State Dept. slams Fox News ‘credible journalist’ for ‘asinine’ question about Clinton’s health

“Toria, can you expand on why Secretary Clinton can’t testify on Thursday about this?” the Fox News correspondent asked department spokesperson Victoria Nuland, according to a transcript. “It seems that she has not been available to testify on the Benghazi situation on some very key dates, including the Sunday after 9/11 and now this Thursday.”

In an email obtained by The Washington Post and published on Wednesday, Clinton Senior Advisor Philippe Reines took a much snarkier tone with Fishel.

“We owe you an apology,” Reines wrote. “I’m almost embarrassed to even admit this – but somehow your question at today’s Daily Press Briefing was somehow completely mauled and transcribed in the release.”

“I just called them and read them the riot act for putting such misleading, accusatory, and absolutely asinine words in your mouth. Because after what we and her doctors explained over the weekend regarding her health, you couldn’t possibly have been insinuating the ulterior motives that question implies. No way. No credible journalist would do that without any basis whatsoever.”

5. I really have wondered why the President, on getting any of his share of asinine questions, hasn't

stared at the punk 'journalist' who uttered the remark, and just looked around the room saying: "Any questions from a journalist here?"
