Bill Clinton is really grasping at straws to salvage Hillary's campaign. I mean, is he serious in making this comparison? Sanders also donated his payments to charuty in 2013

"The aging and raging ex-president, meanwhile, speaking to a half-filled gym in a New Hampshire school, ranted about Sanders’s “hypocrisy” in condemning his wife’s paid speeches. Sanders, too, has given paid speeches, Bill Clinton claimed.

He’s got a point. In 2013, for example, Sanders made all of $1,500, which he donated to charity as required by federal law. In 2014, he raked in $1,850 for paid speeches. By contrast, Clinton made, and kept, over $21 million during the same time period. Sanders was only reimbursed for coach class airfare, while Clinton demanded private jets. Sanders’s hosts were the TV show “Real Time with Bill Maher,” Avalon Publishing and a machinists union. Clinton’s were Goldman Sachs, the big banks and the pharmaceutical and energy industries. What hypocrisy for Sanders to use that as an issue!"

Each day that goes by, my hate for Hilary grows larger and larger.... I'm really at that point that if she ever won any election, I would have to seriously consider leaving this country.. Because I don't see how anyone can blindly support this lady, while ignoring all the BS between her and her husband... Career politicians who only care about their agenda, the agenda of the people they protect (wall street) and getting wealthy at all costs...

Bernie made practically nothing and gave it away.. Hilary makes tens of millions without batting a eye... Billy boy needs to shut up, but if he really wants to attack Bernie here, Bernie should welcome the challenge and say "lets lay it all out there... and lets compare/contrast"... Hilary and Bill would NEVER want that...

Geez, ALL this stuff just makes me think that Bernie is actually honest. It rankles me to describe a politician like that, but if there was ANYTHING untoward or worrying in Bernie's past it would have been dug up by now.

He might be too optimistic, and his plans might not work, but at least the things he says seem to be backed by his current and past actions.

It's comparing apples to oranges. Sanders made peanuts compared to Hillary. There's nothing wrong with being compensated for speeches, but asking for a 245,000 dollar speaking fee is ridiculous. She should be ashamed for even accepting that!

Again I ask, why would anyone want to run for president with all the stress and public ridicule when you're making 21 million dollars a year just on speaking fees alone? Combine that with her husband's millions, they could be sitting on a tropical island sipping on margaritas and laughing all the way to the bank!

Funny how Billy-boy wants to call Sanders "dishonest",

after everything he AND his slimeball wife have done. Lying under oath to congress, remember that? Perjury charges and impeachment (yes, he was later acquitted but he lied about the Lewinski thing under oath, not to mention whatever else was going on with Whitewater).

Hillary alone has dozens of scandals surrounding her, with focus on dishonesty and lack of integrity. What a freakin JOKE

Hillary is going to get nastier and more vicious in the upcoming weeks/months. I think Sanders supporters would do well to NOT engage in the same tactics. Hillary will try and trap Sanders and his fans by egging them on.

Hillary is determined to be POTUS, even though in 2008 we pretty much told her "no thanks". I guess she didn't get that memo.

I can't stand CLinton.

And I can't stand Sanders.

BUT doesn't Clinton have some intern to 'molest' ?

Well Democrats usually blame somebody else for what they themselves do.

Helps keep the heat off.

Everybody does that, its called "projecting," it isn't a partisan thing.

Plenty of republicans have gotten caught doing the exact things they were rallying against.

Richard Curtis: outspoken anti-gay activist that was later accused of having sex with a male prostitute.

Glenn Murphy Jr: Anti-gay advocate and president of the young republicans national federation was sentenced to six years in prison for forcing a man to accept oral sex from him at a private party for republican supporters.

Shall I mention Larry Craig?

Robert Arango, Ted Haggard...

Just trying to say hypocrisy is a universal thing, so saying "Well those (blank)s are always trying to to accuse (blank) of doing the same things they're doing" is just ridiculously partisan bullsh**.

There was a time that the threat of an investigation caused a SITTING PRESIDENT (criminal) to RESIGN. But in 2016, one actually has the GAUL to continue her run for president. And there are people who would vote for her!

Jeeeze this world is upside down..

That pic is a testament to this. Probably up late partying with pornstars the night before haha, ole Billy won't quit.

I don't blame him, he and Hillary seem to have a marriage just for show anyway, you can't tell me they actually love each other! They are emotionless puppets

Because to people of that ilk, it all goes beyond money...it's all about power and ego. Public service is about #83 on their list.

And having Chelsea up there is a joke too. She isn't even Bill's. Webster Hubbel is the father.
