If being “dead broke” means dropping $100k on a 3-week rental in the Hamptons, then I’d like to be dead broke too.

In case you aren’t aware of what I’m referring to, recall that:
Clinton told ABC’s Diane Sawyer in a June interview, “We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt.” The former first lady cited legal fees that she and her husband had to pay during his White House tenure.
Of course, this is total nonsense. The only true part about that statement is they were indeed “dead broke” compared to the oligarch level of wealth they have attained since. After all, delivering speeches to very wealthy, bailed out financial criminals pays extraordinarily well.
So what’s a dead broke couple to do? Spend six figures on a Hamptons rental naturally. From the Daily News:
Former President Bill Clinton and ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are slated to arrive in the Hamptons hamlet of Amagansett Thursday, where they’re renting a palatial home owned by private art collector Andre Nasser and his wife Lois.
The political power couple will reportedly pay a total $100,000 for the three-week stay.
That’s quite a chunk of change but pales in comparison to the $200,000 they dropped on a Sagaponack hideaway last year.
The Clintons are likely to run into a string of celebrities during their stay. Their other next-door neighbor will be their close friend, Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.
