Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took a haircut for a public speaking fee in New Jersey.
Known to commanded speaking fees upwards of $200,000, Hillary’s fee from Rutgers University was significantly scaled back.
Fox News reports:
Clinton was paid $25,000 to speak at Rutgers University about being targeted as a woman in politics, the upcoming elections and the Trump administration, among other topics, NJ.com reported.
Clinton, at one point, was asking for $275,000 to speak at a University of Missouri luncheon, according to the Washington Post. In 2008, she was reportedly paid $225,000 by the futures brokerage firm CME Group.
While Hillary was invited to talk about several topics, including “politics, American democracy and her role in shaping women’s political history,” MTV’s “Jersey Shore” reality show personality Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was paid far more to encourage students to “Study hard, but party harder.”
For example, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, of “Jersey Shore” fame, was paid $32,000 for her Rutgers appearance in 2011. Students paid for her appearance using money from the student activity fees undergraduates pay at the school, according to NJ.com.
Polizzi didn’t offer any political talking points, but told students: “Study hard, but party harder.”
