Michelle & Barack Obama Rack Up $600,000 Together Per Appearance, Average
It cost as much to book Michelle Obama for a speaking engagement as it is to book former President George W. Bush. According to Axios, who posted the average cost to ‘rent-a-president’ for an appearance. Woo!
It cost exactly double to book her husband, former President Barack Obama. His average booking cost falls around the $400,000 mark. Dang, the Obamas must be racking up. Just last week Michelle Obama appeared at the annual American Institute of Architects conference to speak about her accomplishments, such as the “Let Girls Learn” initiative that is reportedly in jeopardy from the current administration, but also to speak about life after the White House, according to The Grio.
At the event, Michelle said:
“Barack and I have been in public service our whole lives,” she explained. “Public service will always be in our blood.”
And money will always be in the bank! Ka-ching.
