Well, it keeps going away (in the media, that is), but her likely criminal behavior keeps emerging. Despite the media’s best efforts, Grandma’s got a lot of problems, and it’s not the GOP’s fault.
On Sunday, reporters on ABC’s Good Morning America and This Week repeatedly complained that the controversy surrounding Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail while at the State Department “won’t go away.”
On GMA, ABC’s Clinton reporter Cecilia Vega labeled the scandal “e-mailgate” before she whined to George Stephanopoulos that the story “just won’t go away.” The ABC reporter then sympathetically questioned whether or not the story was “hurting her out there on the trail?”
Here’s a radical idea: Why don’t you go out and ask people? Crazy thought, huh?
After Stephanopoulos noted that in multiple polls “the number of people who consider her [Hillary Clinton] not trustworthy continue to remain high” he made sure to stress that there’s no evidence it is having a “fatal” impact on her 2016 bid.
On This Week, Stephanopoulos continued to complain that the e-mail story was still in the news as he asked Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison: “These questions about the e-mails don’t go away. How much are you worried that this is hurting her campaign?”
After the Democrat rushed to defend Hillary from the “nonstory” Stephanopoulos tried his best to defend Mrs. Clinton over a report in the New York Times in which an inspector general asked the Department of Justice to investigate whether or not she sent classified documents from her private e-mail server:
One of the things that the Clinton campaign says this is happening all the time, we’re victimized by these huge headlines that aren’t backed up by the story that’s there.
She’s a strong powerful woman, the smartest woman in the world(!), yet somehow remains a victim. Of her own doing, we might add.
Meanwhile, we sure hope those meanies in the GOP don’t overreach while questioning Her Thighness.
