Bill Clinton: I Have to Give Paid Speeches Because I Didn't Make Money in the Stock Market

Bill Clinton

The Clintons are really doubling down on their "Flat broke" narrative.

Why he still gives paid speeches:

You know, I had my heart problem, first one thing then another happened. And then when Hillary became secretary of state—actually, when she ran for president, then when she became secretary of state—I decided that we wouldn’t have any investments. So I left the money in the bank, and the good news is, I missed the stock-market crash; the bad news is that I missed the uptake. So I just left the money in the bank. So I still have to work a little bit, but I don’t mind that. I enjoy that. I like those speeches: I get up and meet people all over the world and all over the country and learn things I wouldn’t learn otherwise. It keeps me in touch with the life of younger people, which I like.

Smart Whitewater investors like the Clintons missed the stock market? How awful. Now they're back to being flat broke. Bill fails to mention that this was because of his wife's presidential campaign. Before that they had lots of money invested with Ron Burkle.

The Clintons have made around $100 million. And Bill wants us to believe that he has to work because he just left the money in the bank. Both he and his wife make six figures a speech. They have one adult married daughter into another wealthy family.

What exactly does he have to pay for that all the money can't cover?

How stupid does he... oh right. The American people voted for him twice. He's got a point. There are people out there dumb enough to believe that Bill Clinton gives paid speeches because he just doesn't have enough money to support all his mansions.
