Clinton: Bill and I Were Broke After WH


bill-clintonIt’s tough out there for struggling, middle-aged couples-even those who once lived in the White House. In an interview with Diane Sawyer that will air Tuesday, Hillary Clinton revealed that she and former President Bill Clinton owed hefty legal fees after his presidency.

“We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt,” Clinton said. “We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses, for Chelsea’s education. You know, it was not easy.”

The former Secretary of State defended the millions in speaking fees the power couple has since earned, saying it’s a “much better thing than getting connected with any one group or company as so many people who leave public life do.” Read more at ABC.

  1. i dont buy a minute of that. i bet shes trying to make people feel bad for her so she will get the votes and we all know she will get it (im not saying she will win)

  2. I don’t begrudge the Clintons their speaking fees, if this is the going rate. I’m just trying to figure out how they were broke after all that time in the White House. I understand that not all expenses are covered for the POTUS and FLOTUS and family but still, what am I missing?
    (I’ll wait till the book hits the library, if I’m really curious….)

  3. Its all about her problems. Its not about the American people and their problems.

    Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton is a selfish brat!
