|John Podesta Calls Clinton Foundation Critics, 'Cherry-pickers'|

John Podesta, a Clinton Foundation consultant, says that those who criticize Hillary Clinton are the same as the cherry picker labor force. Could this be a derogatory attack against the dignity of cherry pickers?
According to the Concord Monitor, "Hillary Clinton dismissed swirling questions about her family foundation yesterday as little more than political attacks from Republicans eager to gain an early advantage in the 2016 presidential contest. Clinton, campaigning for the Democratic nomination in the liberal bastion of Keene, pushed back against accusations that foreign governments that made donations to the Clintons’ charity received preferential treatment from the State Department while she served in the Obama administration."
Podesta is quoted describing Peter Schwietzer, author of 'Clinton Cash,' a book critizing the Clinton Foundation, as saying that, "He’s cherry picked information that’s been disclosed and woven a bunch of conspiracy theories about it.”
As reported by the Concord Monitor, "The foundation has come under scrutiny for accepting foreign contributions, including from Middle Eastern nations that deny equal rights for women. Some also are on the front lines in the fight against terrorism. Last week, the foundation revised its policy to permit donations from six U.S. allies in Europe, Australia and North America but to bar giving from other nations. The charity supports public health, climate change and anti-poverty programs."
Hillary Clinton has pulled her 'Victim Card' when explaining her close ties with dictatorial governments that donate to the Clinton Foundation.
