Posted on 07/09/2014 9:08:49 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
There is a new Clinton paid to deliver speeches Chelsea, the former first daughter and she is commanding as much as $75,000 per appearance.
Aides stressed that while Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton often address trade groups and Wall Street bankers, Ms. Clinton, now 34, focuses on organizations whose goals are in line with the work of the familys philanthropic organization, the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation. Organizers said her star power helped sell tickets and raise money.
And unlike her parents talks, Ms. Clintons speeches are on behalf of the Clinton Foundation, and 100 percent of the fees are remitted directly to the foundation, said her spokesman, Kamyl Bazbaz, adding that the majority of Chelseas speeches are unpaid. The Harry Walker Agency, the firm that represents her parents engagements, handles Ms. Clintons talks on behalf of the family foundation.
The family speechmaking business is a lucrative one and has generated more than $100 million for her parents over the past decade as they hopscotched the globe. Their fees range from $200,000 to $700,000 per appearance, and Mr. Clinton alone earned $17 million last year giving speeches.
Ms. Clinton has avoided the controversies that have lately accompanied her mothers speeches, particularly at public universities. Mrs. Clinton, the former secretary of state and a potential presidential candidate, also donates her university fees to the family foundation, but critics have said that as taxpayer-supported institutions, the schools should put that money to better use.

But she doesn’t care about money...
What can she possibly know worth that much money?
Soon to deliver America’s favorite grandchild, William Jefferson Webster “lil bubba” Clinton-Mezvinsky.
Oh, ffs. What in earth has this little twit done in her entire privileged life to warrant speaking fees?
It’s all politics. This is one way the leftists can fund their favorite leftists with OPM.
RE: Oh, ffs. What in earth has this little twit done in her entire privileged life to warrant speaking fees?
Didn’t you notice her last name?
They're paying protection money to the Clinton Crime Family.
Once Hillary is defeated in the primaries, Chelsea's speaking fees will plummet precipitously.
Chelsea’s learning how to be a grifter on the rubber chicken circuit real early.
...Ms. Clintons speeches are on behalf of the Clinton Foundation, and 100 percent of the fees are remitted directly to the foundation,Which are then laundered into offshore accounts where they help fund the family's opulent lifestyle.
Why is Hillary "Mrs. Clinton," but Chelsea is only "Ms. Clinton?"
They're both married, right?
Is this sexism? Ageism?
I’m sure we’ll be seeing alot more of Chelsea’s ugly face in politics.
RE: Why is Hillary “Mrs. Clinton,” but Chelsea is only “Ms. Clinton?”
Try getting paid $75,00 per speech as Mrs. Mezvinsky
why would anyone care what a 34 year old woman who’s only notable accomplishment thus far in life was being born into the family of a future president?
yeah, but just about the time the “Leave Chelsea alone while she grows up” hallpass expired, she got knocked up and conveniently moves into the “Don’t be mean to the new mommy” category.
Speaking to the drones. Amazing how the left can use these pathological liars to talk to the dumbed down masses.
I have always said that Chelsea is going to be WORSE than her parents.....which sounds almost impossible!!
Wouldn't be surprised if the Clinton's started charging fees to hear the baby crying.
what can she know about anything, period.
Plus what frigen moron would pay to go see Hilary’s illegitimate child speak
You misspelled the “T”-word....
It’s really disguised campaign financing.
Shouldn’t she be paying people $75,000 to hear her?
I wonder what Amy Carter is doing these days?
She’s an “activist”
Let’s not.forget that Chelsea’s husband makes millions on wall street.
No mention of that.
I can think of a few things that might be worth that kind of money;
Why Fort Marcy Park.
Maintenance schedule of Ron Brown’s plane.
How her daddy cultivated a love of Ducks in her life.
Saw the blue dress.
Why Chinese people are so generous.
(List is unending...)
The only reason to pay her is to curry favor with her parents.
WTF could she possibly have to say?
The only thing she’s ever done is fall out of her mother.
It’s not what you know, it’s who you are related to.
