(ANTIMEDIA) As a political mainstay for over two decades, Hillary Clinton has gone out of her way for years to give off the impression she is a woman of the people. In 2014, she even tried to convince the voting public the Clintons were “dead broke” after leaving the White House.
As someone who wants to give the appearance of knowing the hardships of common people, Hillary loves to bring up the topic of income inequality. In April, while giving a victory speech for her win in the New York primary, Hillary brought up that very subject — and then attempted to boast about her support among average Americans.
“I know how important it is that we get the campaign’s resources from people just like you, who go in and chip in $5, $25. I am grateful to every one of you. ”
And she said every word of it while wearing a Giorgio Armani tweed jacket that cost a hefty $12,495.
At least lie to me Hillary — don’t pretend to be a champion against inequality while wearing an article of clothing that literally costs more than a new car. You lie about everything else, so rather than flouting your riches while championing the poor (and letting your riches show through the cracks), you might as well put on a cheap suit and give this ‘populist’ deception the effort you give your other ones. In fairness, Trump does wear Brioni suits, which cost upwards of $7,000 each — but he walks around like an orange Scrooge McDuck bragging about how rich he is.
Hillary pretends to be one of us. She isn’t. She’s just a hypocrite.
