CNN’s Borger: Hillary Looks ‘A Little Entitled’

CNN Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger argued that the small number of questions Hillary Clinton has taken from the press looks “a little entitled” on Monday’s “Wolf”

Senior Washington Correspondent Jeff Zeleny said that Hillary wasn’t just facing criticism from Republicans, “it’s also voters who are beginning to say, ‘isn’t she going to answer our questions here?'”

Gloria Borger added, that the strength of Hillary’s press dodging strategy would depend on how long it lasts, but “obviously there are issues out there that she’s got to address. For example, trade. … There are legitimate questions that I think will people — people want answered and it’s a tough call for them to make because she’s a candidate, so people want to hear more from her.”

Zeleny added that while he doesn’t think Hillary is “afraid” of the press, “She’s really trying to run her second campaign and trying to keep the message focused.  But, so many reporters are saying, ‘why isn’t she [answering] questions?’ This becomes a problem when so many voters start saying it, and does this sort of feed into the idea that she’s being secretive and not being open enough. Voters here in Iowa, Wolf, I can tell you, they have many questions for her.”

Borger concluded with, “You don’t want to get the sense that you’re a candidate who plays by a different set of rules, when you have Republicans out there doing town halls, taking questions from the press, appearing on Sunday shows. You know, then it looks like, a little entitled and voters just don’t like it.”
