Hillary Clinton Suffers 90% Cut In Speech Fee

After embarrassing herself and creating yet another obstacle for Congressional Democrats to overcome later this year during a disastrous trip to India earlier this month, Hillary Clinton is taking a massive 90% cut to her typical speaking fee for an engagement at one of New Jersey's most prestigious universities.

And no - it's not Princeton.


Clinton made her less-than-triumphant return to the Garden State on Thursday to deliver a talk about American democracy and her role in shaping the the American woman's place in political life, according to NJ.com.

Rutgers will pay Clinton $25,000 from one of its endowments - ensuring that no tuition money will be used for the payment.

The event will be hosted by the Rutgers Eagleton Institute of Politics and will be held at Rutgers Athletic Center in Piscataway. The event is - unsurprisingly - sold out.

Clinton famously charged $300,000 for a speech at another prestigious state school - UCLA - back in 2014, with a fee of $250,000 generally accepted as the norm.

Clinton has made three public appearances in New Jersey since her defeat in the 2016 presidential election. She campaigned for then-candidate (and now governor) Phil Murphy back in October. She also returned with her husband for another pro-Murphy event later that month.

She also traveled to Montclair for a book signing in September as part of her "What Happened" apology tour.

Listening to her...in my best screeching voice...

"At this point, what does it matter?"

She is a nobody, a has-been, a never-was. (Sure, just like me, but nobody is even offering me $2500 for my screeching.)

Because if we give you the money in the right hand its from the endowment.  If we give you the money from the left hand its for tuition.  Even though endowment money could be used to LOWER tuition.  But because some educationed smartass says so, then they aren't using tuition money.  MOAR BULLSHIT!!!

They could have given the $25,000 to some poor inner city minority for a FREE YEAR of college.  Instead, they let Hillary whine for an hour.  Another GREAT USE OF RESOURCES!!

You can rage against the system or embrace the Kleptocracy (if you can stomach it) I used to rage against the COMEX Silver manipulation, then I realized after 10 years it was a waste of time. We cannot defeat the Oligarchy, but we can profit from their purposes if played correctly (ie start a business that can get a govt contract to do some useless task that you can get paid $$$ from

When that endeavor fails, which it will, next we'll see her hunched down next to a freeway on-ramp holding a soggy cardboard sign advertising "POLITICAL ADVICE 25 cents...blowjobs 50 cents." No one will stop.

Except Bill...

Why would you pay any amount I mean anything to hear from a serial liar? She lied about Watergate, she lied about Whitewater, she lied about commodities futures, she lied about Clintoncare, she lied about Iraq, she lied about Benghazi, she lied about her private server, she lied about....  well you get the idea. By the way she lost the presidency because the top half of the class could no longer turn a blind eye.
