Ripped From The Headlines: Clinton “Stumbles,” and “Struggles” With Answer On Speaking Fees

The negative info flow for Hillary Clinton continues, as the story coming out of CNN’s New Hampshire Democratic forum is Hillary Clinton’s tone deaf answer on her exorbitant speaking fees. Senator Bernie Sanders has been putting the heat on Clinton over the millions in speaking fees Clinton has made, yet it was Clinton’s own words about why she took over $600,000 for three speeches that have set the political world on fire.

For the Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza, Clinton’s answer of “that’s what they offered,” to the question of why she was paid so much will “haunt” Hillary Clinton for “some time to come.” See below for many more headlines that show this issue isn’t going anywhere for Secretary Clinton:
