The media rarely gets a chance to speak to Hillary Clinton, so when they’re so fortunate, the average American would think journalists would take full advantage of the opportunity.

Many Americans want to get to the bottom of the “homebrew server” email scandal and FBI investigation. Others want to know Hillary’s role in abandoning four Americans in Benghazi, Libya.

When Clinton graced Boise, Idaho’s Mix 106 with her presence this morning, instead of trying to get serious answers, the hosts had a different agenda.

Their softball questions included:

  • “If you get a laid back night at home, what is it for you: pizza or burgers?”
  • “For your birthday, do you like a gift card or something a little more personalized?”
  • “When you’re watching Charlotte and you get to be grandma for a while, do you follow the rules of mom and dad or do you like to take some of those grandparent liberties?”

The Mix 106 hosts weren’t done. Instead of pressing the Democratic front runner — who has had only one press conference in over 100 days — about anything of substance, she instead was probed over something *everyone* cares about.

“What’s your favorite romantic comedy?” the host asked her.

Clinton responded, “Oh my gosh! You know, there’s so many that I love. I love the ‘Princess Bride’. You know, I’ve seen it like 25 times or something over the course of my life.”

“That’s a good one,” the host said.

  • Jerky McJerk

    Listen to the whole interview. I don’t like Hilary either, but they did ask substantive questions after the initial fluffballs. Which is pretty good for a dippy morning show.

  • mcgdesign

    A better question would be,”Why do you always stiff waiters… don’t you care about the common person?”

  • Margaret Manzi

    So much easier than discussing the national debt, foreign policy, etc.

  • Huskie_Jon

    Maybe they were just trying to see how many times they could get her to say, “You know.” I counted twice in just two lines.

  • TED from Boston

    Media in this country is a joke, you spent $100K in class to ask those ?’s, Are you kidding me.
    Softball bs ?’s being asked, while they (87% to D’s) give $$$ to the Clinton Foundation and the DNC for future access, access for what, to ask Boxers or Briefs? For Steph, Radditz, Matthews to get gooey for the D’s?
    Founders of Columbia and every Journalism school should be turning in their grave if saw today’s editors and producers putting out this garbage.

    • jpaq68 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      I doubt any of the hosts at “Mix 106” have ever heard of the Columbia School of Journalism.

  • LeonTheKungFuJew

    Question: Do you follow the rules or do you take those liberties people get?

    Answer: Liberties. But don’t tell.

    And this person is running for President of the United States?!?!

  • jpaq68 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    This “interview” was taped well in advance so Hillary’s advisors could run it past some additional focus groups and edit it according to the results.

    • Chris King

      questions were planted.

      • jpaq68 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Heavily focus grouped before they were planted, too

  • EBEE

    Folks, this same pandering to Hillary will continue. It is my studied opinion that the DOJ and FBI are both too corrupt and intimidated by this Madame to have her indicted, although justice and reason demand it.
    Which is why the only real hope in this election is to use a giant bulldozer named Donald Trump to clear a path to the White House. While my basic beliefs would prefer to see a Cruz, Rubio, or Kasich, we need in the Republican party someone who will stand up to evil and tell evil off in no uncertain terms whether that evil is gushing from a frumpy old coughing barking bag or a wacked out liberal media. So, it is high time to Dump the Frump and Vote for Trump!

  • Eileen Dover

    Well she is a girl. I bet she’d love hearing that.

  • thebobe

    Knowing Hilly, the primary condition of the interview was probably that no questions of substance would be asked.

  • jpaq68 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Hillary Clinton is used to getting more softballs thrown at her than are thrown in a girls slow pitch tournament.

  • Croaker

    HUGE turnouts for the GOP Primaries!
    PITIFUL turnouts for democrats!
    What has life long Dems fleeing their party for the GOP
    NO NEW IDEAS and the SAME OLD TIRED MANTRAS!
    1. There really is only one Nominee, the fix is in, can you say “SUPER DELEGATES”
    2. They are OLD, WHITE and RACE BAIT.
    3. They are Establishment STATISTs.
    4. They can say BLACK LIVES MATTER but fear saying ALL LIVES MATTER!
    5. They think GLOBULL WARMING is the REAL threat.
    6. They will make it harder for LAW ABIDING CITIZENS to protect themselves.
    7. They want you to forget they have been in charge for the last 8 years.
    8. They want you to forget how screwed up things are after 8 years.
    9. They want to BUY OFF voters with “FREE” STUFF!
    10. Sanders case, he wants to triple down on the already proven failed ideas.
    —- Just look at Europe, want to be like them? Sanders does.

    The point is the dems HAVE NO NEW or FRESH FACES OR IDEAS who could even POSSIBLY RUN! Even obama is a Socialist throw back.

    The democrat platform, agenda, ideology etc… is devoid of any fresh thinking, has become corrupted and stinks of decay.

    People can sense it even if they don’t fully understand it.

  • yilley

    Look at her hands in the frozen opening shot of the video above. Knobby. Arthritic in appearance. Pasty. OLD. She is too old. Has coughing fits repeatedly in front of large audiences. And – giving her the benefit of the doubt – has memory lapses regarding landing on the tarmac in Bosnia, people dying in Libya, what she did and didn’t do on email servers, et al.

