When it comes to interacting with the media, Hillary Clinton and her supporters are accustomed to: a.) getting softball questions from the press (e.g., favorite ice cream flavor?); b.) shielding themselves from questions altogether or c.) lassoing the media into submission. So perhaps it’s understandable that they get a little dodgy when asked a substantive question — especially when it involves that pesky little thing called TRUTH.
Maybe that’s why Democratic strategist and long-time Clinton ally Lanny Davis saw no other option but to HANG UP mid-interview when asked about Mrs. Clinton’s recent lie that she’d never received a subpoena.
You must watch it for yourself; it’s just too good to miss.
Friday on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” long-time Clinton ally Lanny Davis hung up the phone after being questioned about Hillary Clinton falsely claiming she “never had a subpoena” from the House Select Committee on Benghazi about her emails.Davis first tried to claim Clinton was speaking in time-frame context, saying she “probably misunderstood” the question, but then became angrier when the host played a clip of the CNN interview, causing Davis to hang up.
Malzberg responded to the hang up saying “This is pathetic. Really pathetic.”
I think the visibly fired up Malzberg captures the sentiments of many of us who’ve had enough of what he dubs the “Clinton way.”
“You see, that’s the Clinton way. Trash the messenger… That’s the Clinton M.O. You know what, America, you just saw it, you just heard it. And I’m sure you’re sick of it. ‘Cause I’m sick of it. And you know what, Lanny? You chose to hang up. You want to come back and apologize? You’re free to do that. Until that, take the Clintonspeak somewhere else — not here with me.”
Here’s to Malzberg for holding Clinton accountable for her own words! And here’s to more of that from the media as the 2016 campaign gets into full swing.
