Chelsea Clinton gets $250K/year Expedia board seat, just 'cuz



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.

Since then she’s helped with her mom’s presidential campaign and sits on the board of the School of American Ballet. Celebrity Net Worth puts her net worth at about $15 million.

It’s been reported that Mrs. Clinton is now eyeing her own run in politics. She’s releasing a children’s propaganda book “She Persisted” that will “tell the stories of 13 women who overcame immense opposition to achieve their goals,” Entertainment Weekly wrote.

Among the women are liberal icon Sonya Sotomayor, and a “surprise” cameo by an unnamed women — we can only guess who.

5. Ivanka...

Graduated from Wharton and was involved in the family business her entire life.

She then started her own companies and made millions.

Chelsea...was the daughter of the Clintons...and probably Webb Hubbell. She was never around business and has little understaning of how they function effectively.

You put Clinton on your board when you need a Yes Man.

You put Invanka on your board when your goal is to make money.

3. If people are looking for creative ways to put money into Clinton hands,

Maybe she is considering another run. I would have thought losing to Trump once was enough for her.

17. Its a completely valid point relative to income inequality.....

Chelsea is just one example of an executive or board level person who is paid a ridiculous amount of money for a minimal amount of work. And of course, cronyism exists, and is often found right along with lopsided executive compensation.

That there is this much money to throw around to the Clinton kids, the Biden kids, the Trump kids etc. for doing very little more than nothing.....but there is not enough money to pay a janitor, for example, 15 bucks an hour is just fucked up, IMO.

Regarding Chelsea specifically, I feel like the righty take on this would be that if the market is willing to pay her this much, good for her.....no?

Chelsea was born in to the Clinton brand. The free market makes her worth more than me for that single fact alone. That's how free markets work.......Trump would no doubt agree.

21. Nice try, but your logic is fucked up

Chelsea deserves more money whatever she does because she is a Clinton? Wanna explain that one?

What are you talking about when you say Trump's kids are overpaid?

22. I didn't say Chelsea earns more or deserves more.

I said her name makes her worth more....to people or companies or organizations who would be willing to pay her for whatever reason. Her name is a brand much like Trump, IMO. Like the kennedys, etc.

My point is merely that she is a Clinton. Whether we like it or not, she's going to make bank regardless of what she does because shes a clinton. I do not agree with this or think it is right, but I think it is reality.

25. Anybody that valuable should be on commission, not a salary

"I didn't say Chelsea earns more or deserves more."
"I said her name makes her worth more."

Same thing

I will avoid business with a company that hires her. That makes her "brand" worth less.

Your "theory" is elitist

How does this apply to Trump's kids?

27. I don't think Chelsea is sweating your boycott, but good luck.

If you think the theory is wrong and elitist when applied to a Clinton, you would likely feel the same way when applying it to a Bush or a Trump etc.

It applies, in my opinion, to Trump's kids the same way it applies to Chelsea Clinton, or Biden's son etc. etc.

They were born into a powerful family, and their career trajectory and earning trajectory is advantaged as a result.

Its not a new or complicated theory in any way whatsoever. And it certainly did not originate with me.

And there was no accusation. You are just so defensive and spooked, probably due to the news lately, that you are jumping at shadows.

Have a great day.

24. What happened to all her fizzy hair. Being a natural curly myself, I liked that look.

I'm all for capitalism, absolutely, but this woman has never done a days work in her life, besides pushing out those babies. And she probably knows fuck-all about stuff. She's just the daughter of that 'fucking hillbilly' and crooked Hillary. It reminds me of the British Royal Family, Long Live the Queen. Soon as those nippers see the light of day they have to made, no matter how stupid they are (Prince Harry).
