Former President Barack Obama loved to attack Wall Street, often criticizing them for their greed and for causing the financial crisis in 2008.
Now, our hypocrite of an ex-president is set to receive $400,000 from the Wall Street firm Cantor Fitzgerald LP to speak at a healthcare conference in September.
“What sources are telling Fox Business Network is that former President Obama, now less than 100 days out of office, has agreed to a speaking engagement during Cantor Fitzgerald’s health care conference in September,” said Gasparino, according to Real Clear Politics.
“We understand that he is going to be the keynote speaker for the lunch, and he’s going to receive a fee of $400,000,” he continued. “We should point out that that’s in line with what (former Democrat presidential nominee) Hilary Clinton got … we should point out that Cantor will neither confirm or deny.”
So much for accountability from Obama. He is now the same as Hillary Clinton, who is famous for receiving large sums of money to speak on Wall Street.
In one move, Obama proved that he is nothing but a hypocrite. He is clearly as greedy as the Wall Street bankers he used to criticize.
