    I guess she got tired of seeing Trump in his private jet

    Welcome to Hill Force One.

    Hillary Clinton, who has abstained from the common campaign practice of flying on the same aircraft as her traveling press corps, has landed a new ride, a large jet dubbed Hill Force One, and welcomed reporters on board.

    Beginning today -- with just 64 days left until the election -- the Democratic presidential nominee, who has drawn fire for not holding press conferences is replacing her small, private jet with a significantly larger aircraft that she will not only share with her campaign staff, but with Secret Service staffers as well as reporters too.

    “I am so happy to have all of you with me,” Clinton said Monday morning in greeting the press on its inaugural flight, adding, “I've been just waiting for this moment.” Clinton also added that she would be back later to take more formal questions from reporters.

    The plane is a 14-year-old Boeing 737, made in America and first issued in 2002 forAirBerlin, with Clinton’s logo “Stronger Together” on the side. It's equipped with Wi-Fi and broken up into four cabins: one for Clinton and some aides, one for extra staffers, one for her Secret Service detail and one (with roughly 42 seats) for press.

    I'm sure Bernie would have been flying Southwest.

    I sure hope those engines dont put out any CO2 because that is going to cause the seas to rise and ruin the planet. And we know how much Hilldabeast cares about the plant.

    Actually, it's not really her fault this time.

    Her previous, more fuel efficient jet, just simply didn't have enough room for all of her essential equipment:

    Give her a break. It's a legitimate campaign necessity. Plus they needed one equipped with a full medical suite for her little emergencies.
