Hillary Clinton: 'I Am So Sick of the Sanders Campaign Lying About Me'

Hillary Clinton had an angry confrontation with an activist who on Thursday accused her of taking money from the fossil-fuel industry.

Clinton was shaking hands with supporters following a campaign rally at SUNY Purchase in New York when she was confronted by Greenpeace USA activist Eva Resnick-Day.

"Thank you for tackling climate change," Resnick-Day can be heard saying in a video from the interaction. "Will you act on your word to reject fossil-fuel money in the future in your campaign?"

The question clearly annoyed Clinton, who fired back at Resnick-Day, pointing her finger close to the activist's face.

"I have money from people who work for fossil-fuel companies," Clinton said, as Resnick-Day began to speak over her. "I am so sick of the Sanders campaign lying about me. I'm sick of it."

Earlier at the rally, a group of protestors interrupted Clinton's speech by shouting "She wins, we lose" in unison.

"I know the Bernie people came to say that. We're very sorry you're leaving," Clinton said as the group was being escorted out of the rally.

Sherrod Brown

Insiders believe that the senior U.S. Senator from Ohio could help Clinton increase her popularity with working-class voters, a group she has yet to win in a big way so far in primary contests.

Cory Booker

The U.S. Senator from New Jersey is both youthful and charismatic and would add racial diversity to a Clinton ticket.

Tom Perez

The current U.S. Secretary of Labor is considered a sleeper pick by many Democrats because he is not well known outside of D.C., but some believe his strength and popularity among union workers and other progressive groups could be an asset to Clinton's ticket.

Julian Castro

The former mayor of San Antonio and current U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development has been rumored as a possible running mate for Clinton for months, but in May he said in an interview that the Clinton campaign hasn't talked to him about the role.

Amy Klobuchar

Insiders confirmed that Clinton is definitely considering a woman as her vice presidential pick, and as U.S. Senator from Minnesota, Klobuchar has a seat Democrats would likely maintain. She's also been described as "by far" the most popular politician in her state.

Bernie Sanders

The Independent from Vermont has become Hillary Clinton's primary rival for the Democratic nomination, garnering a surprising amount of support. Bringing Sanders onto the ticket could help to unite both sets of supporters who have been split in Democratic primaries.

Martin O'Malley

A former 2016 rival of Hillary Clinton, and former Maryland governor, Martin O’Malley could help bring some executive experience, along with a slight youthful boost to the ticket.

Tom Vilsack

The Secretary of Agriculture since 2009, Tom Vilsack also served as the governor of Iowa from 1999 to 2007. Vilsack could bring some governing experience along with swing state influence.

Evan Bayh 

Evan Bayh could bring a more right leaning brand of politics to the ticket. Bayh previously served as the junior U.S. Senator from Indiana from 1999 to 2011, and also as the 46th Governor of Indiana from 1989 to 1997.  

Joe Biden

While the likelihood of him agreeing to take on the veep job again might be low, Biden's popularity among Democrats would likely boost Clinton's chances.

Bill Clinton

Hillary's husband is technically allowed to serve in the job, and some legal experts even think he'd be able to take office if necessary. Unfortunately for the diehard Clinton supporters, a Clinton-Clinton ticket will probably be a dream that never comes true.
