Fiery WATCH: Malkin Takes On Evasive Clinton, 'Wealth-Shaming' Obama
Michelle Malkin stopped by "Fox and Friends" this morning to react to the latest developments surrounding Hillary Clinton and give us some details on her brand new book.
Clinton finally answered a few questions from reporters during a campaign event in Iowa yesterday, declaring that she wants all of her private emails to be released as soon as possible by the State Department.
She also referred to longtime Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal as an "old friend." Blumenthal's correspondence with Clinton during her time as secretary of state was reported this week by The New York Times.
Malkin joked that Clinton "lays it on thicker than a John Deere manure spreader," arguing that the Clintons don't ever answer questions, they "evade them."
And she criticized the Times for taking so long to report on Blumenthal's relationship with Clinton while she worked as secretary of state.
"[The story] has been floating around for months now about Sid 'Vicious' Blumenthal, the hitman, working his magic behind the scenes there," said Malkin.
Malkin also discussed her latest book, Who Built That: Awe-Inspiring Stories of American Entrepreneurs, which is based on the famous "you didn't build that" comment by President Obama during the 2012 campaign.
She described the book as "joyful," explaining that she wants other free-market conservatives to start talking about successful, risk-taking entrepreneurs.
Malkin urged conservatives to highlight "American exceptionalism" not be ashamed of it.
"Part of the book is a manifesto against the wealth-shaming of the progressives and Obama. What was he doing last week? He was calling people who are successful 'society's lottery winners.' This is the guy who tells people, 'at a certain point, you've earned enough money.' No, you're not the decider of our success and happiness. That's the American people. That's our history," she said.
Malkin said Republican candidates need to be able to articulate these issues in a "competent manner" during the presidential campaign.
"How can we not sell freedom? It's the best product on the face of this earth," she said.
