Michele Bachmann Condemns Clinton as Candidate With 'Fascist Values'

Former Republican Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is not a fan of Hillary Clinton's recent comments about cutting jobs in the coal industry.

"This is something more than a candidate who's in line with fascist values would put forward," Bachmann told MSNBC's Chris Matthews.

During an interview with MSNBC Thursday, Bachmann was asked, if Donald Trump were to get the Republican nomination, could he possibly drive women to vote for Hillary Clinton come November?

And she was quick to point out this comment Clinton made during a CNN town hall over the weekend in her response.

"I'm the only candidate which has a policy about how to bring economic opportunity using clean renewable energy as the key into coal country. Because we're going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business," Clinton said.

Ten facts you should know about Hillary Clinton:

Clinton's remarks there didn't sit well with many other people, especially lawmakers from coal country. Two days after the town hall, she sent a letter to West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin to "clarify" what she meant.

It read, in part, "I wanted to make the point that ... while coal will be part of the energy mix for years to come ... we have already seen a long-term decline in American coal jobs and a recent wave of bankruptcies as a result of a changing energy market."

Bachmann's MSNBC interview came the same day as Clinton officially nabbed the Missouri Democratic primary over Bernie Sanders.
