After Hillary Clinton’s “medical episodes” yesterday and the subsequent announcement that she is suffering from pneumonia, there was talk amongst the media regarding the possibility of canceling her scheduled events for the week.
Hillary was set to attend two high profile Hollywood fundraisers in the coming days, one at comedian Seth MacFarelen’s house and another at IAC chairman Barry Diller’s home.
The Wrap reports:
MacFarlane is hosting an event on Tuesday at his Beverly Hills home, with a special performance by Lionel Richie. Tickets for the afternoon event were set at $33,400 for “Contributors.” “Hosts” raising $50,000 get to have lunch and take a photo with Clinton. “Co-hosts” who raise $10,000 will attend a lunch and get “preferred seating.”
Another big fundraiser, at the home of Diane von Furstenberg and IAC Chairman Barry Diller, was priced a $100,000-per-couple dinner. Ex-Disney boss Michael Eisner and wife Jane are co-chairing the event. Tickets are set at $100,000 per couple.
With such a massive amount of money on the line for her campaign, I thought to myself if Hillary Clinton is canceling these events, she must be extremely ill indeed! Far be it from the Clinton’s to ever turn down an opportunity to collect donations of any kind, especially when they only need to be in attendance for a few hours to rack in hundreds of thousands of dollars. Considering Hillary’s speaking fees alone range in the $150,000 range, her appearances must be very valuable indeed.
Since Hillary has fallen ill, what would happen to the 100k per couple dinner plans of all the donors who have pouring money into the Clinton campaign?
Fear not, Bill Clinton to the rescue, who has eagerly stepped in his wife’s place to make sure that her campaign gobbles up every last dollar that they can.
The Wrap reports that the fundraisers will go on as planned, and although attendees will not be mingling with the Clinton that is currently running for president, they will get to see the Clinton who was our former president.
While Hillary Clinton is recuperating from her sudden “illness”, the fundraising plans must go on, and with Hillary’s latest medical issues, I have no doubt her campaign will attempt to leverage the “sympathy” aspect to garner even more money out of the wealthy elite.
All the while, Donald Trump is attending his usual rallies with the people of our country, the voters and those who don’t have the ability to donate large sums of money due to Obama’s crippling of the middle class.
Who would you rather have leading the country, someone who never misses an opportunity to rack in millions from the elite upper class? Or someone who dedicates every day to visiting the men and women who work every day to support their families?
