Millionaire Chelsea Clinton Says She Doesn’t Care About Money

Chelsea Clinton says she doesn't care about money

Chelsea Clinton claims that money is not something she cares about, although she gave it a try.

Being a trust-fund baby and the daughter of famous, politically connected parents probably makes her life choices a lot easier and stress-free than those challenges that face everyday Americans, however.

As The Inquisitr previously reported, Chelsea Clinton reportedly earns about $1 million a year, which includes a hefty paycheck from what might amount to a no-show job with NBC News.

After working at a Wall Street hedge fund, Chelsea Clinton apparently followed her dream and became an executive at the Clinton Foundation, the glitzy philanthropic organization coincidentally founded by her parents, Bill and Hillary Clinton.

In an interview with Fast Company, Chelsea Clinton said in part “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. I was curious if I could care about [money] on some fundamental level, and I couldn’t. That wasn’t the metric of success that I wanted in my life…”

Chelsea is married to a hedge fund operator who was formerly a Wall Street banker, and as the Daily Mail observed, “she and her husband bought a $10.5 million apartment last spring, her 2010 wedding cost more than $3 million, and Chelsea has three degrees from exclusive universities and attended a private high school.”

Chelsea Clinton’s comments about not caring about money come as her multimillionaire mom, possible Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, stirred things up during her book tour by claiming that she and her husband were “dead broke” when they left the White House, and that they are not truly well off.

Apart from two very lucrative book deals, the former Secretary of State has cashed in on the public speaking circuit, reportedly earning about $200,000 per speech. Bill and Hillary now have a family fortune reportedly in the range of $100 million to $200 million.

Perhaps ironically, income inequality — and how to fix it — may be a component of a Clinton 2016 presidential campaign.

Over in England, wealthy politicians and their connected relatives and friends of this ilk are often referred to as “champagne socialists.” On this side of the Atlantic, the term “limousine liberals” tends to apply.

Bill Clinton tried to help his wife avoid the out-of-touch label yesterday when he claimed that “It is factually true that we were several million dollars in debt.” He added that he and Hillary are grateful for the good life they have now, and they are so in touch that they even “go to our local grocery store on the weekend.”

Are you convinced that Chelsea Clinton doesn’t care about money?

    wel then give it al away!!!! Liar like parents!!!!!!!

  2. Susan Quinn

    Like so many things–when you have plenty it becomes unimportant–Her remark is simply foolish and lacking in understanding of how important money can become when there is not enough. Also shows a lack of gratitude for the very fortunate position she is in.

  3. Paul Koester

    I suggest giving all her wealth to legitimate charities , then slugging it out in the work world with the millions of educated , intelligent women like herself .

  4. Jason Kilgore

    wow, they sometimes shop for their own food! How very poor of them! If you vote for this women, you are less than nothing!

  5. George G Grover

    What is all this talk about money from the Clintons??? Are they really trying to fool the American public into thinking they are just regular middle class people??? Or…as Obama would say…"Just folks"!!! Does Hillary really think that people believe that they were broke when they left the White House, while getting a check for 20 million dollars for her book…without one word yet written!!! Chelsea says that she doesn't care about money…because…she already has all the money she could possibly spend in her lifetime!!! They are all totally out of touch with the working American, having never worked a "real" job in their lifetimes!!! They have no idea the negative impact their ultra liberal life style and politics have wreaked on the average American worker!!!

  6. Kathy Clapper

    It's easy not to care about money when you have so much. Try being poor and then say you don't care about money.

    Me and my wife have trouble paying for meds so if you care to help call me.

    Getting a $60,000 paycheck for not doing anything…parents are worth $100 Million that we know of…I quote Alfred P Noonan…."What, Me Worry?"

  9. James Joseph

    What a farce, she's been handed everything she's ever gotten on a silver platter. Rich pukes like her make so many of us gag.

  10. Ronnie Smith

    She is like mom, like dad. Very much the politician. Has lying down to a pat.

  11. Kathleen Cox Vaughan

    To me, the great thing about being rich would be not ever having to think about money. Not that I've ever been in that position, but maybe that's what she means.

