MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell slammed Hillary Clinton for being inaccessible to members of the press who follow her around at campaign stops.
“The candidate I am most often with, Hillary Clinton, will walk right past you on a rope line,” Mitchell said. “You invest hours and hours to go through security. Stand and listen to the set speech, get on a rope line, and you are being jostled by people who want selfies taken. And then she just blows right past and only appears or, you know, asks questions when she actually wants to. Bernie Sanders is a lot more accessible than that.”
Mitchell’s comments bring back memories of Clinton’s 2008 campaign, which was pockmarked with uncivil interactions between the campaign’s press team and reporters covering the campaign.
