Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton to Charge $200,000 per Speech
Posted on 02/23/2013 9:13:17 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Hillary Clinton has signed up for speaking circuit and will charge a whopping $ 200,000 per appearance, an amount more than her annual salary as the U.S. Secretary of State.
The $ 200,000-per-speech fee will be a sizable increase for 65-year-old Clinton, who made $ 186,000 annually as secretary of state before stepping down earlier this month.
"Now that she's out as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton isn't going to be hurting for money, thanks to speaking fees of more $ 200,000 per speaking appearance, according to a source familiar with the situation," Buzzfeed reported.
Clinton will be represented by the New York-based Harry Walker agency, which also represents her husband Bill Clinton, the former U.S. President.
According to CNN, Clinton gave 471 paid speeches during his 11 years as a private citizen and raked in an average of $ 1,890,000 per event - joining the speaking industry's rarefied six-figure circle occupied by Arnold Schwarzenegger, Al Gore, Dick Cheney and Sarah Palin...

If Governor Palin is getting at least $100,000 per speech she sure as heck isn't "washed-up" or irrelevant folks.
If she’d pay me $200,000 I’d consider going to hear her break wind at one of her “speeches”.
She gives Obama a run for his money when it comes tossing BS around!!!
- with armed Secret Service agents
that you pay for
Hope hillary enjoys it. She will never be President. Bet on it.
What difference does it make? :)
I wonder if she’ll be able to will her cheap self to part with some of that money and buy a suit that fits and get a decent haircut and color.
And also, how many of the same people that complained about Sarah Palin's speaking fees will say Mrs. Clinton is getting paid too much?
BTW, I'm pretty sure I already know the answer.
If she had something to say, she should have said it to Congress.
Maybe Congress should have paid her $200,000 to testify?
Shouldn’t that read ‘$200,000 per screech?’
That's $890 million!
What could this woman possibly say that’s worth more than $0.05? Seriously. Someone please explain how her opinions on anything can possibly be worth $200,000.
The amount in the article says $1,89,000. I think they meant to say $189,000.
I wouldn’t pay $1.89 to hear either of these frauds speak.
I might be willing to listen to Hillary Clinton if she paid me $189,000 to listen, but frankly, I’m not sure even that’s worth it.
Dude...Wait, what? I absolutely love that picture! Thanks!
hey, at this point what does it matter?
What! I earned that money.
Remember this golden speech written by Hellary? ehehehe
Her words are not worth 2 cents.

Bill and Hillary were going at it again, fighting tooth and nail over their favorite subject: themselves.
For $200,000 and a shot gun duct tapped to the back of my head, I would consider going to hear the Hidabeast speak.
One can only wonder if satan will allow her fees for addressing the congregants in hell.
Hillary’s story is surely as poignant as Horatio Alger’s: Get Out Of Chicago and wed the lout selected by the PRC. Move to Arkancide and be the governor’s wife, then jet up to New Yarkansas and let the idiots there elect you their senator. The Democrats had to have a communist negro this last time instead of a carpetbagging bag. So they grabbed this un-vetted phony and you lost your bid for the big time; however, secretary of state was a good concilation prize and what a job you did there. Your performance at the senate hearing was classic.
Now you don’t know what to do next, but a race for president in 2016 doesn’t seem quite right as contrary to the media, you are not the smartest and most admired woman in the world. Rather you are the most hated by millions. You do have all the attributes of a president, based on those of the current one: you are a damned liar and make a pitiful public presence. You’re ugly inside and out!
You bore! You’re a disgrace as is your husband thingy, Billy Goat.
I’d rather have a barbed-wire wedgie than sit through one of her speeches. Ditto for Obama or any other Dem pinhead.
I wouldn’t pay a dime to hear her or her husband.
- Well done -
It will be interesting to see which groups pony up this fee, which so grossly exceeds real value that it surely represents payment for something else.
We can then connect the dots to specific services Hillary rendered as SOS. Does laundering bribes through speaking fees after the fact make sale of public office legal?
I don't see what anybody could say that was worth even a fraction of that.
Lotsa suckers born every minute I guess.
At this point what does it matter...
Now, let’s see how much she likes paying her fair share to the taxman.
At that level of earnings, she should be paying somewhere around 60%-65% in total taxes, and Obama should be demanding a “more fair” share at around 85%. According to Obama, after you achieve a certain level of wealth, how much do you really need to have to live comfortably?
She should be setting the example for all the other rich people, and should be “contributing” her fair share, and then, in about 2-3 years, she could run for president again, touting her fine example of paying her fair share, before asking others to do the same.
A lot of it is trade shows, company confabs, motivational seminars, sales meetings and that type of thing. A company I worked for had Dana Carvey and Jim Belushi running the annual convention. I assume they were paid well.
Governor Palin is the only exception...