  12. Audrey Harvell McWaters

    Well there are a lot of people barely getting by and kids that are going to bed hungry every night.. so why doesn't she just give it to these poor people !!!!

  13. Erik Radcliffe

    Well, the apple certainly did not fall from the tree in this case did it? Liar, Liar Pants On Fire!!!!! Take that cash away from this spoiled little biatch and watch that attitude change quickly.

  14. Gary VanHaas

    CHELSEA DOESN'T CARE BOUT MONEY??? What a joke!!

    What a bunch of "POMPOUS MORONS" our leaders like Obama, Bill & Hillary Clinton have become! Dems and Republicans are out of touch with REALITY!!!
    How dare they lecture other countries like Russian and China when ours is a mess run by low-life greedy immoral Politicians who are Lobbyist bribed and owned by Gangster Bankers, Criminal Corporations, and Wall Street Fraudsters!!!

    Stop voting Democrats & Republicans & GET RID OF ALL THESE SCUM
    running America into the dirt!!

  15. Dick McCallson

    Her remarks are as asinine as her mother's. The tax exempt "Clinton Foundation" gives that family a huge "slush fund" to play with. She's as crooked as her parents and in-laws.

  16. Philip Scharfy

    The Establishment is worried about the mind set that is catching on. People are starting to say when did we agree too all you guys in Washington and the State Capitals to? When did we tell you to watch our every move? Listen in to our phone calls, watch out computer movement and monitor our e mails? When did we tell you to spend so much money to Police the rest of the world that we are going bankrupt from it? Who told them to rebuild Baghdad while our own country is falling apart? Who agreed to all of this? Don't Free People have to consent to allow government to go beyond the responsibilities that we authorized them to engage in? Who consented to the Federal Government telling us how to deal with our health or what health insurance is optimal for our families or weather we needed health insurance or not?? Who ever told them they could force us to do these things? Who ever told them they could frisk us or x-ray us at the airports? Who ever told them they could grope our wives and children? Who told them that we no longer want to be responsible for our own decisions and our own lives?

    Are Democrats In A Political Party Or An Organized Crime Gang?,

    what do you expect from the party that thinks it’s a good thing to be able to kill your own baby legally. You can be pretty sure that anyone or any group that is that profoundly depraved is not going to have too many qualms about racketeering! (or lying your way into office or lying while in office or betraying the american people or voter fraud or neglecting and breaking the constitution or….where do you want me to stop? the list is almost endless and completely nauseating and, in a way, terrifying. The description is that of socio paths – that will lie, cheat, steal, or kill to have power and/or money and/or notoriety. People who will stop at nothing to achieve their narcissistic goals and for whom the end ALWAYS justifies the means and for whom the sociopathic means are also a source of pleasure because socio paths LOVE sociopathy. It’s called evil. The gangsters LOVED being gangsters and killing people, etc. Democrats love all their sleaziness, as well, and have pulled nearly the entire country into it in one way or another, as is inevitable. Which founder said that our system of government (self rule) was only suitable for good people? Adams? Well, it’s not suitable for democrats- at least the modern ones.

    She and her type only care about my money so they can take it from my family and I so then they can live off it.

  23. Felix Pineda

    For someone that doesn't care I haven't heard of her turning down any monies so far. Maybe she has a just in case she needs money account.

  24. Enough Already

    Will the liberal media please stop trying to spin what Sister Hillary has said about "being broke" and being "poor". First there is Sister Hillary putting her foot in her mouth 3 times, then there is Brother Bill trying to defend her remarks and now we have a rich kid living in a $10 million apartment, who has never had to want for anything, trying to say it didn't matter. Didn't know whether to scream or throw up; decided to SCREAM !! rather than mess up my laptop.

  25. Richard McRee

    ALL rich people say they "don't worry about the money" .

  26. William Doyle

  27. Charles Amaral

    Republicons have all the money,they are shaking in there boot's of having to run against her mother lol. More Republicon Propaganda.

  28. Linda Whitlock

    It's easy not to care about money when you have it. I like the Clintons, but they seriously need to stop talking about money, being "broke", and not caring about it. Just stop!

  29. Ken Fike

    Absolutely she doesn't care about money, she is just like her corrupted parents, power, elitist status, and the ability to run her mouth and never work a day in her life is what she cares about.

