The Hillary Clinton out of touch train continues to roll on after it left Iowa with an embarrassingly close “victory” over socialist Bernie Sanders.
One of the many, many reasons that Hillary is having trouble on the campaign trail and finds herself in a position where she will likely get demolished by Bernie in New Hampshire is authenticity.
After decades of existing in a bubble, not driving a car since 1996, and raking in millions from specials interests groups it is impossible for her to identify with the average American.
Not only that, when asked about a $150k donation she received from big oil –you know, those guys she claims to be fighting against–she responded in a way that proves she has no idea how to turn off her elitist mindset.
From The Daily Caller:
Video has emerged of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton telling an anti-fossil fuels activist on the campaign trail in Dover, N.H. on Wednesday that the $150,000 she has received in campaign contributions from the oil and gas industry “is not very much” money.
Clinton, who once came under fire for claiming that she was “dead broke” after leaving the White House in 2001, first claimed ignorance about the donations when an activist with the environmental group 350 Action asked her whether she would be willing to “take a stand against any more campaign contributions” from Big Oil. Clinton’s Democratic challenger, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, has pledged not to accept money from the industry.
Yeah, that’s right Hillary.
Let’s see how that goes over with voters.
