‘It’s a Hard Knock Life’ for ‘Poor Hillary Clinton’ According to RNC

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 13.14.17‘It’s a hard knock life’ for ‘poor’ Hillary Clinton according to a website unveiled today by the Republican National Committee. Paid for by the RNC, PoorHillaryClinton.com is a nod to the likely 2016 presidential hopeful’s comments that she and husband Bill Clinton were ‘dead broke’ after leaving the White House in 2000.

The Tumblr of sorts includes links to news hits which reference the Clinton’s wealth, raking in $275,000 for speaking fees and a Wall Street Journal piece likely placing the former First Family in the ‘top 1% of the top 1%.’

CNN’s S.E. Cupp Being Considered to Join ‘The View’

admin-ajax.php

One of Washington’s most probable contenders is being considered by “The View” to potentially join the program, according to an industry insider.

S.E. Cupp, a regular face on CNN’s relaunch of “Crossfire,” has been approached by “View” executives.

On Monday, Meghan McCain – a conservative pundit and daughter of former presidential hopeful Sen. John McCain – will guest co-host the program, the network confirmed yesterday. McCain and Cupp are likely being considered to fill the conservative co-host role of Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who departed the program in 2013. Our gut tells us that next to Rosie, Cupp will be better at holding her own compared to McCain.

Also slated to guest co-host next week: WGN’s Ana Belaval and ABC News’ Sara Haines.

Only time will tell…
