Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joked about “the Chinese” in an email released yesterday by the State Department.
The 2011 email was regarding problems Clinton had with messaging someone. Ironically, she was requesting the official State Dept. email address of an aide so she could stop contacting her via personal email. When Clinton was told she had always had the official address, Hillary said “the Chinese” must be responsible.

Whether she was joking about Chinese people in general, or Chinese hackers, whatever-one would expect far more tact from Clinton as America’s top diplomat. Apparently not.
Emails also reveal Clinton’s fear of Sarah Palin and opposition to LGBT friendly passports, as well as attempts by Russian hackers to access Clinton’s computer by tricking her with a fake parking ticket.
