Former president Bill Clinton again belittled the “coal people” who oppose Hillary Clinton for president — even though, he says, they voted for him in the 1990s.
“We all know how her opponent’s done real well down in West Virginia and eastern Kentucky,” Clinton said during a rally in Pennsylvania. “Because the coal people don’t like any of us anymore.”
