As Daily Surge reported back in June, Hillary Clinton is slated to bag up to $225,000 when she speaks at a dinner for a foundation connected to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV).
Now, veteran Nevada political journalist Jon Ralston is reporting that the “Las Vegas Review Journal, which obtained Clinton’s contract with the UNLV Foundation, reports that in addition to her speaking fee of $225,000, Clinton is demanding a private jet, a presidential suite and adjoining rooms for her entourage, and Clinton refuses to mingle with the common folk.”
To that end, “We don’t have kings and queens in America, or at least we shouldn’t,” Ralston said.
“Unless you’re a mindless partisan, the details of that contract with the UNLV Foundation should disturb you. The contract reads as if Hillary is being given the, yes, royal treatment. Now it is bad enough that the UNLV Foundation folks agreed to that outrageous $225,000 fee as students struggle to make ends meet,” he added.
“We’ve been seeing increases in tuition, we’ve been asking students and families to come back to the table, and it’s time for private entities to come to the table as well,” said UNLV student body President Elias Benjelloun.
“But the contract they signed shows they were willing to agree to terms no self-respecting institution would. She wants a private jet, a presidential suite, rooms for staff, and, get this, all cell phone charges for everyone paid for. Oh, and if the $225,000 is not enough UNLV has to spring for a stenographer, and no one gets to see the transcription except — Hillary,” Ralston continued.
Blasting Hillary’s outrageous terms and conditions further, Ralston said there’s “No media coverage at all, no statements, keep the rabble out of the room. The contract also says Hillary is not — and this is in all caps — endorsing the sponsor. That is, she does not want anyone to think that she actually likes UNLV. No one can take a picture of Hillary and post it to Facebook or tweet it unless, of course, you get her agent’s permission.”
“I don’t know who should be more embarrassed, Hillary or UNLV? I only have one question: Who gets to hold her crown while she speaks?”
