Former First Lady, Hillary Clinton has a net worth of nearly $50 million, and in a recent interview she stated that she is “unlike a lot of people who are truly well off”
Hillary was ridiculed for the absurd statement that she made a few days ago that her family was “dead broke” when they left the White House in 2000. Its pretty safe to say they were not any where close to being in poverty. Since leaving the White House Bill and Hillary Clinton have made well over $100 million, so this is nothing more than a phony scheme for them to attempt to get sympathy from voters.
Lets not forget, Hillary costs a cool six figures if you want to hire her to speak at your event, and in her best wicked witch cackle states she’s not “truly well off”
America’s glaring income inequality is certain to be a central bone of contention in the 2016 presidential election. But with her huge personal wealth, how could Clinton possibly hope to be credible on this issue when people see her as part of the problem, not its solution?
“But they don’t see me as part of the problem,” she protests, “because we pay ordinary income tax, unlike a lot of people who are truly well off, not to name names; and we’ve done it through dint of hard work,” she says, letting off another burst of laughter. If past form is any guide, she must be finding my question painful.
Hillary has not only been targeted by the right, her own party is taking jabs at her. MSNBC’s Chuck Todd said Hillary is perceived as a “politician who perhaps only hangs out with millionaires and donors and feels poor by comparison”. Howard Fineman stated that her “dead broke” comment was “disastrous” and “offensive to even some democrats.
