Washington Rumors Fly as Hillary Lists 300 Used Pantsuits on eBay
WASHINGTON — In what is being taken as a sure sign that she’s going to chase the Democratic nomination for the 2016 Presidential race, Hillary Clinton is clearing out her old wardrobe.
Hillary is selling 298 of her estimated 850 pantsuits on eBay.
While MSNBC, CNN, ABC, and the New York Times all agreed this was a solid indicator Mrs. Clinton has decided she wants to be President, Fox News’ Sean Hannity said, “I just hope it means she’s going to stop dressing like a man.”
“Direct from the largest collection of personal pantsuits in the world, you could own and wear the baby-blue linen pantsuit Hillary Clinton wore while giving birth to her daughter Chelsea in 1980,” reads the eBay ad that appeared today on the Vintage Women’s Clothing section of the popular auction and set-price website.
“Or the midnight-blue pinstriped pantsuit with matching screaming-bald-eagle broach that Hillary wore to her first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.”
“You too can now own and wear a two-piece of history.”
Syndicated gossip program TMZ reports that Mrs. Clinton has recently ordered more than 600 new pantsuits, two ballroom dresses and a Lululemon yoga sweat-suit, adding fuel to the rumors.
While politicians and political pundits argue over whether Mrs. Clinton’s wardrobe purge means absolutely anything at all, 87 of the 298 pantsuits were purchased within an hour. Each of the pantsuits listed by Hillary on eBay includes a brief history of the item such as the following example:
“FIRST PANTSUIT WORN IN PUBLIC BY ANY U.S. FIRST LADY!
This stunning oyster silk pantsuit with pearl and rhinestone embroidery was worn by Hillary on the evening of January 19, 1993, when the First Lady and President Bill Clinton danced the night away at the Presidential Inaugural Ball.
One small shrimp cocktail sauce stain on left cuff.
But It Now….Only $12,750.”
Calls to Hillary Clinton’s non-campaign office were not returned.
