It’s now been 260 days since Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton held a press conference.

Today, Hillary Clinton’s only public event is a fundraiser with Cher in Massachusetts. The Clinton Campaign added an “organizing event” in Reno, NV on August 25th to her paltry schedule.

Hillary Clinton continues to dodge open questions in favor of heavily staged and controlled media interviews. Mired in a variety of scandals and with serious questions swirling about her health, the Clinton campaign is doing everything they can to hide Hillary from unscripted questions. Her opponent, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump regularly gives access to the press during open press conferences. Trump is maintaining a blistering campaign schedule filled with rallies, while Clinton rarely appears in public for more than half an hour.

People who would like to include their questions and comments for this daily column regarding Hillary are encouraged to tweet at this reporter @DustinStockton and use the hashtag #HidingHillary. Here are some of the best questions/comments received yesterday.

Poker legend Mike “The Mouth” Matusow @themouthmatusow lived up to his nickname:

Several supporters of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders still have questions as well:

@IdiotDella still wants to see the transcripts of her lucrative Goldman Sachs speeches.

@GodlessNZ asked several pertinent questions including why Bernie isn’t being allowed to campaign for Debbie Wasserman Shultz Democratic primary opponent Tim Canova…

…and why she deleted certain language regarding sexual assault from her webpage.

Another Bernie supporter @OfThePeople brought up the Clinton Foundation with a two-part tweet:

@Clear_Honesty pointed out that it’s not just Hillary who’s hiding, but also her surrogates who focus on attacking Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump instead of answering questions about their candidate.

@Leslie_H20 wants to know if anyone has warned her how physically demanding being the leader of the free world will be.
