Mrs Clinton's Competition

Mr Obama learned from the best, starting in Chicago and now departed DC.

Quid pro quo collection time.

Former president Barack Obama’s speech on climate change in Italy raised €3 million ($3.26m) in ticket sales for his personal foundation, according to a report from The Times.

Having travelled to Milan in a private jet, Obama settled into a presidential suite at the Park Hyatt hotel, costing roughly €8,400 a night. Meanwhile, his entourage of security occupied two separate floors across the hotel, while his security detail required a convoy of 14 cars, a helicopter, and 300 extra police.

The event, which attracted 3500 people paying €850 a ticket, raised nearly €3 million, all of which will go to the Obama Foundation dedicated to “renewal and global progress.”

“When it comes to climate change, the hour is almost upon us,” Obama told the summit, urging the world to “set aside our parochial differences” to create a better planet for the world’s children.

“If we seize the future, there is nothing that we cannot do … I do not believe that this planet is condemned to ever-rising temperatures,” Obama said. “I believe these are problems that were caused by man and can be solved by man.”

Obama’s visit to Italy forms part of a series of speeches in which he defends his record in office and attempts to undermine the policies of the Trump administration. In an acceptance speech after receiving the John F. Kennedy “Profile in Courage” award, Obama urged lawmakers to show “political courage” to save his landmark healthcare bill known as the Affordable Care Act.

In April, Obama agreed to a $400,000 speaking fee to give a speech at the prominent Wall Street firm Cantor Fitzgerald.

Responding to the news, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), widely tipped as a Democratic presidential candidate in 2020, said she was “troubled” by the revelation, adding that money is the “snake that slithers through Washington” that “ultimately undermines democracy.”

I would use a left leaning media outlet for this news but hey, very little writing about this on such sites.

He has no point, although Trump's peeps do their best. The Trump cult has no problem with a president accused of fraud--with lawsuits pending--who brags about not paying taxes--who brags about how wealthy he is-- and the "art of the deal". The Trump supporters are strong advocates of capitalism and denigrate the poor slobs who can't rub two dimes together, but display loathing for people like Clinton and Obama who use the system AND the art of the deal.

Amazing hypocrisy, don't you think??
Thanks from Hollywood

I would agree, you are a hypocrite. You don't care what Hillary or Obama did, or are doing. Party uber alles for you people every time.

LOL, she is a hypocrite. I'm already on record as not giving a shit about how much money he earns However based on his own words his actions do indeed make him a hypocrite. But is free to take to the bank with him.

Nice way of avoiding giving an honest answer, just accuse the person asking the question of trolling and ignore the question.
Cute.

I'm just going to laugh at you He repeatedly railed against what he termed "the fat cats" (the very people who are paying him now) . He also said "I do think at a certain point you've made enough". He is worth millions now, he is a hypocrite, but so is Trump.
