After nearly a month-long shutout, Hillary Clinton took a few questions from the press on Tuesday — but not before she had some sly words for Fox News reporter Ed Henry.
As Clinton spoke with event attendees in Cedar Falls, Iowa, Henry cut in to ask if she would talk to the press.
"Maybe when I finish talking to the people here, how's that?" the Democratic presidential candidate said.
After Henry followed up, Clinton added with a smile, miming writing herself a note: "I might — I'll have to ponder it, but I will put it on my list for due consideration."

Clinton did face reporters later, where she was asked about the State Department's intention to not release the full 55,000 pages of her emails until January 2016. A federal judge on Tuesday ruled that the State Department must instead roll out batches of emails every two months, not dump them all at once next year.
Clinton said she wants the emails released as soon as possible.
"I want them out as soon as they can get out," she said, while adding that the emails are "not [hers]" — they belong to the State Department.
"As much as they can expedite the process, that's what I'm asking them to do," Clinton said.
