CBS Anchors Laugh At Hillary When She Claims She Is ‘Not In The Pocket Of Anyone’

The anchors of CBS This Morning started chuckling on Monday when Hillary Clinton said during their interview that she was “not in the pocket of anyone.”

“And on the campaign trail, how do you answer that charge that Senator Sanders has made that you’re in the pocket of Wall Street or beholden to their interests?” co-host Norah O’Donnell asked.

“Well, look, anybody who knows me knows I’m not in the pocket of anyone, and anyone who thinks they can influence me certainly doesn’t know me,” Clinton said, while soft laughing was heard in the background from Charlie Rose and at least one other host.

Clinton used a similar line when she was interviewed by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on Jan. 27. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) has ripped Clinton repeatedly for the exorbitant speaking fees she’s received from institutions like Goldman Sachs.

Clinton is the only Democratic candidate who’s gotten money from Wall Street, and the Washington Free Beacon reported on 31 Clinton fundraisers, past and future, involving the finance industry.

Clinton’s long relationship with the financial sector has given Sanders a lot to point out, and she continues to give him new ammunition. Just this week, she was criticized for spending her time raising money at an investment bank rather than spending it talking to voters in Iowa.

Attending fundraisers hosted by finance executives has become standard practice for Clinton, who had already raised $5.9 million from the securities and investment industry leading into the most recent fundraising quarter.

Toward the beginning of the video you can hear them laughing in the background.

If Hillary(or Bill) ever told the truth the anchors would be shocked into silence.
