Hillary Clinton’s Top 7 Famous Lies — Does the Truth Matter?

#5 – SIR EDMUND HILLARY

For years, Hillary Clinton claimed to be named after famous mountaineer Edmund Hillary. Former president Bill Clinton even mentioned the story in his 2004 autobiography. Hillary met Sir Edmund in 1995 and shortly thereafter made the comment that her mother had named her after him. “It had two l’s, which is how she thought she was supposed to spell Hillary,” Mrs. Hillary said after the meeting. “So when I was born, she called me Hillary, and she always told me it’s because of Sir Edmund Hillary.”

One problem. Edmund Hillary did not become famous until after he became the first to climb to the summit of Mt. Everest in 1953 — six years after Hillary Clinton was born.
