Fiery Judge Jeanine: Obama's Big-Money Wall St. Speech Is the 'Ultimate in Hypocrisy'
Judge Jeanine Pirro said this morning it's the "ultimate in hypocrisy" for former President Obama to accept $400,000 to speak to a Wall Street firm.
Fox Business Network's Charlie Gasparino broke the story this week about Obama's September speech on health care to Cantor Fitzgerald LP.
Eric Schultz said in 2008, then-candidate Obama pulled in more money than any candidate in history, and went on to "implement the toughest reforms on Wall Street since FDR."
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has since said she's "troubled" by the arrangement, calling the influence of big money on politicians "a snake that slithers" through D.C.

The judge sounded off on "Fox & Friends" on the Obama speech, saying not only is he a "hypocrite," but he also "lied to the American people" numerous times.
Pirro and Steve Doocy noted that Obama is getting a $65 million advance for his memoirs and recalled that in 2010 - while discussing Wall Street firms - he said, "I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money."
The New York Post reports that Obama pulled in another $400,000 for an appearance Thursday in New York, where he was interviewed for 90 minutes by presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin.
Watch her comments above and don't miss "Justice" on Saturday and Sunday at 9pm ET on Fox News Channel! Judge Pirro will talk to DHS Secretary John Kelly.
