Liberals Think Obama’s $400K Wall Street Speaking Fee Is ‘Troubling’ [VIDEO]

The irony is thick here. When I saw the news that Obama was going to get $400,000 for his Wall Street speech, I had to laugh. If anyone thought he’d do this for free, then they’ve been living under a rock for the last 10 years. What’s even funnier about this is the liberals just can’t understand why Obama is going over to the dark side!!

Former President Obama’s upcoming speech to Wall Streeters is putting $400,000 in his pocket – and putting longtime supporters in a difficult situation.

Democratic Party leaders and grass roots activists alike are at a loss to explain how the onetime champion of the 99 percent could cash in with a September address at a health care conference run by investment firm Cantor Fitzgerald.

Yessireee… the guy who spent the last 10 years slamming the fat cats on Wall Street, slamming big money, and going after the wealthy will be paid $400K for ONE speech.

Show Me The Money!!

This is ironic given what Obama said just a few days ago.

The Huffington Post asked WHY?

Exactly. Meanwhile Tucker Carlson discussed it on his show the other night and on cue the Democrat talking points were trotted out.

Meanwhile, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is ‘troubled’ by his decision to cash in. Was she equally ‘troubled’ by Hillary’s multiple $300K speeches over the last few years? Ummm well, she’d rather call Trump a money grubber than Hillary so you be the judge.

The Washington Post desperately wants Obama to back out of the speech altogether.

The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake is imploring him to rethink his decision. In addition to appearing like a hypocrite, the editors point out that if Obama accepts the money it will be poor optics for the Democratic Party – the last thing a defeated and divided party needs right now.

Meanwhile Brent Budowsky at The Hill calls Obama’s speaking fee “shameful.”

Obama says he will travel across the country to inspire young people to participate in politics.

He should include in his lectures to young people the thought that they should not turn out like he did, when he promised transforming reform of Wall Street and change we can believe in, and turned out to be another guy who took the same questionable Wall Street money for the same questionable reasons as the Republicans he attacked in his campaign to become president.


Somehow the argument that Obama raised more money from Wall Street during his 2008 campaign is falling flat with much of the liberal base. Especially when Obama himself talked about the problems of special interest groups in his book, “The Audacity of Hope.”

Newsflash to all those liberals who profess to be surprised and shocked by Obama’s speaking fees. All the signs have been there for the last 10 years. His expensive vacations to Hawaii and Martha’s Vineyard. All the mega rich business moguls and celebrities who traipsed in and out of the White House constantly should’ve been a clue. Those who golfed with him weren’t poor either. Obama spent more time in the last 10 years with the 1 percenters than he did with the 99 percent.

So, for all the liberals who are now crying in their Cheerios because their hero has turned out to be a money grubber just like all the rest, I have zero sympathy for you. You’re reaping what you sowed.
