Hillary's latest lie to coal miners

In a bold, gutsy move, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton headed to Kentucky, West Virginia and Ohio, coal country, an area where she had once promised to "put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business."

Fortunately, Ms. Clinton will be traveling with armed Secret Service agents, in spite of her other promise to get rid of all guns in all of America for all time.

The former First Lady, NYS senator and Secretary of State is trying like hell to increase her support in coal country by releasing a $30 billion revitalization plan, and hoping the unemployed and/or worried coal miners have a short memory.

Clinton's plan is to get rid of coal mines and replace them with inefficient, undependable, green energy and technology jobs that go beyond the educational backgrounds of most coal miners, but she wants to use legal action to ensure miners keep their pensions and healthcare if and when their company goes down the toilet if she has her way.

The one thing coal miners can hold onto is the fact that Clinton rarely tells the truth about anything she says. There is thus, a good chance that she say lying when she originally said she would put them out of work. Call it a "misstatement," that's what she likes to call her lies.

Her actual words to CNN were: "We're going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business."

But when she was confronted Monday at a West Virginia campaign stop by Bo Copley, a laid-off coal miner, over that comment, she sang a different lie. 

Copley said, "I just want to know how you can say you're going to put a lot of coal miners out of jobs, and then come in here and tell us how you're going to be our friend, because those people out there don't see you as a friend." 

He even broke into tears during the questioning.

Hillary said it was a "misstatement." She continued the lie by saying she'd been talking about helping out coal country "for a very long time." 

Somehow those conversations must have gotten deleted along with her "personal" email.

The spin went like this: "What I was saying is that the way things are going now, we will continue to lose jobs," she said Monday. "That's what I meant to say, and I think that that seems to be supporting the facts. I didn't mean that we were going to do it, what I said was, that it is going to happen unless we take action to try to and help prevent it."

Judge for yourself.
