Friday on MSNBC’s “The Daily Rundown,” host Chuck Todd addressed the Clinton wealth controversy that has erupted since Hillary Clinton’s book tour gaffe, in which she told ABC News’ Diane Sawyer that her family “came out of the White House not only dead broke but in debt” and that they had “no money.”
“Let’s remember how they created their wealth,” Todd said. “They didn’t do it in some incredible business creating jobs and all of this- they just acquired wealth for being the Clintons.”
Todd acknowledged it took work for former President Bill Clinton to position himself to be attractive to donors, but explained it was a different kind of hard work.
“This is not like shoveling coal, this is not like building a factory,” Todd added. “It’s not like they have acquired their wealth from hard work.”
