Clinton buddy defends Hillary on ‘dead broke’ line; ‘compared to a lot of rich friends,’ Chuck Todd says

One of the most outlandish statements Hillary Clinton made in the months preceding her announcement that she was running for president was to say she was “dead broke” when she left the White House.

While most liberals won’t touch the subject, there are still some who try to find a way to defend it.

Among them is Virginia Gov.Terry McAuliffe, who appeared on NBC’s “Meet The Press” Sunday to defend the queen.

Host Chuck Todd asked McAuliffe if Clinton’s declaration that she and Bill had ”nothing” is something she has to fix going forward in the campaign.

“A lot of people will see something like that and then say ‘You know what, they didn’t have nothing. They were, they had huge earning power, they had access. They had nothing compared to a lot of rich friends,’” Todd said.

Outrage! Judge hammers white victims of armed home invasion for racism, lets criminal go free.

McAuliffe insisted the statement made by the former secretary of state was accurate.

“I was with them. I was a personal friend. I’ve been friends with them since 1980,” he said. “I cannot tell you the distress in that family at that time with all the issues and all the legal fees — banks refusing to give them a mortgage. So, listen, people go through tough financial times.”

Yes, she was just like all the other struggling, unemployed Americans at that time except they couldn’t charge $300,000 per speech and get an $8 million book advance.

Bottom line: Not even Chuck Todd would buy it. And he’ll buy anything.


Hillary cries poverty: Bill and I were ‘dead broke’ and in debt when we left White House.
