Hillary Clinton continues to avoid holding press conferences or answering any questions from reporters, a fact that is well known by members of the media, and is literally becoming a joke.
As Clinton visited House Democratic Caucus members Wednesday morning, she refused to answer questions as MSNBC reporter Kasie Hunt approached her.
When Hunt asked Clinton if she had a short list for vice presidential picks, Clinton did what she usually does, plastered on a fake smile and waved inanely.
Hunt, along with MSNBC anchor Jose Diaz-Balart began laughing at Clinton’s default position. “We tried, we tried,” Hunt said. “It’s not an uncommon thing.”
Indeed, as reported by The Washington Post this week, Clinton has not actually held an official press conference for over 200 days.

The last time that Clinton hosted a press conference was on Dec. 4, 2015, before a single vote had been cast in the Democratic presidential primary, or it was at all evident that Donald Trump was the GOP front runner, let alone the nominee, the Post reported.
The report described Clinton’s attitude as a “disturbing pattern for Clinton the candidate: a total lack of real interaction with the media who cover her,” adding that it is both “remarkable. And remarkably bad.”
Clinton seems to be following the precedent set by president Obama, who has rarely given interviews or spoken in depth with the press for most of his tenure.
In a keynote speech Wednesday, Trump slammed Clinton as the most corrupt presidential candidate of all time, and called her a ‘world-class liar’.
“Just look at her pathetic email server statements or her phony landing in Bosnia, where she said she was under attack, and the attack turned out to be young girls handing her flowers … This was one of the beauts. A total and self-serving lie.” Trump said.
The GOP nominee also told attendees that former NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams’ career was “destroyed for saying less.”
“Just remember that,” Trump urged.
Williams was suspended for six months last year after it emerged that he lied about and vastly exaggerated supposedly dangerous incidents he was involved in on the ground in Iraq.
