Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton made an outrageous comment during a CNN town hall event on Sunday night. Speaking in Ohio about her plans to revitalize coal country, Clinton said, “We’re going to put a lot of coal companies and coal miners out of business.”
That comment was immediately preceded by a promise to invest in the clean-energy economy in those places, and immediately followed by a pledge to “make it clear that we don’t want to forget those people,” Mother Jones reported.
But it’s not hard to guess which comment will end up as a sound bite in attack ads in coal states during the general election.
