Bill Clinton said at a fundraiser Wednesday night that he is enjoying working the campaign trail for his wife, Hillary Clinton, because he doesn’t have to lie anymore.
“This has been a fun campaign for me, because I never have to say anything I don’t believe,” Clinton said during remarks at a swanky New York City fundraiser for the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee that splits contributions between the campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and 33 state party committees.
In his introductory remarks, the former president, who is perhaps most famous for falsely claiming to the American people that he “did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky,” touted his wife as the greatest “change-maker” he’s ever known.
“There are some days that I wish we hadn’t been married for 40 years, because then if I showed up and said this, maybe more people would believe me,” Clinton said.
The event was held at Manhattan’s Radio City Music Hall and saw musical performances by Elton John and Katy Perry. Donors who gave at least $100,000 were bestowed the titled of “Sponsor.” That group included billionaires Diane von Furstenberg and Lynn Forester de Rothschild. “Hosts” for the event were those who gave at least $10,000.
