Barack and Michelle Obama have only been out of the White House for a few weeks. However, they have already shown how greedy they are by launching a sickening plan that they believe is sure to make them millions.
Fox Business reported that the Obamas are hard at work negotiating lucrative book deals and paid speaking engagements for themselves. They have hired top-dollar attorneys Robert Barnett and Deneen Howell to handle their book contracts as well as the same public relations firm that manages the Clintons to handle their speaking appearances.
The Harry Walker Agency boasts various A-list clients such as former President Bill Clinton, former Secretary-General of the United Nations Kofi Annan, former Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and former vice presidents Dick Cheney and Al Gore. The agency will now be handling all of the Obamas’ post White House speeches.
Barack is set to earn more than half of his annual $400,000 presidential salary, per speech, according to Peter Shankman, founder and CEO of social media, marketing and PR strategy firm The Geek Factory.
“No doubt [former President Obama’s] first speech could easily [command] $250k at minimum,” said Shankman, who represents clients like American Express, Walt Disney World and The U.S. Department of Defense.
Shockingly, Michelle will be making around that much money per speech as well.
“Michelle will also see numbers around [$250K per speech] for the first year as well,” he said. “Those fees probably won’t drop anytime soon, when you stop and think about it, especially if Obama continues to be vocal, as he [has] said he would.”
It’s sickening that the Obamas are about to make millions for themselves while most Americans are still struggling to survive thanks to his ridiculous policies. SHARE this story if you can’t STAND the Obamas!
