Obama’s mystery fee for Italy speech renews debate over lucrative lecturing by ex-presidents

President Obama took heat from friend and foe alike by signing on for a pair of speeches at $400,000 apiece, but a mystery fee for a climate change address in Milan this week could leave those deals in the dust.

Neither Team Obama nor Seeds & Chips, the organization hosting the May 8-11 Italian summit, will say how much Obama is getting paid. That prompted wild speculation from one publication, which did a back-of-the-napkin estimation that put Obama’s payment at a potential $3.2 million.

While that number appears to have been the total cost for all 3,500 tickets to the event on how food innovation can save humanity from climate change, which went for 850 euros, or $925, a piece, it still leaves open the question of how much Obama got.

The Express replaced its previous piece with an updated story that made no mention of any speaking fee, and representatives for the former president did not return Fox News’ request for comment. Michela Gelati — a spokesperson for Seeds & Chips, — told Fox News that they did not have the information.

    What a dammed glutton greedy perverted democRat,who doesn’t deserve a penny.For the crimes
    and deaths he committed against Christians alone in the Middle East (over 250 thousand),he ought to sent hell.

  • Warren

    Seniors reach a certain point in gross income their Social Security Retirement payments are reduced then at another point they are voided same should be true for former Politicians 800k should get him $0 and Secret Service should be billed. Twould be willing to bet he didn’t pay a nickel into it

  • Bob S

    Just goes to show…There’s a lot of money to be made off of climate control… er ….change!

  • gvette

    A country that is broke, wants to pay Obozo that much. Something’s wrong with this picture! Then again, me personally, I wouldn’t walk across the street to listen to the gay, Muslim, ne-gro

    • Anouk

      I was thinking the same thing. Italy is so broke. Why do they want to spend this money for a pathological liar ex prez.
      Doesn’t make sense that all.

      • gvette

        Well, most of Europe is socialist, so I guess he’ll fit right in! He can share with them how he doubled the debt of the US.

        • Anouk

          I wish this rat moves to a socialist communist country to learn what real life is.
          He doesn’t deserve to live in the great USA!

          • gvette

            Have you noticed, he hasn’t spent much time in the US after leaving the WH. I think he’s afraid of what might be coming his way. I think when Trump can get the DOJ straitened out, they may go after Obama, and I think he knows it!

          • Anouk

            Obo is such a coward. He tried to destroy the beautiful America and I can’t wait for him to be punished.
            Whatever punishment he gets will be OK.

          • gvette

            Remember, he was brought up a communist. His backer was/is Soros, who want to destroy our country. Kinda funny when you think about it. Soros was educated here, and made his wealth here, and that’s the thanks he wants to give us.
            The MSN isn’t telling anyone, but in short time, Trump has done a lot for our country. LOL…meanwhile the DemonRATS are looking for Russians under their beds!!

  • Walter Flatt

    HE SHOULD BE TRIED FOR TREASON, ALONG WITH HIS INTIRE STAFF.

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC. (TAKE OVER WASHINGTON, COULD BE) WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS IF SO.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

  • Jose

    The beginning of this article shows how obama’s puppets still believe he is in charge. To begin an article with “President Obama” is so out of touch. He is NO LONGER president and not only a former one but a greedy former one who learned well from clinton. There is only on president and it is President TRUMP.

    • Anouk

      You are 100% right! President Trump IS our President. Forget about this ex fraud president zero. He is gone.

  • JF

    No congressman, senator, president, or appointed individual should be paid a retirement. Most if not all are millionaires when they leave office.

  • Pat Cross

    If they are paid that much in speaker fees, they should also pay for their own goddam travel and security
