Hillary has failed to hold a press conference for over 275 days, but she has been more than accessible to the elite class of Wall Street bankers, Silicon Valley executives and Hollywood celebrities.
The Democratic vice presidential nominee, Tim Kaine, offered a weak defense for the reclusive behavior of his running mate.
“Really?” Kelly O’Donnell asked.
“I don’t see what the massive difference is between a press conference and talking to the press wherever you go,” Kaine replied, a statement which later caused laughter on a CNN panel.
Two days earlier, Hillary spent the night singing with Bon Jovi, Jimmy Buffet and Paul McCartney at a waterfront mansion in the Hamptons.
While hosting a $100,000-per-couple lamb dinner, Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild reminded guests to not pester their honored guest as she attended the fundraiser at an oceanfront estate in Martha's Vineyard.
“I said, ‘Let’s make it a nice night for her and show her our love,’” Mrs. Forester de Rothschild said.
As we learned from Wikileaks, Hillary holds nothing but love for the Rothschilds and other aristocratic families.
In one September 2010 email, Hillary served as messenger to Lady Rothschild when informing her that former British Prime Minister Tony Blair would not be attending a special dinner. Hillary also revealed something about the nature of their relationship.
“He is very sorry, obviously, but I’m grateful that he accepted my request,” Clinton wrote. “I hope you all understand and give him a raincheck.”
“Let me know what penance I owe you,” the Secretary of State wrote.
“I think it’s time for Hillary Clinton to do a news conference because it’s been almost a year now. And it would be interesting to see how she does,” Trump told the press.
Around 1.5 million Americans have attended a Trump rally within the past year. As Trump fills air hangers and stadiums, Hillary quietly skirts around elite banquets, rubbing elbows with the rich and famous.
"I think the political press is among the most dishonest people that I have ever met, I have to tell you. I see the stories, and I see the way they're couched," Trump said in a press conference.
As former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi put it, "you might have to elect her, to ask her questions."
