When Steve Harvey showed Hillary Clinton pictures from her childhood during her appearance on his TV show earlier this year, Clinton feigned surprise and said things like “Oh my goodness!”
Thanks to a new leak from DCLeaks, we’ve now learned the interview was almost entirely scripted by her own campaign in concert with Steve Harvey’s producers.
From the Free Beacon:
Talk show host Steve Harvey provided Hillary Clinton’s campaign with the exact questions he would ask of Clinton during a February interview, according to an internal campaign memo sent a week before the interview and obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
“Steve is known to be a host who goes out of his way to make his guests feel comfortable,” two of Clinton’s top communications aides wrote in a memo to Clinton a week ahead of her interview. “We coordinated closely with the show’s producers on the script and format of the show.”
The memo, sent to Clinton on Feb. 17, 2016, by campaign spokeswoman Karen Finney and communications aide Betsaida Alcantara, was attached to an email posted on the website DCLeaks.com by hackers suspected of acting in concert with the Russian government.
Read the actual memo, canned responses for Harvey’s questions are written down in full.
She gets fake questions from the audience and her campaign prepared canned responses for her to give in return.
