According to her speaking contract, Hillary Clinton’s come a long way since her ‘dead broke’ days

Hillary Clinton doesn’t seem as concerned about the threat of climate change when it comes to her own travels. What a surprise.

Here’s a glimpse at her lofty speech demands from the Las Vegas Journal-Review:

Hillary Rodham Clinton likes to travel in style.

She insists on staying in the “presidential suite” of luxury hotels that she chooses anywhere in the world, including Las Vegas.

She usually requires those who pay her six-figure fees for speeches to also provide a private jet for transportation — only a $39 million, 16-passenger Gulfstream G450 or larger will do.

And she doesn’t travel alone, relying on an entourage of a couple of “travel aides,” and a couple of advance staffers who check out her speech site in the days leading up to her appearance, much like a White House trip, according to her contract and supporting documents concerning her Oct. 13 speech at a University of Nevada, Las Vegas Foundation fundraiser. The documents were obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal through the state public records law.
According to her standard speaking contract, Clinton will remain at the event no longer than 90 minutes; will pose for no more than 50 photos with no more than 100 people; and won’t allow any press coverage or video- or audio-taping of her speech.

With God as her witness, she’ll never be hungry again!

Probably the most disturbing thing about this is that there are people who agree to her terms.
