Hillary Clinton doesn’t want a fake pseudo-endorsement from a Koch brother. Koch’s comments should be viewed as an attempt to weaken Clinton’s support among Democrats. Clinton was correct. The Koch brothers are the biggest funders of the right’s effort to discredit climate science. The Koch brothers are also behind the movement to make it more difficult for people to vote.
Everyone knows that the Kochs can’t stand Donald Trump, but it will snow in hell before Charles or David Koch supports a Democrat. The Koch brothers will be running hundreds of millions of dollars of negative dark money ads against Hillary Clinton in the fall. Don’t be fooled by what Charles Koch says. Watch what the right-wing political operation that he is funding does.
