NYT: Chelsea Clinton gets $75K per speech

posted at 7:21 pm on July 9, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

One thing has become clear from Hillary Clinton’s book tour: all the struggles by the Clintons to provide multiple homes and working-class world-class education for their daughter have certainly paid off. The New York Times reports that the occasional reporter for NBC now commands a speaking fee of $75,000 an appearance, but hastens to add that the money gets donated to her parents’ foundation (via Joe Schoffstall):

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 family’s 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. Clinton’s 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 Chelsea’s speeches are unpaid.” The Harry Walker Agency, the firm that represents her parents’ engagements, handles Ms. Clinton’s 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.

It’s fair to note that the speaking circuit is a free-market system. Anyone who can get $75K for an hour of speaking and Q&A should only decline if someone else is offering more. That applies to Hillary and Bill Clinton as well. While collecting massive amounts of money for speaking fees isn’t the equivalent of working in the coal mines (or “struggling” in any sense), it’s still a legitimate income stream. Lots of politicos make money in that industry.

However, that’s where the eyebrows start going up. The NYT does a little comparison shopping, and finds a curious market tilt:

The cost to book Ms. Clinton surpasses that of speakers with longer résumés, like Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor and a potential Republican rival to Mrs. Clinton in 2016. He makes an estimated $50,000 per speech. Colin L. Powell and Madeleine K. Albright, both former secretaries of state, are also in the $50,000 range, said one person who has booked speakers but who could not discuss private contracts for attribution.

Whether or not one likes their politics, these three all have something in common: actual accomplishment and experience. Powell and Albright preceded Hillary as Secretaries of State, and Bush ran Florida as Governor for two terms. What exactly has Chelsea done to be fascinating enough to earn 50% more than either as a public speaker? Even her scant contributions at NBC News shows very little reason to believe that she’s a particularly charismatic raconteur. Those efforts got her a $600,000-a-year contract that lasted until recently, when NBC converted her contract to month-to-month.

There are a couple of explanations for this. One, it may just be that celebrity sells, but that would tend to explain the fees for Bill and Hillary more than Chelsea, who spent most of her adult life shunning the media. The combination of ridiculously high speaking fees and the inexplicable NBC News contract seems much more like an avenue for the elite to pay homage to Bill and Hillary, and for the wanna-bes and the already-powerful suck up to the elite in and around political power. There’s nothing illegal or even unethical in a formal sense about this, and Chelsea’s not the first presidential progeny to benefit from the impulse, but the gaudy levels of recompense for the amount of effort and experience just make it a lot more obvious than it otherwise would be.

It’s fair to note that the speaking circuit is a free-market system. Anyone who can get $75K for an hour of speaking and Q&A should only decline if someone else is offering more.

But should anyone be offering $75,000 to hear someone flap their gums? That’s the question worth asking.

Chelsea’s speeches “are on behalf of the Clinton Foundation, and 100 percent of the fees are remitted directly to the foundation.”

…otherwise known an a TAX SCAM that lets the clintons pocket the money without paying their FAIR SHARE. How ‘progressive.’

I’ve talked with Chelsea Clinton a few times. She acted haughty and had an overall nasty attitude.

Simply a small part of Chelsea’s commitment to fulfilling her strong calling to serve.

And the Foundation pays all her expenses. Plus she has a millionaire husband.

I’d only pay her $75,000 to go away permanently.

So the 1st Daughter “donates” the speaking fees to a “charity”, thus protecting the “income from her regular job” from higher tax rates.

Whether or not one likes their politics, these three all have something in common: actual accomplishment and experience.

Details. She is raising money for the Clinton Foundation which is a democratic party slush fund.

“In the past, the Clinton Foundation has spent millions on opulent travel and lodging for her family, financed glitzy, celebrity-fueled donor events and paid key Democratic aides who would likely play key roles in her presidential campaign,” Miller said. “For Americans to credibly believe these speaking fees are being donated to charitable endeavors, the foundation must be transparent about how and where it has spent its millions since Hillary Clinton joined last year.”

Chelsea Clinton would get money thrown at her for peeling bananas with her feet and climbing the draperies to fling poo because the people throwing that cash know it’s oiling the Clinton political machine.

“People [were] always asking me [since I was a child], ‘Do you want to go into politics?’” she tells me. “And for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as I could remember, it was no.”

She’s now willing to leave the door open a crack. “I live in a city and a state and a country where I support my elected representatives. If at some point that weren’t the case, maybe then I’d have to ask and answer the question for myself, and come to a different answer.”

Daughter doesn’t even have to pay any nasty taxes on her loot- just “donate” it to the family tax scam.

Hey, do you think she regularly donates to other charities in such large amounts? I’ll bet she gives away ALL her money since, young idealist that she is, she just can’t bring herself to care about it.

When she donates her speaking fees to the clinton charity? That money is deducted directly from her salary, as a contribution. But how are the rules of the charity written. What does she get out of it. The Tax laws are there to be exploited as only a politician can. What does she receive off the books for donating the fees. Does she get low cost loans from the Charity?. Remember the Clintons are lawyers who have a lot of shady deals. look at the big picture but don’t overlook the small details that count.
