At a campaign rally in upstate New York on Thursday, the Democratic candidate was questioned by a climate activist who wanted to know whether the presidential candidate had accepted donations from the fossil fuel industry — and Clinton went off!
The former Secretary of State busted back at Eva Resnick-Day after the Greenpeace USA-affiliated activist openly questioned Clinton's financial backers, as seen in the video (above)!!!
Hillary's response is hard to hear with the music in the background, but she immediately drops her usual cool on the questioner and has nothing nice to say about Bernie Sanders' campaign apparently lying about her!
Here are her short remarks (below):
"I do not have, I have money from people who work for fossil fuel companies. I'm so sick, I'm so sick of the Sanders campaign lying about me. I'm sick of it."
While Sanders' spokespeople have asserted that Clinton has "relied heavily" on money from the oil and gas industry, while Greenpeace has alleged that Clinton has received more than $300,000 from those tied to the industry.
Clinton's spokesman Nick Merrill was pointed in busting back at the accusation:
"[Clinton] has not taken a dollar from oil and gas industry PACs or corporations. The simple fact is that the Sanders campaign is misleading voters with their attacks."
Merrill even took it further, alleging that based on Greenpeace's own reporting metrics, Sanders is the one taking oil and gas money (below):
"[Sanders] has taken more than $50,000 on this campaign from individuals working for oil and gas companies. Assuming they don't believe their own candidate is bought by the fossil fuel industry, they should stop the false attacks and do what they've claimed the campaign is about: debating the issues."
Let's save the in-fighting and drama for the joke that is the Republican Party, shall we??
