“Andrea, you’ve covered Clintons from the beginning, you’ve seen it all from the highest highs to lowest lows,” said NBC’s Luke Russert, who was guest hosting “Andrea Mitchell Reports” in her stead. “What do you make of this rollout, the Scooby-Doo van going from New York to Iowa, just stopping at it seems random gas stations along the way?”
“This is their attempt to show her as the average person, relating to average everyday people as did her video, trying to show she can cross the country,” Mitchell responded, referring to Clinton’s 2016 announcement video.
“It’s a deliberate, very well-orchestrated attempt,” she continued. “Everybody in the media are being used in this regard.”
