bill’s unfaithfulness and his getting involved in scandal after scandal with mistresses, lovers, and random women who accused him of rape, abuse, unwanted advances, and disrespect.

While  Bill’s down home approach made him seem like an open book with nothing to hide, there is no doubt that everything he said was planned and measured. But despite all the planning and measuring, he revealed several things about their relationship that he may not have realized.

For one, he revealed that Hillary had pretty good instincts early on in her life when she was dating Bill. He asked her to marry him twice and two times, she said “no.” There is no doubt, she clearly knew he was trouble, even back when they were students and when they were young. Perhaps she saw his flirty behavior and his eye for the women early on and wanted no part of it. That is no doubt why she didn’t accept his marriage proposal on two separate occasions.  Her instincts were right on as he has continued to be a trouble source for her as far as the women are concerned, throughout their marriage.

Bill thought he would try a third time. This time he manipulated her to marry him by purchasing the cute house she said she liked,  which she noticed on one of her earlier visits to Arkansas. After that big gesture, Hillary relented and finally agreed to marry him.

Bill also revealed something about Hillary was made many cringe, as he described her thick glasses in not a very flattering way, as reflected in his vocal tone, facial micro-expression and body language. He reflected that he wasn’t that attracted to her initially. Bill was the kind of person who took charge and made the first moves when it came to the ladies. This was also the accepted behavior back in the day in the late 60’s and 70’s, where the man usually made the first move, especially a man from the South. While there was the hippie movement of free love and the time where women started to come into their own, it still wasn’t the norm for women to make the first move. So, when Bill relayed that Hillary marched over to him from  across the room and introduced herself to him, her forwardness no doubt stunned and impressed him.

Bill respected this strong woman who wasn’t afraid to approach him, who wreaked in self- confidence.  He wanted to get to know her and continued to be impressed with her, not just as a conquest or love interest, but instead as a friend- as a best friend.

That friendship grew and grew to the point they met one another’s families. Bill fell in love with Hillary’s family, especially her mother, who’s upbringing was far worse than his. Hillary and her family represented stability, something he never had in his life.

Screen Shot 2016-07-27 at 11.29.34 AM

As Bill spoke of all of Hillary’s enormous achievements, there was a genuine sense of pride which shone through his body language, facial expression and voice. When he said  he ”married” his best friend, it made me think. Perhaps she was his “best friend,” but was he her “best friend?”  A “best friend” doesn’t cheat, lie,  and womanize, unless perhaps they are really only “friends.” But the fact that he used the term “ married”  to his “best friend” seems to change the equation.  “Married” “best friends” are not supposed to cheat and womanize. On the other hand, their relationship is their intimate business. If Hillary, as a married woman, put up with Bill’s Toxic behavior her entire life, it was her choice and  truly no one else’s business. Obviously the dynamic must have worked for her or she would not have put up with it.

After hearing Bill speak about Hillary, one cannot deny that he respects her accomplishments, and her abilities. Several times he said that she has been successful throughout her life in  “making change happen.” But sadly,  she was not able to make that change happen in her personal life with regards to Bill’s behavior.

Bernie Sanders Body Language Shows Anger, Passion and Distrust During DNC Speech

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 8.07.12 PM

 

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 8.07.19 PM

While Bernie Sanders’s body language showed that he was angry not only about the issues he passionately believes in, his body language showed that he was clearly angry that he was not the nominee.

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 9.08.21 PM

He showed that anger through pointing, pursed lips, and lip licking as he reluctantly  supported Hillary.

He openly addressed the elephant in the room and said that he was unhappy that he didn’t get the nomination as he verbalized” I  understand that many people here in this convention hall and around the country are disappointed about the final results of the nominating process. I think it’s fair to say that no one is more disappointed than I am. But to all of our supporters – here and around the country – I hope you take enormous pride in the historical accomplishments we have achieved.”

As he said “This election is about ending the grotesque level of income and wealth inequality that we currently experience, the worst it has been since 1928. It is not moral, not acceptable and not sustainable that the top one-tenth of one percent now own almost as much wealth as the bottom 90 percent, or that the top 1 percent in recent years has earned 85 percent of all new income. That is unacceptable. That must change” one could not help but think of Hillary  being at  that a “grotesque level of income and wealth inequality ” to which he was referring. After all, Hillary and Bill are one of the richest couples in the world.

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 8.05.57 PM

Deep down, here was no happiness and joy in his speech. He did what he had to do and the only thing he felt good about was that several of the issues  he holds near and dear have now been incorporated into the Democratic Platform.