  30. Lock AndLoad

    Just like mommy and daddy you can't believe a word she says!!!! D-i-c-k Morris , former political adviser to President Bill Clinton, has written an analysis of the latest Bill Clinton TV ad for his wife, presumably a candidate for President in 2016.
    If you happen to see the Bill Clinton five minute TV ad for Hillary in which he introduces the commercial by saying he wants to share some things we may not know about Hillary's background … beware, as I was there for most of their presidency and know them better than just about anyone, I offer a few corrections:
    Bill says:
    "In law school Hillary worked on legal services for the poor."
    The facts are:
    Hillary's main extra-curricular activity in law school was helping the Black Panthers on trial in Connecticut for torturing and killing a federal agent.
    She went to court every day as part of a law student monitoring committee trying to spot civil rights violations and develop grounds for appeal.
    Bill says:
    "Hillary spent a year after graduation working on a children's rights project for poor kids."
    The facts are:
    Hillary interned with Bob Truehaft , the head of the California Communist Party.
    She met Bob when he represented the Panthers and traveled all the way to San Francisco to take an internship with him.
    Bill says:
    "Hillary could have written her own job ticket, but she turned down all the lucrative job offers."
    The facts are:
    She flunked the DC bar exam, yes, flunked; it is a matter of record, and only passed the Arkansas bar.
    She had no job offers in Arkansas, none, and only got hired by the University of Arkansas Law School at Fayetteville because Bill was already teaching there.
    She did not join the prestigious Rose Law Firm until Bill became Arkansas Attorney General and was made a partner only after he was elected Arkansas Governor.
    Bill says:
    "President Carter appointed Hillary to the Legal Services Board of Directors and she became its chairman."
    The facts are:
    The appointment was in exchange for Bill's support for Carter in his 1980 primary against Ted Kennedy.
    Hillary then became chairman in a coup in which she won a majority away from Carter's choice to be chairman.
    Bill says:
    "She served on the board of the Arkansas Children's Hospital."
    The facts are:
    Yes she did. But her main board activity, not mentioned by Bill, was to sit on the Wal-Mart board of directors, for a substantial fee.
    She was silent about their labor and health care practices.
    Bill says:
    "Hillary didn't succeed at getting health care for all Americans in 1994, but she kept working at it and helped to create the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) that provides five million children with health insurance."
    The facts are:
    Hillary had nothing to do with creating CHIP.
    It was included in the budget deal between Clinton & Republican Majority Leader Senator Trent Lott.
    I know; I helped to negotiate the deal.
    The money came half from the budget deal and half from the Attorney Generals' tobacco settlement.
    Hillary had nothing to do with either source of funds.
    Bill says:
    "Hillary was the face of America all over the world."
    The facts are:
    Her visits were part of a program to get her out of town so that Bill would not appear weak by feeding stories that Hillary was running the White House.
    Her visits abroad were entirely tourism and symbolic, and there was no substantive diplomacy on any of them.
    Bill says:
    "Hillary was an excellent Senator who kept fighting for children's and women's issues."
    The facts are:
    Other than totally meaningless legislation like changing the names on courthouses and post offices, she has passed only four substantive pieces of legislation.
    One set up a national park in Puerto Rico.
    A second provided respite care for family members helping their relatives through Alzheimer's or other conditions.
    And two were routine bills to aid 911 victims and responders which were sponsored by the entire NY delegation.

    She was still living at home, otherwise she would understand you cannot have a car without any cost – and the purchase of a car. The funnies to rent a house or to purchase a house and if you purchase a house leave homeowners insurance naturally you need money to take your mortgage payments. There is nothing saying you need to pay your electric bill, gas bill, telephone bill, water and trash bill, there are other things such as clothing, food, but if you're still living at home and don't have to worry or fear of parents… They can afford to purchase a home, a condominium, a sweet and some illustrious hotel yes you don't have to be concerned about money but for the average person it is the concern especially if they don't have a rich family who will support them.

    You go out on the street and you are as many homeless people what they think about money, if people didn't donate the money to the homeless or if they weren't shelters or places that provided some type of nourishment that they wouldn't be around to be able to answer your question.
