While defending her email controversy Monday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton let slip one sentence too many — she said voters should hold her accountable. That statement sent people on social media howling with laughter.
During an interview on CNN’s “New Day,” co-host Alisyn Camerota asked Clinton how she can convince the Iowa voters to disregard the FBI’s continuing criminal investigation of her email scandal.
“I’m laying out the plans that I have, I’m asking people to look at them,” Clinton said, before launching into the punch line.
“And I’m asking people to hold me accountable, because I want to get back to working together, to try to unite this country.”
Here’s the clip.
The line had people laughing and social media humming.
