Hillary Laughs at Mitt Using Her in Ads: "A Waste Of Money"

Details of foreign policy aside, Hillary Clinton, Madame Secretary of State, has become a truly badass cultural figure.

When asked about Mitt Romney's recent use of old primary campaign footage of her in his own ads against President Obama, she laughed and had a true "Texts from Hillary" moment, saying the President's rival was wasting his (admittedly ample supply of) dough.

From CNN:

Speaking in Jerusalem at the tail end of a two week diplomatic trip, Clinton said in an interview with CNN Foreign Affairs Reporter Elise Labott the spots were a "waste of money."

"I am out of politics, and I haven't seen any of the ads that you're talking about," Clinton said. "But I have to say it's a waste of money. Everybody knows I ran against President Obama in 2008, that's hardly news. Everybody knows we ran a hard fought campaign and he won. And I have been honored to serve as his secretary of state."

In the video below, she also talks quite seriously about the current situations in Egypt and Syria. The Mitt comments come at 4:40.

I can't wait to see the kind of stuff she says post-retirement.
