MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell expressed anger and frustration at Hillary Clinton’s campaign Monday, admitting that the corporate media has been going out of its way to counter ‘conspiracy theories’ about her health, while all along Clinton was indeed covering it up.
“This was so botched. This was so mishandled.” Mitchell declared on Morning Joe, clearly annoyed that she and her colleagues have been duped into covering for Hillary.
“The whole issue of transparency and this only reinforces all of the conspiracy theories, ” she continued.
“I mean, we’ve all been trying to fact-check and pointing out that there’s nothing wrong with her,” Mitchell said.
“I’m out on the campaign with her. Aside from that cough, she has more energy than I do or half of the press corps which is a lot younger than her.” the anchor claimed.
Mitchell added that Clinton has an “obligation” to inform the public about her health.
“They did not say anything on Friday when they had an affirmative obligation to the public through us after telling us that the cough in Cleveland on Labor Day was just seasonal allergies.” Mitchell noted.
“After she had an exam on Friday morning, they had an affirmative obligation to tell us about the diagnosis of pneumonia, and then the secrecy yesterday and for an hour-and-a-half the press corps, the protective press pool, the pool of reporters, which is supposed to be with her just for this kind of emergency, they are kept back at the ceremony,” Mitchell added.
“They’re not told she’s gone to Chelsea’s apartment. Then they’re brought there so that we can see her coming out looking very spry and hugging the little girl, and then eight hours after this first happened they finally tell us about the diagnosis of pneumonia that occurred on Friday.” Mitchell urged, obviously frustrated that she and her press colleagues have been being played like fiddles all along by Hillary and her staff.
Mitchell again popped up later on MSNBC programming to reiterate her annoyance.
“There’s never a good time for a candidate to get sick in the middle of a campaign, of course, but the way Clinton has handled this has likely made it a lot worse, especially since Donald Trump has been trying to make such a big issue out of her health,” Mitchell said on Today.
Now the story and the footage has gone viral, MSNBC has changed its tactics following coverage yesterday as the situation unfolded where the network desperately attempted to cover for Hillary, repeatedly blaming everything from the weather to Hillary’s pantsuit for her collapse:
