‘Please don’t tell me about how poor you are': Glenn excoriates Hillary Clinton’s latest claims about being ‘dead broke’

Ahead of the release of her memoir Hard Choices, former secretary of state Hillary Clinton has been making the rounds to discuss some of the more savory aspects of the book including the assertion that her family was “dead broke” when they left the White House in 2000 and why she deferred to “the experts” when it came to the September 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya. On radio this morning, Glenn struggled to reconcile Clinton’s remarks.

“I guess I can handle the Hillary Clinton stuff now – ease myself into it,” Glenn said. “We have to put good food in our body. Hillary Clinton is not good food. You are what you eat. I don’t want to be Hillary Clinton.”

While Clinton has appeared in several interviews on several networks already, they chose to focus on the Diane Sawyer interview that aired Monday night on ABC.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

On the issue of Benghazi, Sawyer asked Clinton about the security threat Ambassador Chris Stevens faced. Clinton reiterated that Stevens was at the consulate by “his own choosing,” and refused to classify Benghazi as one of the most dangerous diplomatic posts.

It was important to have diplomatic assets. Were there security threats? Yes, and there are,” Clinton said. “There’s a long list of countries where there are security threats to Americans interests.”

When Sawyer asked if the consulate in Benghazi would be in the top 10 most dangerous, Clinton said “maybe in the top upper 10.”

“It wasn’t the top five, maybe the top upper 10,” Glenn said disgusted. “This person is such a politician, I can’t take it.”

One of the more surprising tidbits to come from Clinton’s book tour is the talking point that she and former President Bill Clinton were somehow “dead broke” upon leaving the White House. Considering, both Clintons command several hundred thousand dollars (minimum) for speaking engagements, and Hillary signed a $8 million book deal upon leaving the White House, her claims are hard to believe. Clinton has, however, doubled down on the claim.

“We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt,” Clinton told Sawyer. “We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses, for Chelsea’s education. You know, it was not easy.”

“Is that when she and Bill lived in the cardboard box under the bridge,” Pat quipped.

As she explained, Clinton believes it was better to make money through speaking engagements “than getting connected with any one group or company as so many people who leave public life do.”

“Please don’t tell me about how poor you are,” Glenn said. “’Honey, we’re going to have Hamburger Helper. Of course next week, we’re going to give that million-dollar speech and I guess we have my $8 million book deal. But we’re having Hamburger Helper this week. Nobody knows the trouble we’ve seen.’”

While there is absolutely nothing wrong with the Clintons using their clout to make money via speeches or anything else, it is utterly disingenuous when you consider the ‘income inequality,’ progressive narrative they preach.

“How disingenuous are these people in general? Here are people who come out and tell us all the time about income inequality… and campaign finance laws. We can’t have big money from these corporations influencing these campaigns,” Stu explained. “[Yet] she will sit here for the next year making $200,000 speeches… which she can use, if needed, for her campaign. [The money is] coming directly from corporations… It will go around all the campaign finance laws that they wrote. It will go against all the premises of income and equality they fight for so hard and nobody will say anything. It’s infuriating.”

The silver lining in this otherwise infuriating situation? You many recall Clinton tried – and failed – to run for president just six years ago.

“The positive reminder here is, while everyone is telling you this woman is an absolute shoe in into president already, remember the reason she’s not our current president is because she is awful,” Stu concluded. “She blew it last time. She could easily blow it again this time. She’s not likable.”

    We were so poor when we lived rent free in the White House for 8 years and then we had to pay taxes and actually buy 2 houses and pay the upkeep on them while Bill was only making $200,000 a speech. How’s a couple of grifter snake oil salesmen supposed to live on that?

      Hillary will lie to get what she wants – always has, always will. She is trying to be seen by voters as someone who is like them – has had the money worries, trials and tribulations etc. She thinks it will make a connection. Too bad the IRS didn’t really look into the filings they had to do. I am sure they never claimed all their assets and wealth – oh those off shore accounts!

It is all in God’s hands now.” (ref here http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/05/15/glenn-becks-emotional-message-to-viewers-together-i-believe-we-will-change-the-world/ ) The price of the flag was reported here among other places http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/glenn-beck-buys-u-s-d-day-flag-350g-article-1.1823379 . Where’s the lie?

