Chelsea Clinton was named to the board of Expedia you know, because all of her experience in the technology and cybersecurity field.
In her newly named position, Mrs. Clinton will get $45,000 a year in cash, plus $250,000 a year in stock vesting over three years. What Mrs. Clintons responsibilities will be at the online travel-booking company is unclear the companys financial filings dont detail.
Expedias chairman, billionaire Barry Diller, is a longtime Clinton ally and prolific fundraiser for the political family. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Mr. Diller and his wife Diane von Furstenberg hosted a Conversation and Dinner with Hillary Clinton, with tickets priced at $100,000 per couple.
Mr. Diller has collected 54 percent of Expedias voting shares, so hes single-handedly able to alter its board from 13 to 14 people to accommodate the younger Clinton. And hes done it before.
Mr. Diller is also chairman of IAC Interactive, and invited Chelsea to sit on its board four years ago. In that position, Mrs. Clinton earns $50,000 in cash a year, and $249,936 in stock.
Chelsea started her career working for management consulting firm McKinsey & Company and investment firm Avenue Capital Group. She ditched those jobs for a cozy $600,000 a year gig reporting for NBC News, where she conducted hard-hitting interviews with the likes of Geicos gecko.

Won’t be ever using Expedia’s service again.
She’s her mother’s daughter, all right. No shame.
When these kinds of things aren’t thinly disguised bribes, they are thinly disguised money laundering.
If the Clintons still had power, I would suggest the former. If they didn’t, I would suggest the latter.
Access to corruption doesn’t come cheap. I guess this is proof that the Clintons are still up to their necks in some or other lucrative criminal enterprise.
Democrats are praying for some devine intervention so we can somehow have a nationwide election in 2018.
"Heres to Mrs. Clinton taking advantage of her namesake. It would almost be unnatural for her not to."
She’s what I call gifted. She’s gifted with this. She’s gifted with that. She’ll be gifted a lot more in life.
This isn’t race related or gender related. It’s just because...
All this ignored her role at the family foundation (cough cough). Things are winding down there now that the gig is up.
How many interviews did Chelsea do for $600,000 dollars per year?
What’s her going rate, $100,000 an hour? That seems to be only half what her parents get, and to hear what? Them regurgitate things most of us know to be completely false.
Chelsea isn’t worth $10.00 an hour, if I’m payin.
Will not be using Expedia or any of their companies. Although I might still use Exlax.
This really bothers me. With all her real-life experience, Chelsea Clinton should have been appointed Chairwoman of the Board. Yet they only offered her a seat. This is sexism at its worst!
PSA: DVF perfume smells like cat piss.
It’s not as insanely generous as NBC was when it paid her $600,000 for two TV specials that were dreadful. That was real money.
And not using Expedia anymore for my business or anything travel arrangements. App deleted!
Interesting how he made room for her right after rumors began surfacing that she may run for Senate?? (unbelievable?!) and/or her mom is considerig a mayoral run.
Is this news?
Sorry, but the dumb beeyotch couldn’t dump water out of a boot with instructions on the heel. What the heck is Expedia thinking? She’s worthless as boobs on a bull, for crying out loud.
Money for Nuthin
Daddy’s little Princess Silverspoon. Expedia must be run by morons.
Can you imagine what you could do with 100 grand? A "Coversation and Dinner with Hillary Clintoonie" would definitely be at the bottom of my list.
Chelsea’s title of address is Mrs. Mezvinskey, not sure of the spelling. Her mother’s title of address is Mrs. Clinton.
