As if Hillary’s joke about loving Snapchat because “those messages disappear all by themselves” wasn’t bad enough, now she’s answering questions about whether or not she wiped her e-mail server clean with jokes about doing it “with a cloth.”
Hillary, for the love of God, please stop. No one thinks you’re funny.
In fact, polls show that people don’t think the e-mail scandal is as hilarious as Hillary apparently does. In a recent one, a whopping 58 percent said they believe she “knowingly lied” about transmitting classified information in her personal e-mail — and that sounds pretty damn serious to me.
Voters want answers, not jokes, and just flippantly deflecting questions is more insulting than cute.
It’s not like this investigation isn’t warranted. I’m not laughing. I’m angry that she thinks voters are this stupid.

If I were looking for laughs, I’d have surfed Netflix or gone to a comedy show. In fact, I would have done pretty much anything else but watch Hillary trying to tell a joke.
And this one was particularly stupid. I really have no idea what she was thinking. Who knows, maybe she watched Zoolander the night before and saw the part where Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson try to get files out of a computer by smashing it open and thought she could adapt that for a cute little zinger of her own. In any case, it didn’t work. Her delivery was also poor – hasn’t anyone ever told you you’re not supposed to laugh while you’re telling your own jokes? People in the standup comedy community equate it with nervousness.
#related#Come to think of it, she did look kind of nervous at that moment. But it looked more like nerves over whether people were going to laugh than over whether she was actually going to get in any kind of trouble — which is a totally inappropriate attitude for someone who is trying to get people to trust her to lead.
Now, I’m not saying that listening to these jokes was worthless. In fact, hearing them taught me something important: Despite mounting evidence of wrongdoing, Hillary still confidently believes that she’s above any kind of punishment. Unfortunately, for her, however, it’s looking like Americans don’t find this arrogance quite as charming as she does.
