Pro-Clinton operative thinks her campaign was too easy on media

Hillary Clinton's campaign team, which literally wrangled reporters during an event in July 2015, should have treated the press more like animals, according to one of her fiercest supporters and political operatives.

For David Brock, Democrats would do well to take a page from President-elect Donald Trump's book.

"Look, this is a lesson learned," Brock said in an interview with Politico's Glenn Thrush. "Donald Trump intimidated the press and bullied the press. I'm not saying you have to intimidate and bully, but you have to be tough. The press are animals and they need to be treated that way."

His remarks are odd for a few reasons.
