Hillary Clinton vs. James Comey: Email Scandal Supercut
The video above compares what Hillary Clinton said with what James Comey said. Yesterday I heard someone speaking about Pirkei Avot and she asked the question, "Why does it say "Hu Haya Omer" as opposed to "Hu Amar"? Below are two explanations.
Whenever a statement in Pirke’ Avos is introduced with the words, “He used to say”-“Hu Haya Omer” the Rav Bartenura, explains it to mean that he said it frequently and repeatedly... Another explanation can be gleaned from the opposite of the following bizarre example:
A young doctor gave an amazingly clear presentation about the dangers associated with cigarette smoking. Everyone left the auditorium so inspired, informed, and impressed that it would be hard to imagine that anyone who witnessed the talk could ever touch one of those tobacco sticks. Yet the very next day that same doctor was spotted in the street dragging shamelessly on a cigarette.
When approached and reproached with both shock and dismay he responded in a cavalier fashion... So said this doctor, “What do you want from me? That was a lecture!”
Whenever the Mishne says, “Hu Haya Omer-He used to say” it may be read more literally, “He was what he spoke!”

The ability to guard and focus one’s eyesight correctly is the rectified “sense” of sight.
