That’s quite a family business they got going there.
Chelsea Clinton made a brief appearance at the University of Missouri-Kansas City in February 2014 and billed the school $65,000. The money went to the Clinton Foundation.
What’s with these universities? How many kids could they have given a scholarship to instead of hearing Chelsea talk about nothing, since she knows nothing in particular and has done nothing in particular.
According to the Washington Post:
More than 500 pages of e-mails, contracts and other internal documents obtained by The Washington Post from the university under Missouri public record laws detail the school’s long courtship of the Clintons. They also show the meticulous efforts by Chelsea Clinton’s image-makers to exert tight control over the visit, ranging from close editing of marketing materials and the introductory remarks of a high school student to limits on the amount of time she spent on campus.
The schedule she negotiated called for her to speak for 10 minutes, participate in a 20-minute, moderated question-and-answer session and spend a half-hour posing for pictures with VIPs offstage.
As with Hillary Clinton’s paid speeches at universities, Chelsea Clinton made no personal income from the appearance, her spokesman said, and directed her fee to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation.
More $1,000 per minute, just to be in the presence of someone famous.
