It had been 280 days since Hillary Clinton held a press conference (don’t count the questions asked by friendly reporters at the Hispanic journalists convention) — until today.
Clinton flew in her new plane and to mark the occasion, she agreed to take a few questions from the travelling press.
Judging from the questions these reporters asked her after 280 days of silence, you have to wonder why she’s been avoiding them.
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton greeted the press who are traveling on her new airplane on Monday morning and took a few questions.
Clinton, under pressure for not holding a press conference for nearly 280 days, was peppered with questions like, “How was your Labor Day weekend?” Another question: “Are you ready?”
“Do you have a Labor Day message?” one reporter asked.
“I do, you’ll hear it,” Clinton answered. “I definitely, I definitely do. If you want more happy Labor Days, you know who to vote for.”
“Thanks, I’ll come back later,” Clinton said as she exited the cabin that holds the press.
I suppose asking who gave the order to destroy your BlackBerries with a hammer, or how is it possible that you failed to turn over 15,000 emails, or why did you delete relevant emails after they were subpoenaed by Congress, doesn’t have quite the heft and gravitas of “Are you ready?”
