Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer knocked Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor,” saying that the Clintons “make their own rules and take the money where they can.” (VIDEO: Krauthammer: ‘Unbelievable Arrogance’ That Clintons Thought They’d ‘Get Away With It’)
KRAUTHAMMER: I say [the Clinton Foundation Scandal] is going to have an impact on her election campaign. It’s not going to be immediate, it’s not going to be a spike, a dip spike, a negative spike in her polls. But I do think it’s going to solidify the impression people have.
Now, she comes in to this as probably the best defined — let’s say predefined candidate in memory. I mean, she has got a camp of people who believe in her no matter what. But I think what this does is it prevents a rebranding. When you have a candidate who runs and loses and he comes back or she comes back, they want to come back with a fresh slate. Nixon loses in 1960, he comes back in 1968 and he is literally called ‘the new Nixon.’
Now, you can’t have ‘the new Hillary,’ but they wanted to rebrand her. That gets totally wiped away and who she is and what she is now redefined as the way she was. These are people who live on the edge, they make their own rules and they take the money where they can. Remember, when they left the White House, they took about $180,000 worth of stuff, of which they had to return about $120,000. That’s pretty crass, and that’s the level we’re at now with all of the money the Foundation has taken.
