With all the talk about Hunter Biden these days, one might get the impression that he is the only child of a politician to benefit from his parents position and the last name they inherited.
Before Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joseph R. Biden, got his strange but lucrative deal to sit on the board of energy company Burisma Holdings in Ukraine to the tune of $50,000 a month, there was Chelsea Clinton, the only child of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. She was similarly rewarded with jobs and board positions that had absolutely no relationship with that young womans interests, life, education or any perceived expertise.
All of this has racked up to what the New York Post reported back in 2015 was an estimated net worth of $15 million for the then-34-year-old. More recently, Barrons, the finance newspaper, revealed that Chelsea Clinton has now reaped $9 million from a corporate board position. In 2011, while her mother was still secretary of state, she was appointed to IAC/Interactive, an Internet investment company. She receives an annual $50,000 retainer and $250,000 worth of restricted IAC stock units, according to Barrons.
Ironically, and something the Clintons would be loathed to admit, they like most other American families benefitted from President Donald Trumps leadership and correlating economic renaissance.
The Hill reported, IAC stock has risen 89%, 50% and 36% in 2017, 2018 and 2019, respectively, a far steeper rise in the broader stock market.
Consequently, Chelsea Clinton reported in December of last year her holdings ballooned to $8.95 million.
In 2017, Chelsea Clinton was also named to travel site Expedias Board of Directors. Because shes a business genius? A travel genius? An investment prodigy? The Hill reported that position typically earned $250,000 in

"She made big bucks in chemicals and TV, courtesy of nepotism, not skill"
She also gradauted from Stanford after never attending any classes!
IIRC Mooshelle 0bama had a no show job on the Board of Directors at a Chicago Hospital before Zero was ever even elected. She was in charge of shuttling poor ER patients to Specialty Hospitals.
Hey Tammy - The Clintons ARE loathed, but in this case they are loath to admit.
You mean Chelsea Hubble? Right?
I believe she even graduated Magna Cum Laude! What a joke as we watched her go on a world tour with Mommy and Daddy, before they left office, during her last year in college.
Didnt go behind the paywall to read this
But I think her necklace is the jewelry that pays tribute to who endows her family
The upside down cross she wore openly
until people started to comment
No, spare the excuses, shes no disciple of St Peter
Her mothers college thesis was dedicated to Saul Alinsky, who
praised Lucifer as the worlds first true radical
Jenna and Barbara Bush provide a perfect contrast. Both have built independent lives and careers. They’ve obviously had doors opened because of who they are, but they’re not grifters. They work actual jobs and stick at them, unlike Chelsea, whose career has been a matter of ceaselessly failing upward until landing back in the cocoon of the family crime syndicate.
She got that job when he was in the Senate and could steer funding to that hospital.
My high school jobs counselor told me I was screwed, because I wasn’t the offspring of a Democrat politician...
Tax dollars funnel in, payola funnels out. Pretty simple really. Id guess pretty much all of them have been doing it. Stealing our money for years.
She should go out and earn a damn living like Eric Trump does
It’s just an advance payment to help chelsea’s presidential aspirations. The clinton crime family will take note of the contribution, and reward them in due time.
Yes, I noticed that as well.
I wonder what Malaria Obama will get after Harvard.
Stanford was Chels intro to no show jobs
Why do these companies still think they have to pay off the Corrupt Clinton’s? Does Slick Willy and Hitlery still threaten these people or promise them some pay back?
If Chelsea was paid for her skills & abilities, I have a hunch that she might be deep in debt by now.
Every company needs a 9 million dollar utterly vapid, bleating goat child of a corrupt politician on their board.
