Remember when Hillary Clinton told Diane Sawyer that when she and Bill left the White House they “were dead broke”?
Hillary, poking around at a retraction, now says that the statement was accurate, but “inartful.” WTF does that mean? That isn’t even a word–inartful. Try typing it yourself. You’ll get that red squiggle underneath, alerting you to question it, because either it’s not a word, or it’s a Hillary quote (organically suspicious).
In this video of Clinton’s interview with Jorge Ramos, she tries to explain what she meant. She very quickly shifts gears to say some gibberish about working to give other Americans the same chances she and Bill have had to earn millions. But, you can clearly see Ramos is not buying her digression. Watch.
. . .and a little more on Bill and Hillary’s earnings, from Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner:
Since leaving office, according to financial records and news reports, [the Clintons]have earned at least $155 million from speeches, salaries and book deals, easily outpacing the post-White House incomes of other former presidential families.
“I’ve never had any money until I got out of the White House,” Clinton told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in 2010, in comments similar to Hillary Clinton’s during a TV interview this week. “But I’ve done reasonably well since then.”
The Clinton watchdog group America Rising distributed the video of the Ramos interview today.
Hey, Bill and Hillary, if $155 million is ‘reasonably well’, what’s your definition of rich? wealthy? affluent? Stumped you on that one, did I?
