A statement like this ‘not well off’ one can be evaluated as literally true or relatively true, and unfortunately for Hillary, it’s neither.
This bit of absurdity is cheap laughs for those inclined. So I’m laughing cheaply, to a point. But the pertinent mystery is, why is this her answer to this line of inquiry? Ostensibly, Democrats are not against earned wealth and good fortune, provided the appropriate taxes are then paid. So the correct answer should be, we did very well and we’re grateful, and we met all our tax obligations. Not, we didn’t really earn very much.
So why is she mouthing this absurdity, which is damaging, rather than the truth, which is not?
