Hillary Clinton Blows off Questions from the Press

Hillary Clinton Blows off Questions from the Press

Has answered only seven questions since announcing her run.

If you’re wondering why the Democratic Party’s presumed 2016 nominee has been quiet lately, you’re not alone.

Hillary Clinton has answered only seven questions from the media since announcing her run for president.

Zach C. Cohen of National Journal:

Here Are All Seven Media Questions Hillary Clinton Has Answered During Her Campaign

Most of the media questions Clinton has answered have focused on policy (the exact type of inquiry she recently encouraged reporters to focus on). They’ve touched on ongoing trans-Pacific trade negotiations, campaign finance, and foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation…

Here are all seven:

Question 1: “Secretary Clinton, your reaction please to these book allegations? Did foreign entities receive any special treatment for making any kind of donations to the foundation or your husband?”—ABC in Keene, New Hampshire, April 20

Clinton: “Well, we’re back into the political season, and therefore we will be subjected to all kinds of distraction and attacks. And I’m ready for that. I know that that comes unfortunately with the territory. It is, I think, worth noting that the Republicans seem to be talking only about me. I don’t know what they’d talk about if I weren’t in the race. But I am in the race, and hopefully we’ll get on to the issues, and I look forward to that.”

Question 2: “…Regarding the play for pay allegations in the latest book, emails back in 2012.”WMUR, a local ABC affiliate in New Hampshire

Clinton: “You know, those issues are, in my view, distractions from what this campaign should be about, what I’m going to make this campaign about, and I’ll let other people decide what they want to talk about. I’m going to talk about what’s happening in the lives of the people of New Hampshire and across America. Thank you, all.”

Read the whole list here.

This is a pattern.

When Mrs. Clinton isn’t avoiding questions from the press, she just blows them off.

Here she is avoiding a question about Baltimore:

Here’s the biggest question of all: Why is the media allowing her get away with this?

I guess we all know the answer to that question though, right?

“Here’s the biggest question of all: Why is the media allowing her [to] get away with this?”

They aren’t, as witnessed by your piece, and the clips of people…you know…asking her questions.

Reporters can’t tackle her, they can simply report on her deflections. Her phoniness is apparent for all to see, and she is just making her guilt more and more apparent.

    She is getting away with it. If a Republican pushed aside the media as much as she has, they would be furious and the news headlines would be “GOP Candidate refuses to answer questions about [whatever]”. Then they would speculate and tear the candidate apart.

      You’re partly right, of course.

      But juries look and listen to how people answer…or refuse to answer…questions.

      She’s hurting herself. And even the Mushroom Media and the Collective are aware of it. There’s blood in the water, and it will invite sharks and other big fish.

Reading those responses I’m reminded of Charles Durning in “Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” dancing a little 2-step.

Her mouth and butt have switched jobs.

When they do ask Hillary questions, they’re giving her an opportunity to rebut accusations, as they have for 30 years. It’s like: “So, Mrs. Clinton, what about these accusations?” setting the ball on the tee so she can spout her defense which the media then runs with. Except this go round, she’s not only offering the designed defense, she’s hiding from even being questioned. This tells us she has no defense.

President Hillary Lucretia Borgia does not stoop to answer ‘questions’ from ‘people’. Clear a path, peasant.

    Sammy Finkelman in reply to Empress Trudy. | April 29, 2015 at 12:01 pm

    She wants people to evaluate accusations or intimations of wrongdoing holistically, and gives reasons to dismiss them as ill-motivated or unimportant.

    She does claim to be talking to ‘people’

    “I wasn’t aware of the depth of feeling people had about the substance abuse issues. So here again I heard it in New Hampshire. So I want people to know that I’m listening, and I’m accessible, and I’m running a campaign that is about now, that is about the needs of the people of New Hampshire. That’s the kind of campaign I want to run. And I’m excited to be back here.”

    That’s her excuse to notice the fact that outside cities, oxyxontin and related drugs have created a drug problem, and when the rescrioptions are cut off, or the insurance stops paying, people go and buy much cheaper heroin.

    This heroin is being smuggkled in and sold by a new, relatively non-violent Mexican drug gang, that stays away from other gang’s stomping grounds, and from blacks.

    This is abook about it:

    Now Hillary is pretending to have learned about from ordinary people, and will come up with a non-solution that mostly involves spending money. The excuse for failiure would be that not enough money was spent.

Sure a lot of blowing going on in the Clinton camp.

And voters will blow off this corrupt, talentless hose-bag.
