Debbie: Obama’s $400k speech fees ‘none of your business’

Debbie Wasserman Schultz created a new standard for public debate that will undoubtedly only apply to liberals: If it happens in the private sector, it stays in the private sector.

The former chair of the DNC bristled on CNN Tuesday at a line of questioning over the appropriateness and hypocrisy of Barack Obama, a tough talker on Wall Street, recently accepting $400,000 for a speech to Wall Street.

She shook her head as host Erin Burnett played clips of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren publicly criticizing Obama’s decision.

Schultz responded, “Look it is none of anyone’s business what someone who is a member of the private sector decides to accept as 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 NYOB! It’s none of your business.”

Why is cheating, lying DWS still an item? Maybe it's just to keep her in the spotlight until her reward comes and she can be Hillary's jail roommate.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz would be better off if she just faded into obscurity. Why would anyone want to hear from her after her atrocious behaviors during the primaries and before? She's a disgrace to any affiliation!
