Guess How Much Bill & Hillary Have Pocketed in Speaking Fees Since 2001?

You’re not going to believe this. Okay, maybe you will. But it’s still hard to fathom.

Bill and Hillary Clinton have given more than 1,450 speeches (either together or individually) since 2001.

Want to know how much money they’ve pocketed from those speeches? CNN reports:

(CNN) Hillary Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, combined to earn more than $153 million in paid speeches from 2001 until Hillary Clinton launched her presidential campaign last spring, a CNN analysis shows.

In total, the two gave 729 speeches from February 2001 until May, receiving an average payday of $210,795 for each address. The two also reported at least $7.7 million for at least 39 speeches to big banks, including Goldman Sachs and UBS, with Hillary Clinton, the Democratic 2016 front-runner, collecting at least $1.8 million for at least eight speeches to big banks.

The analysis was made at a time when Hillary Clinton has been under scrutiny for her ties to Wall Street, which has been a major focus of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders on the campaign trail.

“What being part of the establishment is, is in the last quarter, having a super PAC that raised $15 million from Wall Street, that throughout one’s life raised a whole lot of money from the drug companies and other special interests,” Sanders said at Thursday’s Democratic debate hosted by MSNBC.

Here’s a quick rundown from CNN on the speaking fees they’ve collected:

It’s laughable that Hillary continues to try to paint herself as an ordinary woman just trying to make it in the world… when she’s actually in the top percentile of the wealthiest people of the world.

Not the 1%… but the top 0.25%.

Do you think this will persuade Hillary supporters to vote for somebody different?

Don’t give them that much credit… they’re total idiots.

    Huh! She has stated on numerous occassions that she & Bill are broke, we all know she cannot handle her personal life, lies, steals, committs fraud, now you’re telling us she can’t even balance her own check book, or control her own spending to the sum of 150 million, & she wants to run our government, control spending, & balance the books!!

    How does this compare with other former presidents? I have hesrd that Carter still is offered fees , but seldom takes them, but instead hax them donate the money to the Carter Center. As soon as Reagan left office, he took a cool million from Japan, with no US taxes, and there is no Reagan Foundation; Bush I I don’t know; Bush II not much because he his not all that popular, and only goes where he will not be prosecuted or overseas; Obama and his wife will get lots, and maybe even buy their own home. On spending – Clinton donated a lot to the building of his presidential library, where all of the books are not already colored, and they have made substantial, after tax, contributions to their non profit Foundation. Who in the hell would want to be President at $400K/yr when they could have gone into law practice and made much more. He and Michelle will be offered the book deals, because most of their supporters can read. The money is made after leaving office to compensate for the stress.
    The reasons why there are so few conservative professors is that it takes an open mind to adjust to changes.
