Hillary Clinton’s email controversy from 2015 is still garnering attention. What happened exactly? Instead of using official state department e-mail accounts that go through federal government servers, Mrs. Clinton used her family’s private email server for her official email communications during her time as Secretary of State. While you’d expect shocking and controversial tidbits, they just aren’t really that interesting. However, there are some funny (unintentional) jokes and observances in there.
Clinton’s got jokes?!
Well, it is 2016
Huma Abedin: “Can you hang up the fax line, they will call again and try fax”
Clinton: “I thought it was supposed to be off hook to work?”
Abedin: “Yes but hang up one more time. So they can reestablish the line.”
Clinton: “I did.”
Abedin: “Just pick up phone and hang it up. And leave it hung up.”
Clinton: “I’ve done it twice now.”
Jake Sullivan: “I’m being told – and still trying to verify – that as of last week, we’ve succumbed to the Europeans’ preferred term. That there was interagency discussion of this, and that going forward, we will join the rest of the world in calling the P5+1 the E3+3.”
Clinton: “What does it mean? What is the E and who are the three?”
Sullivan: “E is Europe. E3 is UK, France, and Germany. +3 is US, China, Russia So it’s the same 6 as the P5+1, just a different name.”
Clinton: “I already feel safer.”
Sullivan: “And I feel ashamed that I had to subject you to this.”
