The explanation that former President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch spent about 30 minutes this week making only small talk about his grandchildren and golf seems impossible, Donald Trump said today.
“When I first heard this story, I said, ‘Oh, no, you’re kidding,'” Trump said at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver today.
The story in question involves Bill Clinton’s meeting with Lynch at an airport in Phoenix earlier this week. The meeting has raised questions about Lynch’s objectivity because the Justice Department is heading up the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state.
Lynch has denied discussing the email controversy with Bill Clinton but, attempting to quell the concerns, stressed today that she will follow the recommendations of the FBI and her lawyers on whether to charge Hillary Clinton.
As for Trump, “I love my grandchildren, but if I talk about them for more than nine or 10 seconds, after that, what are you going to say?” he said of his eight grandkids.
“I love golf but after speaking about golf for a couple minutes, it’s tough,” Trump added.
