A Washington Post report revealed that the University at Buffalo paid Hillary Clinton $275,000 to speak on their campus last year. This news lead to a full-throated mock fest from both liberal and conservative pundits on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
“I think she is substantially weakened from where she was just a couple of months ago,” GOP campaign strategist Steve Schmidt said. “I mean, she has gone from the most ecumenically admired figure in American politics and enjoyed huge support among Republicans, to 30 points in a couple of months, just by being present talking about politics. It is a remarkable fall.”
“Ex-presidents make money like this, not candidates before they run,” NBC News reporter Chuck Todd said. “I don’t think theres anybody around her that thinks about the presidency, because if they were, they wouldn’t be making these mistakes.”
Joe Scarborough said he was shocked by Hillary’s “tone deafness.”
Hillary Clinton claims that the money she makes giving speeches is donated to the Clinton Foundation. But the average voter will hear that and still “realize she got paid more in an hour than some voters get paid in four years,” Scarborough said.
“They are worth $100 million. Like, $275,000, that’s a ton of cash, unless you were worth $100 million. So why do it?” he asked.
