Hillary Clinton wants to us to know that she is familiar with the “struggles” of being broke and in debt. Heck, she’s been there, and we should feel sorry for her.

Here’s what she said in an interview with Diane Sawyer a few days ago:

“We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt … 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. … Bill has worked really hard — and it’s been amazing to me — he’s worked very hard. First of all, we had to pay off all our debts. He had to make double the money because of obviously taxes and then pay off the debts and get us houses and take care of family members. … I thought making speeches for money was a much better thing than getting connected with any one group or company as so many people who leave public life do.”

Aw. Poor little Hillary. It’s gotta be rough having to pay for those million dollar homes.

John Kass of the Chicago Tribune had this to say about poor ‘ol Hil’s interview:

Listening to Hillary, you could almost hear a stressed woman, say, who works as a cashier at some all-night supermarket and comes home to put her swollen feet in a pan of warm water. Or the man working two or three part-time jobs to feed the kids macaroni and potatoes.

Even Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel seemed a bit skeptical of Hillary Clinton’s comments about her and her husband’s post-White House financial situation.

During an interview in Chicago this morning for her book “Hard Choices,” Emanuel asked Clinton directly about her recent remarks to ABC News.

“Dead broke,” Emanuel said. “Really?”

To some audience laughter at the event for Chicago Ideas Week, Clinton admitted her word choice was not ideal.

“That may have not been the most artful way of saying that Bill and I have gone through a lot of different phases in our lives,” she told Emanuel, a longtime friend and former adviser to President Clinton. “That was then, this is now. Obviously, we are very fortunate. We’ve been given great opportunities.”

Come on, man – she’s got a book to sell! Don’t question her misfortunes. She GETS what is is like for hard-working Americans. Don’t tarnish her moment.

And about that interview…and the post-backlash interview "Killary" did with Robin Roberts…

Tom Hinchey of Western Journalism broke down Hillary’s comments from both interviews:

 

Congratulations, Hillary. You have just cemented your place next to Michelle “let them eat cake” Obama as just another member of the political elite who is out of touch with real Americans.

Hillary’s plight led Twitter users to start a game: #HillaryIsSoPoor.

Does Hillary really think anyone is going to buy this? Even her most die-hard fans should see through this ridiculous attempt to make herself appear to be relatable to real Americans. It is insulting and further proves just how out of touch with reality she is – which is one more reason she shouldn’t run for president in 2016.
