Seems like hillary is actually going to hold a press conference today. Sort of?


Today, Hillary Clinton is speaking to a room full of Black and Latinx journalists in Washington, D.C.

Clinton's session will be important no matter what she says, but she could decide to make news by holding a formal question-and-answer session with the assembled reporters — something she has not done for about 250 days.



Possible hillary press conference

Just heard about this on the news, but still no confirmation that she will actually speak to a full house of journalists.



To be sure, Clinton has not needed to take questions from the press to increase her standing in the polls. Her opponent continues to suffer from self-inflicted missteps following last month’s Republican National Convention, gaffes that don't require prompting from Clinton.

And there's risk to taking questions, too. A press conference could elicit stumbles as she tries to respond to unexpected questions on the fly.



Let's see how this goes.

Don't get your hopes up yet, no confirmation.

Some submitted questions:


Does this count as a press conference? t.co...

Former News and Record editor John Robinson suggested those in attendance attempt to get her to commit to a regular schedule.

@acnatta @kristenhare @HillaryClinton Will you pledge to have at least monthly news conferences beginning right now?

Good to know. If we need somebody to MC a meet-n-greet for Satan, we know where allegiances lay. Lol

It would be nice if they had a real hot dog reporter in there that keeps asking the scary questions about the Clinton foundation, the arms, Pay to play, email scandals, etc.

I bet nobody dares ask her to explain the government reports that proves she lies.

This does not count as a proper press conference. If she answers questions from the press, I expect them to be softly lobbed in her direction. I rather expect any questions and answers to be scripted should they occur at all.

Considering most of the journalist in those organizations lean hard left I'd expect nothing but softball questions...

On now.

She is well aware she is made fun of about her plans.

Hold me accountable.

She has something in spanish for all americans..

Hey hillary, amnesty is not immigration reform. Oh wait, she didn't say anything but about an old bill that didn't make it to the house.

wow, lots of words amounting to nothing.

Deporter in chief, won't break up families. A 2010 bill that was past in the senate. (see above)

oooooo, emails and Comey, did you lie?

She said she didn't lie to the FBI. But she knows she screwed up and lied to Wallace.

She's lying now still, lol.

If the news media were to do what is right, Hillary would walk off muttering and bitching after the consecutive third reporter asked her some of those unanswerable (unanswerable for Hillary) questions.

Lying again while bobbing her head and waving her arms all over the place.

"I never sent or received ......blah blah" "regret using 1 account...."

Mike Morell, endorses hillary and says Trump was turned by Putin, she won't touch it.

Hey, answer the question while we're still young!

Another BS story about coal country.

lol, call him out and work your heart out for what people are owed! Yes, owed! lol. (start with honesty)

Children again.

Wow, someone just asked why are so many racists supporting Trump.

Can you say scripted softballs.

Vetted questions is par for the course. Can someone interview these "journalists" to see what they had to go through, or what/if they had to submit anything before being allowed in this segregated dog and pony show?

Martin Luther King is rolling over in his grave.

Wow.. those were some real hard-hitting questions guys.

We finally got to see unscripted hillary.

Sorry for wasting everyone's time. Excuse me while I go puke.

Now her followers can say she had a press conference.

This is the same as me saying I can teleport.

I just use an airplane and it takes a few hours.

Looks like the "press conference" was fixed and obviously scripted.

That's all part of the campaign agenda.

Dodge & Deflect is the goal.

That was appalling.

It was far worse than even I expected. One thing confirmed is that she is not ready nor is she able to handle a real press conference with serious questions from real journalists. Even in a scripted carefully planned environment she had difficulty in responding.

But this was not a true press conference. I suspect the Clinton supporters will claim this as her press conference, but this was nothing of the sort.
