Clinton Spends Press Conference Dodging Reporters Questions, Again

Today, Hillary Clinton once again dodged when she was asked for specifics on two important topics: the Keystone Pipeline and how she’s pay for her costly new climate change scheme.

Clinton, who has spent the last two years avoiding Keystone pipeline question, dodged when she was asked whether she supports or opposes construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. However, Clinton, who said the pipeline’s environmental impact would be important tout the process she put in place to review the pipeline, which found that Keystone would not have “significant impacts” on the environment. Does this mean we assume that Clinton supports Keystone? Supporting the pipeline would align Clinton with her donors and consultants.

Later in the press conference, Clinton failed to explain to reporters how she would pay for her energy plan:

Clinton says the “public deserves to know” what her plan will cost and that she is a fan of “arithmetic,” but she won’t provide a single cost number. Looks like Clinton will continue to dodge, duck, dip, dive, and dodge any question that may call for specificity on her policies.
