• Bill Clinton Has Now Done More Interviews Than Hillary Since Her Launch

    Bill Clinton has now done more news interviews than Hillary Clinton since she announced her candidacy for the 2016 Democratic nomination nearly a month ago.

    The former Secretary of State announced she would run for president via a recorded two-minute video message on Twitter Sunday April 12th and since has gone longer than any presidential candidate in modern history without appearing on a national television news network or conducting a sit down interview with national media.

    The previous record was held by former president George W. Bush who gave his first interview a mere four days after his 1999 announcement.

    Hillary has been trying so hard to avoid the national media, she has even resorted to desperate measures like pretending to talk to talk to herself while being pressed by reporters.

    Mrs. Clinton is obviously not prepared to give an honest answer to any tough questions regarding her secret email scandal or the troubling new revelations surrounding the foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation. Her husband on the other hand is a much better politician.

    Bill Clinton, during an interview that aired Monday on NBC’s “Today” show, said he has “no regrets” about taking in millions in foreign cash for the Clinton Foundation despite allegations that foreign donors of the charitable foundation got political favors from Hillary Clinton’s State Department.

    “I give 10 percent of my revenue off the top every year to the foundation and Hillary, the years she was there, gave 17,” Clinton said.

    The fees — $500,000 or more for 11 speeches while Hillary was Secretary of State — are justified, he insisted.

    “I work hard on this—I spend a couple of hours a day just doing the research—people like to hear me speak,” he said. “I don’t think there’s anything sinister in trying to get wealthy people in countries that are seriously involved in development to spend their money wisely in a way that helps poor people and lifts them up.”

    Clinton was asked if he would continue to give paid speeches while Hillary is a candidate.

    “Oh, yeah,” Clinton replied. “I got to pay our bills.”
