If book tours are supposed to be promotional, someone should tell Hillary Clinton shes doing it wrong.
The former First Lady stuck her foot in her mouth once again on the topic of her massive wealth in an interview with The Guardian, published Saturday.
When asked how if she decides to run for president in 2016 she expects to have credibility among voters on the topic of inequality in the U.S. if she herself is part of the problem, Clinton drew a line between her own massive wealth and that of other wealthy people.
But they dont see me as part of the problem, she said, because we pay ordinary income tax, unlike a lot of people who are truly well off, not to name names; and weve done it through dint of hard work.
The couple have generated an estimated fortune of between $100 million and $200 million since they left the White House in 2001.
Most of that has come from a lucrative speech-making career at which Hillary earns an estimated $200,000 per gig. According to Business Insider, Bill has brought in $100 million on his own from giving speeches.
While the couple may pay the highest marginal tax rate on their normal income, they reportedly still uses loopholes designed for the uber wealthy.
Bloomberg News reported last week that the power couple created residence trusts in 2010 in order to lower the estate taxes that will be paid upon their deaths.

She can say anything to applause from the American sheeple.
You guys have GOT to start adding, ‘piaps’ to EVERY Hillary! thread. Pig In A Pant Suit!
Do it! I ain’t got time to be everywhere - I’m only one woman, LOL!
"Hillary Has a Bad Heart"
Man some of the Freepers have nailed what they thought was wrong with her ( Thyroid for one )....
Unlike Bill, she’s isn’t sharp on her feet. Her presidential aspirations are imploding and I think we’ll see more of Governor Cuomo, Uncle Joe, and Senator Pocohontas plus other potential candidates getting more time on the airwaves.
Are Hil and Bill still claiming that they're married? Do they ever spend time together at the same address?
Amazon #89 this afternoon and #50 now.
200 million and she had a government job. Makes you wonder WTF is wrong with America
Maybe it's a promotion for Ted Cruz? LOL
(I have a secret identity with which I drive them nuts, but that's another story.)
Anyway, they are ripping her up.
All those whining socialist progressives are pissed that she is bragging about her money.
She may have jumped the shark with them.
Hard to say, but I put my two cents worth in on the subject and was heartily supported by a few of the most vocal liberal idiots there, so I can tell they're pissed at her.
Won't stop them for voting for her, though.
They think they "owe" it to her.
Was surprised by the number of comments which were against the IRS...some even saying the latest news looks like cover up.
Yeah, and isn't it ironic how they raise hell about how tax money should be ripped out of the hands of every one but themselves, yet they see the IRS as the enemy in this case?
What's that old saw about your own ox being gored?
Liberal socialists are the stupidest people on earth.
This freak hillary is an oaf...albeit, a rich oaf.
Agree. The term “PIAPS” has faded into history. Many haven’t knowledge of what it means.
Hillary Clinton=”PIG IN A PANT SUIT”, OR “PIAPS”.
Need to restore much of the Clinton’s notoriety as much of it has faded. Hard to believe so many years have gone by that it could happen.
“Hillary Has a Bad Heart”
Assuming she previously had a healthy heart she, nonetheless, had a Bad Heart! And always will even if doctors do a heart transplant.
Thanks for that report. It was fascinating.
“Won’t stop them for voting for her, though.”
It won’t stop them from voting for her in the general. It might well stop them from voting for her in the primary. A lot depends on the lineup. Too soon to say who else will be in it, but it wouldn’t take much to pull votes away from Hillary.
I’ll bet Webb Hubbell is hoping his daughter shares her inheritance with him.
