Clinton on wiping server: ‘What, like with a cloth or something?’

The question is either: Just how stupid is Hillary Clinton when it comes to hiding her emails? Or just how stupid does she think we are?

In response to a question in Las Vegas Tuesday about whether she wiped her email server clean, as authorities have claimed, Clinton resorted with a coy rejoinder: “What, like, with a cloth or something?”

Insulting. But to whom?

She apparently was claiming to be utterly clueless about the issue of co-mingling her personal email with official business and how that might lead people to suspect she deleted emails that might prove embarrassing to her presidential campaign.

“Did you try to wipe the entire – so that there’d be no email, no personal and no official?” Fox News’ Ed Henry asked her.

She replied, “Well, my personal emails are my personal business.”

No one asked why she did not use one of the several electronic devices she carried for that personal business.

Henry pressed her repeatedly until she came up with the Tuesday version of the what-difference-does-it-make-now? response.

“I don’t know how it works digitally at all,” she claimed and said finding the content of her email server would be for “the people investigating it to try and figure out.”

She then cut short the questions and left.

Hillary Clinton says she is clueless about all that technical email stuff.

    That quote was missing from the story in the Sun….wonder why……sigh.

  2. nyp says:

    But what about Vincent Foster?

  3. The Sun story was posted Tuesday afternoon but not printed in today’s section in the morning paper. Greenspun is rubbing everyone’s nose in it.

  4. iShrug says:

    Note the orange pantsuit. Ed Henry asked the wrong question. Of course Hillary didn’t personally “wipe” that server. She made sure someone else did.

  5. Athos says:

    This is what you get when you as Harry Greid to do something for you!

  6. Steve says:

    Vince Foster?

    Saving the really good baggage for the general!

  7. Vernon Clayson says:

    There’s been no mention that some of those messages were exchanged with the White House, not necessarily to Obama but to his aides. They knew better than to involve him with the Clintons. That may be one of the reasons for the delaying tactics from the State Department.

  8. She’s not going to be able to “laugh” her way out of this one. Dare I say, if this were Mitt Romney or George W. Bush…it would be front page above the fold on every major newspaper in the country…every day! If there were investigative “bull dog” reporters in the mold of Woodward & Bernstein today…she certainly wouldn’t be cracking jokes. As usual…the Clintons think they can worm their way out of anything, and so far they have. But that may be changing…Drip, drip, drip…

  9. And that Orange (is the new black) Mao pantsuit she’s sporting…may be traded in for a striped one!
