VIDEO: Watch This Democrat Try to Explain Why It’s Different When Hillary Takes Money From Wall Street

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

Democrats are the party of “do as I say, not as I do.”

That’s why Bill and Hillary Clinton can take over $125 million in speaking fees from Wall Street companies like Goldman Sachs, then turn around and wail against the “one percent,” and it’s not considered hypocrisy in the eyes of progressives. Democrats simply swipe it under the rug and hope nobody notices.

Progressive hypocrisy is not going away anytime soon, but it is fun to watch when the occasional reporter finally calls them out…

The Daily Caller reports:

Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire was unable to defend Hillary Clinton and her husband’s extravagant speaking fees that have totaled $125 million since 2001.

In an interview with “MSNBC Live” Craig Melvin on Friday, the Clinton surrogate claimed that “it doesn’t matter” whether voters support the hundreds of thousands of dollars in speaking fees Hillary received from Goldman Sachs.

When asked if accepting that kind of money for speaking fees was a mistake, Sen. Shaheen was at a complete loss for a response:

“Listen, voters are angry, and I don’t blame them, because they’ve been watching a Washington that has been divisive, that hasn’t worked together,” Shaheen claimed, avoiding Melvin’s question. “And I believe we need a candidate who’s not going to further divide this country, but who’s going to unite it.”

“That’s not my question. Senator, that’s not my question,” Melvin interjected.

“That’s one of the reasons I’m supporting Hillary. Well, your first question was, are voters angry? And I would say yes,” Shaheen continued to argue.

“No, no, I never asked that question. I think that’s well established. The question was, are the speeches, were the speeches a mistake? Did it make sense to accept close to three quarters [of a million dollars],” Melvin asked.

“Listen, they’re done. So it doesn’t matter whether you support that or not. The fact is, that’s in the past, just as Bernie’s socialism, he claims, is in the past,” Shaheen claimed. “So, the question is, what do voters want to see now from the candidates, and who can deliver? And that’s what I believe the difference is between the candidates in this race … on the Democratic side and on the Republican side.”

Whatever happened to accountability? Of course Hillary Clinton’s long and profitable history with Wall Street should be relevant in her candidacy for president.

Democrats don’t like to be held accountable for their words or their actions. They would much rather play the blame game or bury their heads in the sand. President Obama does it, Hillary Clinton does it, and now Senator Shaheen does it too.