Whenever he mentioned Hillary’s name he never smiled or showed warmth.

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 8.07.12 PM

While Bernie has usually shown a similar body language and facial expression throughout his campaign, the fact that this was the Democratic convention where she was supposed to be singing Hillary’s praises  speaks volumes. It says that his heart isn’t really into it. While the words are  certainly there, his body language says the complete opposite.

His final statement  is very telling as she says “ Our job now is to see that platform implemented by a Democratic Senate, a Democratic House and a Hillary Clinton presidency – and I am going to do everything I can to make that happen.”

What he is saying is that he is going to make sure that he keeps an eye on the Democratic Party to make sure that all of his issues are implemented  into the Democratic Platform because no doubt, he doesn’t really trust them.  After what happened to him during the campaign,  where  millions Americans voted  and sent in contributions to finance his campaign, turned out for his rallies, and cheered on his promised revolution, little did they know that Bernie never stood a chance. Their time and effort was wasted.

Now leaked  emails have confirmed what he suspected all along- that the  Democratic National Committee decided that Hillary Clinton would be the Presidential nominee long before any votes were cast.

His supporters at the convention appeared to be devastated. Many of them covered their mouth in upset and even cried, as you can see in the photos above.  With knowledge of the leaked emails his supporters are livid.  For many  on the  fence as to whether they were Bernie or Hillary supporters, the rigged campaign may have prompted them to leave the party all together and vote for Trump. Others who were Bernie supporters may feel duped and  so angry at the DNC , that they too may refuse to vote for Hillary.

Even though his parting words were ” Hillary Clinton will make an outstanding president and I am proud to stand with her here tonight.” his body language and facial expression showed that he really didn’t believe what he was saying. He wasn’t smiling at all when he made that statement.

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 7.55.34 PM.png

In fact ,the only time Bernie cracked a smile was when he was how much love there was on the convention floor for him and people wouldn’t stop clapping or chanting his name. Otherwise he had a sour facial expression throughout his speech. He clearly never smiled when she spoke of Hillary.

His body language and facial expression said that deep  down he believes, as do all of his supporters, that he would make an outstanding president and he would be prouder if he were the nominee instead of Hillary.

 

Melania’s Mellifluous Voice and Elegant Composed Body Language During RNC Speech

Screen Shot 2016-07-18 at 7.23.44 PM

Screen Shot 2016-07-18 at 7.23.44 PM

The stunning beauty, Melania Trump, wearing a gorgeous form fitting white dress, made her debut at the Republican Convention’s stage. As far as delivery and body language is concerned, Melania did extremely well, especially since she is not a public speaker, does not often speak in public, and the fact that English is not her native tongue. The tone of her voice was appealing and soothing. She was poised and composed vocally. Her accent in my view, was charming and her cadence, rhythm, and timing when she spoke  were excellent. She spoke with passion and inflection, especially when she spoke of husband Donald and what she believed he could do for the country.

Body language wise, her movements were fluid and elegant. She had a regal appearance with impeccable posture.

There is a  lot of talk about whether or not Melania’s speech was  original or whether it was the same as the speech given by Michelle Obama. It seems that they both spoke about education and their children, which seemed to be a mission on both of their parts. So it may be understandable that both messages may have been similar.

The bottom line is that she did an excellent job.  Should Donald Trump be the next President of the United States, it certainly appears that Melania,  as the First Lady, would handle herself with the same elegance and decorum  as she showed during her  RNC speech .

Once again, this is not a political stance as this is not a political blog. As an objective professional,  I  report what I see as it pertains to body language and what I hear as it pertains to communication patterns.

 

 

 

 

Bernie Sanders’ Body Language Says He Angrily and Reluctantly Endorses Hillary Clinton

Screen Shot 2016-07-12 at 11.15.45 AM

In making this analysis, know that I have no bias whatsoever. I am not supporting one candidate over another. I am objectively using my skills as a Communication and Body language expert to share my observations.

Screen Shot 2016-07-12 at 11.00.35 AM

As Bernie Sanders takes to the podium to say why he say came here, notice that Hillary is leaning away from him and looks miserable. There is no smiling on either of their parts. That is not a good sign.

