It’s a question that plagues pretty much everyone that runs for president. Are you out of touch with every day America? And it’s a really simple question really. The answer in every single case is, “Yes”. Because you don’t get to be a serious candidate for the White House without having been part of an elite group of people for a very long time. Unless you’re Barack Obama….then you get a pass on everything because we apparently wanted a black president other than Bill Clinton.
Which leads us to the question that a lot of people are asking, “Is Hillary out of touch with the American people?” Well, to hear Bill talk (which he recently did), the answer is “No!” According to Bill, he talks to “normal folks” at the grocery store every weekend in his town (which is Chappaqua, New York…median income $163,201). Now, I know Clinton came from some humble beginnings. Wrong side of the tracks beginnings would be more apt. But Hillary is a different story. She came from an affluent neighborhood in Chicago, attended good schools, went to an Ivy League school, and got a law degree. She really never was in need.
So, is Hillary “out of touch”? Well, she hasn’t driven a car in over 20 years. I don’t know the last time SHE went shopping. I’m sure Bill is down hitting on the check out girls at the Piggly Wiggly in Chappaqua, but Hillary? Probably not. They have their own chef, when they’re not eating out. Bill even has an executive chef at his presidential library in Little Rock, and he uses him frequently when he’s in the apartment up top. So, cooking isn’t something they’re well versed in. Somehow, I can’t see Hillary playing Martha Stewart and making an apple pie from scratch.
I really think that Hillary IS out of touch. She’s made so many stupid comments during her book tour that tells you she really doesn’t understand what “normal America” goes through on a day to day basis. They may have struggled as a newlywed couple for a month or two, but I’m sure her daddy always bailed them out. I’ll put it this way. Hillary’s nickname isn’t “princess” because she wears a crown. It’s because she always gets what she wants or she throws either a fit or a lamp. Spoiled? Yes, most definitely. In touch with America? I have my doubts. When was the last time Hillary Clinton had to pay bills? How about do a load of laundry, or was dishes by hand? How about wash dishes period?
