The explanation Hillary Clinton gives to the “income inequality” crowd for her high speaking fees would raise a lot of questions among the MSM if her last name wasn’t “Clinton,” so instead the media just lap it up:
Oh, well that’s that I guess. You just knew they’d find a way to turn “$200k per speech” into “selfless solicitation for charitable donations“:
All the money Clinton has received for appearances at colleges in the past 18 months has been donated to the Clinton Foundation “to continue its life-changing and life-saving work,” the former secretary of state and potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate told ABC News Friday. “So it goes from a foundation at a university to another foundation.”
There’s a 2016 slogan for the Clintons: “From your foundation, to ours. For the children.” Not their child though, because she doesn’t care about money.
Just imagine how that headline would have read if Sarah Palin didn’t pay taxes on her speaking income because she donated it to her own foundation that just happens to pay for family, friends and cronies to fly all around the world.
Somebody not named “Clinton” doing the same thing would be bunking with IRS and/or FEC auditors by now. They sure have come a long way since being dead broke.
What is her salary from the foundation? How much of her expenses are covered by family foundation money? How many members of her family make salaries from that foundation? To what extent is the foundation an income tax dodge? And didn’t Hillary Clinton recently portray herself as not truly rich because she and Bill pay income tax on their money?
Shocker — another Clinton story that doesn’t add up.
