Hillary Clinton has once again made a fool out of herself. I’m sure by now that last sentence has been used in enough news stories from journalists on both sides of the aisle to no longer hold any shock or surprise. The question now is how did she do it this time?
During a speech at a town hall meeting in Iowa on Wednesday, she claimed to be unaware of ever having received money from the fossil fuels industry. Okay, let’s think about that for a second. Don’t most of the lobbyists who work for her have current or past ties to oil and/or gas companies? The answer to that question would be, yes. So she’s either lying or she’s completely oblivious to the fact that her Foundation has received millions of dollars from the oil industry.
The question came from a man in the audience who was clearly more against her than he was for her. Even if he leans left, the man deserves a high five for making Hillary look stupid . . . even though that’s becoming increasingly easy to do. The question had to do with whether or not she would be joining Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley in signing a pledge to not accept money from the fossil fuel industry.
