Barack Obama paid another $  400,000, this time for a 90-minute speech to advertisersFormer President Barack Obama is making the most of his first 100 days out of office and is already set to make at least $ 800,000 from just two speeches this year. Mr Obama met up with presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin on Thursday at the A&E Networks advertising upfront at the Pierre Hotel and was rewarded $ 400,000 for a 90-minute interview with her in front of advertisers for the cable network. When asked by Ms Goodwin how he handled frustrations in the Oval Office, Mr Obama took the chance to joke about his successor, saying, “for starters, by not having a Twitter,” according to the New York Post.
