As Twitchy reported, Hillary Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon sprung into action last night following his boss’s disastrous presser at which she answered the question if she’d wiped her personal email server with a desperate grasp at a joke: “What, like with a cloth or something?”

The Clinton machine continues to crank away at damage control today, with Clinton for America communications director Jennifer Palmieri admitting that Clinton “didn’t really think it through.” Fallon was back at work at work too, using a conference call to try to turn attention away from the FBI investigation and back to the old standby excuse that Clinton only received classified information that was sent to her.

Let’s try out this excuse in real life and see how it flies.

P.S. Did Clinton try to wipe the server or not?
