In a famous “Sixty Minutes” segment years ago, commentator Andy Rooney was remarking on mobile homes. He asked, “If they’re mobile homes, why don’t they ever go away?” The same can be said about Hillary Rodham Clinton.
How long must America suffer through Hillary’s abuse excuse for losing the 2016 presidential election. She has blamed the Russians, the deplorables, the vast right wing conspiracy, the Electoral College, the media and everything else under the sun except herself.
But like her boss before her, Barack Obama and wife Michelle, making some $65 million for their upcoming books, Hillary is all about greed. For those who either did not know this before last year’s election, or are now just waking up, the so-called liberals, “voice of the downtrodden,” are cashing in big time.
Barack Obama once said, “I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.” That obviously is not the case at this time for the former president who has a lifetime taxpayer-subsidized pension to go with the $65 million dollar book deal. Is he waiving the pension in lieu of his newfound riches? Yeah, right.
No, that certain point of making enough money is for you, the average Joe, not them. It always has been and always will be with the limousine liberals who bask in Hollywood’s praises and are the biggest hypocrites on the planet. The champions of the poor don’t mingle with the great unwashed behind their 16 foot walls and private armed guards.
But Hillary, despite her vast fortune emanating from the corrupt Clinton Foundation, wants much more. Here’s what Hillary does want:
Starting next month, the former Democratic presidential nominee embarks on a tour across the United States and Canada to promote “What Happened,” her memoir about running against Donald Trump for president. So far, so good. Here comes the utter greed of the woman.
For $2,375.95 (or $3,000 in Canadian dollars), Clinton fans in Toronto can obtain a “VIP platinum ticket” for her Sept. 28 talk. That ticket includes two front-row seats, a photo with Clinton backstage and a signed book.
“It is standard for high profile authors to do book tours that sell tickets to events, but Clinton’s tour takes it to a new level of greed,” an industry source told Fox News. General admission tickets to Clinton’s events are offered, too, for a lower price than the VIP versions. In Toronto, all the $70.49 (or $89 in Canadian currency) tickets for Clinton’s lecture have already sold out.
Mark Steyn on Fox News had fun with this. He compared the prices to that of a Broadway show, saying that at the New York appearance, attendees might get a “restricted view of a full chorus of Macedonian content farmers dancing behind her, explaining why she lost the election.”
You see, Clinton once blamed “fake news sites” in the Balkan nation for causing her to lose the election. Steyn said that there are scores of “Saudi princes and Sudanese warlords” who are upset with Clinton only charging North Americans $2400 to meet her.
The Saudis paid millions to the corrupt Clinton Foundation for favors while she was secretary of state. What they got was a lecture by Chelsea Clinton on the ravages of dysentery in some God awful place like Somalia. Then they could meet Hillary.
Maybe this is a hell of a steal for the common, average Joe. Imagine meeting one of the biggest crooks ever to run for the presidency at this bargain basement price.
It seems there is no end to the greed of the Clintons, nor to their endless whining.
