Half a million dollars to speak for 45.
Minutes at the birthday event for Israeli President Shimon Peres think about it.
Every cent to 111000.
Dollars and it.
Now in all fairness the money isn't going right to bills pocket it's going to -- charity instead but it can't just heard some circles and it got us thinking.

Happy almost smiling face usually -- base but they're very -- can series based on the us that you.
First Turkey held talks I love it so you know all and hope that.
Are you staggered by this number and do you think because they are out there trying to raise charity do you think that -- donors.
It's -- so much -- as the Jewish national by the how to they feel about this half -- about.
Well couple things first of all when was the last time you ever heard of the Jewish national fund network.
So all of a sudden the money they're paying Clinton has already gotten and the big benefit there on national television.
Remember it's not a matter of what he says it's not even about Clinton it's a matter of exchange of value.
People company's highest bidders for two reasons they either hire them because of their attendance ability they can draw people Franken certainly do that great -- -- they hire them.
For the content they provide that's why they hire me.
I don't get those kind of -- unfortunately.
What you do if if he gets the people there who open their checkbooks and you build the kind of reputation the he's done his job plus remember Clinton is catnip for journalists so when he shows up people pay attention it's your.
I feel like they don't need my money if they are able to -- Half a million dollars that they don't need my thousand dollars you know why -- I and then 250 dollars they have that kind of cash lying around.
Then I don't think I can make a donation that's meaningful to them so why should I give them anything I think that's the problem with something.
-- usually though the speaker's fee is not -- -- you get that you get the program it's got the names of who's coming doesn't say how much they're getting paid to that's not usually a problem.

In an interview setting I mean when you watch and look at right now when you watch him after a batch they got to cut those things up because he is not that exciting to listen to you.
