Clinton said she 'short-circuited' on emails, and Trump jumped all over it


Trump jumped on Clinton's claim that she 'short-circuited'

Hillary Clinton held a press conference on Friday, and she might have given Donald Trump's campaign its favorite attack line.

Clinton, who hasn't held a press conference in months, said she "may have short-circuited" when she said FBI director James Comey called her remarks on her private email servers "truthful."

Naturally, Trump jumped all over that phrase in a New Hampshire rally Saturday night. 

"She's a liar. She is a horrible, horrible human being," he said. 

This was just a continuation of attacks that had already started on Twitter. 

It's not clear how Trump suggested the answer showed signs of brainwashing.

A new attack ad calls Clinton "Robot Hillary" and claims she's "melting down."

Clinton acknowledged in the press conference that she was taking seriously that voters didn't trust her, but pointed to her own record of past political experience as a counterpoint.

 "Just maybe, when I'm actually running for a job, there is a real benefit to those on the other side with trying to stir up as much trouble as possible," she told the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.
