It’s now been 262 days since Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton held a press conference. Her next scheduled public event is in Reno, Nevada on August 25 where she is expected to attack the Alt-Right. As a result #HillarysAltRightSpeech has been trending on Twitter.

Last night Clinton made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live where she fielded “tough” questions like, “how great would it be if your first act was to deport Donald Trump to Mexico?” And, “are you enjoying being a grandparent?” Or this doozy, “Do you think Jeb Bush is going to vote for you?” The appearance lasted for less than 20 minutes.

Yesterday, we reported on “journalism” school professor Jeff Jarvis blaming the media for Hillary’s absence because they would ask “tough” questions. The theme for today was supposed to be the kind of softball questions Jeff Jarvis “journalists” would ask – but Kimmel pretty much covered it.

Here are some of the best questions/comments received yesterday.
