In the latest set of emails released today by Wikileaks, there is one email that seems particularly damaging to Hillary Clinton.

It contains the line "I know she has begun to hate everyday Americans," which several conservative news outlets took to mean that Clinton hates Americans. But is that true?

The email that Wikileaks released today contains this section, written by long-time Clinton confidant John Podesta:

I know she has begun to hate everyday Americans, but I think we should use it once the first time she says I'm running for president because you and everyday Americans need a champion. I think if she doesn't say it once, people will notice and say we false started in Iowa.

Immediately, conservative news outlets took it to mean that Hillary Clinton hates everyday American people. For instance, here's what WND had to say:

There long has been evidence of Hillary Clinton's sense of entitlement - the stories of her ordering Secret Service officers to carry her bags, her unabashed demands for hundreds of thousands of dollars for speeches, her insistence on specific travel accommodations and much more.

Now there's evidence of exactly what she thinks of the average American who works hard and pays taxes to support the Washington establishment.

Not much.

"I know she has begun to hate everyday Americans," wrote her campaign manager, John Podesta, in an email.

Infowars went even further and had a big headline on the story, but pulled it down. Titled Wikileaks Bombshell: Hillary Clinton 'Hates Everyday Americans', their article read:

New Wikileaks emails released just moments ago include a shocking admission by Clinton campaign manager John Podesta that Hillary Clinton 'has begun to hate everyday Americans'.

So what is the truth about the assertion that Hillary Clinton "Hates Everyday Americans"?

The fact is, Infowars and other outlets misrepresented the emails. The email train was discussing a speech and whether to use the phrase "everyday Americans" in it. If you look carefully at the train, this is clear.

The entire rest of the email train is discussing a speech that Clinton was supposed to give. The emailers discuss specific wordings of different sections, and then they get to this section.

Look again at the wording: "I know she has begun to hate everyday Americans, but I think we should use it once." Podesta says "I think we should use it," which is definitely not referring to a group of people -- unless Podesta failed Elementary school grammar (he's a lawyer and law professor)...

The "it" refers to the phrase "everyday Americans," which Clinton thought sounded insincere.

The verdict is that although there may be many bombshell emails in the Wikileaks releases, this isn't one of them.
