Totally ‘In Touch’ Bill Clinton Laughs About Buying 14 Fancy Swiss Watches

He just can’t help himself.

One day after Bill Clinton insisted his family’s wealth doesn’t make him or Hillary “out of touch” with regular people’s economic reality, the former president found himself happily recounting the 14 expensive Swiss watches and “two rugs” he bought to hand out to friends.

Clinton spoke at a Denver meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative on Wednesday, where the moderator asked him about a visit he paid in April to a Detroit-area watchmaker selling ritzy Swiss watches for $550 a pop.

“I don’t know how many you bought, Mr. President,” the moderator asked with a grin. “20, 30 of these watches? Whatever it was?”

“My group did,” Clinton replied. “I bought 14 of them that month.”

“Oh, you really did?!” the surprised moderator replied.

“Yeah, and two different rugs,” Clinton smiled. “I bought five at Christmas and nine when I was there, and I just give ‘em away and hope I make you more customers.”

“Heh,” the moderator replied, looking uncomfortably at the audience. “I had no idea, I thought I was just pulling his leg.”

It’s unclear whether the Clintons hand out the fancy watches while mingling with regular folks at their local grocery store — an activity he claimed he and Hillary routinely indulge in during a “Meet The Press” interview on Tuesday (RELATED: Bill And Hillary Still Touch).

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
