‘Not Truly Well Off’: Bill Clinton Was Paid $105 MILLION For 542 Speeches Since 2001

–  “Not Truly Well Off”: Bill Clinton Was Paid $105 Million For 542 Speeches Since 2001 (ZeroHedge, June 27, 2014):

In Hillary Clinton’s attempt to seem “one of the people”, she made the public relations debacle of portraying herself as “dead broke” at the time she and Bill Clinton left the White House. Of course, the reason this attempt at populist pandering backfired is because as is well-known, even the least educated American, the bulk of wealth American president families accrue is not while in office but after, when they hit the speaking/book publishing circuit. This is just what WaPo found when it conducted a review of the Clintons’ federal financial disclosure: it found that Bill was paid $104.9 million for delivering 542 speeches around the world between January 2001 and January 2013, when Hillary left her job as secretary of state.
