Hillary Clinton jokes that all blacks 'look alike' after interviewer stumbles

The overall topic of this part of the discussion was the question of whether Democrats were becoming the victim of too much political correctness.

Conservative commentators are outraged that former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton made a racist joke, saying African-Americans "all look alike" while correcting her interviewer who mixed up two Democrat politicians.

When asked by tech magazine Recode's Kara Swisher at a taping Friday of the Recode Decode podcast whether she wanted to run for president again, Clinton said, "No, no".

Swisher: Can I just say, you've been reading Trump's tweets beautifully.

Dana Perino said Clinton's comments show that she wants to be in the Oval Office, but does not want to go through the process of getting there. We have confused our friends and our enemies.

How in the heck do the Dodgers and Red Sox follow that?
Muncy drew a leadoff walk and tagged up when Nunez tumbled into the third base stands after catching Bellinger's pop foul. The Dodgers beat the Red Sox 3-2 in 18 innings , and it didn't end until 2:30 a.m.in Kansas City.

"So the work would be work that I feel very well prepared for having been at the Senate for eight years, having been a diplomat in the State department, and it's just going to be a lot of heavy lifting", she said. She replied that she wasn't going to think about it until after the midterms.

SWISHER: So are you going to be doing any of that lifting?

"Look, I am a great admirer of Hillary but I don't think that would be a good idea". Michael Avenatti, who became a prominent figure in the media as the lawyer for adult film actress Stormy Daniels, has repeatedly said he is interested in running.

The Washington Examiner spoke to several top Democrats, and asked whether they believe Clinton will be back for round three. "She had 65 million people vote for her [in 2016]", giving her plenty of time and a foundation of support other candidates - particularly the current front-runner for the nomination, Joe Biden - can't point to. Cory Booker and former Attorney General Eric Holder.

"The fact that this man has been apprehended and there is apparently a very credible, strong case against him speaks volumes about how professional and focused our law enforcement happens to be", Clinton said. And why not - the racially loaded quip was unscripted and seemed far more genuine than Clinton's previous attempts at humor, from reacting to the murder of Libya's ruler with "We came, we saw, he died!" in 2011 to the cringe-worthy "How about Pokemon Go-to-the-polls?" during the 2016 campaign. "That's a big group to try and sort itself out".
