Bill Clinton Confronted Over Hillary Promise to Kill Coal Jobs

Bill Clinton Confronted Over Hillary Promise to Kill Coal Jobs

“When’s she going to lay us all off?”

Bill Clinton was campaigning for his wife in West Virginia on Sunday when he was confronted by members of the audience who were clearly angry about Hillary’s promise to put coal miners out of business.

Coal is pretty important in West Virginia.

The Washington Free Beacon reported:

Hostile Protesters Confront Bill Clinton in West Virginia

Bill Clinton was repeatedly interrupted by protesters during a rally for Hillary Clinton in Logan, West Virginia Sunday before the state’s primary on May 10.

The group booed the former president and confronted him about Hillary Clinton’s promise to destroy coal jobs, a long-standing staple of West Virginia’s economy.

During the rally, Clinton recounted that he had asked his wife to send him to “any place in America that feels left out and left behind.” The protesters then began shouting at the former president, to which he reacted with disdain.

“This is where they start screaming because they don’t want to hear this,” Clinton said with his hand raised. The crowd applauded and stood up to face the protesters, who continued booing and were ushered out.

“The difference between us and them is that we listen to them,” Clinton said.

Prior to Clinton’s appearance in Logan, city officials emailed Sen. Joe Manchin (D., W. Va.) attempting to prevent his visit, according to WVNS-TV.

“Bill and Hillary Clinton are simply not welcome in our town,” their email stated. “Mrs. Clinton’s anti-coal messages are the last thing our suffering town needs at this point. The policies that have been championed by people like Mrs. Clinton have all but devastated our fair town, and honestly, enough is enough.”

This video has some unintelligible heckling from the crowd:

At the same rally, Clinton was confronted about his wife’s March pledge to “put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.”

“When’s she going to lay us all off … and wipe us all out?” the protester said, interrupting Clinton’s remarks.

Clinton, hard of hearing, asked Manchin what the man said as the room filled with angry murmurs.

“He’s getting laid off and wiped out, what we gonna do about that,” Manchin said.

“Well, that’s good, that’s a fair question,” Clinton said.

Watch:

These folks are raising a legitimate issue and have genuine cause for concern.

Obama’s presidency has been awful for the coal industry and Hillary has made it clear that she wants to finish what he started.

Obama, Carter, Clinton, Johnson and I’m still an optimist. Must be the meds.

…Clinton recounted that he had asked his wife to send him to “any place in America that feels left out and left behind.”

So, anywhere but Washington, D.C.?

“Hillary is a Woman” doesn’t seem to quell the miner’s angst about his life’s work being discarded at the whim of card-carrying identity politicians. Huh.

And Bill’s already played the “take advantage of women card” in Trumpian misogynistic fashion. Surreal.

As much as I detest bill clinton, I respect his ability to handle a hostile crowd. As in the past, he has a knack for telling his audience what they want to hear. hillary on the other hand, has an ear made of lead! I wonder why no one in the msm has looked at hillary’s platform and tried to figure out who will be the beneficiaries of it. It won’t be the coal industry, the gun industry, the oil industry, the military, the Border Patrol, the fast food industry or many more companies and industries. That leaves the deadbeats and the socialist loons who will benefit. How about it willie?

As soon as the environmental lobby can shift the mining operations to China or the anti-native factions can replace Americans with a docile alien population.

I wonder what came first, Bill or Hillary.

Poor old Willy J has been to the political mountain top and now finds himself shoveling shit for his grossly incompetent business partner yet again. He really ought to consider absconding with his millions to a warm island somewhere that has no extradition agreement with the U.S. and just leaving the old hag to her self-induced misfortunes. He can’t fix what ails Hillary.

The environmentalists want us all out of our jobs.

Now if Hillary was there in her best Southern voice , she would have belted out.

” I’m proud to be a coal miners daughter ”

”””””””””””””””””””””””
”””””””””””””””””””””””’

We were poor but we had fun”
That’s one thing Daddy made sure of “

thats NOT what he said manchin.
nice side step…

They used to send Joe Biden for these kind of things because of his “everyman” demeanor. Then he’d say something stupid and we’d all laugh. Good times. Big Dog just gets irritated since he’s so used to constant adulation.

Clinton had a republican congress to thank for the economic record of his administration, but they could not protect him from foreign policy blunders such as The Rwandan slaughter, Somalia with blackhawk down or letting Bin Laden escape. Hillary continued the list of failures as SOS throughout the middle east with Benghazi in the starring role.
