Hillary Clinton Laughs At Rep. Martha Roby’s “Home Alone All Night” Question

From Talking Points Memo:

There was one question at the Benghazi hearing that made Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton crack up in laughter Thursday.

Clinton, who was secretary of state at the time of the Benghazi attack, testified Thursday about the incident before the special House committee tasked with investigating it.

After hours of inquiries, a question from Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL) made Clinton erupt with laughter.

“Who else was at your home, were you alone?” Roby asked.

“I was alone, yes,” Clinton replied.

“The whole night?” Roby asked.

“Well, yes, the whole night,” Clinton said, bursting with laughter.

“Well, I don’t know why that’s funny,” Roby said.

Clearly, asking a married woman if she was home alone “all night” is an awkward kind of question.
