The Art of the Steal

Oh, those Clinton people think they’re SO clever. They’ve started an anti-Trump website Isn’t that just super clever? The irony is, just days after launching this website the real art of the steal was revealed and it isn’t by Donald Trump; it’s by Hillary Clinton.

Twenty-Six Million

Gucifer 2.0 released a new round of documents hacked from the DNC and Clinton Foundation and buried within is Hillary’s Art of the Steal: her own, get-rich quick scheme to live like a billionaire courtesy of idiots who would pay her to come make a speech.

Why anyone in his right mind would actually pay money to listen to that shrill, shrieking harpy is anybody’s guess. But, there’s a sucker born every minute.

The hackers produced a letter from Beth Gargano, Senior Vice President of the Harry Walker Agency. The Harry Walker Agency is (according to their website) the “The World’s Leading Speakers Bureau,” and represented Hillary for her speaking engagements.

The letter is clearly the pro forma follow-up sent to those requesting that Her Thighness come speak at their event. It itemizes Hillary’s list of demands in exchange for the excruciating torture of hearing her speak. And it’s about what you’d expect.

I’ve transcribed a good portion of it for you here:

I enjoyed speaking with you about the possibility of Secretary Clinton participating in your upcoming event. I look forward to working closely with you on this opportunity.
I want to share with you the standard requirements for her appearances:
Fee and Travel Expenses:
• The fee for this type of event would be $225,000, plus a chartered roundtrip private jet, hotel accommodations, ground transportation, any meals and incidentals for Secretary Clinton, her travel aides and advance staff as detailed below:

Let’s stop there. When Bernie hammered Hillary on taking millions of dollars to make speeches, Hillary claimed that she only accepted the fees people were offering. This “standard requirements” list kind of flies in the face of that argument. It was Hillary Clinton that demanded what the fee should be.

But notice as well that she isn’t just demanding to be flown there and back, she is demanding that she be given roundtrip travel on a private jet. God forbid Hillary travel first class on a regular airline like some commoner.

Let’s get into the specifics, shall we?

• Air Transportation: The host will be responsible for the costs associated with a chartered roundtrip private air transportation (e.g., a Gulfstream 450 or larger jet), which must be paid in advance of the event. In addition, the host will need to pay for one roundtrip, first class airfare between New York and Washington, DC for one of Secretary Clinton’s travel aides. The host will also need to pay for roundtrip business class airfare to and from the event city for two (2) advance staffers who will arrive in the city of the engagement up to three (3) business days prior to the event.

It’s good to be the Queen.

But wait! There’s more!

• Accommodations: The host is responsible for hotel accommodations at a hotel identified by Secretary Clinton’s staff. Accommodations should include a presidential suite for Secretary Clinton and up to three (3) adjoining or contiguous single rooms for her travel aides and up to two (2) additional single rooms for advance staff.

See, about now, I’d be calling these hacks back and telling them that Secretary Clinton can take a Gulfstream and a presidential suite and shove them up her ass.

• Travel Stipend: In addition to the expenses outlined above, the host will be responsible for a $500 flat payment to reimburse the lead travel aide for out-of-pocket travel expenses.
• Meals and Incidentals: The host is responsible for all ground transportation for Secretary Clinton, her travel aides and the advance staff while they are in the city of the engagement, as well as all phone charges/cell phones and meals during their stay.

Now, here’s the kicker. This one is just so classic Hillary:

• Transcription: The host will be responsible for a flat fee of $1,000 for the services of the onsite stenographer who will be responsible for creating an immediate transcript of Secretary Clinton’s remarks. The Agency will coordinate all of the arrangements for the stenographer. We will be unable to share a copy of the transcript following the event. [Underline emphasis mine]

There’s another page, but I think you get the idea.

Just like the Obamas, Hillary expects to be given the royal treatment wherever she goes. And for what? So she can make a twenty-minute speech? Hillary’s entire time at the event is 60 minutes, and half of that is at the reception. All for $225,000 plus the royal treatment.

What a scam.

For Hillary to claim that Trump has mastered the Art of the Steal either shows that she has a big set of kiwis or, more likely, she really is lacking in any self-awareness.

I gotta say, I’m thoroughly enjoying the Schadenfreude that these hacked documents are providing. Because once again, Hillary’s attempt to slam Trump bounces off of him and sticks to her.
