WATCH What Hillary Does When A Guy Walks Up And Confronts Her With 1 Question She Hates–47Gh, b43
After a New Hampshire rally Friday, Hillary Clinton was asked about speeches she made behind closed doors to a group of Goldman Sachs employees in 2014. Politico reported, according to sources in the meetings, Clinton tried to calm any jitters among the financial firm’s leaders by telling them she was not going to crusade against past wrongs by Wall Street financiers.
Nothing was ever released officially. Lee Wang of The Intercept asked Clinton Friday whether she would release transcripts.
Melissa Cronin of Gawker then describes what happens on a video of the encounter.
“Clinton 1) registers the meaning of Fang’s words, 2) realizes their implications, 3) lets loose a steady stream of he-he-he’s and, finally, 4) deftly averts her gaze—all with a warm, unwavering smile pasted across her face,” Cronin wrote.
Bernie Sanders, Clinton’s rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, has made an issue of the $675,000 Goldman Sachs paid Clinton, one piece of the $125 million in speaking fees she and her husband have collected since 2001.
