Former President Bill Clinton actually argued Tuesday that freedom of speech shouldn’t be the same for a billionaire as it is for a minimum-wage worker, and suggested the Constitution should be amended.
It’s “not right” to say “the rich and poor are equally free to spend $1 billion on a secret committee on an election,” Clinton said during his appearance on CBS’ “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert.
“You know, Hillary wants to limit these…committees, like you set up four years ago. Yours was a joke, but I mean, the idea that we can have all these anonymous donors spend all this money on elections…we need to do something about that,” he said. “Even if we have to try to amend the Constitution. I mean, it’s ridiculous that the freedom of speech is the same for a billionaire as it is for a minimum-wage worker. That’s like, the great French writer Victor Hugo once said he lived in a country where the rich and poor were equally free to sleep under the bridge at night, and that’s like saying the rich and poor are equally free to spend $1 billion on a secret committee on an election. That’s not right.”
Clinton made this outrageous assertion at the 23 minute mark in the video below.
