The whopper, though, is that as a Secretary of State for the United States with a PhD in International Studies with a special focus on the Soviet Union and its relationship with Europe she doesn't know that after Hitler was overthrown, the President of the United States did in fact go back to Congress and seek a new authorization for the re-building of Europe. We call it the Marshall Plan, named after one of her predecessors. Of course it was opposed by the Republicans in Congress at the time so maybe that is why she draws a blank.
