MSNBC’s Wagner: Hard For Clintons To Be Progressive While Making Big Bucks

MSNBC host Alex Wagner expressed confusion as to how Hillary Clinton could campaign as an anti-income inequality progressive while Bill Clinton makes thousands of dollars giving speeches on Monday’s “NOW.”

Wagner said, “I don’t really understand how Hillary Clinton can be marching forward with a reform — a progressive reform agenda, that tackles income inequality as a sort of central tenant, while Bill Clinton is having very splashy — events around the world with big dollar donors. … I just think it dramatically complicates the optics of this. And that may be surface, but it’s also going to dog her throughout the year and next year if it continues.”
