“Look, it is none of anyone’s business what someone who is a member of the private sector decides to accept in terms of compensation,” Wasserman Schultz added. “With all due respect to anyone who chooses to comment publicly on what Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, or anyone earns as a member of the private sector, it’s just MYOB.”
Instead, the Florida lawmaker said the public should focus on both politicians’ public records, which are “pristine.”
Although Wasserman Schultz has defended Obama’s speaking fee, Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts have blasted Obama for it.
