Excellent points. Of course, it’s worth pointing out that the Clinton Foundation doesn’t bring any financial gain to any member of the Clinton family. Nobody named Clinton or married to someone named Clinton takes a salary for their work with the Foundation, and it’s a non-profit organization. So it’s difficult to see where a donation to the Clinton Foundation is winding up in Hillary’s purse. It’s not.

This is not to be confused with the Trump business empire (which is very much a bunch of for-profit entities), where Trump and his children do in fact make money from them.

And even the Trump Foundation functions mostly as a tax-free piggy bank for Trump. Maybe that’s why the Trumpsters believe that the Clinton Foundation is where Hillary gets her wealth, instead of from speaking fees and book royalties. I think we call that projection.

Like what you read? Give Victoria Lamb Hatch a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
