Hillary Promises To Deliver Regular Press Conferences... On One Condition

Tyler Durden's picture

As of today, it has been 273 (call it an absolute zero) days since Clinton’s last formal press conference on December 4, 2015, something even the left-leaning WaPo and NYT have expressed outrage against. Naturally, as questions mount if and when the Democratic Presidential candidate will finally speak to the press, overnight Clinton's press secretary, Brian Fallon, had some good news, when he assured an ABC News podcast that she will hold regular press conferences, but under one condition.

That she is president, or as Nancy Pelosi might put it, "you have to elect her, to ask her questions."

This is not a joke: this is how ABC put it, "Clinton’s lead press secretary, Brian Fallon, vowed that if elected, “Hillary Clinton will hold press conferences.” And here we were worried that if elected, Hillary would serve Clinton Foundation corporation and Middle Eastern donors for (at least) 4 years without speaking to the press at least once (an idea Trump may want to consider).

Fallon, seemingly unaware of how this statement sounded, added that "The amount of interaction can only go up," noting that the traveling press will soon be flying with Clinton on her new campaign plane.

“I’m sure that will bring with it a lot of opportunities for additional access to the candidate and interactions between her and the traveling press corps that covers her every day,” Fallon told ABC News’ chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl, and political director Rick Klein on the podcast.

He continued: “we are very respectful of the press and the job that they have to do. We have done a lot of interviews, but I know that no matter how many questions we answer in a variety of formats, it is the press’s job to always demand more access. We respect that, and so we’re going to seek further ways to accommodate that in the remaining months of the campaign.”

So... maybe at least one more press conference before November 8?

Of course, it's just the press that a "very respectful" Hillary has shut out: as the NYT's Amy Chozick put it, "Hillary hasn't been hiding this summer. She's been answering constant questions... from the ultra wealthy." In other words, if anyone wants to know what Hillary is thinking just ask her. But first make sure you have at least 8 figures in your bank account, and are willing and able to "donate" a substantial portion of it.

At a private fund-raiser Tuesday night at a waterfront Hamptons estate, Hillary Clinton danced alongside Jimmy Buffett, Jon Bon Jovi and Paul McCartney, and joined in a singalong finale to “Hey Jude.”

 

Mr. Trump has pointed to Mrs. Clinton’s noticeably scant schedule of campaign events this summer to suggest she has been hiding from the public. But Mrs. Clinton has been more than accessible to those who reside in some of the country’s most moneyed enclaves and are willing to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to see her. In the last two weeks of August, Mrs. Clinton raked in roughly $50 million at 22 fund-raising events, averaging around $150,000 an hour, according to a New York Times tally.

What the NYT is really telling us is that just as Hillary collected anywhere between $150 and $250k per hour-long "speech" before her presidential campaign from influence peddling corporations and sovereigns, she is now doing... pretty much the same.

And while Mrs. Clinton has faced criticism for her failure to hold a news conference for months, she has fielded hundreds of questions from the ultrarich in places like the Hamptons, Martha’s Vineyard, Beverly Hills and Silicon Valley.


Hillary Clinton arrived last Sunday for a fund-raiser at a private
home in North Haven, N.Y.

It also appears that Hillary's a la carte pay-to-play menu has expanded:

For a donation of $2,700, the children (under 16) of donors at an event last month at the Sag Harbor, N.Y., estate of the hedge fund magnate Adam Sender could ask Mrs. Clinton a question. A family photo with Mrs. Clinton cost $10,000, according to attendees.

The Rotschilds were particularly caring:

Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a backer of Democrats and a friend of the Clintons’, made sure attendees did not grill Mrs. Clinton at the $100,000-per-couple lamb dinner Mrs. Forester de Rothschild hosted under a tent on the lawn of her oceanfront Martha’s Vineyard mansion.“I said, ‘Let’s make it a nice night for her and show her our love,’”

 

Mrs. Forester de Rothschild said.

Justin Timberlake, just another member of the middle class, was especially thrilled with a recent close encounter with the presidential candidate "for the people."

But for once, the damning condemnation belongs to the NYT:

"If Mr. Trump appears to be waging his campaign in rallies and network interviews, Mrs. Clinton’s second presidential bid seems to amount to a series of high-dollar fund-raisers with public appearances added to the schedule when they can be fit in. Last week, for example, she diverged just once from her packed fund-raising schedule to deliver a speech.... when she has had a give-and-take this summer about issues, Mrs. Clinton, who has promised to “reshuffle the deck” in favor of the middle class and portrayed Mr. Trump as an out-of-touch billionaire, has almost exclusively been fielding the concerns of the wealthiest Americans.

And while Hillary's transcripts from her countless Wall Street speeches are now forever "lost", perhaps a recording of some of Hillary's presentations at one or more of these ultra-exclusive Hamptons "fundraisers" will finally emerge. After all, it was the infamous recording of Mitt Romney's statement about the "47%" that finally crushed his chances to become president almost exactly one year ago. One can be dead certain that the comments coming out of Hillary's mouth, if revealed, would be far more dire to her image as "one of the people."

As for the press, so desperate to ask Hillary a question, perhaps you should have been born to rich Hillary donor parents. That, or to paraphrase Janet Yellen, you should have just been rich, and able to afford the $100,000 "Rothschild lamb dinner." For everyone else, our condolences: you will be forced to write fawning pieces about Hillary by your media and corporate masters, without having ever been granted an audience.

