Nicole Wallace Reminds Hillary Campaign That Sit-down Interviews Are Different Than Pressers
Hillary Clinton's Campaign Chief Robby Mook is running out of robotic talking points to use when responding to questions about the Democratic nominee's lack of press conferences. When MSNBC anchor Nicole Wallace pressed him about Clinton not holding a press conference in over 260 days, Mook noted - again - that Clinton has done hundreds of sit-down interviews.

Wallace, annoyed that Mook thought sit-down interviews were the same thing as pressers, reminded him that they are not.

"I didn't talk about interviews. I know the difference between a 3-minute ground-ruled interview and a press conference because I've put on a couple of each," she said. "Why wouldn't you put [Clinton] out there to answer questions that she can certainly handle if your defense is true?"

Well, why isn't the media asking Trump about his "foreign connections," Mook responded, avoiding a direct answer.

Wallace again noted that Clinton's avoiding the press only suggests there is truth to the report that the Clinton Foundation was granted special access to the State Department while she was secretary of state.

Mook laughed off these follow-up questions.
