Anderson Cooper Gets Sassy With Hillary Clinton For Not Having Done A Press Conference In Over 260 Days

Gotta love Anderson Cooper. He’s not afraid to go there. You know what else he’s not afraid to do? Wrap up the interview with some nice little passive aggressiveness. “I know a lot of other reporters would love the chance to address you during a press conference, so just throwing that out there.” You sassy, sassy boy AC!

“I know your girlfriend wouldn’t mind hanging out with you on Saturday night either, just throwing that out there.” -your girlfriend

Look, it doesn’t matter which side you’re on — everyone knows and understands the playbook from Hillary at this point. With the Donald sporting more self-destructive tendencies than Jan Levinson, Hillary just needs to lay low and stop getting hacked by Russia and she’s the OVERWHELMING favorite to win. That’s it. Or “run out the clock,” the metaphor the media loves because they’re so in-touch and aware that football is right around the corner.

You know what’s not laying low? Press conferences. She hates those things. And who can blame her? When you’re the second most disliked presidential nominee running against the first most disliked presidential nominee, you don’t need press conferences. Add the fact that her husband is so good at press conferences that Obama once had to tag him in at a White House press briefing and yeah, she obviously hates those.

Regardless, love seeing Anderson call her out. Love seeing candidates squirm. Hopefully this is a nice little snippet into what it’s going to be like at the debates when Trump is calling her out for way, way, way smuttier things than presser history.


PS — Also, for your records, here are latest polls and RCP’s poll averages. Both with and without the “fringe candidates.”
