WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton, most likely gearing up for a 2016 presidential run, is trying to pick up the pieces after her most recent gaffe in a public setting. She’s made public gaffes before, such as saying she’s not “truly well off.”
At an event in Massachusetts, Clinton claimed businesses and corporations do not create jobs. As Hot Air pointed out, Clinton criticized the concept of trickle-down economics (often lauded by conservatives) and botched it completely. She said:
“Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.”
POLITICO reported she tried to clarify her remarks several days later, but the damage was already done; she’s shown how ill-prepared she is to understand basic economics and job creation.
