Trump Jokes About Clinton's Missing 33,000 Emails: 'That's a Lot of Yoga'

August 10, 2016

Donald Trump said Wednesday he wanted to see Hillary Clinton's 33,000 missing emails from her private server, joking that it was a "lot of yoga," a reference to Clinton's excuse that her deleted messages concerned pedestrian subjects like yoga routines and wedding planning.

Although a new batch of her emails came to light this week revealing more potentially illicit links between the State Department and the Clinton Foundation, Trump said he was more interested in seeing the 33,000 deleted emails.

"Oh I want to see the ones that—what I really would like to see would be the 33,000," he said. "Can you imagine?"

He said at his Virginia rally that Clinton had previously said that those emails mainly had to do with her daughter Chelsea's wedding and yoga classes.

"Remember she said, I think it was for her wedding,’ the wedding of Chelsea, it was for yoga classes," Trump said. "Thirty-three thousand emails."

He scoffed.

"That's a lot of yoga," he said. "That's a lot of yoga."

The New York Times reported Clinton's explanation of the gaps in email traffic when the Federal Bureau of Investigation launched its probe into her server.

"I responded right away and provided all my emails that could possibly be work-related, which totaled roughly 55,000 printed pages, even though I knew that the State Department already had the vast majority of them. We went through a thorough process to identify all of my work-related emails and deliver them to the State Department. At the end, I chose not to keep my private, personal emails -- emails about planning Chelsea's wedding or my mother's funeral arrangements, condolence notes to friends, as well as yoga routines, family vacations, the other things you typically find in inboxes.
