Bill Clinton: Chelsea's Multi-Million Dollar Wedding Was My "Economic Stimulus" (VIDEO)

Bill Clinton: Chelsea's Multi-Million Dollar Wedding Was My 'Economic Stimulus'Former President Bill Clinton was the guest on 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central). During his appearance, Pres. Clinton discussed his daughter's extremely lavish wedding -- which took place this past summer. Estimates for the cost of the marriage ceremony were between $3 and $5 million. The price tag for Chelsea Clinton's wedding cake alone was around $11,000, and about $500,000 was spent on flowers. Wow.

Pres. Clinton called the ceremony his "contribution to the economic stimulus," adding that he was surprised "the unemployment rate didn't drop" after the marriage took place. On a more serious note, the former President said the wedding was a major passage in his life, and that it made him feel like Chelsea was fully grown up.

Jon Stewart congratulated former Pres. Clinton, and said that he would have RSVPed for the event, except for the minor part where he wasn't "actually invited." Aw! Don't feel too bad, Jon. President Obama wasn't invited either. Still, it would have been nice to get to go, just to see what an eleven thousand dollar cake actually looks like.

Since all of you whiners think you know so much, why don't you run for public office? It would be interesting to see what you would accomplish.You have the right to complain, but do you have any solutions?

Wow, Esther. I never heard that phrase before. How many people out there would like to live on $500,000.00 like "everyone else"? What did you do to earn $500,000.00 a year for life? No, President Clinton never served in Congress. He was the Gov of Arkansas for several years before becoming President. Pres G W Bush was Gov of Texas and convicted many to their death in their prison system. That's why he had no hesitation sending thousands of innocent Americans and Iraqi's to their deaths in an illegal war.

For Paul S. Look up Jenna Bush's wedding that also went for over 5 million, you idiot. Also look up the weddings that were held in the White House for L B Johnson's daughter (Dem), Gerald Ford's daughter (Rep), and Richard Nixon's daughter (Rep). Now those weddings were really paid for by the American tax payer. Noone said anything about them. Of course that was a more same time in our history. People had manners and respect. Today there is very little of that shown to anyone.

Yes Esther, they will abolish the IRS. They will also renew the tax cuts for the 2% most wealthy Americans (even tho it won't be paid for & will raise the national debt another 700 Billion) and they will also do away with Medicare, Medicaid and the social security you have hopefully been contributing to for most of your life. That is if you have a legal job. You people only listen to half of what these nuts are telling you. You better do your homework and listen to all of their platform. If they have one that is.

The women he marries or date only do it for the money and the fame. Personally I wouldn't want that kind of fame but there are some bimbos out there that will do anything for the almighty buck. Even associate with a dope addict like Rush.

Not really. Rush earned his money feeding hatred around the country on his radio show. He takes advantage of the ignorant masses that listen to him. He looks like an ape but doesn't have the manners of one. How many women has he been through? Well, you can believe noone would ever love let alone sleep with that pig. He just keeps getting richer and richer because the bigots and hate mongers and illiterate listen to him.

Why are you criticizing Maureen's comments? She didn't capitalize but otherwise her grammar and spelling were fine. Maybe it is because your's was not. When you talk about money spent on Chelsea's wedding, why not talk about Jenna Bush's? Even though it was held on the Crawford ranch in Texas, they spent over 5 million. They had a gigantic Texas cross erected that cost a million alone. Talk about a criminal in office. Don't forget the war crimes GW Bush committd. He is the one who should be in jail. He also is making money from doing comedy sketches around the country. He also has a book coming out day before Nov election. If you had been President, good or bad, you would do the same. Seize the opportunity is what they all do. Clinton never murdered anyone. It was just a part of the millions the Republican congress spent trying to convict him of something. They spent millions of our money and never proved anything except he let some bimbo perform oral sex on him and lied to the Grand Jury about his affair. If he had been Bush he would not have even testified. He would have declared Executive Privilege like all his cohorts did. I sure wish Clinton was still President. We would not have gone to war, would not be broke, would still be loved around the war. The 8 years of the Bush administration wrecked havoc on this country that will take many many years to recover from. Put the blame where it belongs.

Clinton.......that paragon of liberal morality//// it would seem to be more of a Newt morality though not a Vitter morality who had to pay for his excess not at home sex.

Its funny when a liberal democrat spends that kind of jack its a really cool thing, stimulates the economy, blah blah blah.But if this would have been a conservative republican he would have been critized
for the "excess" and it would have be "over the top".
What a double standard.....Hey Bill do you know how many hungy children you could feed for 5 million ????
