Hillary Clinton, currently defending herself from environmental critics for accepting money from employees at oil and gas companies, hit then-Sen. Barack Obama for doing the same thing in 2008.
Clinton lost her temper at an event on Thursday when activists from Greenpeace and 350 Action, two environmental organization, asked her to "reject fossil fuel money" and not accept donations from the gas and oil industry. "I'm so sick of the Sanders' campaign lying about me. I'm sick of it," Clinton said.
In response to the confrontation, Nick Merrill, Clinton's spokesman, said the candidate "has not taken a dollar from oil and gas industry PACs or corporations." Clinton's campaign, in fact, has not received any money directly from oil and gas companies, as that would violate election law.

Clinton's 2016 campaign has taken more than $300,000 from people who work for those companies, according to Greenpeace. Clinton's campaign noted on Thursday that Sanders has taken upwards of $50,000 from the same individuals.
“I’m so sick of the Sanders’ campaign lying about me. I’m sick of it,” Clinton said.
Clinton’s response to the question was pure victimization. Clinton claimed the Sanders campaign was lying about her. Typical Clinton — play the victim.
In so doing, she deflected a direct response to the question, because she knew a true answer would put her in with big oil money.
Hillary plays the victim.
That is all she has.
Notice in the confrontation that Hillary dropped the soft, slow, grandmotherly voice she has been using recently.
Instead, she reverted to The Screech voice, again.
