Many Twitter users did not believe her, considering how she makes $200,000 when speaking in public and got an $8 million advance for selling Simon & Schuster her book about her time as first lady. The Clintons left the White House just over a month after she received the book advance. As U.S. Senator, she earned $186,600 a year while Bill Clinton earned $200,000 in pension. Bill also had a book deal worth around $10 million. Twitter users then came up with the sarcastic hashtag #HillaryIsSoPoor to talk about her lies and how corruption engulfs several politicians in America. Some also shared how Hillary spent a lot on expensive items and lived in luxury. There was a photo of her dogs fine dining and Chelsea Clintons wedding which supposedly cost between three and five million dollars.
