Clinton's Niece on Food Stamps... Liberal Compassion
This is how liberals do it: pay the government to help relatives while you rake in millions on book deals.
Macy Clinton, 18, the daughter of Bill Clinton's brother Roger, tells "Inside Edition" she needs government assistance to eat.
"It's hard because I'm a Clinton too, but I have to be on food stamps just to try to make it day by day," she said in the interview.
The teenager says Roger Clinton, who was confirmed as her father by DNA testing when she was 6, has only met her a handful of times and has given her nothing to live on. "My father told me that he would have a trust fund ready for me whenever I turned 18 for college," she said, "and I don't have any of that money."
For the time being, Macy Clinton is using a government benefits card to get free food at her local grocery store. Her mother, Martha Spivey, claims that trust fund or no trust fund, Roger owes $30,000 in back child support. She has an old voicemail message from him expressing regretful attempts to send money.
"It makes me really mad. It makes me hurt," Spivey said. "She's your child."
Currently a cosmetology student with an unspecified part-time job, Macy Clinton told "Inside Edition" she intends to live up to her family name. "I refuse to lose everything. I'm going to do it.," she said. "It's just a lot harder for me."
Now that this is Clinton family embarrassment is made public, how long before Millionaires Bill & Hillary VERY PUBLICLY give her some money? Coming Soon to the Mainstream Media!
