Hillary Clinton is known for her dishonesty. She says whatever she needs to say or does whatever she needs to do in order to secure fame, wealth, and power. If that means calling a 12-year-old rape victim a liar and laughing about it, so be it. If it means crafting a ‘nuts and sluts‘ campaign to disparage the name of your serial philandering husband’s victims, so be it. Hillary thinks about one person. Hillary.
During a forum on CNN in March, Hillary Clinton, seeming to follow Barack Obama’s lead, said, “We’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.” This statement was made while pushing her “clean energy plan.” Now, Hillary wants to take those words back and claim she was taken out of context after being confronted by an emotional, unemployed coal miner on Tuesday in West Virginia.
Bo Copley is a 39-year old father and a Republican. He is one of many unemployed coal miners, so Hillary’s threat to put coal miners out of business did not sit very well with him. He approached her during her visit to West Virginia to tell her just that and ask how can she now act like she is their friend after saying she will put coal miners out of business.
“How you could say you are going to put a lot of coal miners out of jobs and then come in here and tell us how you’re going to be our friend?” Copley asked. He added, “Those people out there don’t see you as a friend.” At that point, he pointed to all those who were there to protest Clinton.
Hillary, who again would say and do anything to provide cover for herself in her quest for power, responded, “What I said was totally out of context from what I meant because I have been talking about helping coal country for a very long time. What I was saying is that the way things are going now, we will continue to lose jobs. That’s what I meant to say.”
But, that’s not what you said, Hillary, and your words have consequences. She continued with her attempt to backpedal, though her words did not seem to have her desired effect.
Hillary continued, “I can’t take it back, and I certainly can’t get people who, for political reasons or personal reasons, very painful reasons, are upset with me. Whether or not West Virginia supports me, I’m going to support you.”
Sure, Hillary claims she will support Copley, but he is not only a coal miner, he is a registered Republican. Perhaps Hillary needs to be reminded that she has already labeled all Republicans as her greatest enemy.
Was that another “misstatement” Hillary or are you flat out lying to Copley now. Something tells me it’s the latter.
