Grace and wit? Are we talking about that lying sack of shit Jay Carney?
Former White House press secretary Jay Carney is now available for paid speaking gigs after signing on as a client of the Washington Speakers Bureau.
It’s the first post-West Wing career move for Carney, who stepped away from the briefing room podium late last month after more than three years fielding questions from the press.
It’s not clear how much booking Carney will cost — according to a posting on the Washington Speakers Bureau’s website, “fees vary based on event location” — but other top former administration officials have pocketed tens of thousands of dollars per appearance or more.
Carney also likely received a signing bonus to join the firm, which represents both his wife, ABC News journalist Claire Shipman, and fellow former White House spokesmen Ari Fleischer and Mike McCurry.
“Jay Carney faced the world and White House press corps each day with characteristic grace, wit and aplomb,” the advertisement for Carney’s services reads. “Today, he brings to audiences his insight and extensive credentials in the White House and with TIME magazine in discussing domestic and global current events, the 2014 mid-terms elections, and the race for the White House in 2016.”
Anyone paying this clown more than five cents should have their head examined.
