Hillary Clinton has raised the bar on arrogance — even by Clinton standards.
On Tuesday, Fox News’ Ed Henry interrupted as Clinton was fielding questions from her carefully selected audience at an Iowa event and asked the former secretary of state if she will talk to the press.
“I might. I have to ponder it. I will put it on my list for due consideration,” said Clinton, who has famously not answered a single question from the press for 28 days.
Exactly how long does she think this, “I’m too good to answer the peasants’ questions” can last?
This is a woman whose entire campaign is predicated on being dedicated to “everyday Americans,” yet she continues to act like the entitled elitist she really is.
The Twitterverse promptly slammed the snide remark.
.@edhenry asks HRC, mid event, if she will take a ?. HRC: “I might. I have to ponder it. I will put it on my list for due consideration.”

Hillary on answering press questions: “I will put it on my list for due consideration.” She knows she’s running for President, right?

She’s daring the media not to cover her. https://t.co/6mbGbEQFrz

Her team will insist that this “counts” as answering a question, too.

[email protected] Does Hillary think this makes her look good? She came across as a pompous, snarky, impatient ass.
