Compare Chelsea Clinton’s $75K per speech to Americans’ median income.
Were it not for her parents, it is a safe bet that Chelsea Clinton would be like the majority of other Americans struggling and fighting to make $15 per hour.
However, the former first daughter was born with a tax-payer funded silver spoon in her mouth. This, apparently, entitles her to command up to $75,000 per speech.
At $75K a pop, that is a far cry from the $54,462 that the median American household earned in 2015.
As the New York Daily News sums up:
Chelsea Clinton, who merely lived in the White House for eight years, is paid as much for speaking engagements as an ex-vice president who actually worked there for eight years.
At $75,000 a pop, the 34-year-old mom-to-be is pulling down the same fees as former Vice President Dick Cheney.
The former First Daughter has never run for office, held a public policy job or done philanthropic work outside her family business.
To make matters worse, once her mother ascends to the Oval Office, the Clinton spawn will likely be able to command even more money for her speeches.
