If anyone thinks former President Barack Obama’s planned $400,000 Wall Street speech was a “fluke,” they need to think again.
On Thursday, former Obama received a whopping $400,000 speaking fee for a short appearance at an A&E Network event, which was swept under the rug.
Free Beacon reports:
The “History Makers lunch” was hosted by A&E’s history channel and attended by representatives of A&E advertisers, the New York Post reported. Those in attendance included Harvey Weinstein, Anna Wintour, Bob Sauerberg, Janice Min, and Penske Media CEO Jay Penske. Obama received a standing ovation on entering the room.
The former president’s appearance featured a 90 minute interview with historian Doris Kearns Goodwin. Goodwin asked Obama questions on what he most missed about the White House (the view of the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial in summer), and about life after office. Obama informed the crowd that in the three months since leaving office, he has not yet been behind the wheel of a car, and is still relearning how to use his coffee machine.
