The rock star has landed and there is no evidence that his out-of-control spending spree is going to end anytime soon.
The guy spent like mad when he was in office, now he’s going to be spending even more money he doesn’t deserve.
There’s only one bright spot here:
Former president Barrack Hussein Obama is poised to make the Clintons very angry indeed, cutting into their lucrative cash hauls for speeches and consultancies across the globe.
Even so, can this number really be correct?
Obama arrived in Italy this week; he’ll be speaking at several different events with dignitaries and ambassadors and world leaders.
His entourage alone rivals that of Madonna and her band of toadies who scurry around her like sycophantic ferrets. And his global warming-centric speech (guess he didn’t see the latest facts) is costing Italy a pretty penny.
“Barack Obama will reportedly pocket a staggering £2.5million (€3million) today for delivering a speech to a sold-out audience in Milan as part of his lucrative post-presidential speaking tour.
The former President, who has already earned hundreds of thousands of dollars for private speeches since leaving the White House, will make his highest-paying appearance yet at the Global Food Innovation Summit today.
President Obama flew into Italy’s business capital yesterday, and according to local media headed straight for the extravagant Park Hyatt hotel, which can cost up to £7,100 (€8,400) a night.
After bringing the city to a standstill with a convoy of 14 cars, a helicopter and a 300-strong police escort, President Obama’s entourage reportedly took over two floors of the hotel.”
After his acceptance of a $400K paycheck for an insignificant speech to Wall Street bankers (which even Bernie Sanders found appalling; see above), it figures Obama would go for even MORE money.
Goes to show you, it’s not who you know, but what political party you’re affiliated with that matters.
