Bill Clinton: Hillary’s Not Out Of Touch; We Talk To Chappaqua Neighbors

Bill Clinton came to the defense of Hillary Clinton amidst criticism of her out of touch comments about being “dead broke” after leaving the White House and currently are unlike the “truly well off” because of their tax payments.

Former President Clinton argued that they were not out of touch since they “talk to people in their town” in ritzy Chappaqua New York, the 40th wealthiest town in America with a median income of over $160k. He also volunteered that they “go to the grocery store” and that he had the “lowest net worth” of any 20th Century President when he took office.

The 1% bubble they are living in might be even thicker than we first imagined.

BILL CLINTON: “I think I had the lowest net worth of any American president in the 20th century when I took office. But I still could have been tone deaf. And, you know, now I don’t. And we’ve got a great life and I’m grateful for it. But I still, we go to our local grocery store on the weekend. We talk to people in our town. We know what’s going on.
