Hillary-2 600x300

PALM BEACH, Florida – Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has received more than $21 million in just two years for giving speeches to large banks and corporations, and that could be the key factor in her potential political plunge, according to talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh.

“I think this is shocking,” Limbaugh declared on his Monday broadcast, citing a New York Post report on Sunday documenting the massive amount of money the former secretary of state raked in.

“I’m telling you, folks: $21 million over two years for 20 or 25 minutes? There’s nothing that screeches ‘out of touch’ more than that,” he said.

“I don’t think you’re gonna see this story in the New York Times or the Washington Post. I don’t think any of the nightly newscasts are gonna make a big deal of it. It’s gonna be the kind of thing that, if she loses, in their postmortems they’re gonna go back to and say, ‘You know what? We missed this when this happened, but the exit polling will show it, that people thought she was inexorably tied to corporate America.'”

Ninety percent of readers at Amazon.com are giving this explosive new book a FIVE STAR REVIEW. Don’t miss the book that is going to shape the 2016 election and which blows the lid once and for all off the Clintons’ culture of corruption. “Hillary: The Other Woman,” the incredible true story of Dolly Kyle, “Billy” Clinton’s childhood friend and ex-girlfriend. Don’t miss it!

The Post reported that from April 2013 to March 2015, Mrs. Clinton “collected $21,667,000 in ‘speaking fees,’ not to mention the cool $5 mil she corralled as an advance for her 2014 flop book, ‘Hard Choices.’ Throw in the additional $26,630,000 her ex-president husband hoovered up in personal-appearance ‘honoraria,’ and the nation can breathe a collective sigh of relief that the former first couple – who, according to Hillary, were ‘dead broke’ when they left the White House in 2001 with some of the furniture in tow – can finally make ends meet.”

Limbaugh noted that in recent years, many leftists in the U.S. have been voicing nothing but hatred for banks and large corporations, and that attitude cannot help Hillary politically:

You know how much they hate corporate America on the mainstream left, and the reason is the Democrat Party has made corporate America its number one enemies list. The Democrat Party, for as long as I’ve been alive, has been targeting “Big” this and “Big” that, and they have been drumming up hatred and suspicion and revulsion for all of these big corporations. That’s why Citizens United is so despised. That’s why you have leftists running around saying, “Corporations are not people!”

They hate them. Here’s Hillary Clinton: $21 million in two years. These Democrat voters? No way. Ten to 12 of ’em combined are never gonna earn $21 million in their lifetimes. And they’re gonna ask, “What is she doing that’s worth all that? I’ve seen her speak. I wouldn’t pay 10 cents for it. What?” People are gonna ask all these kinds of logical questions, and they’re gonna see all the banks. They hate the banks every bit as much as they hate corporations. They despise the banks. I mean, Occupy Wall Street was drummed up because of the banks. They hate ’em, folks. I mean, really hate. Not just dislike.

A caller to Limbaugh’s show, a recent graduate from the University of Connecticut, affirmed the host’s position. He explained that during his commencement May 8, a speaker suggested there could be a Mrs. Clinton in the White House soon.

“The whole crowd, the whole gymnasium – Gampel Pavilion at the University of Connecticut – blew up, erupted in boos. It was the craziest thing. I couldn’t believe it happened,” the caller, Michael from Glastonbury, Connecticut, said.

“The whole crowd booed,” he continued. “I have a video of it on my Twitter page. I put it up; it got over a thousand retweets. The amount of messages I got … The whole place – student section and people watching – just erupted and booed. It was insane. … It only surprised me because it’s Connecticut, and the University of Connecticut. We’re by no means a conservative school.”
