"Dead Broke" – Meet the Clintons' $100,000 3-Week Hampton Rental

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

If being “dead broke” means dropping $100k on a 3-week rental in the Hamptons, then I’d like to be dead broke too.

In case you aren’t aware of what I’m referring to, recall that:

Clinton told ABC’s Diane Sawyer in a June interview, “We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt.” The former first lady cited legal fees that she and her husband had to pay during his White House tenure.

Of course, this is total nonsense. The only true part about that statement is they were indeed “dead broke” compared to the oligarch level of wealth they have attained since. After all, delivering speeches to very wealthy, bailed out financial criminals pays extraordinarily well. 

So what’s a dead broke couple to do? Spend six figures on a Hamptons rental naturally. From the Daily News:

Former President Bill Clinton and ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are slated to arrive in the Hamptons hamlet of Amagansett Thursday, where they’re renting a palatial home owned by private art collector Andre Nasser and his wife Lois.


The political power couple will reportedly pay a total $100,000 for the three-week stay.


That’s quite a chunk of change but pales in comparison to the $200,000 they dropped on a Sagaponack hideaway last year.


The Clintons are likely to run into a string of celebrities during their stay. Their other next-door neighbor will be their close friend, Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

The rabble need not apply. So are you Ready for Oligarchy?

Being "Dead Broke" while money appearing magically out of thin air is a national pass-time. Ask the Fed and Congress.

"If being “dead broke” means dropping $100k on a 3-week rental in the Hamptons, then I’d like to be dead broke too."


You might want to think of running for office first ... then get into that category of "dead broke" ... there are various categories of the term

Can you read what you even fucking wrote, Mike?

She said they were dead broke coming out of the White House.  That was 15 fucking years ago.  I hate the cunt as much as anyone but that was then and this is now, and to use such a stupid non-example of her hypocrisy and mendacity is just you using something cheap to pound out a column.

I am Chumbawamba.

It's her personality cult followers that have invaded 0hedge.

chumbawamba's picture

So you don't know how to read either?  You fucking dipshit.  Maybe you ought to be Mike's proofreader.

I am Chumbawamba.

NidStyles's picture

I can read just fine, but I can also remember that the Clintons have always used bad press to create devoted followers that believe in their innocence and actually think bad press is a Republican conspiracy. 


Maybe it's because I actually did learn how Political Economists think... I mean it's not like the Clintons are an unknown and their campaign strategies are not well known. This right here is the "air the dirt before anyone else can" phase to create her squeaky clean image for the next run at president.


P.S. I did it all without using Ad-Homs.

chumbawamba's picture

Re your first part: of course.

Re your second part: fuck you, queer, this is fight club!

The point is Mike Krieger is engaging in political hackery of the basest level.  This shit belongs on HuffPost or some other gay "progressive" blog.

I am Chumbawamba.

NidStyles's picture

Don't strain yourself yelling at me old man :-)



P.S. That was my point, this garbage doesn't belong on the Hedge.

chumbawamba's picture

Well, you have a round-about way of saying it god damn it!


NidStyles's picture

 All this articles does is enable Clinton's campaign strategy by creating a record of distaste and public reversion to Clinton reinforcing the concept that we are against her out of prejudice rather because she's a corrupt witch. Which goes right in line with how they ran Obama's campaign. 



Not roundabout, just thinking about 8 moves ahead of everyone else.

chumbawamba's picture

Good point, you're redeemed.  But 8 moves ahead?  Don't be arrogant.

A weekend with the Clinton's and their Hollywood Jewish buddies....oh one can dream...  Did Bill ever get the memo  that Web Hubbell is Chelsea's Father, bubble lips and all?

DaveyJones's picture

she meant "we" like nurse talk "we": "are we ready for our shot now?" "Are we feeling well?"  

