Watch: Hillary Blindsided By Tough Questions From NBC- Can Only Repeat Same 3-Word Defense

Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign continues to be plagued with questions regarding her use of a private email server while Secretary of State. When confronted by an NBC news anchor about her email scandal, Hillary Clinton kept repeating the three-word defense: “It was allowed.”

Anchor Savannah Guthrie reminded Clinton “how bad it looks” to the average American.

Guthrie also pressed Clinton regarding her seeming inconsistency regarding who is to blame for the controversy: “I guess my question to you is, which is it? If you’re blaming the Republicans, some might wonder how genuine is that apology?”

Clinton attempted to take responsibility for the issue, while simultaneously blaming Republicans for it becoming such a scandal:

I mean, I’m sorry that I made a choice that has resulted in this kind of situation, and I’ve said I’ve made a mistake. Obviously if I had to do it over again, I wouldn’t. It was allowed and everybody has confirmed that. But it’s also, as we now know very clearly, the way that the Republicans are trying to bring my– as they admit– poll numbers down.

Guthrie then asked: “Do you get how bad it looks?”

Clinton again responded: “It was allowed.”

Clinton’s email scandal has had a dramatic effect on her campaign for President. An NBC/WSJ poll shows her trailing Bernie Sanders by 14 points in New Hampshire, when Joe Biden is included in the equation.

Donald Trump Just Revealed The One Thing That Would Make Him Drop Out

While appearing as a guest on NBC’s Today on Tuesday morning, Trump revealed the one scenario under which he would leave the presidential race.

Host Matt Lauer pointed out to the billionaire candidate that his unrivaled place atop the GOP field seems to have changed with Ben Carson pulling within one point. A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released this week finds Trump at 21 percent support, Carson at 20, and Carly Fiorina and Marco Rubio also gaining ground, both polling at 11 percent.

Trump noted that even in that poll, he is still leading. Furthermore, “I’m leading every poll,” he said. “In Iowa, I’m leading substantially. In New Hampshire, I’m leading substantially. In South Carolina, I’m leading substantially.” 

“This is going to be an ebb and flow, how can I continue to lead by such wide margins?” the candidate asked. 

Lauer followed up, asking: “If the polls change and you are no longer the person everybody is talking about, Donald with all the great things going on in your life in other areas, do you have the stomach to stick this out?”

“I’m a practical person,” Trump responded. “If I see things aren’t going well, like for instance there are people right now in the Republican Party who are not doing well I don’t think it’s going to change for many of them, at some point you have to get out. Right now, I’m leading every poll…I get the biggest crowds by far. I had 20,000 in Dallas I had 35,000 people in Mobile, Alabama, you know so far it’s looking good…So I will go and if I think for some reason it’s not going to work, I’ll go back to my business.”

Watch: Trump Just Called Out NBC Like Only He Could During A Live Interview On NBC

Donald Trump was recently on a phone interview with Today co-anchor Savannah Guthrie when he called out the network for promoting a CNN poll over their own NBC poll. Trump had a significantly higher margin in the NBC poll.

Trump stated: “The only poll you didn’t put up was the NBC poll where I’m way at the top, I’m much more than double.” He added: “I don’t understand why NBC is using a CNN poll, which was also a good poll, I’m leading by a lot.”

Guthrie said: “I should have mentioned the NBC poll by name.”

Trump went on: “You put up the CNN poll, you didn’t put up NBC poll and you’re the ones that are paying for the NBC poll so I don’t get it other than in the NBC poll is a very good poll for Trump.”

The CNN poll had Trump at 24 percent, dropping eight points, and Carly Fiorina at 15 percent, gaining twelve points.

The NBC poll, on the other hand, had Trump at 29 percent, gaining 7 points, and Fiorina at 11 percent.

Nearly a third of Republicans in that poll said they expected Trump to be the nominee.

What do you think? Is this an instance of Trump being unfairly singled out by the media?

Wow: Fox News Is On The Verge Of Doing Something Huge It’s Never Done Before

It’s been a good month for Fox News Channel. The conservative-leaning news channel remained in the top spot for cable prime-time for five straight weeks. If this trend continues, it could mean the longest running top ranking streak for the cable news channel.

Ratings numbers show that 1.86 million viewers watched Fox in prime-time, which happened while other high-profile events were on other channels. ESPN was featuring the U.S. Open, but Fox edged it out at night. Fox came in second to Nickelodeon during the day.

Other cable news networks didn’t fare well during the same time period. CNN, the main competitor to Fox, ranked at 37 and MSNBC took the 24th spot in rankings. Other top cable networks include ESPN, which had 1.77 million viewers on average, the Disney Channel, boasting of 1.53 million viewers, and the USA network with 1.452 million viewers. HGTV also scored with 1.448 million viewers.

The big three network newscasts still had more overall viewers than any of the cable networks. The Nightly News on NBC had 8.3 million viewers while ABC’s World News Tonight had 7.7 million viewers. The CBS Evening News had 6.5 million viewers during the same time period.

Fox lured about 24 million viewers when it hosted the highly publicized first Republican presidential debate in August. It has also garnered attention for the feud between presidential candidate Donald Trump and Fox anchor and debate moderator Megyn Kelly.

Fox’s recent primetime ratings have only been matched once before in its 18 years on the air. The network enjoyed a top prime-time spot from March 17 until April 20 in 2003 when it was covering the Iraq War.

Thank You, Michele Bachmann, For Educating NBC About Carly And Islam

Recently, MSNBC and NBC News highlighted former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann’s tweet pointing to the fact that two weeks after 9/11, Carly Fiorina gave a speech in which she nearly entirely praised Islam. (Her remarks contained numerous errors and omissions of facts. One primarily being that more than half of Muslims worldwide are illiterate, have no personal computer, have no Internet, and have no human rights protections. The GDP of 57 Islamic countries is miniscule.)

While overall a balanced article, the MSNBC/NBC reporter failed to cite basic statistical data consistently released by the FBI. The most targeted victims of hate crimes in America are not Muslims, LGBTQ, Blacks, or Latinos– even combined. The most targeted victims of hate crimes in America are Jews. In fact, some of the most dangerous places for Jewish children/teens in America are public schools and college campuses.
