Right wingers look at the Clinton Foundation as if it is some sort of
international crime organization straight out of a James Bond movie, but
let's look at the facts.

The watchdog group, CharityWatch gives the foundation a strong “A.”  It
spent 88% of its 2014 outlays  on programs not overhead which is very good
for a charity, and it only had to spend $2 to raise $100. CharityWatch
president Daniel Borochoff says "*the available data indicates that the
Clinton Foundation is a top-tier institution in the philanthropic world*".

The Clinton Foundation spent $313 million for R&D to develop new vaccines.
Meanwhile  Donald Trump is helping to spread the unscientific imbecilic and
lethal urban myth that vaccines cause autism and said  "*Just the other
day, 2 years old, 2½ years old, a child, a beautiful child went to have the
vaccine, and came back, and a week later got a tremendous fever, got very,
very sick, now is autistic*."

Over the years the Clinton Foundation provided treatment for 36 million
people with tropical diseases and helped 27 million people get access to
safe drinking water.

I think the world needs more international crime organizations.
