Hillary’s $100,000 two-week vacation rental says she’s just like us; ‘give granny a break’

In an effort to convince the America people that she’s just one of the folks, Hillary Clinton said last year that she and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, left the White House “dead broke.”

It’s safe to say the down-and-out couple has managed to scrape together a few bucks since then.

So much so that the Democratic presidential candidate is reportedly spending a whopping $100,000 to rent an $18 million vacation home in the Hamptons for two weeks — an estate the Clintons secured last year for three weeks for the same paltry sum, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

As audacious as that may sound, since Hillary Clinton is in the middle of a presidential run and appearances matter, the Clintons actually scaled back from the $200,000 they spent in 2013.

The former secretary of state not only spent 87 times what the average American would pay for an entire summer of fun, but it was $20,000 more than Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio spent on what the New York Times described as a “luxury speedboat.”

As for the reaction on social media, some suggest that Americans should “give granny a break.” Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
