Jesus, give it a rest already.
In an interview with Der Spiegel, the German magazine, Hillary Clinton doubles down on her claim that she was “dead broke” when leaving the White House.
“You recently described your financial situation during the presidency of your husband Bill Clinton as dead broke,” says Der Spiegel.
“Well, when we came out of the White House, we were deeply in debt because of all the legal bills that we owed because of the relentless persecution of my husband and myself, and he had to work unbelievably hard to pay off every single penny of every debt we owed. And we did,” Clinton responds.
Relentless persecution? Who the hell is she kidding?
The magazine posits, “Today, you are multimillionaires. Your husband has earned $104 million with his speeches since 2001.”
To which the former secretary of state responds, “We are very grateful for where we are today. But if you were to go back and look at the amount of money that we owed, we couldn’t even get a mortgage on a house by ourselves. In our system he had to make double what he needed in order just to pay off the debt, and then to finance a house and continue to pay for our daughter’s education.”
Just shut up already.
