Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s complete inaccessibility — and the media’s desperate desire to cover her every move — finally came to a head Tuesday, when MSNBC cameras caught a desperate gaggle of reporters chasing down her van as she arrived at an event.
Seriously, watch the video. It’s pathetic.
MSNBC host Thomas Roberts seemed to enjoy giving a live commentary. “That guy in the orange pants is pretty quick. I’m looking at these people — wow! Orange pants, he’s really outnumbered now by all the people racing to the back.”
At least one respected member of the national media called out Clinton and the press alike for the “silliness.”
Everyone looks silly in Iowa right now with this "chase" business. The press corps and the Clinton campaign.

But watching the video… doesn’t it remind you of anything?
