Donald Trump said lots (and lots) of thing during his hour-long town hall with Fox News’s Sean Hannity on Wednesday night.
This one — Trump talking about Hillary Clinton — stood out to me:
She is so protected. They are so protecting her. She hasn’t had a news conference in, like, 250 days.
It couldn’t be that long since Clinton has talked to the press, I thought. So, I went to the handy-dandy tool that some guy named Philip Bump built to track how long it’s been since Clinton faced the press. And this is what I found:
Almost 258 days! Trump undersold something!
Jokes aside, it’s beyond ridiculous that one of the two people who will be elected president in 80 or so days continues to refuse to engage with the press in this way.
But she does sit-down interviews! And she did a “press conference” with a moderator, um, moderating the questions!
Not good enough. Not when you are running to be president of the United States. One of the most important things when someone is offering themselves up to represent all of us is that we get the best sense we can about how that person thinks on his or her feet, how they deal with unwanted or adversarial questions. Those two traits are big parts of doing the job of president in the modern world.
Hillary Talks To Press, Then Kicks Them Out
Hillary Clinton wanted the media — and Americans — to know what she thinks about the police, but she didn’t want them to know what the police think about her policies.
Clinton, who looked tired and had bags under her eyes, made a quick appearance before cameras in New York today to show the opening to her meeting with several police chiefs from around the country.
Notice how not one single photographer used a camera FLASH while taking probably hundreds if not even thousands of photos of Hillary Clinton. As we previously reported Hillary is sensible to camera flashes and it may trigger some seizures in her:
After her statement, the media was promptly escorted from the room at John Jay College and prevented from covering the discussion.
We aren’t sure what she said to, or what was said by eight law enforcement officials, including outgoing New York City police commissioner Bill Bratton and his successor, James O’Neill; Charles Beck of the Los Angeles Police Department and former police chief Charles Ramsey of Philadelphia.
