Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea, was seen Wednesday traveling from campaign rally to campaign rally via private jet in North Carolina.
This came as a shock to many as it contradicted her rhetoric about “climate change” being an environmental threat that has to be immediately addressed.
In fact, during an event she attended in Asheville, she spoke about the need to fight global warming. Says the Asheville Citizen-Times.
Yet, she reportedly arrived in and later left the town in a private jet.
Dur her short stay in Asheville, Clinton touted her membership to Greenpeace and explained why she felt strongly about climate change.
“It’s one of the many things I didn’t know that I could care more about until I became a parent and found that I could, because I don’t want my children to grow up in a world that looks very different than our world, where the Blue Ridge Mountains that you’re so blessed to live so close to, whole ecosystems may be destroyed,” she said, as reported by radio station WCQS.
“That is not the future that I want for my children, even if they’re never so lucky to come here,” she added.
Some thought Clinton’s speech was tinged with hypocrisy because her actions didn’t match her words.
Writing for the Washington Free Beacon, contributor Cameron Cawthrone complained that she was leaving “carbon footprints while lecturing others about how to travel without leaving [her] own.”
Moreover, the city she flew into Asheville from was only five hours away, she could have just driven.
