Klayman: Obama's $400K Wall Street Payday Par for the Course

400K for Clintons protege Obama Affair of the year

400K for Clintons protege Obama Affair of the year

Not that Obama is the first former president to cash in.

The network said former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's fee for speaking at a private business was roughly half of Obama's.

And according to the sources, Obama will be paid $400,000 to be the keynote speaker for one day at the event hosted by the company.

Obama will appear at Cantor Fitzgerald LP's healthcare conference in September, Fox Business Network first reported Monday. Obama's speaking fee will be $400,000, which is nearly double what Hillary Clinton earned from private businesses to give speeches. In his final press conference as president, Obama revealed one plan for 2017 "I want to do some writing".

Barack Obama is in an excellent position to disprove that "mainstream politics is just a moneymaking hustle", but he's off to a disgusting start, accepting $400,000 from bond firm Cantor Fitzgerald to speak at a health care conference.

Yet, with 48% of the vote, he nearly seized what has been safe Republican territory since the 1970s. Republican runoff candidate Karen Handel didn't mention him in her speech on Tuesday night.

"Is there an irony here because he spoke incessantly about the income gap and is now earning from those same people he criticized?"

The New York Post says Mr Obama's speech makes him "Wall Street's newest fat cat", while Fox News said it made him a hypocrite and Vox claimed it "undermined" what he claimed to stand for as President.

"Should we expect it?"

In 2009, he told CBS: "I did not run for office to be helping out a bunch of fat cat bankers on Wall Street". Yes, we should, because all former presidents do this. Republicans and Democrats alike wanted transcripts released from three speeches she gave for $225,000. They remain popular and left the White House with high approval ratings. As President Donald Trump took office in January, the Obamas set off for a vacation, and had been enjoying their retirement ever since.
