• College Refuses To Pay Hillary $275k for 10-Minute Speech, Books Chelsea For $65k Instead

    Chelsea Clinton demanded $65,000 to make a 10-minute speech at a public university after the staff realized they couldn’t afford her mother’s outrageous appearance fee.

    The University of Missouri at Kansas City was looking for a celebrity to open their women’s hall of fame in February 2014.

    Their initial choice was former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, until they were told it would cost $275,000.

    They then went to what they thought was the next best thing and paid her daughter Chelsea $65,000 for the brief appearance.

    The 35-year-old former first daughter agreed to a deal where she would talk for just 10 minutes and take part in a 20-minute question and answer session.

    She then spent 30 minutes posing for photographs with special guests and VIPs.

    She reportedly  didn’t personally receive any of the fee, as it was directed to the Clinton Foundation.

    Chelsea’s spokesman Kamyl Bazbaz said, “Chelsea is grateful to have the opportunity to speak at events like this while also supporting the work of the Clinton Foundation.”

    There was no reference to her $65,000 fee going to charity in dozens of e-mails exchanged between University of Missouri officials and Clinton’s representatives at the Harry Walker Agency, which arranges appearances by all three Clintons. Nor was there any reference in the five-page contract.

    She has delivered nine paid speeches on behalf of the nonprofit organization in recent years, raising as much as $800,000.

    Chelsea was a news reporter for NBC News but quit her job in 2014, because of her increased workload for the Clinton Foundation.