You know I can see why people would be interested in hearing a speech by Bill Clinton, he was a 2 term president of the US. I can even sort of see why people would be interested in hearing a speech by Hillary. But Chelsea? Give me a break, I find it hard to believe she would have anything of value to say. Sorry Chelsea!
It is the ole recognition of name that will get her (Chelsea) elected, if that in fat happens one day in the future. God Forbid!!!
I wouldn’t give her 75 cents FOR ANYTHING. Who the hell s paying her $75K to speak and what is the payback?
“Why is Hillary “Mrs. Clinton,” but Chelsea is only “Ms. Clinton?”
of course you’re right. the young sprout trading off the family name because she doesn’t care about money. shouldn’t Chelzee be known as Mrs. Marc Mezvinsky?
Being the love child of Hillary and Webb Hubbell, whose "stepfather" was serviced in the Oval Office while pretending to be POTUS.
Apparently, the groups she speaks to, have low standards. /sarc
It amazes me that there actually is a sucker born every minute.
That anybody would pay anything to hear Bill, Hillary or Chelsea give a speech about anything is completely amazing to me.
Business people make money by creating value for other people (hence the term, “value proposition.”)
What possible value proposition do Bill, Hillary and Chelsea offer?
I guess the same kind of value proposition that Tony Soprano offered Barone Sanitation.
I wonder what annual salary she gets from the Clinton Foundation?
She makes more in one speech than most millenials will make in a year or two-—or more nowadays.
Webb Hubbell would be so proud.
The corruption is so deep in the ruling class. There really are only two solutions when it gets to this level. One is a massive brokenness and turning to Jesus.
“What can she possibly know worth that much money?
They’re paying protection money to the Clinton Crime Family.”
These payments to Bill, Hill and now Chelsea are a way to launder bribes to the KKKlinton family for protection and influence peddling. If we had a real media the amount of influence peddling money paid to Slick alone would be a major scandal.
I wonder what annual salary she gets from the Clinton Foundation?”
Maybe the foundation paid for her $10.5 million house like the paid for the house for Willy and Hitlery.
Influence peddling. Whoever pays, gets on a favorites list that is sent to Bill and Hil. If Chelsea succeeds in politics, these people will be early entries in her list of people to grant access to and do favors for.
Given what appears to be an American taste for elective dynasties, it’s only prudent to butter up the likely prospects. In China, they’re called “princelings.”
Until BJ decided to run for Prez, she went by Hillary Rodham.
One thing I LIKE about HilLIARy (wait for it, you’re going to like this one too) is how tone deaf she is on these issues and her incredible bad timing handling them.
Just about the time everyone forgot about her ridiculous $250,000 speaking fee she releases a stary about how she ‘donates’ the money to charity ...The Clinton Foundation.
Not only was that an actual WORSE response in it’s stupidiy, she released it just as the story would have been completely forgotten by the press.
And she has a habit of doing that just as a story is about to be forgotten, with some announcement that makes it worse.
Unlike Bill, who had impecible timing, she is annoying and just plain not likeable.
How is this not classified as graft and corruption?
“”being born into the family of a future president?””
Wrong. She was born into a family of first class grifters..
Have you ever seen her speak on TV? She barely opens her mouth, speaks through her teeth and has absolutely NOTHING to say. I would challenge anyone to tell me what her speeches are about...
Good grief - are people deaf, dumb and blind to the Clintons?
“”It is the ole recognition of name that will get her (Chelsea) elected, if that in fat happens one day in the future. God Forbid!!!””
And she could introduce her ex-con father in law to the whole country...that should go over big.
I just pray that she doesn’t try and give beauty tips to the audience.
I think by the time 2016 rolls around they’re going to wish they’d never mentioned the words CLINTON FOUNDATION(s) in public.. It only makes people wonder what the heck is going on and those of us with curiosity and a computer are going to go snooping for tax returns and any records available online.
Does anyone even pretend that people care about what she has to say? She's 34 years old and never had a real job. Her mother at least has some experience to back the speeches and provide insight. Chelsea is the US equivalent of Prince Charles. Giving bland, generic speeches on esoteric, feel-good humanitarian topics because she can't figure out what she wants to do with her life.
