We’ve all noticed something weird about the way Hillary Clinton laughs — and so, apparently, have her closest advisors.

In a year old email exchange revealed by Wikileaks, Clinton strategist Luke Albee wrote campaign chairman John Podesta that  Hillary “sometimes laughs a little too hard at jokes that aren’t that funny”. Podesta, who was Bill Clinton’s chief of staff and is one of Hillary’s closest confidants replied that “Laughing too hard is her authentic weirdness”.


The subject of the email exchange, back in October 2015, was Hillary’s performance at the Benghazi Congressional hearings when she came under hostile examination from South Carolina GOP Congressman Trey Gowdy.

While both Albee and Podesta thought she did well, Albee was put off by Hillary’s oddly timed laughter.

Hard to disagree.
