nydailynews.com ^ | 6/23/14 | Leslie Larson

Posted on 06/23/2014 8:30:18 AM PDT by ColdOne

The daughter of former President Bill Clinton and ex-secretary of state Hillary Clinton explained in a new interview why she left lucrative professions and opted for working with her family’s philanthropic foundation. ‘I was curious if I could care about (money) on some fundamental level, and I couldn’t,’ she said.

It’s easy not to care when you know you will always have it. What an immature statement.

I don’t care about money, I care about the lack of it.

There is an old saying that the only time you miss money is when you don’t have any. Chelsea Clinton has never lacked for money her entire life. She never will.

The libtards will love it, but if true, it shows how fundamentally unserious she is.

Money, which represents the prose of life, and which is hardly spoken of in parlors without an apology, is, in its effects and laws, as beautiful as roses.

That statement is impossible to reconcile with the lifestyle she lives. What she means is she doesn't "care" about earning money but she loves to spend and have it.

Of course, her current status certainly does not anything to do with the fact that she has bombed at every over promoted, over paid sweet heart, make work job she has ever had.

Not to worry, a VERY promising career in politics looms large in her near term future, just as soon as the Clinton's can kick a sitting member of Congress to the curb to make room for her

Said no one that needed money to keep a roof over their heads ever.

Said a very pampered adult child of parents that are worth a combined total of $100 million, after her $3 million dollar wedding and purchase of a $10.5 million dollar apartment. Look for repeats.

True that. “Barf Alert”.

Can’t imagine anyone who would buy this vacuous remark by equally vacuous Chelsea cheeks.

Obviously Hillary is in trouble from these bobble headed mutterings of hers, one after another, leaving the handlers to drag out “cheeks” to do clean up.

Patently obvious damage control. Pathetic.

As I recall she made a statement right after 911 about how she wondered if 911 was caused by the Bush tax cuts.

From the comments:

“Let me see if I’ve got this straight. Mama and Papa, who are broke, spent $3,000,000.00 (three million dollars) on their daughter’s wedding. Chelsea buys a $10,500,000.00 (ten million five hundred thousand dollars) “apartment” in New York City. Chelsea worked part time for NBC earning $600,000.00 (six hundred thousand dollars).....and she could care less about money????!!!!! The lies from Mother Clinton and articles like this only reinforces my voting decisions presently and especially in 2016.”

Try working for a living sometime you spoiled brat. Try breaking a sweat and worrying about how you are going to keep a roof over your head or where your next meal will be coming from. Then maybe you’d care about money.

She doesn’t have a clue about money because all she has to do is flash a credit card to buy her ridiculous looking wardrobe and mommy and daddy will pick up the tab with all the graft money they get from book companies and corporations that pay them hundreds of thousands of dollars just to put people to sleep with their speeches.

Another Clinton Clown another Clinton liar. She cares so little about money that she took 600k for doing nothing. And just how little money will she be not caring about working at mommy and so called daddy’s slush fund, I mean charity?

“It’s easy not to care when you know you will always have it. What an immature statement.”

I know a nice young kid at Vanderbilt Med school.

He really does not care about money and I’ve tried really hard to make him care.

He is spending his summer vacation in Nicaragua caring for the poor there.

Some people are just built differently.

Maybe Chelsea is one of those or maybe not, who knows for sure ?

Monthly mortgage payment:

their monthly mortgage bill will be $52,358 and $57,371 if the couple handed over a 10 per cent downpayment instead.

‘I was curious if I could care about (money) on some fundamental level, and I couldn’t,’ she said.

What she means is that her "caring threshold" starts at about $20 million.

Yeah, that’s it exactly.

Invariably, when someone says they don’t care about money,
there is 0% chance that they’ll ever experience privation.

"The Clinton name likely opened doors for the political heiress"

Ya think? Thanks for that info Capt Obvious....

"I will just always work harder (than anybody else) and hopefully perform better"

My personal favorite line. Honey, I'm guessing you never worked hard a day in your pampered life.

You know she's out of touch by that fact that after uttering the statement that she can't care about money, she doesn't realize just how out of touch it sounds. To her and those she roams with, this statement is not out of touch, but an expression of sympathy for the poor. At least Amy Carter had the decency to not run around running her trap 14 years after her Daddy left office...

Without money socialist Hippies would be wallowing in the dirt where they all belong...

Hippies that discover money and how to make will either eventually turn into the Capitalists they despise but they mostly all turn into Hypocrites.

What extraordinary arrogance. Notice in that recent photo of her wearing those skin-tight leather pants she was wearing res-soled Christian Louboutin shoes. In the neighborhood of $1000. She doesn’t worry about money because her dead broke parents are centimillionaires and she does not have to work.

Your friends actions speak louder than words. Chelsea is spending her summer vacation jet setting between Paris and her swank 10 million dollar Manhatten apartment I'm guessing. There's a difference....

Uh, I'm guessing you are a female and only other females and males who celebrate LGBT month would notice the re-soled shoes. The rest of us guys didn't notice. Trust me on that one.... : )
