Hillary Hates Wall Street

Even if she didn’t really call them “Wall Street money-grubbers” (she said “money-brokers”), the effect of Mrs. Clinton’s anti-Wall Street tirades has been the same.

Attacking Wall Street as a means for gaining support among low- and middle-income Americans was bound to happen in this election cycle…In what could be considered an illustration of this point, three Clinton aides during a conference call with reporters yesterday morning failed to deny reports that she had made the “money-grubbers” comment. When asked to square her statements with the fact many of her contributors came from Wall Street, and that her daughter Chelsea works at a hedge fund, a spokesman, Howard Wolfson, said: “Our supporters aren’t the grubbers.”
