They’re worth hundreds of millions of dollars. They have at least three mansions and they stay each summer in a villa that costs $50,000 a week.
But Hillary and Bill Clinton suddenly showed up on a commercial flight, flying on Delta Airlines from Ronald Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C.
They were, of course, in first class (let’s not get carried away, people). But the move is clearly designed to make Hillary more palatable to the masses as reports emerge that she is mulling yet another run for the White House.
While officials in the Trump administration are being harangued, harassed and assaulted by people in restaurants and on the street, Wired Sources notes that the Clintons were flying “commercial without threat of being attacked by conservative critics, while Trump Administration officials face harassment by violent liberals.”
While Bill took pictures with fans, Hillary, wearing sunglasses inside and decked out in a shapeless blue muumuu, stood off to the side.
Of course, some wags on the “World Wide Web” had some fun with the sighting.
One poster on Reddit wrote: “They want to give the impression they’ve gone back to normal life and, oh what’s this? She decided it’s maybe best to come out of normalcy retirement from politics to try and win the election again because of the big bad meanie in the White House.”
The PR moves comes as reports swirl she’ll run again. She barely beat Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination, and with the party going all in with socialism, Hillary is trying to seem like a woman of the people.
“Hillary Clinton has ramped her public presence and her fundraising appeals in recent weeks, leading to speculation she’s plotting her 2020 comeback and preparing for a rematch with Donald Trump.” the Daily Mail wrote.
The former presidential candidate has been appearing at high-profile events – such as for the Clinton Foundation and at Oxford University – in addition to asking for donations to causes she supports.
The New York Post notes that five times in the last month alone, Clinton let supporters know her super PAC was working against Trump.
She has stayed at the top of her supporters’ in-box, using events-of-the-day – such as her email railing against Trump’s controversial ‘zero tolerance ‘immigration policy earlier this month – to spread her message.
So keep an eye out for her in your neighborhood. Maybe she’ll drop by and mow your lawn.
