Want to see a fascinating little tidbit, which anyone who follows Hillary Clinton – by that I mean with an open mind instead of with his/her tongue hanging out and salivating with love and joy – will not at all be surprised by?
Here is the first paragraph of Stephan Braun and Jack Gillum\’s article for the Associated Press, via The Washington Post:
In the Clinton administration\’s final months, then-first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton took an active role in White House efforts to give tax breaks to private foundations and wealthy charity donors at the same time that the William J. Clinton Foundation was soliciting donations for her husband\’s presidential library, Clinton-era documents show.
That, sports fans, is the same Hillary Clinton who is trying to package herself as a champion of the middle class and working people. The same one who these same wealthy benefactors – all of whom have things they want from the Clintons and their political influence – pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for “speeches”.
Speeches about what? What could Hillary Clinton possibly say in a speech that would be worth even a fraction of the $200,000 plus she averages per speech? How can anyone with a functioning cerebrum not understand that this is a payoff, a bribe, for what they can get from her and Hubby Bubba.
The Clintons have turned selling political influence into an art form. Many others have done it in the past, but no one that I am aware of has come close to where Bill and Hill have taken it.
Champion of the middle class and working people? You would have to be a spud to believe that.
