Bill Clinton reportedly appeared at event only after donation

President Clinton appeared at a supermodel’s charity event to receive a lifetime achievement award after she offered to share at least $500,000 of the gala’s proceeds with the Clinton Foundation, according to a Friday report from The New York Times.

The former executive director of the Happy Hearts Fund, founded by Czech model Petra Nemcova, told the paper that Clinton didn’t agree to appear at the June 2014 event until after the charity offered the donation, which made up more than a quarter of the event’s proceeds.

“The Clinton Foundation had rejected the Happy Hearts Fund invitation more than once, until there was a thinly veiled solicitation and then the offer of an honorarium,” Sue Veres Royal told the Times. She was dismissed from the organization soon after based on what the paper describes as “conflicts over the gala and other issues.”

Nemcova held the event last year to commemorate the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, which she personally survived by holding onto a palm tree for hours despite shattering her pelvis. Her boyfriend, Simon Atlee, died in the flood.

    White trash. That’s what such people used to be called, what they are. It has nothing to do with money and everything to do with character and honor…of which they have none.

    “Life time achievement award” !?!? These IDIOTS, both of them, need to be forgotten, they are not worthy of any print or ink. But, hey, the LSM love them.

    Just how stupid is this model ?????? Can’t even imagine walking across the street to listen to this scum speak. I still believe he embarrassed this country and made a mockery of the White House which has since rendered the status of being president of the US next to nothing. It used to be a position like no other in the world — with respect, honor, dignity but slick willie was the beginning of the down hill spiral of the POTUS to the slimey, deceitful,greedy, dishonorable, corrupt bottom feeders of today.

    Now you know why liberalism is considered to be a mental disease. Only a mentally ill person would pay a convicted perjurer and pathological liar a half a million dollars to give a speech for a fund raiser.
