Hillary Invokes 9/11 To Justify Wall Street Donations; Gets Called Out On Twitter


Saturday on CBS’s Democratic presidential debate, Hillary Clinton used the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack as the reason she received a lot of donations from Wall Street as a senator from New York and was called out a few minutes later by a viewer on Twitter.

When asked why candidates who receive large sums of money from Wall Street should be trusted to regulate it, Clinton said, “You know, not only do I have hundreds of thousands of donors, most of them small, and I’m very proud that for the first time a majority of my donors are women, 60 percent. So I represented New York, and I represented New York on 9/11 when we were attacked. Where were we attacked? We were attacked in downtown Manhattan where Wall Street is. I did spend a whole lot of time and effort helping them rebuild. That was good for New York. It was good for the economy, and it was a way to rebuke the terrorists who had attacked our country. It’s fine for you to say what you’re going to say, but I looked very carefully at your proposal, reinstating Glass-Steagle is a part of what very well could help, but it is nowhere near enough. My proposal is tougher, more effective, and more comprehensive because I go after all of Wall Street, not just the big banks.”

A few minutes later, a Tweet from a viewer was placed on screen and read out loud.

The Tweet read, “I’ve never seen a candidate invoke 9/11 to justify millions of Wall Street donations until now.”
