FLASHBACK: Millionaire Chelsea Clinton Claims SHE DOESN’T CARE ABOUT MONEY
For a Clinton, life is just grand. You get to reap the benefits of being a millionaire without truly earning the money yourself because it’s always off the taxpayer’s dime. Chelsea once tried to tell us that she didn’t care about all the cash.
Hillary Clinton insists she isn’t “well-off” and now daughter Chelsea says she couldn’t care less about money.
“I was curious if I could care about (money) on some fundamental level, and I couldn’t,” she told UK’s The Telegraph, explaining why she gave up lucrative gigs to join her family’s philanthropic foundation.
Comparing her experience to the average millennial, the 34-year-old former first daughter defended jumping around to different careers — from consulting to a hedge fund to academia to journalism — before finding her true calling working with her parents.
“It is frustrating, because who wants to grow up and follow their parents? I’ve tried really hard to care about things that were very different from my parents … it’s a funny thing to realize I feel called to this work, both as a daughter and also as someone who believes I have contributions to make,” she continued about her reluctant status as a boomerang kid.
The Clinton name likely opened doors for the political heiress, including an eye-popping $600,000 annual salary for an irregular stint as an NBC special correspondent, but Chelsea insists her work speaks for itself.
Of course, Chelsea says all of this while sitting in her $10 million New York apartment following her $3 million wedding and earning a $600,000 salary from NBC News for some unknown reason.
Yeah Chelsea, it must be nice to not care about money.
