Posted on 06/09/2014 6:54:59 AM PDT by Liz
DIANE SAWYER, ABC NEWS: It's been reported you've made $5 million making speeches, the president's made more than $100 million.
HILLARY CLINTON: Well, if you -- you have no reason to remember, but we came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt. 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. Bill has worked really hard .... we had to pay off all our debts which was, you know, we had to make double the money because of obviously taxes....and get us houses and take care of family members.
SAWYER: ...do you think Americans will understand five times the median income for one speech?
CLINTON: ....I thought making speeches was a much better thing than getting connected with any one group or company as so many people who leave public life do.

It was not easy living on $115M? Really? I’d like to speak to your accountant about how you spent that money...
A news clip of her on Megyn has Hilly mentioning "the cancer of inequality" in a sap-happy, chirpy voice, wearing a h-u-g-e phony grin.
Reminded me of the classic Willam Castle horror movie, "Mr Sardonicus," (whose face becomes frozen in a horrifying grin while robbing the coffin of his father's grave).
Hillary wear her perpetual 2016 game face.
The silverware she lifted was worth something.
Hillary Clintoon is not only vile; she’s shameless.
GOD save us from the likes of her.
Why didn’t she go back to trading Cattle futures.
I mean by reading the wall st journal, she parlayed about 5k into 110 k in less than a year.
Both Clintons have very generous retirement incomes and benefits. Far better than anything the typical working American ever thinks of getting.
Incredibly whining from people who have homes in elite areas (Georgetown, Chappaqua).
Then how could she afford to run for the Senate?
Bill & Hill, the new faces of poverty. I’ll get get a box together with some soup cans and pray for them...lol.
Broke? IIRC you absconded with government property when you moved out.
What kept those lunatics from being sued into oblivion for that prison blood scheme after they left office??
If they were broke, how could they buy that house in Chappaquah?
I’m curious how much of that missing $6 billion from the State Dept she got
Look at their "non-profit" called The Clinton Global Initiative. Despite taking in hundreds of millions of dollars a year in "donations", they were 50 million dollars in arrears last year alone.
“We Came Out Of The White House Dead Broke” sounds like an excuse for some possible illegal activity they were involved in after they left the White House.
When you play the stock market like those Clintons, money isn’t really a problem.
Start your own Charity Scam ,it’s the fastest way to get Filthy Rich
“We were so broke we had to loot the Whitehouse when we left just to cover our expenses”
You tell em Hillary.
Gosh, I wish I was broke like that.
They had to make double the money because of obviously taxes???
Anyone else struck by how incoherent this smartest woman in the world is, describing this situation???
The Clintons entered the White House almost broke. In Arkansas, they never owned a home, had a couple of dilapidated cars, Hillary worked as a very junior associate in a Little Rock law firm and Bill was AG and Governor. When they left the White House they were millionaires with book deals, over priced speaking deals and general grifting. If Hillary was so broke how did she manage to buy that million dollar home in Chapaqua, NY? Another Clinton lie.
Broke... So that’s why they stole everything in sight as they lingered around Washington, DC well into the Bush inaugeration....
I remember screaming at the TV that day for those two grifters to get on a plane and leave.
I’m still looking for the Presidential China and Ashtrays on Ebay. Guess they hocked ‘em to someone.
I mentioned elsewhere that her choices in attire made her look like Dr. Evil but that pic makes her look more like Maxi-Me ;’)
Is they why the stole all the dishes?
And they had to “get us houses”. Really????
Yes, Hillary “got us houses”. They have a mansion in New York, and a mansion in Washington, DC. And maybe others.
John McCain was pilloried by some because his wife is wealthy, and he allegedly didn’t know how many houses they owned. Why are those same questions never put to the liberals?
Asuming the next Republican nominee actually tries to win votes of the 47% of the population that has fallen further behind under the dems, hillary just provided some real good material.
These back a$$ country folk amaze me
“Why didnt she go back to trading Cattle futures.”
Why trade cattle futures when your husband controlled the price of crude oil with the Oil for Food Program for 4 years and your good buddies with Mr. Honesty himself oil trader Marc Rich?
Smells like the bull done crapped. Let the grooming and cleansing and daily presentation of Hillary commence.
Good question about the Chappaquah house.
They bought that Chappaquah house in 1999, so that Hillary could claim that as her residence, so she could claim to be a resident of New York, to run for Senate there.
That purchase happened well before Bill made all that money making speeches as an ex-president.
Somehow, somebody helped them buy that house, or get the mortgage, if they really didn’t have any money.
Wish the media would dig into how they acquired that house.
And flat broke? I doubt it. What happened to all her cattle futures profits? And Bill selling all those pardons before leaving office? FLOTUS complaining about the cost of Stanford? I've put one child through a private university and working on getting the second through our state U. On my salary that's a hardship!
“...400 thousand dollars a year...”?
Ha! The INTEREST on that would make a pretty good living for me!
The pension begins immediately upon a Presidents departure from office at noon on Inauguration Day, January 20. The Secretary of the Treasury disburses the monthly pensions.
And this doesn't include annual allowances for office space, mailings, and staff. Clinton has received as much as $1.35 million in 2004. He received $944,000 in 2014.
That's because you had to pay for your husband's legal fees, fines, and settlements.
Depends on what the definition of “dead broke” is.
‘twould be interesting to know how much he got from the PRC.
This woman does not look well, she is bloated and her complexion is jaundice and waxy. Never a good speaker, she is too rehearsed in he conversations and response’s...something is very wrong.
I remember the uproar that occurred when it was discovered that Terry McAuliffe was "loaning" them the money for the down payment. They squashed the deal, and found the money somewhere else. They probably shook down Hillary's mother who got stuck living there with pervert Bill.
And at 5:00 pm every day monkeys fly out my @$$
Is this a joke?
Don’t forget they charged the Secret Service rent for the guest house.
She should just as well have stayed at the new home in New York and made 4 or 5 calls per year in cattle trading. She could have studied a chart or two and learned to trade in other commodities. She would not have had to travel all over making speeches.
