Bill Clinton, though sounding increasingly frail, still has undiminished ability to try to con the American people. Here are his comments trying to explain away Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and put words in FBI Director Comey’s mouth, cleverly juxtaposed by the Washington Free Beacon with the actual statements by Comey.
This is the forgotten part of the interview in 1998 where Hillary Clinton described the “vast right wing conspiracy” she said was after her husband. In this segment of the interview, she very clearly threatens Bill’s accusers and lets other potential ones know in the most public way possible what they will face. She said:
I think that when all of this is put into context, and we really look at the people involved here, look at their motivations and look at their backgrounds, look at their past behavior, some folks are going to have a lot to answer for.
Hillary Clinton’s role in trying to intimidate or suppress the stories of women her husband had affairs with is a legitimate topic of conversation and inquiry, given that a foundation of her campaign is women’s rights and that she would be the first woman president.
Bill Clinton didn’t just engage in affairs, he is guilty of the type of sexual harassment in his conduct with Monica Lewinsky that would haver ruined the career of any CEO in the private sector. And he may be guilty of much more. Bill Clinton’s conduct is relevant because, as Hillary herself just recently noted, he is going to have a major role in her White House “fixing” the economy, and God knows with what else.
Unfortunately for them, in Donald Trump, they face the kind of adversary who will have no restraint in constantly highlighting the seamy underside of the money and power accumulation machine that is the Clintons.
Bill and Hillary Clinton have now completely escaped the poverty that plagued them after leaving the White House in 2001, having together earned more than $11 million in 2015 from speeches and book sales.
You may remember, Mrs. Clinton said she left the White House dirt broke and had to either start flipping burgers, working on an assembly line, or join her husband giving hour-long speeches for absurd amounts of money and having someone ghostwrite a best-selling book for her. Well that’s not exactly what she said. In any case, she chose the latter, and it seems to have paid off.
The Clintons earned $6.7 million from paid speeches in 2015, including $2.7 million Bill netted after his wife officially began running for president, which might not be such a kosher-for-passover idea since he will be serving as co-president.
Also contributing to their income were sales of Mrs. Clinton’s latest book, Hard Choices, which focused on the difficulty she has every morning deciding which color pantsuit to wear. From the book, she earned a cool $5 million.
The Clinton’s net worth is somewhere between $11.3 million and $52.7 million. Between $5 million and $25 million is held in cash, presumably in case of new bimbo eruptions targeting Bill.
Hillary Clinton said over the weekend that she will put Bill in charge of the economy. “My husband, who, I’m gonna put in charge of revitalizing the economy, ’cause you know, he knows how to do it,” she said. Let’s think about this. There, for the most part, are two things a president does: Foreign… Continue Reading
Hand to hand – verbal – combat. Not sure how this will play. He’s accusing Black Lives Matter protestors of supporting killers of black people. Hillary needs African Americans, and already gets them. So probably this can only hurt. Continue Reading
Uh, I don’t know, seems like the old man has veered off message again. President Obama is very popular among Democrats, even if that seems a little irrational to you and me. And Hillary needs to keep the black voter who are in her corner and who love the president. Goes to my theory that… Continue Reading
Uhh, Bill Clinton Thursday night accidentally let his ancient hatred of Barack Obama come through, saying that Obama is not “a change maker” and Hillary is “the best change maker I’ve ever known.” Hillary? Change maker? Hmm, he must have been talking about her speaking fees. But of course in that regard, Bill himself is the… Continue Reading
Monday was the day the Hillary campaign unleashed Bill Clinton, once again sending him out to stump for his wife. While she is the Democratic front-runner, email investigations are swirling and her favorability ratings are down in the dumper, so it was thought the better-liked Bubba could add some pleasant pizzazz to his bland wife’s bland… Continue Reading
