As Twitchy reported earlier this week, former President Barack Obama returned to the public eye with an appearance at the University of Chicago, which he’ll follow up this fall with a speech at the Cantor Fitzgerald healthcare conference, for which he’ll collect a check for $400,000.

Though Sen. Elizabeth Warren portrays herself as Wall Street’s worst enemy, she didn’t hesitate to hit the campaign trail with Hillary Clinton, who famously was paid $675,000 by Goldman Sachs for three speeches. Why so much? “That’s what they offered,” she explained to CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

Without an election on the line, it seems Warren once again is finding it troubling for Democrats to be raking in huge speaking fees from Wall Street giants like Cantor Fitzgerald.

CBS News reports:

Former President Obama is coming under fire from a member of his own party over an upcoming speech in September paid for by Wall Street firm Cantor Fitzgerald LP.

“I was troubled by that,” Senator Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, a fierce Wall Street critic, said on Thursday during in an interview with Sirius XM’s “Alter Family Politics” program.

That’s “coming under fire”? It’s surprising Warren said anything at all, but we suppose she has an image to maintain. The important thing to her supporters is that she’s troubled by something.
