Bill Clinton Brags: Bought 14 Swiss Watches At A Pop

From the Daily Caller:

Totally ‘In Touch’ Bill Clinton Laughs About Buying 14 Fancy Swiss Watches

By Brendan Bordelon | June 25, 2014

… One day after Bill Clinton insisted his family’s wealth doesn’t make him or Hillary “out of touch” with regular people’s economic reality, the former president found himself happily recounting the 14 expensive Swiss watches and “two rugs” he bought to hand out to friends.

Clinton spoke at a Denver meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative on Wednesday, where the moderator asked him about a visit he paid in April to a Detroit-area watchmaker selling ritzy Swiss watches for $550 a pop.

“I don’t know how many you bought, Mr. President,” the moderator asked with a grin. “20, 30 of these watches? Whatever it was?” “My group did,” Clinton replied. “I bought 14 of them that month.”

And yet Mr. Clinton is notorious for always being hellishly late.

“Oh, you really did?!” the surprised moderator replied. “Yeah, and two different rugs,” Clinton smiled. “I bought five at Christmas and nine when I was there, and I just give ‘em away and hope I make you more customers.”

We can remember when Bill just used to give out copies of Walt Whitman’s (erotic) ‘Leaves Of Grass.’

Heh,” the moderator replied, looking uncomfortably at the audience. “I had no idea, I thought I was just pulling his leg.”

Even the fawning moderator didn’t realize how out of touch these people are.

It’s unclear whether the Clintons hand out the fancy watches while mingling with regular folks at their local grocery store — an activity he claimed he and Hillary routinely indulge in during a “Meet The Press” interview on Tuesday.

Don’t be ridiculous. None of the denizens in Chappaqua or Georgetown would be caught dead wearing a lousy $550 watch.
