Hey Hillary! “What kind of genius loses a billion dollars in a single year?” Remember saying that? Well..you’re the kind of idiot who does that. The final records are in…and Hillary Clinton forked out a $1.2 BILLION futile bill. Check these numbers out:
VIA| As Matt Vespa reminds us, Hillary Clinton once offered this zinger about Donald Trump’s claims to be a business wizard: “What kind of genius loses a billion dollars in a single year?” The New York Post has the answer in their review of election-campaign financial disclosures. The final cost of Hillary’s futile bid for the presidency — including monies spent by the Democratic Party and supporting PACS — exceeded $1.2 billion.
Trump, on the other hand, turned out to be a wiser manager of finances than Hillary guessed:
Hillary Clinton and her supporters spent a record $1.2 billion for her losing presidential campaign — twice as much as the winner, Donald Trump, according to the latest records.
The president-elect, who confounded critics during the campaign by saying there was no need to raise or spend $1 billion or more, ended up making do with $600 million.
It’s easy to laugh at this now that Trump won the election, but Republicans spent most of the campaign worrying about this disparity. Trump had won the primaries on the cheap, spending very little money, but had promised to aggressively raise money for both his own campaign and the RNC once he won the nomination. He spent very little in August, creating even more angst, but the Trump campaign finally began to press the accelerator in September and October.
