Hillary Clinton has been criticized for not doing a press conference this year. She’s pointed out that she’s done 300 or so interviews with members of the press since January, and of course there were those “debates” during which she responded to questions from the moderators, but she hasn’t stood in front of a crowd of reporters throwing random questions at her one after the other.
So it must have been a relief to Trump and her other critics when she stood in front of a crowd of reporters throwing random questions at her this week. It happened after she gave a brief address to the joint convention of the National Association of Black Journalists and National Association of Hispanic Journalists yesterday.
But one might say it was really a question and answer session. And it didn’t involve the entire White House press corps. But it sure looked and sounded like a press conference.
The first question is at 16:00 in the video below. Clinton’s detailed answer lasts 4 minutes and 40 seconds and shows yet again why she might be a great President. This being a press conference, of course, the next question has to do with emails.
