Chelsea Clinton Just Cares Too Much About People to Care About Money

Has there ever been a better example of being handed a silver platter?
Check it out:

The Chelsea story’s in the New York Daily News: Hillary Clinton insists she isn’t ‘well-off’ and now daughter Chelsea says she couldn’t care less about money. ‘I was curious if I could care about (money) on some fundamental level, and I couldn’t,’ she told UK’s The Telegraph, explaining why she gave up lucrative gigs to join her family’s philanthropic foundation. Comparing her experience to the average millennial, the 34-year-old former first daughter defended jumping around to different careers — from consulting to a hedge fund to academia to journalism — before finding her true calling working with her parents.”

Aw. Her true calling working with her parents is going to guarantee her a lot of money without having to work for it. Who are they trying to kid here? But this point (imitating Hillary), “You know, we tried to make Chelsea care about money, but she’s so good, Chelsea’s such a decent person, Chelsea’s such a good person, we couldn’t make her care. Chelsea doesn’t need a dime. She is happy if she’s penniless. Chelsea couldn’t care less about money.” And it’s phony, folks. These people are obsessed with it. They’re obsessed with being rich, and they have been for I don’t know how long, and that’s why Hillary is stepping in it.

But I can’t emphasize enough, when she says that we’re not well-off, she’s talking about a world that 99% of people on the planet don’t understand and can’t relate to. And that’s the big mistake. She thinks that she is establishing a bond of commonality with the middle class. “We’re not well-off. Who are you kidding? We pay ordinary income taxes like everybody.” No. Everybody doesn’t pay ordinary income taxes on income of a hundred million dollars.

And, by the way, Chelsea Clinton, that gig at NBC that she had, she never had any experience being on television. She had so little experience with the media to begin with because her parents had shielded her. They didn’t want any media of her as she was growing up and the media complied with that request. Because the media is a bunch of sycophants and they always wanted to stay tight and close to the Clintons for access. So the Clintons said, “You leave Chelsea alone.” And they did. They never once, there wasn’t a profile, there wasn’t a story, there was zilch, zero, nada on Chelsea.