Screen Shot 2016-07-12 at 10.56.41 AM

Bernie then says he wants to make it as clear as possible as to why he is endorsing Hillary Clinton. While she begins to smile, Bernie is definitely not smiling. Instead, he licks his lips and then purses his lips, as you see in the photo above. In essence,  the lip licking and swallowing reflects that  his autonomic nervous system has taken over and he is clearly doing something that he does not want to do. The lip pursing is the body’s way of saying “I really don’t want to say this.” His lack of smiling when standing next to Hillary also reveals his true negative feelings towards her. It indicates that he is  not enthused to be endorsing her. Hillary clearly knows how he feels as she exhibits a teeth-clenched,  forced smile with her eyes not crinkling.

 

Screen Shot 2016-07-12 at 11.01.52 AM

Hillary also feels Bernie’s “Burn” so to speak as she leans back with a more serious facial expression and also purses her lips. This  further indicates her discomfort around him. At first, she was smiling as you saw  earlier. But then she quickly changes her facial expression as she no doubt, feels the negative energy coming from Bernie.

 

Screen Shot 2016-07-12 at 11.05.04 AM

As Bernie  says Hillary  will be the Democratic nominee for President, Hillary is not smiling and her hands continue to be clasped in front of her private area in front of her, indicating that she is feeling vulnerable. The reason she may be feeling vulnerable may be because she may be feeling that Bernie’s heart isn’t really into his endorsement. She knows he is doing what is politically correct. But  she also knows that he is clearly not feeling it, based on his body language.

Screen Shot 2016-07-12 at 11.11.11 AM

There is something to be said about the expression “tongue in cheek” which means you are saying something that you really don’t mean. Look at how Bernie literally has his tongue in his cheek while he is endorsing Hillary, indicating that deep down, he doesn’t mean it.

Screen Shot 2016-07-12 at 11.13.04 AM

Then he balls his hand into a fist as he says he will do everything he can to make certain she is the next President. Hillary is still not smiling nor is Bernie. That is his anger leaking out. He is feeling angry at having to endorse Hillary and it has shown in his body language.

Screen Shot 2016-07-12 at 11.14.15 AM

As Bernie says she will be the next President of the United States, he looks down and frowns.  He does not look at Hillary. In fact, throughout his speech, he never looked at Hillary, which is telling. Hillary does manage to smile at these words and it is a genuinely happy smile with cheeks raised, eyes crinkled, and teeth showing.

 

Screen Shot 2016-07-12 at 11.15.45 AM

As the audience cheers, Bernie looks angry and he gives a huge sigh of defeat. Then he looks down and purses his lips, as you can see in the photo above. He  is clearly not a happy camper and Hillary knows it. Yet, she tries to stay positive.

The bottom line is that Bernie Sanders is angry, swallowing his pride, toeing the party line, and being politically correct. But his heart is clearly not in it as you can see from his body language signals. Hillary knows this as well, as it is reflected in her body language. Yet, she tries to keep up a pleasant expression. The fact that she has continued to hold on to herself with her hands clasped directly in front of her throughout the entires speech, without moving,  shows that she was literally “bracing herself” until Bernie’s  non- heartfelt endorsement  was over.

When Hillary began to speak, Bernie’s autonomic nervous system was working overtime as you can tell in the photos above. He was perspiring profusely, which appeared  to be an indication of his emotional state.

Screen Shot 2016-07-12 at 9.29.56 PM

He wiped his forehead, both sides of his cheeks, and did it two different times. Apparently, giving this speech appeared to be one of the most difficult things he had to do as part of the campaign.

Screen Shot 2016-07-12 at 9.35.17 PMHe even wiped his mouth as there was sweat above his upper lip, which is often an indication of deception. Even though his words said he was happy for Hillary and that he was endorsing her wholeheartedly, his body appeared to say the opposite.

Screen Shot 2016-07-12 at 9.32.38 PM

He  literally had to catch his breath. He took a very deep breath whereby you could see his shoulders raising as he then deeply exhaled that breath. He was oxygenating himself to stay composed.

Screen Shot 2016-07-12 at 9.29.07 PM

His shoulders were rounded as though he felt defeated. His lips were also pursed, indicating unhappiness.

Screen Shot 2016-07-12 at 9.29.28 PM

He maintained that pursed lip appearance as his jaw jutted forth, which indicated that he was feeling anger at the situation of having to endorse Hillary.  As we have observed, his body language, while remaining in the background while she spoke, spoke volumes about what he was really feeling .

Once again, this is not any indication of any political bias. I merely reported my observations on their body language as a professional Body Language and Communication expert.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Body Language Signals of Anxiety, Insecurity, Deception & Spin During Loretta Lynch Aspen Interview?

