Imagine how the media would howl if Donald Trump appeared alongside the Koch Brothers at a campaign stop. But here's Hillary Clinton doing an event with Warren Buffet, the second richest man in the world!
|Hillary yucks it up with Billionaire Warren Buffet in Nebraska on Monday.|
I will fight hard to end the stranglehold that the wealthy and special interests have on so much of our government...[and]work to curb the outsized influence of big money in American politicsBut Hillary is no stranger to big money. From Investor's Business Daily:
Her top donors read like a Who's Who of Wall Street, law, high tech, liberal academia and Hollywood. Morgan Stanley. Creative Artists. Latham & Watkins. Time Warner. Yale University. University of California. J.P. Morgan. Google. All make the list.As this recent event in Nebraska illustrates, you can't get much bigger on the big money side unless you are Bill Gates. I suppose he'll be endorsing Hillary next. Want to get rid of the big money in politics? Vote for Trump. He's only a minor league billionaire compared to the ones who have Hillary in their pocket!
A lot of the cash has been raised by "bundlers," powerful friends of Bill and Hillary who use their influence to bring in boatloads of money. They include Hollywood media mogul Haim Saban, billionaire J.B. Pritzker of Chicago, Las Vegas publisher Brian Greenspan and Susie Tompkins Buell, the founder of Esprit.
You know, the little people.
