Musings of the WxToad
Trust me - The WxToad does NOT lean to the left!
17 Aug 14: Just a couple of months ago Hillary Clinton was trying to tell us that she and Bill are just ordinary poor folks like most of us. Of course we then learn about the $100 million they have amassed in the past 8 years - wish I were that poor! But Hillary is showing her true colors when it comes to ger speaking engagements; she is definitely playing the role of diva and queen. Here's a great example in a report in the Las Vegas Review-Journal newspaper: She is scheduled to give a speech at the University of Nevada - Las Vegas in October for a fee of $225,000. But that's only the beginning - among her demands:
A presidential suite in a hotel of her choosing.
Five other rooms reserved for her travel aides and advance staff.
A private jet for transportation — only a $39 million, 16-passenger Gulfstream G450 or larger will do.
She will remain at the event no longer than 90 minutes; will pose for no more than 50 photos with no more than 100 people; and won’t allow any press coverage or video- or audio-taping of her speech.
The only record allowed will be made by a stenographer whose transcription will be given only to Clinton. The stenographer’s $1,250 bill, however, will go to the UNLV Foundation.
The foundation is prohibited from advertising the event on radio, TV or billboards. Mail and website ads are allowed, although Clinton staffers must approve in writing any promotional material.
Clinton’s contract allows her to invite up to 20 guests, including her staff, and have them sit together to be able to join the photo line. None of the photos can be made public.
Clinton has final approval of all moderators or introducers.
If she thinks she deserves such royal treatment now, even though she's not even officially a candidate, I can only imagine how she will expect the US taxpayers to cater to her royal tastes if she makes it to the White House.
