Clinton: People in the Press Have Told Me They ‘Overdid’ Coverage of My Emails

Hillary Clinton reflected on media coverage of her emails today, claiming that some members of the press have admitted to her they “overdid” it. In an exchange flagged earlier by the Washington Free Beacon, MSNBC’s Joy Reid asked Clinton about what she has to say about the media’s coverage of her emails. Clinton started out by saying, “I made the original mistake, but, you know, people running for office make all kinds of mistakes. I mean, Trump had a million mistakes… That didn’t matter.” As for the media, Clinton had this to say:
“I’ve talked to members of the press, because, look, I am a huge proponent of the First Amendment, and we need a really smart, savvy press. And here is what members of the press have basically said to me. ‘First of all, yeah, it was a legitimate subject to cover, we overdid it.’ And Continue reading "Clinton: People in the Press Have Told Me They ‘Overdid’ Coverage of My Emails"

Hillary Clinton Applauds Jimmy Kimmel: He’s Holding Republicans Accountable

During her interview with MSNBC’s Joy Reid this morning, Hillary Clinton singled out Jimmy Kimmel for praise over going so public with his health care advocacy. Three nights in a row this week, Kimmel went off on the Graham-Cassidy bill, calling Senator Bill Cassidy a liar and encouraging people to call their senators. A report yesterday revealed that Kimmel consulted with outside groups and Chuck Schumer‘s office on health care specifics. Clinton and Reid discussed the GOP’s Obamacare repeal efforts before Clinton said this:
“I want to give a shoutout to Jimmy Kimmel, who has used his own personal experience with the birth of his son to really hold the Republicans accountable. We can’t let them get away with these outrageous, untrue comments.”

Clinton: Why Do Female Trump Supporters ‘Publicly Disrespect Themselves’ by Opening Door to Sexism?

Hillary Clinton spoke with MSNBC’s Joy Reid this morning and at one point they discussed President Trump‘s female supporters. Reid brought up the “Lock Her Up” chants and said, “I can remember being in Cleveland and seeing women putting buttons and t-shirts on that used the b-word, the c-word about you. When you saw that, how did that make you feel?” Clinton called that “deeply troubling on several levels,” especially with a candidate for President “giv[ing] permission to those views,” as she argued. But then she added this:
“When I see women doing that, I think, ‘Why are they publicly disrespecting themselves? Why are they opening the door to have someone say that about them in their workplace, in a community setting?’ Do they not see the connection there? And I think that’s one of the problems with sexism… I’m happy to have people disagree with me.

I Love You Ellen DeGeneres, But You’re a Hypocrite

Ellen DeGeneres is a national treasure. Her career has spanned decades from comedian, to actress, to talk show host and she was a trailblazer for the LGBTQ community. She’s warm, funny, charitable, and overall seems like a decent human being. But even the greatest of human beings can be hypocrites. Earlier this week, she sat down with Megyn Kelly, whose daytime talk show airs next week on NBC. And there was a portion of the interview when DeGeneres asked Kelly whether she’d have President Trump on her show. “Definitely,” Kelly answered. “I mean, I would not say no to the sitting president of the United States.” Let’s just say DeGeneres felt differently. “I would not have him on [my] show,” she declared. “He is who he is and he has enough attention, he has his Twitter account, and he has ways to get his message across. There’s nothing Continue reading "I Love You Ellen DeGeneres, But You’re a Hypocrite"
