The next Leader of the Free World, stumped by a fax machine as revealed in the latest email dump:
She claimed in April that she scrubbed the server of more than 31,000 emails which she deemed ‘personal’ in nature.
Twitter let out a collective guffaw Tuesday night in the direction of a December 2009 email exchange between Clinton and Abedin – who invested 15 minutes trying to teach her boss how the handset on a fax machine worked.
‘Can you hang up the fax line?’ Abedin wrote. ‘They will call again and try fax.’
‘I thought it was supposed to be off [the] hook to work?’ Clinton responded.
‘Yes,’ Abedin wrote, ‘but hang up one more time. So they can establish the line.’
‘I did,’ Clinton replied.
‘Just pick up [the] phone and hang it up. And leave it hung up,’ Abedin shot back.
‘I’ve done it twice now,’ replied a befuddled Hillary.
There’s an SNL sketch to be had out of this, with Huma trying to talk Hillary through working the nuclear football.
Wait — that’s not funny, is it?
