Hillary Clinton blames ‘the young people’ after getting mocked for Greenpeace video

You know a presidential candidate is having a tough stretch on the campaign trail when a supporter says, “Every time Hillary opens her mouth, she makes it harder and harder for me to vote for her.”
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is under fire for the second time in a week, most recently for suggesting “the young people… don’t do their own research” on the NBC talk show Meet The Press Sunday.

Host Chuck Todd played a clip of her now-infamous encounter with a Greenpeace activist, in which she was asked about the campaign contributions she has received from the employees of fossil fuel companies.

She insisted that she “cares passionately about climate change,” notwithstanding the millions of dollars her presidential campaign, a related PAC, and the Clinton Foundation have received from ‘Big Polluter’ companies and the employees who work for them.

“I feel sorry sometimes for the young people who, you know, believe this,” she said. “They don’t do their own research. And I’m glad that we now can point to reliable, independent analysis to say, ‘No, it’s just not true.’”