        • Watch it

          You are misleading…

          1. Glenn Beck”s Mercury One Charity paid for the flag.
          2. Beck’s Mercury Radio Arts, the business wrote his “last check”. These are two distinct and separate entities.

          Mercury Radio Arts is an incorporated multimedia production company through which Beck produces content for radio, television, publishing, the stage, and the Internet….. the Blaze.

          Mercury One is a non-profit organization, designed to sustain itself through its entrepreneurship without grants or donations. Beck developed a clothing line labeled “1791” which sells clothing to benefit the charity. That is what purchased the flag.

          Obviously the funds cannot be commingled among Mercury Radio Arts Inc., Mercury One Charity, or Glenn Beck personally.

          Another thought – “I have written my last check” does not mean there is no more money.

    • Anonymous

      Given your past posts, I am not surprised that you have no concept of differences between internal corporate budget allotments, or even the difference between company and personal funds. Or the time between the two events. Unlike you, Glenn has an audience that pays monthly to support his business ventures. Yes — that means that money arrives regularly… It’s like your welfare check, only he works for it. Back to your bridge, Troll.

        Having been an entrepreneur / investor 12 years, I know full well the difference between personal and business profit. In this case, it wasn’t business profit that was used at all.

        The flag was purchased by Beck and Mercury-one, Beck’s non-profit. Non-profits are granted special tax treatment in return for doing public good. You may argue that Mercury purchasing the flag may benefit the public somehow, but it seems more of personal interest of Beck’s, which raises the question of proper use of Mercury’s donor’s money.

        Recently, Beck said “We have huge plans. Unfortunately, those plans also have huge budgets, and we don’t have the money, I have written my last check.” Beck seems to be making a similar claim to the one he excoriates Clinton for, but then writes a check for $350,000 using his donor’s money. Do you see no irony in that?

          Living on welfare and buying booze is not the same as being an entrepreneur / investor.

          And no, I see no irony in a foundation making a purchase in line with it’s charter for $350,000. Which we both know is a very small amount in the types of budgets at play here.

          It’s a pathetic attempt to compare Hillary’s personal cry of poor with the ridiculous income her family receives PERSONALLY.

            How, exactly, do you my comments lead you to invent that I’m on welfare? I’d like to understand your logic.

            Beck did claim he wrote his last check. I think that was a bit of an exaggeration, so I do think he’s calling the kettle black when he calls Clinton out on her exaggeration.

            OK, there is an argument that it’s legitimate for a non-profit to spend its money on preserving a piece of history. I think Beck just wanted the flag. Perhaps Mercury’s donors are fine with the way they’re money’s being spent.

          It’s not similar in the least. You are avoiding the entire point of the article, and are attempting to redirect attention onto Glenn. Hillary is trying to connect with her constituents claiming that she and Bill were broke and in so much debt upon leaving the White House. She’s reiterating Bill’s overused statement, “I feel your pain.” Notice in her statement how they couldn’t afford houses…plural! Hillary knows nothing about what it is like to be poor. She was born into wealth, went to the best and most expensive schools, and had a platinum spoon in her socialist mouth the entire time. She married Bill, rode his coat tails into the Governor’s mansion in Arkansas, and then into the White House. Upon leaving the White House, the Clintons did actually owe some real money. But they also received $23 million in book advances, more than offsetting any debt. They moved to NY, bought a mansion that was coined by local neighbors as the “Clinton Compound.” She then won the senate seat, and has continued with her political career that guarantees her 6 figures for speaking engagements. And yet somehow, we are supposed to feel sorry for the poor, under privileged Mrs. Cankles? You may hate Glenn Beck…you may think he spent too much money on a WWII artifact, but he’s not trying to snow anyone into thinking he is something that he is not. Glenn didn’t grow up in a wealthy family, has clearly hit some major bumps through life but became is a self made man anyhow. He embodies the American dream in ways Hillary wishes she could, but never will.

            I agree there are huge differences between Beck and Clinton. Beck is an entertainment businessman first and foremost. Clinton is a public servant. Clinton has a sharp intellect and is a natural born leader. Beck is an innovative huckster evangelist opportunist. Yes, big difference.

  • DonkeyHoatie

    As career public “servants” they have pensions from each of their prior jobs, totaling hundreds of thousands per year for the rest of their lives. POTUS and Governor don’t exactly pay small potatoes for pensions, and that was before she picked up some pensions of her own for Senator and SecState.

