David Axelrod said on Wednesday that Hillary Clinton should not “joke” about her emails like she did earlier this week on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

Appearing on CNN’s “New Day,” host Alisyn Camerota said, “David, on to this new cache of 15,000 emails from Hillary Clinton. She was on Jimmy Kimmel the other night talking about it, and said, ‘We’ve released 30,000. What’s a few more?’ You then tweeted this. You said, ‘The “what’s a few more” answer on Kimmel also was a little off-key.’ What should she have said, do you think?” (RELATED: Hillary Clinton Responds To Rumors That She’s Unhealthy)

“Well, I don’t know, but I think she should not joke about this,” Axelrod said. “She’s done this a few times. She’s seemed flippant about it. Obviously there are concerns about how she handled these emails, and all these jokes fall flat, and it makes it seem as if she is not taking the issue seriously. And that only exacerbates her problem. So that seemed like a line she was waiting to deliver, and whomever suggested that line did her a disservice.”
