Thanks are due to CNN’s Dan Merica for attending today’s taping of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” so that the rest of us don’t have to watch the broadcast to hear Tuesday’s lies on Thursday afternoon.

Probably most anticipated was whether DeGeneres would dare bring up the very serious subject of Clinton’s mishandling of top secret information though the use of a personal email account. She did, and Clinton answered with essentially the same condescending non-apology she gave Andrea Mitchell four days ago: “I am sorry that this has been confusing to people.”

Again, where’s the confusion? She should have used two different email accounts but didn’t, and that was a mistake.

Merica doesn’t say. Since that was cleared up so quickly, Clinton did find the time to answer some other questions and, yes, dance a bit.

Good man. We applaud your excellent taste. Oh, wait: You meant that Amy Schumer just walked out.

Hugs, though. That’s a sure sign a tough interview is seconds away.

Look how quickly a young intern worked her way into a position in the Oval Office under Clinton’s reign as first lady.
