A frustrated Hillary Clinton forcefully said she was “so sick” of Bernie Sanders’ campaign alleging she accepts donations from the fossil fuel industry.
Following a campaign event in New York, the former secretary of state was approached by an environmental activist who pressed her about rejecting such contributions.
“I do not have — I have money from people who work for fossil fuel companies. I am so sick — I am so sick of the Sanders campaign lying about me,” an agitated Clinton said while angrily pointing her figure at the activist. “I’m sick of it.”
Thursday’s outburst wasn’t the first time Clinton has been accused of accepting money from the fossil fuel industry. After a campaign event late last year in Iowa, Steve Patterson, a leader of a local climate change group there, asked Clinton if she would join Sanders and Martin O’Malley and commit to rejecting money from the fossil fuel industry.
Clinton said she was unsure she had ever accepted money from the industry, noting that she isn’t “exactly one of their favorites.” But Patterson insisted she had.
