Holy crap! Barack Obama will make 3 million Euros (which equals in today’s currency: $3,264,062.67) for one stinking speech in Milan on his presidential speaking circuit. They shouldn’t just suspend his pension for serving as President (roughly $400,000 a year), they should cut it off entirely. That is insane. Remember the two speeches he gave here in the States? Each was worth $400,000 and now this. It isn’t just lucrative… it’s obscene.
This is also surreal… Obama is staying at the Park Hyatt hotel there for 8,400 Euros a night ($9139.38). That’s far beyond elitism. He sees himself as freaking royalty. As Obama descended on the city, he brought everything to a standstill with 14 cars, a helicopter and a police escort of 300 officers. That is just over the top. His group took up two floors of the hotel all by itself. Who does he think he is? Caesar? Or maybe, Mussolini. My God… that’s not living like an ex-president, it’s living like a king.
From the Express:
BARACK Obama will reportedly pocket a staggering £2.5million (€3million) today for delivering a speech to a sold-out audience in Milan as part of his lucrative post-presidential speaking tour.
The former President, who has already earned hundreds of thousands of dollars for private speeches since leaving the White House, will make his highest-paying appearance yet at the Global Food Innovation Summit today.
President Obama flew into Italy’s business capital yesterday, and according to local media headed straight for the extravagant Park Hyatt hotel, which can cost up to £7,100 (€8,400) a night.
After bringing the city to a standstill with a convoy of 14 cars, a helicopter and a 300-strong police escort, President Obama’s entourage reportedly took over two floors of the hotel.
The former Commander-in-Chief also took a private tour of the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana museum, and the city’s cathedral.
President Obama has enjoyed weeks of holidaying since leaving Washington on January 20, including kite-surging lessons with Richard Branson.
I’m absolutely offended by this grotesque display of wealth and presence and I deal with the wealthy on a daily basis. President Obama will give his speech in Milan at Seeds and Chips, a conference on the impact that technology, innovation and climate change will have on food availability and production worldwide. After the address, he will take part in a conversation with Sam Kass, the Obamas’ White House chef who also helped run Michelle Obama’s public health campaign. That’s one chef we can do without.
Obama is not expected to discuss Donald Trump’s efforts to scrap his healthcare and climate change legislation. This month, he will also reportedly meet with former Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi for private political discussions. Now, why would he do that? Oh yeah… the United Nations. Exactly what I predicted he was angling for. Why settle for being king in America, when you can be king of the world? He’s also probably pining for more fascist leaders. And on May 25th, President Obama has planned a get together with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin. How special. They can compare notes on Russia and Islam. It should be a great time with communists, Marxists and fascists bonding.