At least if she is elected we go off that cliff Thelma and Louise style.

They really don't have a clue how arrogant, elitist and completely out of touch they sound to reasoning people. It goes further than that. They are actually insane.

"And while Hillary's transcripts from her countless Wall Street speeches are now forever "lost""

That's because there WERE NO SPEECHES GIVEN!!!  Why waste time giving a speech?  Just GIVE HILLARY the MONEY!!!

Check her SOS schedule.  Does it coincide with her so called speech?  I content she was handed millions of dollars of money, right in front of everyone's nose's, without doing ANYTHING for it.  Someone INVESTIGATE THIS!!

Perhaps we should tell her: "We will elect you to be the POTUS if you give up your presidential nomination."

Problem is, it's difficult to charge admission  to a Presser so the risk/reward calculation is very high. Of course, even there were Pressers our illustrious MSM "journailsts" would ask her tough questions like "what is your favorite color Madame Secy?". So I concur that they are a waste of eveyones time....

HRC wants everyone to trust her on this one.... yes, yes, she's lied about everything else, but she really needs everyone to trust her on this one.  If elected, she really, really, really will hold press conferences.  Anyone who believes that may as well eat the blue pill, and why not, go ahead and invest in treasury bonds too.  I mean, heck, why not, the Fed is, so if it's good enough for the Fed, it's good enough for you...

The Cliintons are the King and Queen of the Free Shit Army.  They get more free shit because of the government than anyone in this country.  It must be nice to speak for an hour for a quarter million dollars then be flown back home on a private jet.  And that's really just the tip of the iceberg.

The Clintons are trailer trash and should die in the same plane crash with Soros.

I really wish Hunter Thompson was still alive & covering this election. Can you imagine what he would write ? Fear and Loathing on the E-mail Trail.

Exactly right! They are pure White Trash!

Drag a dollar bill through a low rent trailer park and you will come out with a piece of shit Cliton! No matter how much money they steal they will always be trash, low life trash. The Hildacunt and her punk ass husband know this, and that's why they are part of the perma-pissed.

I've come to the conclusion that Hillary and Bill are both hooked on drugs and alcohol. She has seizures due to cocaine abuse, insomnia due to going off alcohol before running. The black doctor treats sleep disorders and epilepsy. Remember in Martha's vineyard when Bill fell down the stairs and broke his leg.

Hillary triple water, that is addiction, charlatan, cocaine, booze, lies, fraud.

Clinton fake chairty

97% of the funds don't go to chairty, they go to shell corporations, pass through accounts, and finally into their pockets.

HIV drugs to Africa, the drugs were made in India by some pharma company and were fake.

The Clinton's are white niggers who somehow made it to the white house and on the way out they stole George Washingtons dishes.

Let's show our love of humanity by executing Mrs. Forester de Rothschild and her ilk... and then reclaiming every last cent of interest she and her kosher klan have swindled from us in the form of usury over the past 300 years.

Terminus C's picture

It goes way beyond the interest.  The interest is just the gravy, the chains.

They printed as much money as they wanted, to buy any asset they wanted, out of nothing.

Those people also own the controlling shares in all the Fortune 500 companies.

The goal is total control of everything and everyone, bondage.

It is Saturn, Satan.

Hillary totally goes against the definition of a Public Servant:

"With regard to Americans generally, the president is not our "commander" but instead our elected public servant, subject to the mandates of the law like every other citizen and subordinate to the will of the people."

Just had a thought - she keeps unspent cash tax free, correct? Wouldn't it be beyond hilarious if it was all about the Benjamin's? She collects a billion dollars and resigns from the race citing "health reasons?"

If she pulled such an epic heist playing so many corps and rich suckers for tools, I'd actually kind of respect her.

Still respect her under any circumstances?

You can do such with 100 % media control. No questions asked.

Too bad most aren't reasoning people and just lap up the crap this witch says.

I'll never understand the Hitlery supporters. With ehr, you have the evidence she is an evil twat and evidence of scandals. Trump is a piece of gargae as well but at least with him you don't have the guarantee of evil like you do Hitlery.

Such a sad state when you have both those twats as your main choices.

I loved Jane Fonda.  She was right.

jeff montanye's picture

she was right about the vietnam war, utter waste of blood and money. the vietnamese did nothing to us (and they are still making t shirts for fruit of the loom).  it was an anti colonialist war that started with the french and only because john foster dulles was a complete asshole like his brother and kennedy assassin allen was it even a war after 1954.  if we had let them alone they would have been fine and probably the khmer rouge would have never committed genocide.  we are utter fools in foreign policy since . . . ?

plus she's a hell of an actress with many excellent films.  hillary on the other hand has no admirable accomplishments at fucking all.

Overfed's picture

Jane Fonda was correct in that the Vietnam war was bullshit. However, her collaboration with the VC got men killed, which makes her a traitor. The war on terror is total bullshit, but I wouldn't for one second consider doing anything for any of our "enemies", even if it is true that our government created them. BTW, I didn't junk you.

Speaking of Fonda - My Icon is a pic I snapped of her image affixed to the bottom of a urinal.
