The Clinton campaign is turning its snark up to 11 in Hillary's feud with the press

It's no secret that Hillary Clinton has a bristly relationship with the press. (Clinton aides roping reporters down a parade route in New Hampshire surely didn't help matters.) But communications director Jennifer Palmieri is taking the campaign's rather obvious disdain for the press to a new level in a highly sarcastic post about what Team Clinton perceives as unfairly negative coverage of Hillary's campaign.

In a Medium post headlined "Hillary Clinton's No Good, (Record-Breaking, Poll-Winning), Very Bad Week," Palmieri begins straightforwardly enough: "If you believe the mood and headlines from some of the press, it's been a pretty rough week for Hillary Clinton." Then comes the snark:

One poll showed so much trouble for Hillary that she only had a higher favorability number than any other candidate it tested.

Even worse, multiple polls released this week show that she leads every candidate running in head-to-head matchups. While it is widely known that the growing Hispanic electorate is critical in deciding the election, new polling shows that Hillary Clinton has a disastrous 68 percent approval rating among Hispanic voters and only leads her closest Republican competition (Bush) by 37 points, 64 percent to 27 percent.

The kicker: "It's true. Hillary is left in the terrible position of having the most resources of any candidate and being voters' top choice to be the next president of the United States."
