WATCH: TMZ Tries To Ask Hillary A Totally Nonsensical Question About Email

A photographer for the gossip website TMZ had two golden opportunities Wednesday to ask Hillary Clinton about the private email account dogging her likely presidential campaign before the former secretary of state finally spoke out on Twitter.

And if it weren’t for some really unfortunate phrasing, it’s possible the photographer could’ve landed TMZ the exclusive. (That’s admittedly a slim possibility.)

The photographer elicited nothing but a friendly wave early Wednesday morning when he asked Clinton whether she’d care to break the news of her official 2016 bid for president to TMZ. So the photographer broached the subject of the emails when he ran into the former secretary of state again in the afternoon.

“Hillary, with the blunder on the emails — was that just a generalization gap or can that be corrected?” he asked.

Needless to say, Clinton strode on by without so much as a wave the second time.
