During an interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer in June, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton claimed that she and her husband were “dead broke” when they left the White House. Things are looking up for the former first lady, whose “concert rider” includes quite a few perks. As Ace of Spades HQ reports:
To secure Hillary Clinton to give a public policy speech, you must provide her with:
a private jet to ferry her hither and yon
the “presidential suite” at a local hotel of her choosing
the guarantee that nothing she says will be recorded by any means, video or audio, and that the only record of her appearance will be a stenographer’s transcription
@iowahawkblog bet she's got tons of those little shampoos and hand creams

@iowahawkblog Probably hums Tennessee Ernie Fords "16 Tons" as she's G-IV'ing to her next speech.

@iowahawkblog Being 'dead broke' Clinton style must be sweet!

Even the hosts of “Good Morning America” took a shot after hearing the list of demands.
