Letter: Clinton can't identify with middle class

Gary Sargent

Super Tuesday happened and Hillary Clinton stole the show. Her “victory” speech gave new meaning to the word “hypocrisy.” The great champion of the “middle class” claims to identify with ordinary folks and nothing could be further from the truth.

Ordinary folks are not multimillionaires, nor do they go to the salon and drop $600 on a hairdo. They don’t own multiple upscale dwellings and they don’t ride around in chauffeur-driven limousines. They don’t fly around in luxurious private jets.

I wonder how many hungry kids you could feed with half her wardrobe spending? I don’t remember Clinton having much to say about the middle class until she needed a “main theme” for her presidential campaign, but maybe I just missed it.
