Jonathan Turley provides a good take-down of Hillary Clinton’s self-serving assertions in her new book, where she tries to minimize her culpability for endorsing the invasion of Iraq and tries to bond with economically struggling people by saying that she and her husband were ‘dead broke’ when they left the White House and had to struggle to pay their mortgage their daughter’s college tuition.
Apart from the fact that the presidency pays handsomely, beyond the wildest dreams of most people, she and her husband knew full well that they would cash in big on speaking fees after they left office. For these people ‘public service’ is what retail businesses call a ‘loss leader’, where you sell something cheaply or even below cost in order to get people into the store so that they will buy other things too.
So she can spare me the calls for sympathy. The Clintons are grifters through and through and it looks like we are never going to be rid of their toxic presence.
