11. Republicans laugh openly about that

because at the time, coal miners didn't want to hear about training for new jobs. They wanted someone to spew some nonsense about job killing environmental regulations and false promises to bring back their high paying coal jobs. Republicans lied on purpose knowing it would work. They ridiculed training as a negative thing that makes you soft and weak.

Hillary offered them the only viable solution. But it would never be as high-paying or as plentiful as coal used to be back in the day so it was appealing to hear some bloviating jackass promise to bring back the old days even if deep down they must have known it isn't true.
