A laughing Joe Scarborough said, “the more you hear it, the worse it sounds,” as he ridiculed Hillary Clinton's claim that she and husband Bill were “dead broke” when they left the White House in 2001.

While the Clintons had every right to parlay their lives in public service into personal fortune, the suggestion that they were “dead broke” following the $8 million book-deal advance Hillary received before Bill left office is laughable. At least it was on the set of Morning Joe Tuesday.

For her part, Hillary doubled down on the claim Tuesday morning as well.
