Nancy Pelosi Can’t Defend Hillary Clinton’s Remarks About Environmentalists

On Sunday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi appeared on CNN’s “State of The Union” to discuss the state of the 2016 presidential race. CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Pelosi about a recently released paid speech transcript where Hillary Clinton says environmental activists need to, “get a life.”

From the transcript:

HILLARY CLINTON: They come to my rallies and they yell at me and, you know, all the rest of it. They say, ‘Will you promise never to take any fossil fuels out of the earth ever again?’ No. I won’t promise that. Get a life, you know.

Pelosi repeatedly dodged Tapper’s question, instead taking the opportunity to attack Republicans.
