Most voters do not trust Hillary Clinton. In fact, some polls show that Donald Trump is seen as a more honest and trustworthy candidate. That’s pretty bad.

According to emails published by WikiLeaks on Wednesday, even Clinton’s own campaign chairman doesn’t find her all that honest and trustworthy.

In a September 2015 email exchange, Center for American Progress president Neera Tanden wrote Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta wondering what Hillary was thinking when she described herself as a “moderate” Democrat. It wasn’t a great look for a candidate struggling to win over liberals voters in the Democratic primary.

Podesta wrote back to say that he had already raised the issue with Hillary, and that he didn’t really buy her response. “She claims she didn’t remember saying it,” wrote Podesta. “Not sure I believe her.”

Tanden replied to express her concern that Hillary “doesn’t seem to know what planet we are all living in at the moment.”
