Bill Clinton: I Bought 14 Swiss Watches
White House Dossier ^ | June 26, 2014 | Keith Koffler

Posted on 06/26/2014 6:43:39 AM PDT by don-o

Somebody make it stop. Really, even I can’t take it. It’s like watching the Hindenburg catch fire, over and over again.

The Clintons just keep stepping in it.

OH, THE HUMANITY.

From an appearance at a Denver meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative on Wednesday:

MODERATOR: I don’t know how many you bought, Mr. President. Twenty, 30 of these watches? Whatever it was?

CLINTON: My group did. I bought 14 of them that month.

MODERATOR: Oh, you really did?!

CLINTON: Yeah, and two different rugs. I bought five at Christmas and nine when I was there, and I just give ‘em away and hope that I’ll make you more customers.

MODERATOR: Heh, I had no idea, I thought I was just pulling his leg.

He’s talking about Shinola watches. They aren’t “made” in Detroit they are assembled there from Swiss made parts. They cost from $500 to $1000 each so Willy spent between $7000 and $14,000 for watches. Not bad for someone who was “dead broke” at one time. It’s good to see someone go from a penniless ex-President to a wealthy entrepreneur passing out expensive watches at Christmastime. And nobody can say he doesn’t know $#!^ from Shinola.

Some of you people need to get a clue what political speak is.

This isn’t by mistake.

The Clinton’s are letting their money people know if you elect Hillary and support her and her “Third Way”, aka crony capitalism, aka fascism/Nazism economic policies $100 million will be chump change to you too.

Swiss Watches? Probably got them from a street vendor in Mexico.
Guaranteed to last a week.

Yes, the Clintons are just like the rest of us. I got $14,000 lying around to buy some Swiss watches. Don’t all of you carrry that kind of cash too? The well oiled Clinton political machine is sliding off the tracks in a hurry.

“Bill Clinton: I Bought 14 Swiss Watches”

Why, did he keep losing them? (Yes, this is a Monica joke.)

Why do I imagine creepy ass Bill Clinton buying some 40€
Swatches to “impress” teenage girls just like he did in the 1980s.

Sometimes, I really think that billy jeff doesn’t want hillary to be President. Despite lots of character flaws and occasional gaffes, slick willy is a good politician who doesn’t have the tone deafness that his wife does - he knows how this will be perceived. In the unlikely event that billy jeff and hillary actually spend time in the same residence any time soon, billy jeff better want out for flying lamps - hillary will be mad about this.

Rush mentioned yesterday that ole BJ has a “love nest” at the Clinton Double Wide Presidential Library in Little Rock where he and his cronies entertain supermodels who visit the “Clinton Global Iniative”.

I got a genuine digital Rolex. One of a kind.

Can someone spare me some tissue? The poor Clintons. They are so poor. Spending this kind of money has got to put a dent in their budget. Poor Chelsea only got 600,000 for a few minutes on TV and will probably have to beg for change to afford her new house. Can anyone survive on $200,000 per half hour speech?

Were Bubba an enemy of the state (like most of us), the IRS would hear that comment and start an audit.

Nope just your plain old cheap Rhonda electric movements assembled by domestic Communist in a dead city with an asking price of 10 times what it should actually sell for. Good for them but eventually Bill Clinton is going to have all the watches he needs and nobody else is gonna buy them.
