As we told you earlier, tonight’s Democratic debate is being held in Flint, Michigan and the first topic of the night was understandably on the city’s water crisis. Hillary Clinton, however, one-upped Bernie Sanders by vowing to remove lead from “everywhere” if elected:

No, not that extreme … but still … pretty extreme:

Flint, Michigan is not the only city with a lead problem. Which means, to remove lead from everywhere — including water systems that have lead pipes — will be incredibly expensive.

She’s going to need to follow-up and explain just what she means on this one.


Of course it isn’t.
