Leaked emails show members of Hillary Clinton’s inner circle are apparently concerned that she “doesn't seem to know what planet we are all living in at the moment.”
An email released by WikiLeaks shows Center for American Progress President Neera Tanden emailed Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta because she was concerned that Clinton called herself a "moderate."
Tanden asked, “Why did she call herself a moderate?”
Podesta replied that Clinton “claims she didn’t remember saying it” but that he’s “not sure” if he believes it:
I pushed her on this on Sunday night. She claims she didn't remember saying it. Not sure I believe her. We were speculating, that it may be a Don Baer intervention.
Tanden responded that Clinton calling herself a "moderate" instead of a "progressive" makes her life “more difficult,” and that it “worries me more that she doesn't seem to know what planet we are all living in at the moment”:
I mean it makes my life more difficult after telling every reporter I know she's actually progressive but that is really the smallest of issues. It worries me more that she doesn't seem to know what planet we are all living in at the moment.