They came out of the White House with the nation "dead broke"

however, as Hillary learned at a young Arkansas age, nothing a dead chicken can't fix

ROFL, don't be a hypocrite chumblez

@chumbawamba, I'm with you.  I kept looking for the part where they said this vacation took place weeks months or even within a year or two after they left he WH.  I can't stand her and I think she's very dangerous, but stories like this only make the author look stupid and biased and have the opposite of the desired effect.  Heck 15 years ago I was graduating highschool and had no money at all.  That Justin Bieber douche was practically in diapers, now the F-Stick is rolling in it.

You guys are morons. They were never dead broke.  Technically they had a cash flow problem where they had current obligations and future earnings.  This is a financial site, first, political second, so stop with they "well they were broke at one point in time."  Being broke never happened.  People were floating them loans left and right because they have and had unlimited future earnings.

random shots's picture

No. This site is now a clusterfuck first, a political site second, and a financial site maybe third or fourth.


RIP the original Tylers and Marla Singer.

The Clintons are pathological liars.  This is well known.  No point in even writing about anything they say.

thanks i had almost forgotten how much that son of a bitch disgusts me to watch.

JR's picture

Obviously, Hillary’s making these political statements to show that when they got out of the WH they hadn’t been paid for political favors (the favors started coming later). So Mike is right; and they’ve never been dead broke; and the stories at the time explained that they only were dead broke in contrast to the people they were hobnobbing with, who were ultra-millionaires and billionaires.

I'm with you chumb.  That was 30 seconds of my life I'll never get back reading that useless article.  Slow day, I guess.

The Four Horsemen of the White House

It is becoming clear that the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse depicted in the book of Revelation is symbolic of our recent US Presidents. 

The first horse is white which represents Bill Clinton who was always under the white bed sheets having sex with anything that moves.

The second horse is red which represents George W Bush who has a red nose from being a lifelong alcoholic.

The third horse is black which represents Barack Obama for obvious reasons.

The fourth and final horse is pale which is Hillary Clinton for she always looks sickly and pale, like death warmed over.

Once the fourth and final horse arrives the entire world will descend into a state of total liberalism which will usher in a world of blissful despotism....

God Help Us All!

Sorry, but Kohoutek's not scheduled to return for another 75,000 years.  You're gonna have to put that purple shroud away and keep those quarters for another day.  Now, get back to work.

I just watched these Vids of some of the Peeps that the Clintons/Dems help(ed) so much.

They're from the St. Louis suburbs. Let's send them to the Hamptons to "Party With Their Saviors"!

You are all wrong about Hillary.  She and her colleagues were discussing what to do about "Inequality in America."

dammit can we get on with it already???

I can not believe HC is going to be the next prez - cuz having a female president is just sooooooo important compared to having one that isn't the epitome of a corrupt establishment whore.

Fucking women.

NidStyles's picture

Can we not promote the Clinton personality cult here? I mean this site is about investing not political stooges. 

DeadFred's picture

LOL this site is about entertaining ourselves while we wait for the Ponzi to fail.

NidStyles's picture

That is how personality cults work, it's pathetic.

piratepiet's picture

This site is about much more than investing.  It seems to have grown into a gathering place for ( American ) political dissenters, the size and sophistication of which would be worrying to me if I were a Washington establishment figure.

And if I were a bookie and had to put a number on Hillary 's chances of becoming the next president of USA : about 5 percent ( a guess, based on my perspective from accross the pond )

PoliticalRefugeefromCalif.'s picture

I agree, she is done, otherwise why all the unflattering and contemptuous coverage lately?.. eg- those beached whale photos etc.

..time for a real authentic first woman American president from the Cherokee tribe, can't get more American than that.

it's either that or Bush (me casa y sus casa) III..

...hemlock shooters on the house.

not sure which photos you are talking about.

Well....there is 'broke' as in poor cash flow and then there is EBT 'BROKE'. Clearly Hill and Bill weren't lining up for food stamps.

Until the link between the money printers and your "representation" is severed, nothing changes.

In such a world it is not surprising that political puppets become oligarchs.

I might also suggest severing the heads of a few oligarchs, just to help make the point.

If you really want to 'make a point', I suggest we build one of these...
