NYT pans Clinton's "oppressively intelligent press conference" as "boring and too sane"
NEW YORK -- President Hillary Clinton is getting a battering from the media following a Thursday press conference that journalists are criticizing for being "well-informed and sane."
The New York Times editorial board issued a blistering review of the President's performance on Friday morning, saying Clinton's "dazzling intelligence, profound understanding of the Constitution and masterful command of policy is, frankly, annoying."
"Who does she think she is? Hermione Granger? Tracy Flick? Leslie Knope? Clearly, we here at the New York Times editorial board are all feminists. But sometimes, Clinton's virtuosity, work ethic and morally superior belief that she knows what's best for the country becomes unbearable, even for Coastal liberals like us."
The Washington Post was more measured, praising Clinton for responding to the media's questions for over 70 minutes on Thursday "in complete sentences, with a series of answers that were remarkable for their intellectual coherence and precision. And she never broke to pee."
Meanwhile, Politico just published a list of "Ten reasons Clinton's excellent press conference will backfire on Democrats in 2028."
On NBC, Megyn Kelly said Clinton's A+ performance could backfire.
"No doubt, this is why polls show Clinton with a soaring approval rating among voters," she said. "But this is also why reporters hate her. No one wants to read about Clinton's excellence, professionalism and courage. They want to read about her enthusiasm problem, aneurysms, and female tendency to lie!"
