Hillary Clinton struggles to explain her comment on putting coal miners out of work

May 3, 2016

  Last month Hillary Clinton, apparently channeling Barack Obama from 2008, promised us that her global warming policy would shut down coal plants and put coal miners out of work. But of course if you work in the coal industry you should not be worried because the government will be there to help the people the government hurt in the first place…

  Here is the video in case you missed it:

  Today Hillary Clinton ventured into coal country where she was actually confronted by a coal miner and asked to explain her comment. Well, needles to say, she struggled with her answer. Here is what she had to say:

“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.”

Clinton 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. What I want you to know is I’m going to do everything I can to help, no matter what happens politically.”

“I do feel a little bit sad and sorry that I gave folks the reason, or the excuse, to be so upset with me, because that is not what I intended at all,” she told Copley.

  She actually claimed she took herself out of context and this has to be a first for a politician! But then she tried to blame others for using her own words against her for political reasons.

    Surely the Hillarybeast can convince these out of work coal miners, who voted twice for Chaka in a state that kept the only non-racist KKK bigwig in the US senate for decades, that she who has never created a job for anyone other than Huma will create clean-energy jobs for all who wants to work ala Barry’s millions of shovel-ready jobs. I mean to say a Clinton or any other democrat politician tell a tall tale? Never…

      It worked for Obama so why wouldn’t it work for Hillary…

    It was termed that an unscripted moment happened with the miner. In other words, he went off the reservation. In the clip today she presents as a down at the heels, little makeup, hair adrift, roots showing candidate. Am I the only one who noticed?

      I guess all that experience dealing with men who go off the reservation didn’t help her today! 🙂

      She’s morphed into a coal miner’s daughter whose daddy’s out of work. I can’t wait till she gets to California and becomes a low-rider’s bitch, complete with Spanglish accent.
