While many sees Hillary as a better choice to Trump, her track record on animal rights is not spotliess. In a 2008 campaign speech, Fernando Suarez of CBS News reported her to have gone on duck hunting trips in her well off upbringing.
“WAUSAU, WIS. — At a campaign stop this afternoon, Hillary Clinton’s focus was on the economy and health care but some in the crowd had other things on their minds. Clinton was asked to discuss gun control which prompted Clinton to talk about her days holding a rifle in the cold, shallow waters in backwoods Arkansas.
‘I’ve hunted. My father taught me how to hunt. I went duck hunting in Arkansas. I remember standing in that cold water, so cold, at first light. I was with a bunch of my friends, all men. The sun’s up, the ducks are flying and they are playing a trick on me. They said, ‘we’re not going to shoot, you shoot.’ They wanted to embarrass me. The pressure was on. So I shot, and I shot a banded duck and they were surprised as I was,’ Clinton said drawing laughter from the crowd.”
This kind of upbringing along with the lack of actions in comparison to colleagues like Bernie Sands in addressing animal cruelty makes us question whether her promises on animal rights are sincere and effective.
