Hillary Clinton named her hardly-read autobiography “Hard Choices.” I only mention that because of the irony — this is a candidate who can’t even handle hard questions.
Anyone in the media who asks her something that might require her to take a definitive stand automatically gets in trouble. That’s what happened earlier this week when a reporter from The Washington Post was interviewing Clinton and asked her, “Do you think that Donald Trump is a racist?”
That was when a Clinton aide jumped in to end the interview.
“Anne, we’re gonna, we’re going to have to go,” Clinton aide Nick Merrill said as he jumped in. Reporter Anne Gearan noted that the interview had only gone 90 seconds over its allotted time, so the reason for the interruption wasn’t entirely clear.
Clinton did end up answering it, probably because she knew it would be a problem if she didn’t.
“Well, I’ll just, yeah, I’ll answer that,” Clinton said. “I don’t know what’s in his heart. I have no way of telling that. I can just say that if you look at what he’s been proclaiming since he started the campaign, he has been engaging in divisive and prejudiced attacks against people.”
Hillary continued that “even though I can’t say what’s in his heart, if you say someone can’t do their job because of their heritage, that is certainly a racist attack. And it’s just plain wrong. It has no place in our politics … And I think part of the reason he launched that attack using the racist language he did was to divert attention from the scam that is Trump University.”
Clinton, of course, has been trying to divert attention from the numerous scandals that have plagued her campaign, which is probably why she’s been so eager to jump on the train of defending a judge with a clear conflict of interest and a case nowhere near as damning as any number of things she’s done.
It’s a long way to November, Hillary — and you’re going to be answering a lot more hard questions. And unlike these interviews, an aide can’t jump in for you during the debates.
