Hillary Clinton’s War On Coal Dominates The Morning National News

The Kentucky and West Virginia primaries are only one week away, and the topic dominating the conversation in these Appalachian states could not be worse for Hillary Clinton. This morning, each of the three network news broadcasts prominently featured the hostile reaction Hillary Clinton received in coal country due to her support for the War on Coal.

The millions of Americans who watched Good Morning America, CBS This Morning, and Today saw an out-of-work West Virginia coal miner brought to tears as he recounted the pain Clinton’s coal comments have caused him and his community.

While Clinton can get on her private jet and fly away from the scores of protesters that have confronted her on her Appalachian campaign swing, the anguish she has caused in these communities will remain, and certainly be remembered come election day.
