Hillary Clinton has to Back Down on Anti-Coal Remarks

Hillary Clinton claimed [1] in a March CNN townhall that she’s the best clean energy candidate and was not a fan of coal energy. Oops.

The moment occurred after a man at a roundtable event in West Virginia “called out” Clinton for her earlier remarks on the coal industry, NBC News’ Monica Alba [2] reported.

“What I said was totally out of context from what I meant,” Clinton responded [3]. “It was a misstatement.”

“I made one misstatement, and I apologize for that,” she added [4]. “It was not meant to be taken the way it was taken.”
