Paris Hilton vs. Hillary Clinton: One is More Honest About Her Wealth Than the Other

Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 9.53.29 AMEditor’s Note: Hillary Clinton needs to take a few lessons from Paris on honesty. No one believes you’re broke Hillary. Go sell crazy somewhere else.

When it comes to being criticized for denying your wealth privilege, it’s never a good sign to have Paris Hilton’s response considered more legitimate than your own. But that’s what happened when the Hilton heiress was asked by Vice’s Mitchell Sunderland about Hillary Clinton and her insistence of her poverty-stricken life after the White House.

VICE: “Unlike a lot of celebrities—such as Hillary Clinton, who recently said that she had been struggling for money when she left the White House—you’ve always been very upfront about being born privileged. Why is that?”

PARIS HILTON: “I’m just always honest with everything, and that is a truth. Yes, I’m very fortunate. I did come from a wealthy family, but at the same time I didn’t have to work, and I chose to. I’ve done this all on my own, so I’m very proud of that fact.”
