Why give answers to the press when you can give chocolates instead? If you’re Hillary Clinton, it seems rather than having to answer questions from the media its easier to fill their mouths with chocolate.
After her speech yesterday accusing Trump supporters of being everything from “racists” to “conspiracy theorists”, Hillary Clinton decided to celebrate with some exotic chocolates rather than take questions from the press without having a prepared script first.
“Mmmmm,” she said, as she tasted some local chocolate. “Oh my gosh. This is really good.”
A member of the press jokingly asks, “Now’s a good time for a question, right?”
Rather than risk a member of the press actually asking her a question, Hillary Clinton replies, “I want you to offer it to all the press, they’re so wonderful…so hard working they all deserve it.”
The reporter who originally asked if it’s a good time for a question overlooked Clinton’s attempts at placating him with some chocolates, and continued to press forward with his actual job by asking, “Why not outright call Donald Trump a racist?’
Instead of responding, Clinton waved towards the chocolates saying, “Everyone try one.” And proceeded to walk away.

I guess when you’re Hillary Clinton you believe the average citizen is so deprived of luxuries that they would gladly jump at the chance to try some chocolates rather than do their jobs.
I’m sure a Clinton staffer made a note, next time the press asks a question without Clinton knowing how to answer, just throw some chocolates at them as a distraction while Hillary makes a hasty retreat.
I assume she didn’t need to answer the question as to why she didn’t call Trump a racist, since she outright called millions of supporters racists during her speech, it implies that they are only supporting him because he is an even bigger racist.
Perhaps next time the press can give Clinton a list of their questions before she dives in to the chocolates, and maybe she’ll actually answer them once her staff have completed their focus group.
