The Clintons are working overtime to get everyone to forget that Hillary said they were “dead broke.” They want to turn the conversation towards a more palatable… “we’re not really rich.” If this entire money fiasco doesn’t prove to Democrats how out of touch Hillary Clinton actually is – nothing ever will.
I don’t know who told Hillary that it would be better to tell people that they weren’t “really wealthy” – but that person should be fired immediately. That’s akin to eating a hamburger in front of a starving person and then saying “don’t worry, it didn’t taste that good.”
In short – it’s condescending and ridiculous.

Democrats are in a lot of trouble if media keeps this pressure up.
As much as they love the Clintons, the media just can’t stop talking about how rich the Clintons really are. They’ve also begun to acknowledge that the Clintons didn’t have to work very hard to get their money either.
“And let’s remember how they acquired their wealth. They didn’t do it in some incredible business, creating jobs and all this. They just acquired wealth for being the Clintons. … This is not like shoveling coal, this is not like building a factory… it’s not like they’ve acquired their wealth from hard work.”
Joe Scarborough at MSNBC digs even deeper and also notes that “where” the money is coming from may be as big of a problem as the money itself.
