Hillary Clinton unleashed a torrent of attacks against Donald Trump's preparedness to be commander-in-chief Thursday morning, hours after an NBC forum exposed her opponent to criticism on multiple fronts.This press conference was Hillary at her best: tough, funny and extremely knowledgeable. Also, the plane in the background was a great touch. She should do these more often.
"Last night was yet another test and Donald Trump failed yet again. We saw more evidence that he is temperamentally unfit and totally unqualified to be commander in chief. He trash talked American generals," she said in a news conference with reporters announced at the last minute.
Clinton answered questions while standing on the tarmac of Westchester County Airport moments before she and her traveling press corps were set to take off to North Carolina.
And we may have turned a corner: No questions about her damn emails!
This exchange is the highlight as far as I'm concerned:
Clinton on criticism that she was defensive last night and didn't smile enough: "I don't take anything seriously that comes from the RNC."— Sabrina Siddiqui (@SabrinaSiddiqui) September 8, 2016
Zing!Clinton: "Donald Trump talked about his deep admiration of Vladimir Putin. Maybe he did it with a smile -- and the RNC appreciated that."— Philip Rucker (@PhilipRucker) September 8, 2016
