The last time that Donald Trump held a press conference was July 27, the day before the Democratic convention ended. The next day, Khizr Khan gave his speech challenging Trump's proposal to bar Muslims from entering the United States. The fall-out from that speech lasted a week; in short order, the polls shifted dramatically in favor of Hillary Clinton. Trump slowly made his way back in the polls, swapping out his campaign staff in mid-August. But since then, he's refrained from fielding questions from a cluster of reporters.

This cycle, Trump's 71-day lack of press conferences is far from a record by a presidential nominee. That crown is worn by Clinton, who went more than 270 days without holding one. Were Trump holding regular interviews with national media (besides Sean Hannity), this wouldn't be a big deal at all.

The thing is, though, that Trump's campaign made a big deal out of how long it had been since Clinton held a press conference. A big deal. "Why is the press okay with that?" campaign manager Kellyanne Conway asked in August, shortly before Clinton's drought ended. The campaign ran near-daily updates on how long it had been since Clinton held a presser.

In honor of the period that's elapsed since Trump himself held a press conference, here are 71 times his campaign, his staff and their allies demanded that Clinton do the same.

How'd the American people force Clinton to hold a press conference? By Breitbart unveiling a countdown clock calling her on it, only two short months after we introduced a clock of our own.

Perhaps the American people can rally to the cause once again! What say you, Breitbart?
