A coal worker who is now out of a job confronted Hillary Clinton with a picture of his family — and he was met with an icy response.
“The reason you hear those people (protesters) out there saying some of the things that they say is because when you make comments like ‘we’re going to put a lot of coal miners out of jobs,’ this is the kind of people you’re affecting.
“This is my family,” the man said, reaching across the table to put a picture of his family in front of Clinton.
“My hope is in God,” the man said, choking back tears. “That’s my future,” he said, pointing to the picture. “I want my family to know that they have a future in this state.”
Clinton, offering little compassion for the man in emotional pain, claimed her remark, below, was “taken out of context.”
“I’m the only candidate which has a policy about how to bring economic opportunity using clean renewable energy as the key into coal country,” Clinton said March 13. “Because we are going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.”
She now says it was a “misstatement.”
