Latest Clinton gaffe: Multi-millionaire Chelsea doesn't care about money

In the wake of Hillary Clinton recently claiming when she and husband Bill left the White House in 2001 that they were "flat broke," the former First Couple's only child is now raising more than a few working class eyebrows. As reported by the New York Daily News on June 23, 2014, Chelsea Clinton is claiming she really couldn't care about having money.

Coming off a recent part-time job with NBC News as a "special correspondent," the former First Daughter's impressive $600,000 a year was well beyond what the average part-timer happens to pull in. Nonetheless, the expectant first-time mom claimed "I was curious if I could care about (money) on some fundamental level, and I couldn't."

As cited, the younger Clinton "gave up lucrative gigs to join her family’s philanthropic foundation." What wasn't cited is that CelebrityNetWorth.com estimates that Chelsea Clinton is personally worth at least $15 million. Neither was it cited that her new husband, investment banker Marc Mezvinsky, is also cited by CelebrityNetWorth.com as being worth a cool $15 million himself.

As noted, the Clintons new son-in-law earned his mountains of money working for the favorite punching bag of the Occupy Movement, Goldman Sachs. Residing in New York's tony Gramercy Park, the Big Apple's newest power couple recently purchased at $10.5 million condominium.

Rankled at being referred to as a boomerang kid, Clinton saw quoted, "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."

With many of the opinion that Bill and Hillary's best earning years possibly ahead of them, few dismiss that the $100 million Clinton fortune will not only grow by leaps and bounds, but a healthy chunk will end up being left to their only child.
