The Internet is a buzz with the latest Hillary Clinton scandal, or conspiracy according to her campaign, regarding her alleged “earpiece” use during last night’s Presidential Forum.
Pictures are circulating Twitter showing the left side of Clinton’s face with what appears to be a pearl colored, ear canal shaped device in her left ear.
It appears to be a wireless communication device, the kind that Secret Service agents would wear, except without the wire. This earpiece Clinton had in her ear during the forum would indicate someone was communicating, or coaching, her through the questions that were being asked.
Or, maybe it was a safe guard in case Hillary “froze up” during a question and needed someone to coach her through it.

Due to the firestorm over Clinton’s ear piece today, and the massive Twitter response using the hashtag #HillarysEarPiece, her campaign has issued an official statement regarding this object. An article from Fox News states:
“Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said what is seen in the photo is merely a reflection of the TV lights or a flash,”
I don’t think the Clinton campaign put enough effort into this earpiece explanation, as it’s clearly not a reflection of the light or flash, it’s an actual object that is shaped perfectly to fit into someone’s ear discretely.
Conservative actor James Woods even joined the fray, pointing out the Hillary earpiece in his tweet.

The alternative news website True Pundit published a story in which an NYPD source claimed Hillary Clinton was wearing an “inductive earpiece.
NYPD sources involved with the NBC forum’s security detail confirm Clinton was wearing an ‘inductive earpiece,” the same technology employed by almost all lead Broadway actors to receive forgotten lines and stealth off-stage cues from directors. The flesh-colored earbud is easily concealed. There are no wires running directly to the ear like you see with the units employed by Secret Service protection detail personnel.
According to this source Clinton was utilizing a “flesh-colored” earbud that is suppose to be easily concealed, and would have been if her hair was covering it at the right angle.
Perhaps the Clinton campaign staff did not prepare her hair correctly in order to cover this earpiece, but from the pictures you can clearly see it’s an very real object, although not “flesh” colored, it is in a shape that would fit comfortably into the ear canal.
Another interesting piece of the puzzle has emerged, as Wikileaks emails from Hillary Clinton reveal that she does in fact use earpieces from time to time:

The email is dated 2009, and it’s from trusted Clinton aid Huma Abedin asking Hillary, “Did you take your earpiece or do I need to get it?”
Apparently using an earpiece is common for Hillary Clinton, as she’s been using one for the past 6 years at least.
How many speeches and public appearances has Hillary used an earpiece as an aid to receive coaching and answers?
Whether Hillary was receiving answers to the questions at last night’s Presidential Forum, or the earpiece was simply there as a backup in case she froze, we may never know. But with the amount of trust issues that Clinton has as a candidate, with a poll from July showing 68% of voters find her dishonest, it’s clear that these rumors of coaching will only further convince voters that she is unfit to be President of the United States.
If this really was a communication device, which I truly believe it is, we’ll know more when Hillary arrives for the first presidential debate later this month. If her hair is arranged to purposefully cover her ears, then we’ll know something is up.
And if a presidential candidate requires an earpiece to receive proper answers to questions from the public, is that a candidate we really want running the country? A candidate that cannot even answer honestly from her own mind and requires teams of officials to make sure she is saying what people what to hear.
I’d rather have Donald Trump, a candidate that speaks from his heart and has some occasional gaffs, than a candidate who needs someone pulling her strings in order to function in public.
