‘What product were they selling?’

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s son Eric Trump questioned Friday how Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton became enormously wealthy running a charity, which has become the focus of the campaign’s allegation of pay-to-play corruption while she was secretary of state.

“The question I always ask is, what product were they selling? If we make a buck, we sold a bottle of wine or an apartment, or we sold a hotel room. What product were they selling to make $150 million,” Mr. Trump said on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.”

Host Ainsley Earhardt suggested: “Favors? The government?”

“Of course,” responded Mr. Trump, who works on the campaign for his billionaire businessman father.

“This is the leadership we have in this country. Somebody sets up a foundation. They pocket hundreds of millions of dollars. They say they came out of the White House ‘dead broke.’ Now they are worth $150 million,” he said.

Mrs. Clinton famously claimed that they were “dead broke” when they left the White House in 2001.

The Clinton Foundation raised so much money because ol'Bill was trying to pimp his wife, but when they got up close and got a good look at that witchy, ugly face, they said "listen, I'll give you five million if you never let her get too close to me again."
Bill just laughed and said "make the check out to......"
He got a BIGGER donation if she actually took her shirt off for them.
Donors started screaming, making the sign of the Cross, and a couple of them went blind.
Wrote TWO checks.
Bill then told them how to get to that private island where he and his friends go to hit on captured teen age girls.
ANOTHER check!

Keep cheering.
