On CNN’s “Early Start” Monday morning, hosts Miguel Marquez and Alison Kosik laughed at Hillary Clinton for telling the Guardian that she and Bill are “not truly well off” despite the fact that the couple has grossed more than $100 million since 2001.
“Really?” Marquez asked, in disbelief of Clinton’s continued effort to justify her “dead broke” comment to Diane Sawyer in an interview earlier this month. Kosik laughed in reply.
The CNN hosts also spotlighted Clinton’s statement that she and her husband are different from most millionaires because they have “done it through the dint of hard work.”
“This follows her comment about them struggling to afford mortgages on their estates,” detailed Marquez. “Critics say it’s another example of Clinton being out of touch with working Americans.”
“Of their estates. More than one,” Kosik clarified.
Marquez called this “political ammunition” for Republicans if Clinton decides to run for the presidency in 2016.
“I don’t know what to do with my millions,” joked the CNN host. “It’s very tough.”
Clearly, Clinton is suffering, probably from some derivative of foot-in-mouth disease. She should probably stop talking before working Americans start to look at her like they do Gwyneth Paltrow.
