Hillary Clinton Loses Patience with Greenpeace Activist Over Fossil Fuel Donations
Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton went off on an environmental activist on Thursday, after being asked about the large sums of fossil fuel-linked cash she has received.
At a Clinton rally on the State University of New York at Purchase campus, Eva Resnick-Day, an activist with the environmental justice group Greenpeace, asked Clinton, “Will you act on your word to reject fossil fuel money in the future in your campaign?”
Clinton quickly lost her patience. Her smile promptly morphed into a scowl and she yelled at the environmental activist, “I do not have — I have money from people who work for fossil fuel companies.”
“I am so sick of the Sanders campaign lying about me,” Clinton shouted, pointing angrily at Resnick-Day.
This incident comes mere days after a top official in the Clinton campaign insisted Hillary would not debate fellow presidential candidate Bernie Sanders unless he changes his “tone.”
Environmental justice group Greenpeace uploaded video of Clinton’s irate response to its YouTube channel…
Greenpeace has detailed Clinton’s many connections to the fossil fuel industry, arguing her campaign and the Super PAC supporting her have received more than $4.5 million from those who work in it.
