Michelle Obama charged $750,000 to speak for an hour at an event in Germany on Monday.
The famously self-absorbed wife of Barack Obama shared her wisdom about "diversity and inclusion" at the Bits and Pretzels forum during the famous Oktoberfest in Munich.
Sources told the Daily Mail that Obama was a coveted speaker for years, and the event's organizers spared no expense to get her.
"They really pulled out all the stops to get her," a source said. "It's one of the highest fees that they have ever paid."
The audience heard from Obama about how to "push past self-doubt while discussing the importance of inclusivity and diversity."
These are favorite topics for the former First Lady, who frequently talks about herself and the alleged racism she has experienced through the lens of banal self-help psychology. Her husband spoke at the same event three years ago on "entrepreneurial spirit and leadership skills" for an undisclosed fee.
It has become customary for former presidents to cash in on speaking engagements, with the notable exception of Donald Trump, who has gotten poorer since he entered politics and sent the ruling class into a vindictive frenzy.
Since leaving the White House, the Obamas have grabbed millions of dollars through book sales, podcasts, and movies. Michelle is the author of a best-selling memoir, Becoming, and the self-help book The Light We Carry.
With her Oprah-esque popularity, Obama faces ongoing speculation about replacing Joe Biden in 2024, although she has previously said she has no interest in politics.
It is not hard to see why she would prefer her current lifestyle of being paid huge checks to share her vapid insights.
"Diversity and inclusion" has proven to be a lucrative racket, and few have cashed in more successfully than Obama, who is known for airing racial grievances despite her fabulous success.
At an event last year, Obama claimed that Americans weren't "ready" for her African features when her husband won the White House.
The Obamas share a primary residence in Washington D.C., which has led to rumors about Barack's continued role in running the government. They are also the proud owners of a luxurious mansion in Martha's Vineyard.
