A coal miner confronted Hillary for her promise to put coal miners out of a job thanks to her green initiatives. Watch how she reacts to his emotional question about the future of his job and his family.
The media is claiming Hillary Clinton apologized for saying “we’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business” during a town hall event in March. They are wrong. Mrs. Clinton was confronted Monday by an out-of-work coal worker in West Virginia who took issue with the former Secretary of State’s anti-coal comments. Not only did Mrs. Clinton not apologize for the remark, she also lied about the context and intent behind the remark.
Monday, her day of reckoning arrived when out-of-work West Virginia coal miner Bo Copley confronted her with tears in his eyes. The Daily Caller describes the scene:
“I just want to know how you can say you’re going to put a lot of coal miners out of, out of jobs, and then come in here and tell us how you’re going to be our friend, because those people out there don’t see you as a friend,” Copley told Clinton, referring to dozens of protesters gathered outside of Monday’s round-table session who shouted at the candidate to “Go home!” as she arrived.
Hillary replied in true Clintonian fashion by blaming either the media or the coal miner, himself, for not fully understanding what she really meant and for taking her words out of context.
Nevertheless, her explanation is a complete lie. And the media is allowing her to attempt wriggle out of this awkward gaffe by only playing the one line, “we’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.” Let’s look at exactly what Mrs. Clinton said, in context (as she demands) and let’s look at the entirety of her statement.
