  • Clinton claimed Monday in an interview with Diane Sawyer that she and her husband were "dead broke and in debt" after leaving the White House.
  • Between 2008 and 2012, Bill Clinton received his annual $200K pension and Hillary received a $200K salary as Secretary of State.
  • Former first lady, Senator, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told ABC’s Diane Sawyer on Monday that the Clintons were “dead broke and in debt” after leaving the White House in 2001.

    “We came out of the White House not only dead broke but in debt. Uh, we had no money when we got there, and we struggled to, y'know, piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea's education. You know, it was not easy,” Clinton said.

    Campus Reform decided to ask students at Georgetown University what they thought of the former Secretary of State’s claim.

    “I just graduated from college so I’m dead broke, Hillary,” one Georgetown graduate said.

    “That is so hard to believe,” said one woman who donated five cents.

    As the Clintons left the White House in 2001 Hillary secured an $8 million dollar book advance for her memoir Living History.

    Clinton claimed that she was $12 million in debt after leaving the White House. The Washington Post reports that between 2008 and 2012, Bill Clinton received an annual $200,000 presidential pension while Hillary drew a $200,000 salary as Secretary of State.

    Hillary and Bill Clinton reportedly have made over $100 million since leaving the White House.

    Campus Reform has mailed the entirety of the collected $5.62 to Hillary Clinton’s posh Washington. D.C. residence.

    Editor’s note: This is an opinion piece meant to satirize Hillary Clinton’s alleged money troubles.

    @campusreform Are college minorities who fought so hard to gain access to universities now requesting their own segregation? Preposterous!
