Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was speaking at Iowa Brown and Black Forum broadcast on Fusion on Monday, and was asked what ‘white privilege’ means to her. Flashback to Hillary Clinton claiming that when she and Bill left the White House they were ‘dead broke, and struggling.’
Here is what she said in 2014:
“You have no reason to remember, but we came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt,” Clinton said. “We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea’s education. It was not easy. Bill has worked really hard. And it’s been amazing to me. He’s worked very hard.”
Let’s review how ‘dead broke’ the Clinton’s were, HT Politifact.
The Clintons’ balance sheet:
Clinton’s 2000 Senate financial disclosure form, via the Open Secrets website, provides a rough view of the balance between the couple’s assets and liabilities. These forms only show amounts in broad ranges — from $15,001 to $50,000, from $50,001 to $100,000 and so forth — but under any set of assumptions, the Clintons were in the red, a problem driven by Bill Clinton’s enormous legal bills.
Their highest possible assets totaled about $1.8 million, while their lowest possible debts were nearly $2.3 million. The most optimistic scenario left them in a hole of about $500,000.
But the federal disclosure form does not include homes used for personal use and the Clintons owned two. In 1999, they bought a five-bedroom home in Chappaqua, N.Y., for $1.7 million. In December 2000, just as they were leaving the White House, they bought a seven-bedroom house near Embassy Row in Washington, D.C. The price was $2.85 million.
While those homes had mortgages, which would increase the amount of the Clintons’ debt, the family also had equity in them. The New York Times reported that the Clintons put $855,000 down on the Washington house, for instance. That equity would have covered the low-end debt estimate of about $500,000.
New, let’s listen to her answer to the question:

Here is Hillary Clinton in 2014: We left the White House ‘dead broke, and we struggled…” Clinton is not only delusional, she is a pathological liar.
The scary part, Liberal America wants this woman as President.
