College kids spoof Hillary with fictitious fund for broke politicians; fight back laughter

They’re in a demographic that gave its votes to Barack Obama twice in 2008 and 2012, but maybe there’s hope for college students yet.

CampusReform.org Editor-in-Chief Caleb Bonham set out on the campus of Georgetown University this week to find out how sympathetic college students might be to the plight of politicians like Hillary Clinton, who  made the unlikely claim to interviewer Diane Sawyer that she and her husband were “dead broke” when they left the White House in 2001.

Fortunately for those who still have faith in the future of the country, most of the next generation’s best and brightest weren’t buying into Bonham’s fictitious Hillary Clinton Fund for “Dead Broke” Politicians.

Unfortunately, Bonham’s group did find two women willing to open their purses after CampusReform.org’s pitch – Hillary 2016 voters who’ve already committed apparently (or should be committed.)

Check out the video here. The spoof setup of Sally Field’s “Save the Children” campaign is worth it by itself.

Then watch Bonham discuss it on “Fox and Friends.” It’s time well spent.
