Not surprisingly, Hillary Clinton’s senior spokesman was not impressed with Donald Trump’s press conference Tuesday morning at which the presumptive GOP nominee defended his fundraising for veterans’ groups.
EVERYONE STOP. Close your eyes for a moment. Think about the press conference you just watched. Now try to imagine him as President. Thanks.

Jesse Ferguson has a point. It’s almost as difficult to imagine Donald Trump as president as it is to imagine, say, Hillary Clinton holding a press conference. Ask Amy Chozick, who covers Clinton for the New York Times.
This would be an excellent time to contrast it to a Hillary Clinton press conference. https://t.co/3UhHzCGJ4h

@amychozick What press conferences?

If we remember correctly, the press asks about her most recent scandal, and then Clinton gets angry, informs the press that they’re the only people in America who care about such a stupid question, and then leaves.
@amychozick honest ?- when was the last time she held one?

It’s been a while.
Trump holds 2 pressers in 2 business days.
Sanders takes no Qs at event billed as presser.
Clinton hasn't held a formal presser in 6 months.

@amychozick Yeah, we need to get her thoughts on Harambe stat.

Would Clinton have killed the gorilla? Where is CNN on this important issue?
Is she joking? What Hillary press conference? https://t.co/Ux4nW4vbWi

Can Hillary Clinton legally talk to the press, though, when just about everything asked would be the subject of an ongoing criminal investigation? Sorry, make that a “routine security review.”
