Hillary Clinton continues to goosestep over the American people. I don’t understand how anyone, in the media or otherwise, could support this woman.
When she’s not pushing girls out of the way to get on a train, she’s saying incredibly ignorant things about major industries. One in particular was her vow to “put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.”
That’s not the kind of thing you say when you’re running for President.
Environmentalists and activists may not like coal, but it’s still a necessary means of generating energy.
Now it looks like Clinton is trying to back track her words by claiming that’s not what she meant. Sorry, Hillary, you can’t erase the past, no matter how hard you try.
On Monday, an emotional unemployed coal miner by the name of Bo Copley confronted Clinton on her promise, asking how she could claim to be friends of the coal miners while also putting them out of jobs.
“I don’t know how to explain it other than what I said was totally out of context for what I meant because I have been talking about helping coal country for a very long time,” she replied. “It was a misstatement because what I was saying is the way things are going now, they will continue to lose jobs. It didn’t mean that we were going to do it. What I said is that is going to happen unless we take action to help and prevent it.”
Oh, that’s not what you meant? How can we trust anything Clinton says, if she can pull that excuse out anytime she wants? It’s obvious her original quote was a direct threat to a major US industry, no matter how you interpret it.
As she gets closer to the general election, Clinton is desperate to take back the extreme liberal rhetoric of the primaries. Unfortunately for her, the majority of American’s have a longer memory than that.
