This Is Why Hillary Hasn't Held a Press Conference in 262 Days

Posted: Aug 23, 2016 2:30 PM

Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton hasn't held a press conference in nearly a year. In fact, it's been 262 days since the former Secretary of State made herself available to answer questions outside of a handful of individual, controlled interviews. On the campaign trail, traveling press is frustrated and so is the country. 

Why isn't she taking questions? The answer is obvious. Remember what happened during one of her last press conferences? It was a total disaster. 

"Like, with a cloth or something?" 


That press conference prompted this, which was genius:

At least one journalism professor is justifying Clinton's lack of press conferences by....pointing out all of the things the press should be asking about.

Clinton isn't holding press conferences because she can't keep the lies straight about her private email server. Meanwhile, Donald Trump has held dozens of them since declaring his candidacy last year.
