Hypocrite Hillary Clinton delivered a speech on income inequality earlier this campaign season while sporting a jacket that cost nearly $13,000.
The disconnect from reality is really quite stunning. Not as stunning as the sticker price on her clothing, but stunning nonetheless.
Following her primary victory in New York, Clinton spoke to her supporters about income inequality and other economic issues while wearing a $12,495 Giorgio Armani jacket.
That must be what they mean when they talk about ‘New York values.’
“We all know many people who are still hurting,” Clinton told a gullible crowd. “I see it everywhere I go.”
That is, with the exception of her own mirror.
Via the Free Beacon:
Hillary Clinton wore a jacket that costs more than $12,000 when she discussed income inequality and other economic issues following her victory in the New York primary earlier this year.
According to the New York Post, Clinton sported the $12,495 Giorgio Armani jacket when delivering remarks in New York City in April after defeating competitor Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) in her home-state primary.
The price of the jacket constitutes roughly 40 percent of what the average American worker makes in a year. According to the most recent data provided by the U.S. Census Bureau, the median income for U.S. workers in 2014 was $30,815.
While wearing the Armani jacket, Clinton emphasized her commitment to a “progressive” agenda, lamenting economic inequality and promising to raise wages and create jobs should she win the presidency.
A political image consultant claims that Hillary has spent a minimum of $200,000 on clothes for the campaign trail.
While most Americans could only dream of amassing $200,000 over many years, let alone in one sitting, Clinton typically makes that by delivering one 30-minute speech.
For a speech at the State University of New York in Buffalo for example, the former First Lady was paid $275,000.
As in the ‘jacket’ speech, Clinton displayed no concerns about optics, giving her $275,000 speech to college students who were facing tuition hikes.
Not bad for a woman who claimed she and her husband were “dead broke” coming out of the White House.
