Hillary Clinton Addresses Questions on her Plane, But Won't Talk About Her Health

Hillary's health was off limits until she collapsed on 9/11. Is it Parkinson's Disease?


October 24, 2016

On her plane coming back from Las Vegas and Thursday night's debate, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton took reporters questions, something she has only very rarely done this year.

"It's been a year and now we've finished our last debate and I'm feeling relieved and very grateful," Clinton said.

"But I just wanted to come back and say hello. Some of you have been on the trail the whole time. No more debates. No more naps," she quipped.

Will you accept the results of the election? asked a reporter. Clinton laughed

You know, it's horrifying what he said on the debate stage. Our country's been around for 240 years, and you know we are a country based on laws," she said. "Um, and we've had hot contested elections going back to the very beginning. But one of our hallmarks has always been, that we accept the outcomes of our elections. We do the best we can to have free and fair elections and somebody wins and somebody loses. And what he said tonight has been part of his (Trump's) effort to blame his campaign and where he stands in this election, on someone else. As I said, whenever he is losing he says, 'the system,' whatever the system is." Clinton said.

"You know, whether it's Trump University, or losing the Wisconsin or Iowa primary, or losing Emmys for goodness sakes, he says the system is rigged against him."

"Mrs. Clinton, what do you do when he says, Nasty Woman, nasty woman, you're a puppet." asked a female reporter.

"I just didn't pay any attention to that," said Clinton. "I was very concerned that even now, after 17 intelligence agencies in our government, both military and civilian, have confirmed that Russia has engaged in cyber attacks against Americans, that he refused to admit that its true, and to condemn it for what it is. Which is a blatant effort to try to interfere in our elections."

A man asked "Will your praise for Goldman Sachs make it harder for you, if you win, to rally the liberal base around your agenda?"

"Not at all," said Clinton. "Bernie Sanders is out there working hard every day to get me elected. I'm looking forward to working hard with everybody in our party."

"And as I said in the closing, I'm reaching out to all Americans. Democrats, Republicans and Independents. I want to summon every American, to use his ambition, talents and energy to really help our country.

After taking a couple questions, she was asked about the Project Veritas videos appearing to show Democratic National Committee operatives bragging about triggering violence at Donald Trump rallies.

"I know nothing about this. I can't deal with every one of his conspiracy theories but I hope you all have something to eat, something to drink on the way back to New York!" she told the reporters.

Three minutes after her conversation with her pool reporters started, Clinton invited them to have food and drink on the plane and abruptly ended it. She has conducted just one press conference in 2016, which even in this election year, is unprecedented.
