People haven’t been scolded by the Obamas enough? They’ll pay cash for MORE of it?
Seriously? PAY to hear MICHELLE’S voice again? Proof that we live in a crazy world.
Peter Shankman, founder and CEO of social media, advertising and marketing and PR technique firm The Geek Factory, represents high-profile clients such as Walt Disney World, American Express, and the U.S. Department of Defense. He told Fox Business, “No doubt [former President Obama’s] first speech could easily [command] $250k at minimum. Michelle will also see numbers around [$250K per speech] for the first year as well. Those fees probably won’t drop anytime soon, when you stop and think about it, especially if Obama continues to be vocal, as he [has] said he would.”
Fox Business noted that Bill Clinton was making slightly under $250K per speech in 2011, according to Hillary Clinton’s filings for the calendar year; his wife made roughly $235K a speech. They earned $153 million combined for speeches in the time between 2001 and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. —DailyWire
That’s not even counting the book deals.
Yikes. File this under ‘a fool and his money are soon parted’. (Unless of course, people are paying to get political access, like the Clintons did. We’ll want to pay attention to how this develops.)
I’d PERSONALLY pay cash NOT to hear them talk again.
Can’t imagine what the stuttering clown (or his angry wife) might have to say that would be worth a quarter million dollars. Although I must say that THIS is still priceless:
What do YOU think? What is their speech worth to YOU?