Screen Shot 2016-07-02 at 11.34.39 AM

Screen Shot 2016-07-02 at 11.34.39 AM.png

When someone stalls and spends a lot of time discussing the actual question they are asked, instead of answering it directly and immediately it raises a huge red flag.  It  may show that they are very anxious or  it may possibly indicate a signal of deception.

When reporter Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post  at the Aspen asked  Lynch “What were you thinking?” she attempts to diffuse the question by saying “That’s the question of the day, isn’t it? The  tag ending “isn’t it” shows insecurity and the hope for agreement and a subtle message to the reporter to not be hard on her during the interview.

Instead of answering the question posed to her, she speaks about the question, instead of answering it directly  as she says ” And I think it is  a reasonable question. Its’ the question that is called up why what happened in Phoenix. ” In essence she is stalling . In doing so she is taking the time to gather and manufacture  her thoughts. Also she looks up as she tries to manufacture what she will say next.

She continues discussing the question instead of answering it directly which now adds even more suspicion to  the public in terms of her credibility with regard to meeting former President Clinton on the tarmac and what they  actually discussed. She says “people have wondered and asked questions about my role in the resolution in matters involving state department emails.”

Screen Shot 2016-07-02 at 11.14.03 AM

Her engaging in formal rhetoric and still not answering the question, further adds to the public’s suspicion  as does her looking down and away. In essence she is attempting to distance herself body language wise ,  as it clearly indicates that this is not a topic she wishes to discuss.

Then she does double talk as she says ” to the extent that people have questions about that- my role in that .. certainly my meeting with him raises questions and concerns.”  Once again. she does not answer the question directly which is  yet another red flag  in public perception in terms of questioning her credibility here. As she says this she looks nervous. As you can see she is perspiring and shiney faced, especially in the areas on her nose and cheeks.This is often a signal of anxiety as reflected by the autonomic nervous system taking over.

Then she says in a staccatto” believe me I completely get that question” and  still , she is not getting to the answer of the simple question that was posed to her. She spins it  She looks away towards the audience and says UM AND and I think it is the question of the day. ( YET SHE STILL DOES NOT ANSWER THE QUESTION).

“The issue  is what is my role in how that matter is to be resolved. So let me be clear….WHEN SOMEONE SAYS “LET ME BE CLEAR” Oftentimes,  they are about to lie.  For instance, look at what Nixon said “Let me be perfectly  clear– I am not a crook)…So this may be   yet another a red flag for Ms. Loretta Lynch.

Then she goes on to say ” Now let me say how let me say how that is going to be resolved. NOW   I’ve also gotten  that question a lot. SHE STILL DOES NOT answer the question and engages in double talk.

Then she turns to the audience, not the interviewer  which is another red flag red flag s as she is attempting to try to get the audience to  be on her side and to garner favor with them. Once again she is stalling and  not answering the  simple direct question.

Then in a staccato manner,   she  says I get that question . She is not confident with her head up and looking directly at the interviewer. Instead,  as she says this   she looks away and her head is bowed down.

She continues with”  Certainly my meeting with him raises questions and concernes and believe me— ( when someone says” believe me”  it is usually  red flag and indicates that you  should listen carefully and perhaps  not believe them.

The interviewer asked if she was recusing herself from having any role in the final determination regarding Clinton’s emails.

Screen Shot 2016-07-02 at 11.29.53 AM

As you can she she is literally taken back by the question as she leans away . Below  she  shows the front of her hand as she puts it up towards her chest indicating that she is feeling vulnerable and defensive.

Screen Shot 2016-07-02 at 11.14.03 AM

She lets it be known that she doesn’t have a role in coming up with the findings.

When she says  I will be “except and corrects herself as she says accepting their recommendations, she stumbles over her words as she makes a  Freudian Slip. It makes one wonder if indeed she will be except or accept their recommendations. As she speaks, you do not see the palms of her hands which would often indicate truthfulness,  but rather the back of her hands which often indicates deception as you can see in the photo above.

Screen Shot 2016-07-02 at 11.23.45 AM

Now you see her looking extremely vulnerable as both of her hands in a triangular position covering her private parts and they are on her lap. She is also hunched over.

Screen Shot 2016-07-02 at 11.19.10 AM

When the journalist presses her about  the term “accepting ” and what she  actually means by that, you see the tension in her lower jaw which is not a good sign. Her eyes also open wide as though she has been “busted”.

