2. From the article:

Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina says that “so little” of the charitable donations to the Clinton Foundation “actually go to charitable works” — a figure CARLY for America later put at about 6 percent of its annual revenues — but Fiorina is simply wrong.
Fiorina and others are referring only to the amount donated by the Clinton Foundation to outside charities, ignoring the fact that most of the Clinton Foundation’s charitable work is performed in-house. One independent philanthropy watchdog did an analysis of Clinton Foundation funding and concluded that about 89 percent of its funding went to charity.
Simply put, despite its name, the Clinton Foundation is not a private foundation — which typically acts as a pass-through for private donations to other charitable organizations. Rather, it is a public charity. It conducts most of its charitable activities directly.

3. It's too easy to accept simplistic evaluations and too hard

to go and get the actual facts. That's why so many people don't really understand the things they read on the Internet.

The Clinton Foundation does its own work, rather than giving grants to other organizations. It is that simple. So, measuring it by how much it donates to other organizations simply isn't a valid measure.

6. Listen, if you can't saying anything negative about Hillary, don't say anything at all.
