Bill Clinton speeches

It is beyond comprehension that Bill Clinton could make so much money from giving speeches around the world without having any influence on politics and what Hillary did as Secretary of State. And when you find out who was paying for these ridiculously high priced speeches, it will make your blood boil.

How does over $100 million sound for just 542 "speeches" sound?

That's nearly $200,000 for each speech and one speech in particular that is raising eyebrows is one he gave in Hong Kong where he was paid $750,000 for a single speech. And he was paid that amount while Hillary was Secretary of State.

Sure, there's no illegal influence peddling going on by our elitist rulers. So what exactly did the Chinese get for that $750,000

There’s new attention being paid to the speaking fees Bill Clinton commanded since he left office, thanks to questions raised by NBC’s Cynthia McFadden in an interview with the former president.

Back in June 2014, the Post did a deep dive into Clinton’s speaking fees and reported the following:

Bill Clinton has been paid $104.9 million for 542 speeches around the world between January 2001, when he left the White House, and January 2013, when Hillary stepped down as secretary of state, according to a Washington Post review of the family’s federal financial disclosures.

Although slightly more than half of his appearances were in the United States, the majority of his speaking income, $56.3 million, came from foreign speeches, many of them in China, Japan, Canada and the United Kingdom, the Post review found.

The chart below shows all of those speeches — and how much Clinton got paid for each one. His biggest payday? He made $750,000 for a single speech in Hong Kong in November 2011. Not bad for a day’s work.
