Hey, did you hear that Hillary
Rodham Clinton plans to eliminate the coal industry and put coal miners about of work?
Of course you did. You read it right here.
As it turns out, though, that’s totally wrong.
Hillary isn’t going to put coal miners out of work, according to Hillary.
You see, it’s usually not a good idea to make the case that you’re qualified to be president of these United States by saying that you’ll eliminate an entire industry that Americans rely on for income.
But Hillary did just that because she has an incurable case of foot-in-mouth disease.
Democrat Joe Manchin, who represents Almost Heaven sometimes called West Virginia sometimes called Coal Country had one of his handlers’ handlers contact Mrs. Bill Clinton and issue a Strongly Worded Warning™ that putting a bunch of people out of work might not be so good for the economy.
Yeah. There’s actually one Democrat out there who understands basic economics. Who knew?
Anyhoo, in response to that and the criticism she took from everybody else with a pulse rate, Lady Pantsuit was forced to issue a retraction.
“I’m writing to clarify what I said recently regarding coal communities at a CNN town hall. Simply put, I was mistaken in my remarks,” she wrote in a letter to Sen. Manchin. “Coal will be part of the energy mix for years to come.”
I anxiously await her next letter in which she tells the eco-freaks that she was mistaken when she told Sen. Manchin that she was mistaken when she said she wants to put coal miners out of work.
