Obama makes $400K for speech at A&E event: report
By Rebecca Savransky - 04/30/17 02:14 PM EDT
Former President Barack Obama reportedly made $400,000 for an appearance and interview last week at an A&E Networks advertising event.
The former president was interviewed at The Pierre Hotel in Midtown Manhattan by presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, The New York Post reported. The History Makers event, which lasted 90 minutes, was conducted in front of the cable network's advertisers and hosted by A&E chief Nancy Dubac.
During the event, the former president was asked what he missed most about the White House and how he dealt with frustrating moments when he was president.
For starters, by not having a Twitter account, Obama reportedly quipped in response.
A source who attended told the Post that Obama said he missed sitting on the Truman Balcony of the White House in the summer and looking upon the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial.
He also told the audience about his transition back into civilian life, saying he still hasnt drive a car and is learning how to use the coffee machine in his new D.C. home.

Sounds like the HGTV thing fell through.
I miss the olden classy days of A&E.
Ditto the History Channel.
Being able to lie to millions of people every time he speaks.
To paraphrase Will Rogers - “America has the best politicians money can buy”
Those anti-capitalist Marxist/commies don’t come cheap.
This is a “feel good” story.
I “feel good” that I dropped cable years ago. So my money isn’t paying for Obloward’s fee!
That’s a pretty profitable week for him. Didn’t he just collect $400,000.00 for a Cantor Fitzgerald gig? If he really wanted to cash in big, he should open a gofundme page. A lot of people would pay him if he promised to go away....for good.
I think he hates Jews, white people and the United States and would love to destroy all of the above. I can’t believe that many black folks love him after ignoring their problems for 8 years.
...how he dealt with frustrating moments when he was president...
Choom, bath houses, selfies, golf, bassetball,
Read this and try to keep your dinner down.
“he still hasnt drive a car”
Holy moley what passes for grammar these days...
He tried to totally sabotage a Presidential candidate and as I write this, he is still trying to sabotage a sitting President. Unacceptable!
What's the latest on Spygate, Susan Rice, unmasking, etc? Haven't heard much about it lately. Multiple laws broken and crickets.
I hope the FBI and Jeff Sessions are working 24/7 to investigate him and are continuing the investigation of Hillary's email server and the Clinton Foundation.
They have to see some justice, or it will forever be a green light to the commies that they can do whatever they want. I thought Bill Clinton's pass was bad enough. If they let Hillary and Obama go, we are done. Just done.
I am so done with Obama!
We need to identify and PUNISH the organizations that pay for Obama’s BS.
If Freepers will provide the info, I will start and maintain the data base.
The deferred bribe money starts rolling in. I’m amazed that stockholders tolerate those 200K - 750K expenses.
He was given 400K for talking.
Talkers don't make nor earn anything, they get paid to talk .... THERE IS A DIFFERENCE !
