While answering questions at a press conference, Hillary Clinton was asked to name just one conversation she’s had with a black American that has influenced her.
In true Clinton form, she wiggled her way out of the question without ever really giving an answer at all, saying “I can’t really pick one conversation out of 50 years of conversations.”
“Can I tell you that I am blessed to have many—a crew of great friends,” Clinton said. “And I’ve had two chiefs of staff who were my African American women friends, Maggie Williams and Cheryl Mills.”
“I have been blessed to have people by my side in politics, like Minyon Moore who is one of the leaders of my campaign,” Clinton continued. “I’ve had a great group of young people who I have been really motivated by and frankly learned from.”
“So I really have had a lifetime of friendship, going back to my college years when one of my best friends was an African-American student,” Clinton said. “So I can’t compress into one conversation—they’ve supported me. They’ve chastised me. They’ve raised issues with me. They’ve tried to expand my musical tastes.”
“So we’ve had a lot of great times because of our friendships, so I can’t really pick one conversation out of 50 years of conversations,” Clinton concluded.
