On Thursday, former Secretary of State and two-time failed presidential candidate HRC gave her highest priced paid speech ever, effectively receving nearly $1 million from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to speak at the Women’s Leadership Forum, an annual Democrat fundraiser.
The Clintons need to get paid. They just have to get paid for all the good they have brought to the Democratic Party over the past couple of years—like a total election defeat and the fracturing of the party. Yet, even with the party reeling from their wounds—wounds Hillary had a hand in inflicting with her shoddy campaign—the lady needs that dough.
On May 24, the Clinton Foundation has a swanky event, where you can have access to the former first family, with prices range from $2,500 to $100,000 for invitations to various events, cocktail parties, and the foundation’s Annual Briefing. Hillary is building her Onward Together PAC, while Bill is about to charter a book tour; he wrote a thriller with James Patterson called “The President Is Missing.”
If you’ve ever seen the film "Killing Them Softly," which details a hitman completing an assignment for the mob, Brad Pitt ends up doing two jobs and wants to be paid accordingly. The film is set during the 2008 election. As Pitt meets with his contractor, Obama is delivering a speech, which is mocked by Pitt.
“America is not a country, it’s just a business. Now, f**king pay me,” he says as the movie closes.
This line, that mindset is very applicable to Mrs. Clinton.