  • tulsabubba

    poosie male liberals love rom coms, so this question was relevant to her target voter.

  • sosorryononame

    How do you take down governments that resist your efforts to give industries to your friends?

  • rayg

    Hillary does not need to worry about the first amendment. Free press? Hell, the media has shackled itself when it comes to her and her husband. I know these radio hosts are not really journalists, but their questions are really not much different from those who claim to be.

  • JohnCCalhoun

    How about: Did you know how Sidney Blumenthal got his paws on for ultra-classified NSA reports that he summarized and sent to you via your illegal “private” e-mail server in an unencrypted e-mail?

    • Mike

      The alphabet networks will be all over this 24/7/365….right?

  • Sud1

    They should just kiss her ring and skip the obsequious fawning, it disgusts me.

  • Trump gets asked a million times to denounce Nazis and KKK members he has nothing to do with and Hillary who may be under indictment soon get’s asked whether she wants a gift card “or something more personalized” for her birthday.

    This, folks, is why people don’t trust the media and don’t care when Trump makes fun of them or ignores them or bans them from his events.

  • EverydayInVA

    Maybe they should ask how her buddy Sid Blumenthal got his hands on classified documents to be able to advise Hillary on, when he isn’t even with the Government and has ZERO clearance.

  • Funkmaster5000

    RETARDS

  • Farnsworth

    They were told to toss softballs or end up like Vince Foster

  • mcgregormax

    What’s the big deal? Any other media outlet would’ve done the exact same thing.

    • flowers_for_all_p0liticians

      Politburo gave them orders, the list of questions and they followed it precisely. And these pu$$ies do it without any threat to their life. Just think what they would do if threatened. Comes to think of it, I’ve seen this somewhere before. Where could I’ve seen it? Hmmm…

  • VillageViking

    This is why Idaho is Idaho, and always will be…more farm workers than high school graduates, so, what do you expect?

      Have you ever been to Idaho? You would think it was Nirvana.

    Butcher of Benghazi blackens even the Princess Bride to portray herself has having a heart and humorous nature despite her being the SOS that embraced the Muslim Brotherhood in the WH and allowed an atmosphere that tried to normalize the terrorist organization in every other country but the one they exist to destroy from the inside. So it was easy for the President work with affiliates as if they weren’t threats to national security,negligently even in high the highest ranking, sensitive positions in national security.
    UN article 1618 is UN law she signed on that promised to introduce the blasphemy law into America which even Obama didn’t bow to universally enforcing since he had to be re elected and no democrat will touch the subject even as the left is calling for ending freedom of speech. Muslims lobbying the UN for UN goons to enforce the rule of UN and Islamic law since being a free country we are refusing to enforce laws protecting Muslims from offense,hurt feelings even truth telling from continuing as it is a crime that Muslims are lobbying the UN to be our enforcers since the blasphemy law is international law only Americans defy. Meanwhile many on the left refuse to believe is true since its so hard to imagine its serious criticisms are factual as its sounds insane its mistaken for hyperbole. So at first the left will support the blasphemy law as they don’t see America’s refusal as what is necessary to be the last bastion of hope where no one is subjugated by Islam

    From Huma,to emails and server recklessness,uranium sales to Russia,war monger and gun walking co conspirator,negative 600K or 6 million from the state dept.GONE under her oversight and she has the titanium testes to run for President.
    What more does one need than to watch apolitical 13 hrs, without the background that earned her the name Butcher of Benghazi as she was reckless and unable to delegate efficiently never mind as the allocate funds on security needs for consulates around the world.
    She’s the mastermind who defied Qaddafis offer in turning himself him to avoid war but the guns were already on the ground so you’d think a country that is war torn due to the US expect everyone would be thankful their country is in ruins.
    One might double up on security for any presence in the area. Like her friend Amb Stevens daily declarations send help,under siege but the Democrats say its the Rep. fault since they decreased funding she had from the prior year that was excessive and wasteful. The fact is Hillary couldn’t even handle the responsibly of funding security effectively to consulates she was responsible for but its we Republicans fault even as we attack her for Benghazi …….
    …Geesh managing a tight budget is too much to expect from her to be capable of never mind bear the blame.
    Now its going to bite her and the administration in the ass which Trump better bring to light and pounce.
    The left will go batshit crazy to get the felon the Presidency

  • dbt3481

    LOL, the what passes for intellect in the democrat party is beyond astounding. Maybe next they can ask who makes her Mao suits?

  • albertabound

    Idaho will not support the wicked witch of the east no matter how many stupid questions are asked by local democratic operatives with bylines. MiX 106 may the third ranked radio station, based on listeners in the 25 – 54 age segment in Boise Idaho but it has only a 5.0 share of the market.

  • Stuck_in_Ca

    Hardball questions.

    The idiocracy in action

  • Chris Oviatt

    Hillary clintons husband Bill Clinton is a child molester, he has sex with under age girls along with his pedophile best freind Jeff Epstein. Do we want trash like that family, in the White House.

  • JackSplat

    Good old Hill, the old battle axe is just one girls.

  • Chris Oviatt

    Did they ask her what type of diapers she uses?
