A YouTube montage of Hillary Clinton’s various public statements over the years went viral on Tuesday after a newspaper and media titan Matt Drudge caught wind of its existence.

Hillary Clinton lying for 13 minutes straight” was posted in January but the video was injected with new life after an op-ed in The Washington Post by Kathleen Parker was shared on social media.

Hillary Clinton’s vast résumé of, shall we say, inconsistencies, is the dog that caught the car and won’t let go. A viral video collection of her comments on various subjects through the years is bestirring Republican hearts,” Ms. Parker wrote. “To those who’d rather vote for a reality show host than a Clinton, the video merely confirms what they’ve believed all along. For independents and even Democrats, it’s a reminder of how often Clinton has morphed into a fresh incarnation as required by the political moment.”

The video, posted by a YouTube account for Michael Armstrong, covers Mrs. Clinton’s various stances on same-sex marriage, the North American Free Trade Agreement, her infamous “secret server” as secretary of state, health care reform and the time she allegedly risked “sniper fire” in Bosnia.

The video had nearly 7 million views as of Wednesday afternoon. The creator also promised a future video for Republican hopeful Donald Trump.

“Two things are most striking about this video. The first is just how long Hillary has been stringing America along with whatever story suits her at the moment,” the conservative website Hotair responded after viewing the video. “It’s not as if there was one lie or one bad moment in a long career. She has done this from the moment she became a national figure and she’s still doing it right now. The second striking thing is the brazenness with which she tells stories that are not remotely accurate, such as the Bosnia airport trip.”

Post readers provided an alternative point of view.

“I could make a painful collection of all the stupid things you’ve said in your public career. You didn’t think five years of Benghazi hearings was enough harassment?” asked a reader identified as Walden.

“We don’t have to go back 30 years for Trump’s lies. We just have to go back less than a year — and it will be way more than 13 minutes,” added another reader.
