You want to know why Donald Trump is a thing? This is why Donald Trump is a thing. Listen to what Hillary Clinton said about poor, white voters who are voting Republican instead of Democrat…
Clinton was asked by TVOne’s Roland Martin about her Democratic primary success in states that tend to vote Republican in general elections, and he wondered how she could carry such states once matched up with a Republican rather than a far-left candidate like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.).
Clinton has struggled against Sanders in states that voted for Barack Obama in 2012, losing such contests as Michigan, New Hampshire, Colorado, Minnesota and Maine.
“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, because we’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business, right, Tim?”
She then went on to claim that Democrats “weren’t going to forget those people” and that their old jobs would “be replaced” with other jobs.
Okay. So lots of things here. Least of which is the startling lack of knowledge as to where electricity comes from. A majority of the United States derive the majority of their electricity from coal. Yes, really. Look it, I even did a Google search for you and found this link from the Wall Street Journal, which even has this nifty color-coded map showing where states get the majority of their electricity. You don’t even need to read words. I get it, Mrs. Clinton, reading is hard. Sometimes you just have to blame a guy for a video.
In other words, what makes the world power up? Fossil fuels. See it and weep, you
global warming climate change alarmist pansies. Also, your electric car you think is saving the planet? Yeah, check the map above. Could be that sucker is charged with coal. Translation: if you bought that car to feel the feels about saving the planet, you’re a moron. Sorry you had to hear it from me, but no I’m not.
Back to Mrs. Clinton.
1. People stop listening after you say you’re putting them out of business. Because contrary to what Bernie Sanders might be saying to young people who went to school for too long and spent too much monies, not all people want to suck from the government teet. Some people actually want to, like, provide for themselves. Yeah, it’s still a thing. So telling people you want to vote for you that you’re going to put them on the government dole? LOL at you, but please keep it up.
2. If they do keep listening, they’ve heard all of these promises/lectures before. Obama hates coal, too. Not sure if he’s seen the map above, but let’s assume he has. The “Coal is bad, renewable energy is good,” meme has been sung one too many times. It’s past the “this song is catchy” phase and has entered into the MAKE IT STOP OMG OMG NO MORE KE$HA level.
3. Hillary Clinton is a rotten liar. We can break that statement down a bit more. Hillary is rotten. Hillary is a liar. We’re not even making fun of her closet of pantsuits either. Or the cadence of her speech. Right now we’re attacking her on the crappy substance she’s using to push her agenda. It sucks. Face it, a pet rock would make a more likeable and skilled president than Mrs. Clinton. At least the rock wouldn’t be against coal. Solidarity and all that.
