A Hillary Clinton campaign staffer responded to an interview with a Black Lives Matter activist with one word: “yuck.”
Clinton staffers circulated a radio interview in January with one of the co-founders of Black Lives Matter Alicia Garza. Clinton herself flagged the interview, according to a new batch of hacked emails released by Wikileaks.
In an email, Clinton’s research director Tony Carrk asked his team to find the interview because “HRC said there was a segment with a woman from BLM who said HRC/WJC ruined black lives.”
Another staffer then sent a transcript of an interview on the New Yorker radio hour with Garza, who said Hillary “shunned and lectured” Black Lives Matter during a “tense” meeting with the group in August 2015.
At the end of the interview Garza said she would not vote for Hillary Clinton in the general election.
Sara Solow, a domestic policy adviser to Clinton, responded to the transcript saying, “yuck.”
