The press covering Hillary Clinton's campaign is becoming nothing short of a circus side show.
During her July 4th parade appearance in New Hampshire on Saturday, Hillary Clinton's campaign literally led reporters down the road inside a rope circle.
“We all knew Hillary Clinton was desperate to avoid the media after months of controversy, but employing a moving rope line takes ducking reporters to absurd new heights.
“Clearly the Fourth of July for Hillary Clinton means independence from answering tough questions," Michael Short, a spokesman for the Republican National Committee, said.
“Clinton continues to demonstrate her obvious contempt and disdain for the Granite State’s style of grassroots campaigning.
"The use of a rope line at a New Hampshire parade is a sad joke and insults the traditions of our First-in-the-Nation primary,” New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn said in a statement.
Hillary's campaign defended roping off the reporters.
“While the GOP may want to spin a good yarn on this, let’s not get tied up in knots.
“We wanted to accommodate the press, allow her to greet voters, and allow the press to be right there in the parade with her as opposed to preset locations. And that’s what we did," Nick Merrill, the campaign’s traveling press secretary, said.
