Hillary Clinton last held a press conference where she took questions on December 4th, 2015. Yes, you read that right. December 4th of the year 2015. It is currently September of 2016. It has been over nine months since she held a press conference. Babies have been conceived and born since that woman, who is running for president, last held a press conference.
