Bernie Sanders is proud of the over 6 million donors who have contributed to his campaign. And he is not afraid to hit his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, for taking big dollars from big donors. According to Sanders, when you are funded by big money, it is easy for big money to dictate your policies.
But Hillary Clinton has had enough!
A visibly angry Hillary Clinton lashed out at an environmental activist Thursday while accusing the Bernie Sanders campaign of “lying” about donations sent from the fossil fuel industry to her campaign.
“I am so sick, I am so sick of the Sanders campaign lying about me. I’m sick of it,” Clinton told Eva Resnick-Day of Greenpeace, who confronted the Democratic presidential front-runner on the rope-line after a campaign stop in New York. Clinton acknowledged that some of her donors work for fossil fuel companies.
Greenpeace released video of the encounter, which showed Clinton jabbing her finger at the activist. The former New York senator also appeared frustrated earlier in the day when Sanders supporters interrupted her speech, shouting “she wins, we lose” in unison before being escorted out of the event at SUNY Purchase.
Some will say the truth hurts!
