Hillary Clinton isnt rich. Shes you.
The Clintons, who are so fond of reminding voters that former President Bill Clinton left behind a budget surplus, were not so particular about their personal finances in the late 1990s. If you forgot that little historical detail, Hillary Clinton is happy to remind you that she, too, has struggled and knows what dead broke feels like.
If you — you have no reason to remember, but we came out of the White House not only dead broke but in debt, Clinton told ABCs Diane Sawyer after being confronted with the fact that she makes a ridiculous amount of money on the speaking circuit.
We had no money when we got there and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea’s education, you know, it was not easy, she added.
First of all, we had to pay off all our debts, Clinton continued, which was, you know, he had to make double the money because of obviously taxes and then pay off the debts and get us houses and take care of family members.”
Thats an interesting answer. Sawyers question was not, Youre making an absurd amount of money, why dont you apologize? It was, Youre making an absurd amount of money, why would you ever want to stop just to run for president?
But Clintons defensive response made more sense when Sawyer asked a follow-up question. Do you think Americans will understand five times the median income in this country for one speech? Sawyer asked.
Let me put it this way, Clinton answered. I thought making speeches for money was a much better thing than getting connected with any one group or company, as so many people who leave public life do.

Audacity, thy name is Clinton.
I can’t stand it when speakers keep using “you know,” all the time. One supposes she thinks it’s folksy, somehow.
So we took some very valuable art works which we were forced to return.
LOL! I guess if the president thing doesn't work out, she can always be a standup comedian.
She married audacity.
Now she has become MISTER Clinton. :o)
Her fanbois will believe her, of course.
Oh boo-freaking hoo! I guess all those stolen arts from the WH weren’t enough to keep them in the lifestyle to which they had become accustomed...............
Hey Hillary if this is true you and Bill are the ONLY people to leave the WH broke since 1900. How does that make you so smart?
Then-president Bill Clinton and wife Hillary Rodham Clinton purchased this Dutch Colonial home in New Yorks wealthy Westchester County for $5.95 million in 1999, a year before Hillary became the U.S. Senator for the state of New York. Unlike other presidents, Bill Clinton didnt own any homes during his presidency, until he bought this property, the first of two homes purchased near the end of his second term.
Purchased in 2000, the Clintons paid $2.85 million for this stately house in Washingtons leafy Observatory Circle neighborhood. According to property records, the brick Georgian Colonial is 5,152 square feet and has 4 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms
They were struggling, dead broke, couldn't afford a pot to pee in..... Hillary Clinton, pathological LIAR.
It’s a way of delaying the speaker while the brain is trying to come up with another facet to move the conversation to another area...............
Now what were all those debts they were paying off???
Yep, and she was named after the Mt. Everest climber, Sir Edmund Hillary before he climbed Mt. Everest.
Dead broke except for millions in advances on her book and overseas loans!
In other words, they have a disorganized brain.
Is that one of the reasons why they trashed the White House before leaving?
She is not human..
