Hillary Clinton appeared flustered Thursday when an attendee at a campaign event in New York state asked her if she would reject campaign donations from fossil fuel companies, responding by accusing rival Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) campaign of spreading “lies.”

“I do not have—I have money from people that work for fossil fuel companies,” Clinton said, waving her finger at the woman who asked the question. “I am so sick, I am so sick of the Sanders campaign lying about me. I’m sick of it.”

Greenpeace posted video of that exchange online.

Sanders had tied Clinton to Wall Street and the fossil fuel industry earlier in the day at a rally in Wisconsin, according to local TV station WGRZ.

“We don’t represent Wall Street. We don’t represent the drug companies or the fossil fuel industry. We don’t want their money,” Sanders said at the rally.

  1. is that called hitting a nerve? :scream:

  2. It’s called having a Democratic candidate being a Republican shill.

    edited: To clarify, I was indicating that Bernie and his supporters keep throwing Republican talking points at Hillary and pretending as if they’re true. I was not calling Hillary Republican lite.

  3. Yeah, I wish Sanders would lay off the conspiratorial ad nauseum Clinton attacks

  4. Yep. Bernie’s attacks on Clinton are rather Republican shill like.

  5. Hit’er again, hit-er again, harder harder. Bernie has infinite ammunition. I’m glad he’s using it. I’m glad Hillary is pissed off about it, but has nowhere to go but empty, sleazy vituperation.
