Posted on 03/20/2017 6:44:02 PM PDT by simpson96
Chelsea Clinton was named to the board of Expedia you know, because all of her experience in the technology and cybersecurity field.
In her newly named position, Mrs. Clinton will get $45,000 a year in cash, plus $250,000 a year in stock vesting over three years. What Mrs. Clintons responsibilities will be at the online travel-booking company is unclear the companys financial filings dont detail.
Expedias chairman, billionaire Barry Diller, is a longtime Clinton ally and prolific fundraiser for the political family. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Mr. Diller and his wife Diane von Furstenberg hosted a Conversation and Dinner with Hillary Clinton, with tickets priced at $100,000 per couple.
Mr. Diller has collected 54 percent of Expedias voting shares, so hes single-handedly able to alter its board from 13 to 14 people to accommodate the younger Clinton. And hes done it before.
Mr. Diller is also chairman of IAC Interactive, and invited Chelsea to sit on its board four years ago. In that position, Mrs. Clinton earns $50,000 in cash a year, and $249,936 in stock.
Chelsea started her career working for management consulting firm McKinsey & Company and investment firm Avenue Capital Group. She ditched those jobs for a cozy $600,000 a year gig reporting for NBC News, where she conducted hard-hitting interviews with the likes of Geicos gecko.

Won’t be ever using Expedia’s service again.
She’s her mother’s daughter, all right. No shame.
When these kinds of things aren’t thinly disguised bribes, they are thinly disguised money laundering.
If the Clintons still had power, I would suggest the former. If they didn’t, I would suggest the latter.
Access to corruption doesn’t come cheap. I guess this is proof that the Clintons are still up to their necks in some or other lucrative criminal enterprise.
Democrats are praying for some devine intervention so we can somehow have a nationwide election in 2018.
"Heres to Mrs. Clinton taking advantage of her namesake. It would almost be unnatural for her not to."
She’s what I call gifted. She’s gifted with this. She’s gifted with that. She’ll be gifted a lot more in life.
This isn’t race related or gender related. It’s just because...
All this ignored her role at the family foundation (cough cough). Things are winding down there now that the gig is up.
How many interviews did Chelsea do for $600,000 dollars per year?
What’s her going rate, $100,000 an hour? That seems to be only half what her parents get, and to hear what? Them regurgitate things most of us know to be completely false.
Chelsea isn’t worth $10.00 an hour, if I’m payin.
Will not be using Expedia or any of their companies. Although I might still use Exlax.
This really bothers me. With all her real-life experience, Chelsea Clinton should have been appointed Chairwoman of the Board. Yet they only offered her a seat. This is sexism at its worst!
PSA: DVF perfume smells like cat piss.
It’s not as insanely generous as NBC was when it paid her $600,000 for two TV specials that were dreadful. That was real money.
And not using Expedia anymore for my business or anything travel arrangements. App deleted!
Interesting how he made room for her right after rumors began surfacing that she may run for Senate?? (unbelievable?!) and/or her mom is considerig a mayoral run.
Is this news?
Sorry, but the dumb beeyotch couldn’t dump water out of a boot with instructions on the heel. What the heck is Expedia thinking? She’s worthless as boobs on a bull, for crying out loud.
Money for Nuthin
Daddy’s little Princess Silverspoon. Expedia must be run by morons.
Can you imagine what you could do with 100 grand? A "Coversation and Dinner with Hillary Clintoonie" would definitely be at the bottom of my list.
Chelsea’s title of address is Mrs. Mezvinskey, not sure of the spelling. Her mother’s title of address is Mrs. Clinton.
I would say she is a grifter just like her parents er Web Hubbell.
#1 - if she is still married, I wish people would call her by her married name - or at least hyphenated with her married name.
#2 - I said before, this is perfect for her .. because this way she can travel all over the world for free .. especially since the Clinton Foundation is not around to support her anymore.
So Barry Diller has named Chelsea to two different board seats at two different companies. It’s his money and he can do what he wants. He’s clearly decided he wants to make Bill and Hillary’s kid rich. But it’s pretty tacky. For someone who just can’t find an interest in money, Chelsea is doing ok as a kept woman.
White privilege at it’s best.
she's earned these posts by virtue of, well, clinton
Her family has appeared that way to me for decades. Except for the moving around party, they’re just ordinary gypsies.
They did float around from Arkansas to Washington, D. C., to New York, but that is sort of normal for ex-presidents and their families.
The thing is, they combine it with influence peddling and special case hires for very lucrative salaries. And it’s for nothing in return. There’s no services rendered. There’s no product delivered.
Chelsea probably hasn’t lifted a finger at any of her jobs. That’s my take on it.
This is beyond disgusting. I will never use Expedia again, and will counsel my friends not to do so either.
I have worked with two GREAT men that were on a major board, they were brilliant, successful, entrepreneurs that had been in their fields 40 years and were tops and the best men I have ever known. I do not know Webbs daughter, but she is nothing like those men were.
Wont be ever using Expedias service again.
So maybe the poor dear is finally learning to care about money just a little.
Won’t be using Expedia ever again.
Her duties will be to empty the sacks of cash into the washer, and sort it into payback piles when done.
It's a bet and an investment in what they hope will be a resurgence of the democrat party.
Chelsea is sort of the "Rosemary's Baby" of the democrat party - the spawn of their real King and Queen.
She belongs to the party as Rosemary's Baby belonged to all the worshippers of Satan.
She won't actually have to do anything more than carry the Clinton name into the next generation.
Going on a bitter rant here:
I Got laid off last month. I cant get even job interview for the life of me. I have 28 years experience. No one wants me.
Chelsea Clinton has no work experience in this field or any other. Yet she can land a $250k/year job she isnt qualified for.
I’d just be happy to land a $50k/year job.
She has absolutely ZERO qualifications for being appointed to such a lofty position in a multi-billion dollar business enterprise. She knows much less about the commerce of travel and the operations of such a business than the average business traveler, MILLIONS of them. This is a total political payoff for the Clintonistas. Shameless.
You do not think that Chelsea Hubbell got her job through her skills and work history do you? It is the way that the Establishment supports the Democrat ruling class until they can be put in elected office and then rape the treasury and spread it around. As the majority of voters wanted their favorite muslim to do.
She is gifted in a very special way. the type of way where the R is silent
If a company wants to pour their money down a rat hole for political gain it is their business. Must be nice to have that kind of money to waste.
Gore got the same payoff from Apple.
Just set up a non-refundable vacation through them. I can regret but not rescind.
Running out of people to do business with.
Gee, so now Chelsea is a “bookie”. Goes right along with the rest of the Clinton Crime Family rip-offs and “fake jobs”.
Barry Diller, you are a schmuck.
Does Expedia expect the Clintons to rise again? I can’t think of any other reason to hire Chelsea.
Chelsea’s husband has more business sense than she does ... and he’s the one who ran his hedge fund into the ground, losing 90% of his shareholders’ assets in the process.
Huh? Doing their best to associate her with her witch mother.
The Clinton Foundation has billions it has to convert.
If I was going to travel (I don’t want to any more), Expedia would be on my banned list.
i don’t think her name is Mrs. Clinton
By following in her parents influence buying/selling enterprise, earning something for nothing is just one of the perks.
Why does the writer refer to the Chelsea bitch as “MRS. Clinton”? How stupid are “journalists”? Oh, wait ... never mind.
