Well, what did the left expect? That Obama would give speeches out of the goodness of his dark heart? Don’t make me laugh. Elizabeth Warren was deeply troubled by Obama taking $400,000 to speak at Wall Street bank Cantor Fitzgerald. She’s got to be furious that Obama then immediately took a second gig paying exactly the same. Funny, Warren didn’t seem to have a problem with the Clintons doing this, but to make political hay in the socialist Democrat Party, she’s attacking Obama. I don’t think there is a sane soul out there that takes her outrage seriously here.
Meanwhile, Obama plays up being lost, afloat in the real world… he hasn’t driven a car since leaving office and he’s trying to figure out how to use their coffeemaker. And you wonder why his leadership sucked as President. He misses the view from the White House too. Again, ironic since he lives a short distance from there even now. But he’s having no trouble coordinating a revolt across the country against President Trump. Perspective y’all.
Even as President Obama faced criticism for getting $400,000 for a speech to a Wall Street bank, he pocketed the same amount of money for a second speech, The Post has learned.
Obama made another $400,000 on Thursday when he appeared at the A&E Networks advertising upfront at The Pierre Hotel. He was interviewed over 90 minutes at the Midtown Manhattan event by presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin in front of the cable network’s advertisers.
Out of office just 98 days, Obama caught some flack earlier this week when it was learned that he had agreed to speak in September at a health care event sponsored by Wall Street bank Cantor Fitzgerald.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said she was “troubled” by the big-ticket talk.
At the A&E event, Obama, who got a standing ovation when he entered the room, asked about what he missed most about the White House, said it was sitting on the Truman balcony on summer nights and gazing at the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial, a source in attendance said.
Obama’s second speech was called a History Makers lunch and was put together by A&E’s History Channel and hosted by A&E chief Nancy Dubuc. He got a standing ovation as he waltzed in. As you can envision, it was populated by sycophantic Marxists who missed Dear Leader. Goodwin asked Obama how, while president, he handled frustrating moments. She mentioned Lincoln would write angry letters and then put them in a desk and not mail them. Obama responded: “For starters, by not having a Twitter account.” Nice jab at Trump… but that Twitter account won him the presidency and left the Hildabeast in the dust, so the laughs on the left over that joke.
Attendees included a wide range of wealthy, famous communists, such as Harvey Weinstein, Anna Wintour, Bob Sauerberg, Janice Min and Penske Media CEO, Jay Penske. Looks like those ‘fat cats’ Obama raged against are a ‘fat payday’ for him now. Such is the way of Presidents and wealth benefits. Personally, I wouldn’t pay two cents to hear the collectivist. In the end the Democrats won’t fuel their anger over this… Obama is their last and only current hero, so they will offer up sacrifices to their deity and accuse the right of what they are doing once again. In John Hawkins’ New book, ‘101 Things All Young Adults Should Know’, he teaches in chapter 17 of the book, “If you want to know what a person really believes, watch their actions.” Obama’s actions say it all.
