Hillary: I’m Unlike the ‘Truly Well Off’

Hillary Clinton just made the first gaffe of the 2016 presidential campaign. In an interview with The Guardian, Clinton defended herself as a credible candidate to fight America’s growing income inequality because she is “unlike a lot of people who are truly well off.” It’s not completly clear how the former Secretary of State was trying to distinguish herself from the “truly well off,” but it is curious since she and her husband have earned more than $100 million in speaking fees and books just since 2001. Apparently, Hillary believes the fact that she pays “ordinary income taxes” and has earned her wealth “through dint of hard work” makes her a crusader for the 99 percent. Or at least she hopes so, for the sake of her likely presidential run.
