Clinton President 2016: ‘Poor Hillary’ Video By RNC Attacks Her Speaking Fees In New Ad

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is the target of a Republican Party video unleashed Thursday morning that goes after her sky-high speaking fees. The clip was released on PoorHillaryClinton.com, a Republican National Committee-run site that mocks Clinton for saying she was “dead broke” when she and President Bill Clinton left the White House in 2001.

“Hillary Clinton thinks she’s ‘dead broke,’ but she earns more in one speech than nearly 90 percent of all Americans earn in an entire year,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus in a statement, referring to the interview Clinton gave with ABC News’ Diane Sawyer in June, shortly before the release of her memoir, “Hard Choices.” She later said she regretted the remark. “It was accurate, but we are so successful and we’re so blessed by the success we’ve had, and my husband has worked incredibly hard,” she told Fusion’s Jorge Ramos. “What I worry about is not my family. I worry about other families in our country who feel like they’re running in place.”

Priebus also suggested that Hillary Clinton is a diva. “Not only is she willing to charge cash-strapped universities a quarter-million dollars for a speech, but she also has a long list of demands, everything from elaborate food spreads to chartered jets,” he said. “This is just one more reminder that Hillary is out of touch, and we need to keep her out of the White House.”

Clinton is universally expected to make a run for the presidency in 2016, but she has not actually announced. In the RNC’s infomercial-style video called “Poor Hillary,” a pitchman targets groups looking to hire speakers for their events and “who are tired of easy-going, low-hassle keynote lecturers.” The video claims Clinton receives about $46 per second for a speech.
