From Robert Gehl: Well, now the world knows that Barack Obama is a greedy sellout to Wall Street…and Debbie Wasserman Schultz is none too pleased.
We all know that the former president – who attacked rich Wall Street fat cats every chance he got while in the White House – is now taking $400,000 to speak at a conference full of rich Wall Street fat cats.
Screaming hypocrisy? Hoo boy, you bet it is.
Bernie Sanders knows it. Elizabeth Warren knows it. Well, everyone knows it really.
And Debbie Wasserman Schultz…well, she doesn’t like that everyone else knows it. In fact, she’d be perfectly happy if you kept your thoughts to yourself, thankyouverymuch.
Speaking with CNN’s Erin Burnett Tuesday night, the former director of the Democratic National Committee angrily told the American people they should just “MYOB” (the acronym the kids are using these days for “mind your own business”).
“Of all people to … to question … their commitment to getting money out of politics, to really making sure that we restored integrity to the political finance process,” Wasserman Schultz complained.
Burnett challenged this, and Wasserman Schultz was not happy.
“It is none of anyone’s business what someone who is a member of the private sector decides to accept in terms of compensation, with all due respect to anyone who chooses to comment publicly on what Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, or anyone earns as a member of the private sector. It’s just, like, M Y O B,” she shot back. “It’s none of your business.”
Among those people who apparently don’t know how to “mind their own business,” Warren said the $400,000 largesse was “troubling” and Bernie Sanders said it was “unfortunate.”