    The only reason they could be “broke” would be if they’d incurred debts exceeding their substantial income, which wouldn’t be surprising considering how they manage money while in office.

    • Rhonda Renee Sessions

      Paying their fines, etc., for Bill’s philandering lawsuits against him after he left office. That’s how he lost his license to practice law in Arkansas.

        Because all the House can do, and they know it, is bring the Articles of Impeachment against Obama… similar to a Grand Jury indictment. The Senate has to hold the trial to actually impeach him, and with his most fanatic fan in control of the Senate, Harry Reid, it ain’t gonna happen. That’s why the push to get the Senate back, and why it’s SO important to get the RINOs (Establishment GOP) out of control, too. Then we can get the impeachment done. That’s why Obama is on a fast ‘n furious track to finish his agenda… before the next Congress convenes.

        The US Congress has “NO balls”, it’s just that simple, they’re all impotent. Here we have constitutional violation after constitutional violation – the creation of an Imperial presidency – and the impotent Congress won’t defend their turf. So it comes downs to “No Balls”. There’s plenty of evidence to Impeach Barry Hussein. Barry will go down in history as having been the most destructive president in history and this Congress (both Republicans and Democrats) will go down as the most impotent in history.

        10,000’s of illegals are coming across our southern border, which is huge national security issue, and no one can seem to do anything about it. I don’t like Rick Perry personally, but if he really wants to be president, all he needs to do is call out the Texas National Guard and seal the border. “Seal it up Rick”. And when the federal government comes forward to tell him that he can’t do that, he needs to tell them that until the federal government seals the border, the Texas National Guard is staying. Period Barry – period.

        If Rick Perry has the stones to do that, he’ll be the next President.

    The Clinton’s “left the White House” and moved into three separate, multi-million dollar estates (and they have overseas estates as well). While on a visit to the WHouse in 2007, I was admiring an original painting when a staff member told me that it was one of the pieces of art taken by the Clinton’s when they departed the WHouse. The donor of the painting (a well-known movie producer) personally went to the Clinton’s to “retrieve the painting” and return it to the White House curator. This statement by Ms Clinton is (1) false and (2) underscores why she should NOT be in charge of the Federal Budget.

    I’m sorry but Hillary just put all the nails in her 2016 coffin with that statement.

    “We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt,”
    Clinton told Sawyer. “We had no money when we got there, and we
    struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses (plural), for Chelsea’s education. You know, it was not easy.”

    To me this is just as bad as Romney’s 47% comment.

    You signed an $8 million dollar book deal, Bill gets $100K+ per speech plus this:

    “The retirement benefits received by former Presidents include a
    pension, Secret Service protection, and reimbursements for staff,
    travel, mail, and office expenses. The Presidential pension is not a
    fixed amount, rather it matches the current salary of Cabinet members
    (or Executive Level I personnel), which is $191,300/year as of March,
    2008 (but see “Salary Info” section above for advice on how to track
    increases in this figure).”

    Yeah you left the White House dead broke. This is an insult to
    the people you profess to care so much about who are struggling to put
    food on their table, not lose their job, and somehow explain to their
    kids why they need to graduate college with massive debt. Oh and BTW I

    They’re using the legal bills they racked up defending themselves from such things as lying under oath. They then refused to pay the legal bills, begging others to do so. She is now putting these legal “debts” that they refused to pay up against their income at the time so as to be able to make the “broke” claim. They had plenty of money then and they kept it. Old Bill’s been running around talking about how rich they are. They could have gotten a loan from any bank in the world against their income potential, just on Bill’s retirement alone, so they never EVER had to worry about losing everything like ordinary Americans now do under liberal policies. Nope she’s lying now, she lied then, and she’ll lie in office if, heaven forbid, she makes it.

      That depends upon what you mean by “start” of the war. Both Presidents Truman and Eisenhower sent military advisers to South Vietnam and Kennedy did the same, only in larger numbers. It was President Johnson who asked Congress to provide the executive with the power to use force, as much as necessary, to protect our interests in South Vietnam.

    I can hear SHILLARYS Voice, in her southern Black Pastor Accent,, “I aint to Proud to Beg.. Brother, sister, can you spare a dime?”

