Skip to comments.Hillary outclassed again: How Condoleezza Rice could teach her a thing or two about charity

A 2014 speech by Hillary Clinton to the Boys and Girls Club of Long Beach shows the stark difference between the former secretary of state and the woman who preceded her, Condoleezza Rice. When Rice gave a speech at the annual luncheon for the charity in 2009, she collected a $60,000 speaking fee, and donated almost all of that fee back to the club. Hillary naturally was not as generous. She charged $200,000 and donated the entire fee to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton foundation. The cost to the Boys and Girls Club which has an annual budget of less than $3 million was blasted by some organizers of the event, according to Politico. A Boys and Girls Club organizer who helped plan Clintons 2014 appearance said the arrangement felt more like a pay-to-play type thing. With Hillary, it was more businesslike, said the volunteer. Between her speaking fee, and the fact that her entourage took up a large portion of the available seating, the charity was only able to raise a mere $106,000 at the lunchtime event a 25-year low for the organization. What did Gowdy get out of Blumenthal about Hillary? Supporters of the Boys and Girls Club also told Politico that they were disappointed by Clintons decision not to socialize with any of the youth that the charity focuses on helping. Rices 2009 appearance, by contrast, made a very different impression. Rice spent the morning before her speech touring the facility and talking with children in the club about the importance of staying in school. Her modest speaking fee, and the fact that she donated it back to the organization, also helped the charity raise more than $250,000 during the luncheon.

Paragraphs are our friends.
NO ONE should give another penny to the Boys Club until those responsible for this outrage of speaking fees is removed from its organization.
“...and the fact that [Hillary’s!] entourage took up a large portion of the available seating...”
Headline: Hillary Speaks to Packed House!
How I loathe this beotch. Just. Go. Away.
It’s a terrible loss for this country that Rice won’t run for office. She is just TOO smart.
On top of taking up all the seats, so the club couldn’t raise money, she ‘donated’ the speaking fee money to a charity so she got a tax break for the 200k, and the charity she donated it to was her own, so she got the money, anyway!
The Clinton Crime Family keeps on taking. They are the lowest of the low. Lower than whale crap at the bottom of the Mariana trench.
Of course she did! It’s The American Political Left Way of doing ‘business.’
Agreed. Why put yourself through the political meat grinder?
Rice knows that the future of any nation, lies in their children.
Clinton knows that the future of her, is continued stealing and lying to the nation, and their children.
Teach Hillary a lesson about charity?
Forget it, she’s not interested in learning.
Ofcourse Hillary is outclassed.
She is trailer trash.
Democrats are evil.
“She is trailer trash.”
That’s unfair to trailer trash.
Impossible since Hillary has never had any class.
She is an Obama voter no thank you
at least she has integrity
