Wow. Hillary Clinton Invokes 9-11 Attacks to Defend Her Millions in Wall Street Donations (Video)
Tonight at the Democratic presidential debate in Hillary Clinton was confronted on her millions in Wall Street donations. Moderator John Dickerson alluded to the millions of dollars in paid speeches.
She invoked 9-11.
Slate posted the transcript:
Oh, wait a minute, senator. You know, not only do I have hundreds of thousands of donors, most of them small, and I’m very proud that for the first time a majority of my donors are women, 60%. [Cheers and applause.] So I— I represented New York, and I represented New York on 9/11 when we were attacked. Where were we attacked? We were attacked in downtown Manhattan where Wall Street is. I did spend a whole lot of time and effort helping them rebuild. That was good for New York. It was good for the economy, and it was a way to rebuke the terrorists who had attacked our country.
Democrats were not happy with her cheap trick.
Hillary Clinton mentioning 9/11 in the context of defending the banks is a cheap political trick. That's a Republican move. #DemDebate
