NY Times' Calmes: Hillary's Wealthy but Not Like Romney

New York Times White House reporter Jackie Calmes argued that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is “not like Mitt Romney or George W. Bush” in a discussion on Clinton’s wealth on Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports.” 

Collins did say that Clinton’s misstatements on her wealth are “going to give the Republicans and has given them an opening” to label Clinton a hypocrite, and that Clinton’s inability to give an articulate answer on her wealth is “going to dog her.” 

Nevertheless, Collins defended Clinton, arguing, “There’s a real distinction like she said. There’s truth that she is not like Mitt Romney or George W. Bush in the sense that she wasn’t raised in privilege and has in fact, a long career of working for people who are not privileged. So there’s that big difference.”
