The arrogance and greed of the Clintons in these troubled economic times is absolutely stunning. Does anyone believe that Hillary Clinton can actually empathize with ordinary working Americans?
Hillary claimed she was broke. One of her supporters claimed she was just trying to earn a living. Now thanks to Laura Myers of the Las Vegas Review Journal, we learn what it takes to get Hillary to appear at a fundrasier for a state university.
The former Secretary of State insists on staying in the ‘presidential suite’ of a luxury hotel of her staff’s choice, with up to five other rooms reserved for her travel aides and advance staff. Clinton also reportedly requires that the Foundation provide a private plane. However, the jet can not be any private plane; only a $39 million, 16-passenger Gulfstream G450 “or larger” will do the job.
Don’t expect Hillary to settle for some dinky $20 million private jet. Only the G450 will do.
And don’t shove her off into the Secretary of State suite. It’s the Presidential Suite or you can get Joe Biden to fundraise for your little state university.
But let’s not forget the classic Clinton paranoia.
The only record allowed will be made by a stenographer whose transcription will be given only to Clinton. The stenographer’s $1,250 bill, however, will go to the UNLV Foundation.
Hillary manages to…
1. Exercise complete control over the official record of her remarks
2. And stick the University of Nevada with the bill
It’s like she sits up at 3 AM thinking of these things.
I wrote last month that Hillary Clinton’s uncontrollable greed is destroying her presidential campaign.
The Clintons could never stop shoveling every cent into their pockets. They were physically incapable of leaving money on the table. A lot of Democrats haven’t forgotten Pardongate and the disgraceful way that the Clintons left the White House. They just pretended to forget during Hillary’s Senate race.
Many are nauseated by the scale of Clintonworld, the hundreds of millions of dollars that have poured into the Clinton Foundation, an organization whose fundraising is disproportionate to the scale of its accomplishments, and directly into the pockets of Bill, Hillary and even Chelsea.
But this is nothing.
The Clintons are going to use these years to build a massive public and private war chest leveraging Hillary’s status as a presidential front runner.
Win or lose they are going to walk away with an even bigger fortune than ever.