Then she gets really formal in her verbiage as a means of protection and further indicating her vulnerability. She appears stiff and leans back as she attempts to distance herself.

Then she says there will be a review of their investigation, a review of what they found and a review of their determinations of how the case should proceed.

In essence it appears as though she is passing the buck. After all, she is the Attorney General who needs to make that decision, not the staff  who did the investigation and are making the recommendations. In essence, this means she is distancing herself and attempting to cover herself.

The excellent  journalist  then asks if the review will be done by her. You see her neck muscles tighten up as she continues to use the back of her hand  as opposed to her palms to spin the answer .

Screen Shot 2016-07-02 at 11.34.39 AM

The journalist’s body language reveals that he is on to her spin and double talk as he points a finger at her, something that is never done unless the person is feeling hostile toward the other . The  journalist’s finger point indicates his anger and frustration with Lynch’s answers.

She then says how the “initial” process will be resolved where she discusses the team involvement. She does NOT discuss the” final “process which is very telling.  She has now said how “career people” in the Dept of Justice will review it and how the FBI will review it and the FBI Director will review it and that will be the” finalization”.  But this does not make sense as she is the Attorney General who must make the final decision. If the FBI Director  is in the “finalization “why have her deal with the matter in the first place and why not just have the FBI Director make his “finalization” and decision and leave it at that?

Jonathan  then asks Lynch why she is relying on “career “people in the review process. She doesn’t answer the question, but  instead she spins it, and says  how the public wants to know what her role would likely be.. um was um a question or concern. The ums and phumpherting is not  a good sign. She says that because she is a political appointee there would be concern about how the case would go forward. Well what about career people in the government? Does the question arise that they may investigate a certain way because they may want to be politically correct and  have a vested interest in maintaining their careers?  Then she says that she has always maintained that this matter would UM be UM handled by the career people who are independent.  BUT ARE THEY REALLY INDEPENDENT IS THE REAL QUESTION?

She then says she will be informed of those findings as opposed to never seeing or reading them,  but she will be accepting their recommendation. This statement is startling  to the public as she revealed that there are cases that she never sees or reads.

Then Jonathan Capehart asks her what she was thinking when the former President Clinton was on the plane. She said they spoke about his grandchildren and then she gave tangential information about how the grandchildren were great . ( That is too much information. Then she said they spoke about Janet Reno, Then she says “It really was a social meeting. It really was”

When people  the word REALLY, and they use it many times in a sentence it may be a signal that they are often  trying too hard to convince you and that it may very well be a signal of deception.

In keeping with his excellence in journalism, Jonathan Capehart poses a question about how President Clinton first  selected her for office and how they are good friends and why she didn’t ask him to leave the plane. She doesn’t answer the question. Instead, she  says she certainly wouldn’t do it again. Of course she wouldn’t because of all the backlash. But  her refusal to answer that specific question speaks volumes.

When Capehart  asks her what she would say to the American people who had concerns that the system was rigged. Instead of answering  it directly, she double talks and says how she can understand how the public would feel that way because of her meeting with President Clinton on the plane. Then she answers by saying that the public has to look at what they do every day.  She needed to have said immediately instead of stretching it and hemming and hawing in order to sound more credible.

Screen Shot 2016-07-02 at 12.54.15 PM

Then when Jonathan Capehart  asked when we might expect the acceptance of these findings, she laughs. This is no laughing matter.  In fact to many her laughter was disconcerting as though the investigation might not be competed until after the election. She says in terms of timing I actually don’t know that.  She goes on to  deflect  her involvement as she says she doesn’t have  insight as to the nuts and bolts of the investigation. The question is WHY NOT? As Attorney General in a very high profile case, it would seem that she needed to be abreast of what was taking place every step of the way. She says how the Dept of Justice is working hard and she is proud of that work, YET SHE DOESN”T KNOW WHAT THAT WORK IS with regard to this case. This is known as double talk.It does not make sense that she as the Attorney General would not be informed at each stage.

Keep in mind this is NOT a political blog nor am I a political person.  I have NO agenda and no dog in this fight so to speak.. I would say the same thing if Trump was under investigation or any other political candidate was in the same situation as Hillary Clinton. As  body language expert my aim is to be neutral and to only report what I see and hear. What I have heard  with Loretta Lynch, the Attorney General of the US  during this interviwe in Aspen has been high anxiety, possible signals of deception, and a lot of  spin and double talk in Lynch’s  rhetoric.
