I Am Sick Of It!': Clinton Loses Patience With Activist When Questioned About Fossil Fuel Donations

News

"Will you [inaudible] fossil fuel money in the future in your campaign?"

Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton lost her cool Thursday when she was questioned by a Greenpeace activist over donations to her campaign from the fossil fuel industry.

As Clinton was walking the rope line following a rally at the State University of New York, activist Eva Resnick-Day confronted her.

"Will you [inaudible] fossil fuel money in the future in your campaign?" the activist asked.

"I have money from people who have worked for fossil fuel companies," Clinton said.

The former secretary of state then took a shot at 2016 rival Bernie Sanders who has gone after her for donations from Wall Street and the fossil fuel industry.

"I am so sick of the Sanders campaign lying about me. I am sick of it!" she said.

According to Open Secrets, Clinton has received more than $300,000 in donations from the oil and gas sector.