    What a bunch of crap, remember the mess the staffers made of the White house as they moved out? Maybe Hillary sold all those ‘W’ keys, missing from all the computer keyboards on eBay, to buy Hookers for Bill…

    You notice Hillary and all her fellow travelers don’t recognize none
    cash assets as worth anything. Sure, they were twelve million in
    debt (I wonder why?) but they had all the words to speak and write to
    get them to millionaire status in no time. More unsettling is she sees
    herself as the agent that could make this happen for others rather
    than seeing that it is our free enterprise system and our wonderful
    constitution and the rule of law that has gotten this country to where it is
    today. Her philosophy will only increase the burdens on our economy
    by increasing regulations, raising taxes and giving no mind to the need
    to repeal ObamaCare. God help us if another Democrat gains the
    White House in 2016!

    You people have got to show more compassion for Hilary. Is it her fault that the standard of living is so high in Washington D.C. ? When she becomes President she will be entirely self-supporting. Once she and her husband are back in the White House they will seek campaign-support from close personal friends like James Riady. This will give them unlimited access to direct bribes from totally illegal foreign campaign-contributors. They will also seek support from other wealthy patrons,..like Marc Rich. I am sure the Clinton’s will issue another full-pardon if the “reward’ match’s their demands. The monetary “reward’ could be discretely deposited in a “numbered account” in a small bank in Switzerland.

    This was a BIG slip and it is going to cost her chances.
    She must have hit her head really hard when she slipped last time.

    What is amazing is that she believes what she is saying. She
    really has convinced herself that she had a hard time of it coming out of the
    White House. And it is yet another indicator that she lives in a dream world
    that is of her own choosing. When you
    can turn lies into facts, wants into needs and really believe they are true, at
    that point most of the general population would be committed to an asylum.

    Is anyone stupid enough to believe these lies. When Bill used his clout for settlement with the tobacco industry her brothers’ (Rodham) law firm got 3 billion dollars of the settlement. Anyone in his right mind knows that was the biggest brother and law deal ever achieved. So her brothers lawfirm got a settlement that would have never been possible without Bill Clinton is going to let his little sister suffer?

    For argument sake lets just assume Hillary is telling the truth and somehow managed to go bankrupt while in the White House.

    If that’s really the case then I’d have to say that you’re not fit to run the country under any circumstances if you couldn’t balance your own budget with a Presidential salary and all the perks.

    I saw a clip of her stating that Ambassador Stevens was in Benghazi ” of his own free will”. Everyone who was shot/killed in that movie theatre was there of their own free will, too. Does that mean it’s their fault they got killed? The man was doing his job. Most people are praised for giving 110% but not Ambassador Stevens. He brought it upon himself. Really?? The look on her face was so smug, like that explained everything. She has completely absolved herself from any wrong doing. I have a real problem with people who are not accountable and a lot of respect for people who admit wrongdoing and try to fix something they broke. You have to “Pay the Piper” if you are going to play that game. She does not fall into the respect category. If she worked with me she’s one of those that would listen to everything everyone says and throw them under the bus if it meant she came out looking better. As for being “dead broke”, gimme a break. Sell one of your houses.

    Barbara Olsen, writes about he despicable Clinton’s very well:”The Final Days-The Last, Desperate Abuses of Power by the Clinton White
    House” By Barbara Olsen

    Olsen died in the Pentagon 9-11 attack and her book was held until until
    the country recovered somewhat. This book exposes the Clinton’s for the
    horrible people they truly are.

    Mrs. Olsen details how the Clinton’s and Rodham’s [Hillary’s relatives]
    enriched themselves with “Pardons For Sale” in a mad rush to sell
    pardons as Bill left office on the last day including Marc Rich, with his
    connections to Castro, Gaddafi even asking his brother Roger for names
    from his prison days. Clinton signed 140 pardons and 36 sentence
    commutations on the last day causing one commentator to say”not since
    the opening of the gates to the Bastille have so many criminals been
    liberated in a single day”

    In a flurry of activity Clinton set aside 8 new national monuments and
    signed executive orders like a rock star at an autograph session.He
    filled 2000 pages of federal regulations snowmobiles in national parks.
    to air conditioning, to the very definition of existence for his
    abortion friends, He nominated 9 new Federal Judges and packed every
    available board and commission with his pals and cronies and contributors.

    Hillary shamelessly solicited gifts-a shakedown artist in a pink dress-
    and how the Clinton White House followed the principle of “if it ain’t
    nailed down take it” a disgusting act of stealing from taxpayers their
    property in the white House to fill a new mansion in New York Senator
    Clinton, a carpet bagger from Arkansas.” There is far more…..

