Eleanor Clift Defends Hillary Clinton, Compares to FDR

During this week’s version of the syndicated public affairs show “The McLaughlin Group,” The Daily Beast’s Eleanor Clift debated that Hillary Clinton’s wealth could actually be beneficial for her.

Clift then brought up former President Franklin D. Roosevelt, arguing that he was able to do things for the “little people.”

“If she’s elected, she would probably be the richest president ever, But is this a liability? I look back at FDR, I mean, he was very wealthy. He did a lot of great things for the little people.”

“So, I think — you know, she’s got some work to do to fulfill her commitment to overcome this economic inequality that we see,” she continued, “but I think she’s well-motivated to do it, and I think her speaking fees will not hamper her in that at all.”
