Yes if Trump chooses Giuliani for SOS, it looks like he is a man with very expensive taste.

The Clintons made huge $ for talking, but do the American people feel the same way about the man who was in charge during the 2001 world trade center attack?





According to one speaking contract published at the time, Giuliani required clients pay for meals and lodging for himself and four travel companions. Giuliani required a two-bedroom suite (with a king-sized bed) for his overnight stays; a suite preferably located on an upper floor with a balcony. Clients also had to pay for four additional rooms to house Giuliani’s entourage.

As for travel, the contract stipulated that clients “should provide Mr. Giuliani with first class travel expenses for up to 5 people to include a private plane.” What kind of private plane? “Please note that the private aircraft MUST BE a Gulfstream IV or bigger.”
Note that along with the $11 million in speaking fees Giuliani pocketed in 2006, he also earned $8 million on the speech circuit in 2002. If Giuliani was able to average between $8 and $11 million in speaking fees from 2002 until he announced his candidacy in early 2007, he would have earned more than $40 million giving speeches in the five years prior to his White House campaign. (Speaking fees represented only part of his income.)

That’s newsworthy about that today? Simply the fact that back in 2007 when a wealthy Republican became a presidential hopeful the Beltway press didn’t care that he’d earned an eight-figure income giving 45-minute speeches. (With an additional 15 minutes allotted for Q & A.) Indeed, Giuliani’s financial revelations barely registered with pundits and reporters who gave the information little time and attention. The Washington Post, for example, published just three mentions of Giuliani’s multimillion-dollar “speaking fees.”

The press certainly never elevated the issue to a defining narrative for the Republican’s campaign. Perhaps they realized there was nothing intrinsically wrong with a speaker being paid what organizations are willing to offer them.

Compare that collective shoulder shrug with the nearly month-long media fascination still churning over Hillary Clinton’s speaking fees; a fascination that’s part of a larger, misguided media obsession over the issue of Clinton wealth. (“Speaking fee” articles and columns published by Post so far this year regarding Clinton? Twenty-eight.)

As much as I can't stand Rudy, he did clean up New York by toppling crime families and stop and frisk proceedures. He's a friend of Trumps so it's no shock he would be included in the plans. Just always seemed off to me with the crossdressing and lispy speech, never a personal favorite of mine. That's politics

Huh? These speaking contracts were made with government agencies? Where does it say that?

A guy on his own speaking tour can ask whatever he likes from his clients.

Sec of State doesnt get to contract for private jets and multiple suites with a view.

Im certain accommodations are plenty wasteful and lavish for any SoS.

How did Hillary travel?

ETA i read somewhere Kerry is going to the South Pole today...on the taxpayers dime.
