Courtesy of Mediaite:Hillary came back and talked to press briefly, says she'll talk more "formally" later pic.twitter.com/BmGASSbJct— Liz Goodwin (@lizcgoodwin) September 5, 2016
“I am so happy to have you all with me!” said the enthusiastic Clinton, who is the standard-bearer for the Democratic party in 2016. “I was just waiting for this moment,” she continued, a wait that has gone on for what feels like decades.
“I wanted to welcome you onto the plane,” she offered, while she got peppered with questions from the gathered reporters like, “How was your Labor Day?” “Are you ready?,” and “Do you have a Labor Day message?”
“Oh, I do, you’ll hear it.”
Okay so Clinton talked to the press that follows her around from location to location.
And yes it has been awhile since she made herself available to them.
To better understand why that might be you only have to refer to the headline for this Mediaite piece:
BREAKING: Candidate Who Hates and Ignores the Press Will ‘More Formally’ Take Questions Today
Yeah, that's how it's written.
There are also a number of rather ugly shots taken at Hillary in the rest of the post.
Gee, why would Clinton not be in a hurry to make herself available to this group?
As the somewhat more balanced Politico reported this is a new plane on which both the candidate and the press will fly together to future campaign stops, which means that Hillary will share a closer proximity with the press from here on out.
So yes she will be answering more questions.
Personally I do not blame Hillary for avoiding press conference and reporter's questions lately as the majority of them would undoubtedly be attempts to make hay of the non-scandals created by the Right Wing media.
Everything she says will get taken out of context and she will forever be answering questions that she has already answered a thousand times before. Who in their right mind looks forward to that?
