A List of Hillary Clinton’s Demands to Accept $300,000 for a University Speech

WapO used a Freedom of Information Act request to get an inside look at just what it takes to get Hillary Clinton to come speak at your university, beyond her fee of  $300,000, which is apparently the “special university rate.” 
Other demands included:
·        On the stage: lemon wedges, room temperature water, a carafe of warm/hot water, coffee cup and saucer
·        A computer, mouse, printer and scanner
·        Spread of hummus
·        Chairs with two long, rectangular pillows and two cushions to be kept backstage in case the former secretary of state “needed additional back support”
·        A teleprompter and “2-3 downstage scrolling monitors”
·        A special podium (her team rejected the podium that had been set up for her use)
·        Coffee
·        Tea
·        Room temperature sparkling and still water
·        Diet ginger ale
·        CruditĂ©
·        Sliced fruit
·        Approval for any promotional materials
·        Recording is permitted “for archival purposes” and only a two-minute highlight video can be uploaded to YouTube
·        “Prestaged” group photos so that Clinton doesn’t have to wait “for these folks to get their act together.” The former secretary of state “doesn’t like to stand around waiting for people.
