Former President Bill Clinton did some “retail therapy” during his visit in Paris on Monday. A magazine reports President Clinton shopped at Hermes in Paris.

People reported that the former president arrived in a “five-car convoy” to a luxury store that sells ties for close to $225 and thousand-dollar leather belts.

Clinton had the whole third floor to himself as the store closed it for him exclusively.

American taxpayers allegedly paid close to $9,000 for the cars that Clinton was driven around in during his visit.

“Just when you thought the Clintons couldn’t possibly be any more out of touch, now we learn Bill Clinton required some ‘retail therapy’ today in Paris,” wrote America Rising communications director Jeff Bechdel. “For a couple that claimed to be ‘dead broke’ just a few years ago, Bill and Hillary Clinton sure do know how to live the good life. Nothing says ‘everyday American’ like a quick shopping trip to Paris, mortgages on houses, contract demands that are pages long, and six-figure checks for hour-long speeches.”

“With this expensive shopping trip, and Bill Clinton being the largest individual purchaser of some high-priced watches, seems the ‘dead broke’ Clintons are doing just fine,” noted America Rising PAC.
