‘Are u this naive?’ NYT reporter’s bizarre Hillary defense sparks social media SCORN

With the media forever moving the goal post, it’s little wonder that Hillary Clinton continues to rise above the fray when it comes to her involvement in any number of questionable events.

The latest, and perhaps most obvious example of this comes from CNBC and New York Times reporter John Harwood, who responds to reports that Clinton may have dealt with classified information on her private email account by couching the revelation with the question of whether any harm was done.

Of course, this is not the first time Harwood has ridden to the Democratic presidential contender’s defense, having previously explained her use of a private email account and server as simply “excessive caution.”

Social media users seem to get it that there’s likely a much bigger agenda at play here … like who will be the next occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

In that context, the question, “Are u this naive?” sounds almost hopeful. Surely, The New York Times couldn’t be guilty of having such different standards for Democrats. Right?

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
