H/T: Legal Insurrection.
At the Washington Post, Clinton Media Operative Chris Cilizza tries to explain that her six-figure speeches to Wall Street weren’t really a big deal because Wall Street hedge fund managers really do think it’s worth six figures to hear Hillary yap for half an hour on what it was like to be Secretary of State under Obama.
I generally take Clinton at her word when she describes what the nature of her speeches were: Recounting high profile events and her role in them. “I probably described more times than I can remember how stressful it was advising the president about going after Bin Laden,” she told Chuck on Thursday night.
That makes perfect sense to me; if you are paying several hundred thousand dollars to hear someone like Clinton speak, what you generally want to hear is what it was like to be her in a variety of big/important moments. These speeches, I bet, are largely just a string of anecdotes by Clinton.
Yeah, those honoraria weren’t bribes at all, and you’re silly for thinking so.
With everything else failing, the Hillary Campaign is down to the last refuge of scoundrels: You’re a misogynist if you don’t vote for Hillary.
