Hot on the campaign trail and with the Presidential race nearing the home stretch, former President Bill Clinton stopped off in Homewood, Pennsylvania at the Greater Pittsburg Coliseum in order to stump for his wife, Hillary, who is the Democrat Party ticket for President of the United States.
During his remarks, according to The Daily Caller, Clinton decided to scold the coal people of West Virginia (WV) and Kentucky (KY) for supporting Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump.
We all know how [Hillary’s] opponent has done well down in West Virginia and eastern Kentucky, the former president said. The coal people don’t like any of us [Democrats] anymore.
Clinton also signaled that when both states voted for him and he won, they did well. That is tantamount to a threat that if Hillary wins, and Kentucky and West Virginia vote for Donald Trump, their needs will be put on the back burner. In short, Hillary will play politics with the needs of states that support her and those that don’t. You can watch a video of Bill Clinton’s condescending remarks and threat below.
In light of environmentalist’s and President Obama’s war on coal, it is small wonder that both states have gone Republican. That also includes Hillary’s blunt statement that she would shut down coal mines in order to make way for her so-called clean energy plan.
Hillary Clinton is an elitist on the side of environmentalist groups who seek to eradicate, not just coal mining, but the fossil fuel industry in general because burning fuels like oil and gas allegedly contribute largely to climate change. Like I have said before, it is a lot easier to oppose energy production and productivity when you have a lot of money and think you can tell other people how to live. Besides, what does the lives of people trying to make a living anyway? In the meantime, send the Clintons and environmentalists packing and vote for Donald Trump for President.
