Chelsea Clinton gets $250K/year Expedia board seat, just ‘cuz
Washington Times ^ | 3/20/2017 | Kelly Riddell

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. Clinton’s responsibilities will be at the online travel-booking company is unclear — the company’s financial filings don’t detail.

Expedia’s 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 Expedia’s voting shares, so he’s single-handedly able to alter its board from 13 to 14 people to accommodate the younger Clinton. And he’s 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 Geico’s gecko.

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.

Gotta keep Hillary on life support until 2020.

Democrats are praying for some devine intervention so we can somehow have a nationwide election in 2018.

Last line of the article:

"Here’s 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.

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!

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.

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.

#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.

Same here.

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.

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.

Sigh.

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's already been gorging at the Diller trough for the past 4 years, at least:

"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."

"earns" is surely not the word for what the Hubbell/Clintonista spawn is doing here!!!
