Still a softball interview
While riding the Sunday talk show circuit, Hillary Clinton encountered what should’ve been a brutal segment on her long-standing history of philosophical changes. On Meet the Press, a damning mashup called Clinton vs. Clinton would have been an uncomfortable for just about anyone one else, but not for Hillary.
The former Secretary of State was at ease watching and addressing video footage of her ever-changing beliefs. Of course it didn’t hurt that Todd didn’t ask one single challenging question, either.
Unlike his interviews with other candidates, Meet the Press host Chuck Todd sat back and lobbed a volley of softball questions at Mrs. Clinton. He didn’t concoct a scenario, like oh, say, “would you build a border wall between the U.S. and Canada?” like he did with now defunct GOP candidate Governor Scott Walker.
Contrast Todd’s method of questioning to Hillary with his handling of guest Carly Fiorina:
While I appreciate the handy highlight reel of Hillary’s flip-flops, let’s not pretend Todd was seriously challenging Clinton’s reed-like tendencies.
Update: NBC News Blocks All Hillary Meet the Press Interviews, Cites Copyright Infringement
When we published this article, the Clinton vs. Clinton segment of Meet the Press was available on YouTube. Moments later, every copy was blocked by NBC News, so we replaced the cut with the video from NBC’s site.
