This is rich, coming from someone who avoids answering questions like the plague.
During an interview on CNN, Hillary Clinton said reporters need to ask presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump tougher questions.
“I think reporters now have a chance to ask some tougher questions,” she said. “It’s not enough to call in and give somebody a platform. It’s now the time to make the tough decisions, and you got to the ask him, okay, so what exactly would you replace X, Y, and Z with? If you’re going to be against trade agreements how is that going to work?”
“So let’s get to the specifics,” she added. “Being a loose cannon doesn’t in any way protect him, I hope, from being asked the hard questions that he should have been asked during the whole primary process.”
But there’s a catch:
Cooper asks Clinton if she'll become more available to the media like Trump. She pivots to saying Trump should be asked tougher questions

And as CNN’s Dan Merica noted back in March:
For those counting: Hillary Clinton has not held a press conference in 88 days. Yesterday, Cruz gaggled w/ his press corps 4x in 24 hours.

Jim Geraghty also took on Clinton’s statement that Trump is a “loose cannon”:
Indeed, Madam Secretary, he would be the worst kind of cannon fire since… oh, I don't know, Benghazi? https://t.co/jGA8RQP5RR
