And they tried to expand her musical tastes too!

In fairness to Hillary, the question was so horrible, it reminded me of Hillary. "What is the most meaningful conversation you've had with an African-American?" What the hell kind of question is that? I'm not sure what you can really do with it. I would probably tell the guy he's an idiot. Hillary chooses to take the occasion to talk about how she's got so very many black friends, and name-drop a few of them:

It's typical Hillary pandering, and I only mention it here because you know damn well that if the media asked Trump a question like this and he said something like the bit about the musical tastes, we would get five days of saturation coverage about how insensitive and racist the comment was, followed by stories about how the RNC is planning a campaign intervention and looking for ways to drop him from the ticket.

The truth is I don't care in the slightest how many black friends either of them has, and I sure as hell don't care about their musical tastes. But one can give stupid answers to stupid questions and no one bats an eyelash. The other is erratic and insane, and "stepped in it again" because the media sets traps for him and he can't quite manage to sidestep them all.

I hate this damn election.
