Hillary Clinton needs a vacation. The champion of everyday Americans will head the Hamptons on August 21 for a two-week stay at an $18 million beachfront estate. The Clintons are reportedly shelling out $100,000 for the rental, which is a little less than 30-minutes worth of “work” on the speaking circuit. Everyday Americans, by comparison, spend an average of $1,145 per person on summer travel.
Citizens of America, I write to you in a time of great peril. The future of our country is at stake; it’s very survival could depend on the outcome of next year’s presidential election. Since the death of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, my childhood bridge partner and longest-serving President of the United States, the American public has sullied the White House with the corrupting stench of commoners’ musk.
Wall Street bankers prefer Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders by a wide margin, a Free Beacon analysis has found. In the second quarter of 2015, here’s how much money each candidate reported receiving from employees of Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan, Citigroup, Blackstone, and individuals listing their employer as “hedge fund.”
“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to work for free.”
The Hillary Clinton campaign likes to brag about its frugal ways, but this austere philosophy is not always applied consistently. Campaign manager John Podesta may take the bus every now and then, but the Clinton campaign is more than happy to pick up the rent tab for Hillary’s personal office in Manhattan, and to shell out for a private jet to make sure Hillary doesn’t have to interact with any commoners before giving a speech on social inequality.
Hillary Clinton gave a speech Tuesday near Ferguson, Missouri, site of anti-police riots inspired by the controversial shooting death of Michael Brown. Clinton’s speech at Christ the King United Methodist Church of Christ in the nearby town of Florissant focused on issues of racial and social inequality. “Despite our best efforts and our highest hopes, America’s long struggle with race is far from finished,” she said. “We can’t hide from hard truths about race and justice. We have to name them, own them and change them.”
Naturally, she arrived in a private jet. After the speech, Clinton was whisked away to a $2,700-per-person fundraiser hosted by a Budweiser heiress.
