Hillary Clinton keeps the media on a tight leash — and doesn’t care who knows it.
At a Fourth of July parade in New Hampshire on Saturday, Clinton campaign aides kept reporters and cameramen roped off in a walking cordon — a comfortable distance away from the imperial candidate.
And the lapdogs dutifully followed her through the streets.
It was an embarrassing display for professionals who purport to be journalists — and the Twitterverse mocked them mercilessly. As one user put it, “next week they’ll be cool with nose rings.”

The reporters covering Hillary will accept a rope line, next week they’ll be cool with nose rings.

Hillary was just reusing the same rope from her last campaign that she hung herself with.

In all fairness, that’s not a rope. It’s the zip line Hillary uses to glide right past, not taking any press Q’s… pic.twitter.com/tW46PksCSY
