Poor Clintons! They were “broke” when they got to the White House and were “broke” when they left, according to Hillary anyway. In a recent interview with ABC, Hillary stated, “We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea’s education — it was not easy.”
Of course Hillary is carefully preparing her talking points in anticipation of a possible presidential run in 2016. We already got a take on her strategy to answer the tough questions surrounding Benghazi when she blamed the incident on a video in a chapter in her new book. Now she must prep her supporters on how to answer the tough questions regarding the mere $5 million she has made in speaking tours since leaving the State Department. It’s funny that we haven’t heard a peep from the Left on Hillary’s speaking fees. They were probably a little busy going after Sarah Palin and her speaking fees.
Regardless, it’s time for America to get ready for Hillary. Her claim that she was broke when she left the White House not only answers the questions surrounding the millions she made from her tours, but it shows her desperation to survive, her struggle that she had to endure, her compassion and understanding of the same struggles that the American people are facing today. Except that most of America’s families aren’t gifted with an $8 million advance on a book deal to help them make it through their struggles. I’m not sure why Hillary forgot to mention that part. I don’t want to bring up the “brain,” but why was that part left out?
According to an article in the New York Times, December 2000, it was reported that Clinton sold her memoir, Living History, to Simon & Schuster for $8 million. This was after an apparent week-long bidding war. According to the Times, the $8 million advance was one of the biggest advances ever given coming in 2nd to Pope John Paul II’s book in 1994. Poor Hillary.