    What’s with the sarcasm? Hillary Clinton was stating facts that when she and Bill Clinton left the White House, they were not only broke but owed over 10 million dollars. She didn’t say they stayed that way. She didn’t say they were still dead broke.

  • John Scott

    Hillary Clinton is a perfect example of a power hungry politician. Who never cares about serving the people. Its truly only about power and control. The scary part is that you know she is so cold that the people who died in Benghazi because of her never bothers her. Because she convinces herself and I imagine the people close to her convince her. That its not her fault. She is like Obama, they can never see themselves as being wrong. She should never be allowed to hold any office again. She is incapable of serving the people. She is self serving exclusively.

    They bought two expensive houses. How about we look at the mortgage applications that must reflect income, assets, and liabilities. Income must be ‘seasoned’, so if both were ‘unemployed’, what did the mortgage lender use as income? How did they get around the FHA requirements? What ‘sweet deals’ did they get from the bank? If they were ‘broke’, what lies did they spin? What was their credit rating? And when will we get back the furniture they stole?

  • Brenda Sue Lewis-Sullivan

    Not only that…am I the only one who heard her back up Obama and the release of the 5 for a deserter by saying he had to listen to people in the know, people trusted to bring him the truth about situations but yet, Bush caught hell for doing the same thing and going into Iraq looking for weapons of mass destruction.
    Plus how hard they had to work she said that 3 or 4 times, like the America public don’t know what hard work is, or that they worked harder then we do….really.
    I was ticked by the time her interview was half over and switched channels..she makes me puke.

    Maybe the Clintons WERE broke when they left the White House. They had gone through scandals and left the only home they had been living in for a bunch of years. Probably when they got there they sold any other house they had. When the 2000 election was over and President Bush had his turn both Hillary and Bill said something about being broke and not having anywhere to live. Goodness knows why nobody did any house hunting before leaving the WH but maybe it’s not an easy thing to do for a First Family.

    WOW! And this woman who apparently can’t control her husband OR her FINANCES wants to run the worlds BIGGEST ECONOMY??? Oh but don’t worry. There are a lot of college seniors at Georgetown ( even the guys sound like pot smoking valley girls ) who believe that she’s qualified…BECAUSE SHE’S A WOMAN!!!
    First we get our first black pResident BECAUSE he’s black ( thanks racist black people ), now we have a bunch of sexist, male hating women ( they must be feminazis ) who believe that Hill(ary)Billy is qualified because she did such a great job with Benghazi and because she has OVARIES!!! GOD help us!!!
    I don’t want Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman, Ben Carson or Steele to be President because of their gender or race. I want them because they are either smart or have the “CONTENT of CHARACTER” that it takes to be a good President. Apparently all blacks and liberals have forgotten these words from Dr. MLK Jr. And it probably doesn’t even make sense to the Gloria Steinham crowd.

  • Anonymous

    How funny. The President himself makes a hefty sum. Today it is $450,000. per year not counting outside monies and I’m quite sure that it was equivalent pay for the time Clinton was in office. And a great deal of their expenses are paid for by tax dollars. Hillary was even caught when the moving trucks were moving them out of the WH stealing valuable antiques, irreplaceable items from past Presidents. That was in the newspaper at the time y the way. Come on people she is a liar, and minimally an attempted thief and has made some very bad decisions. She is not someone of any credibility nor good character. But I’m also against establishing political dynasties. No more Clintons, Bushes, Kennedy’s or any prominent politically established power brokers. This is the real change we need. Well, at least one of them.

  • William Svoboda

    She is not likable, is the bottom line. For five years Obama could at least be said was likable. With Hillary I don’t know one person who has ever said she was a warm or wouldn’t it be great to have her as a friend, or anything else that would inspire confidence. She acts like they came to Washington driving Jed Clampett’s old truck and they left eight years later the same way they came in.

    Dead Broke? “If you buy that I’ll throw the Golden Gate in free!” Is that why they stole half the White House’s antique furniture? Have you seen videos of the Clinton’s New York estate? Bill and Hillary love Cuntemporary and Modern. Where’s the stuff she couldn’t bear to part with? Fenced at Sotheby’s? That was OUR furniture! Why didn’t Lame Stream Media put them UNDER the jail? Let media return her in 2016? Watch Billary Pillory America!
