President Obama dodged a question about Hillary Clinton's email controversy and her paid speeches to Wall Street on Thursday.

At the end of a press conference in Ise Shima, Japan, on Thursday, Obama told reporters that "as a special bonus, Iím going to take one more question, go ahead.

A reporter than asked Obama about a State Department inspector general report released Wednesday that said Clinton and her aides didn't comply with agency records-keeping policies. "Just yesterday we saw the State Departmentís inspector general put out a report about Secretary Clintonís emails. It basically undermines some of what sheís said about her email practices," the journalist asked.

ďIím wondering if you think that undermines her trustworthiness with the American people and if you agree with Bernie Sanders that she should release the transcripts of her highly paid speeches to Wall Street?Ē he continued.

ďOK, you know what? I take it back. Iím not taking another one," Obama responded to laughter.

1. history with Clintons



With Obama, after signing her name to an agreement saying none of the Democrats would participate in a schedule-jumping primary in Michigan, Hillary Clinton went BACK ON HER WORD. She proves over and over she cannot be trusted, even when she actually signs her own name to a document.

2. All joking aside

Obama himself can't even answer for her..... It is not too late... Contested convention nominate Bernie Sanders before Hillary gets us Trumped.

4. Good job, Obama

A leading question regarding an ongoing FBI investigation. He should duck that flaming POS.

9. Thank you

A president shouldn't comment about an ongoing federal investigation. As head of the party he should remain neutral until the nominee is selected.

11. Bernie is sick of hearing about those damned emails

 

Obama is sick of hearing about those damned emails
HRC is sick of hearing about those damned emails
I, as a Bernie supporter, am sick of hearing about those damned emails
its a non starter, a republican pipe dream, no one cares, no proof of harm, no laws broken. Let the cons waste time with it during the GE.

14. Is this GDP or LBN?

Looks like a full court press of Hillary hate going on.

Bernie lost and will not be the nominee.

Fact.

I wonder who the reporter was who asked that question?
