USC Charges Students for Nancy Pelosi Speech
Really? Liberals love to nickel and dime their minions.
Check it out:
Students at the University of California Berkeley are being charged an extra $10 to hear Pelosi give the commencement speech. The Washington Free Beacon: “Berkeley Charges Graduating Students for Commencement Ceremony Featuring Nancy Pelosi — The University of California, Berkeley is charging its students $10 each to attend their own commencement address that will be delivered by Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.). … ‘[The money is] to absorb the cost of commencement,’ Lila Blanco, director of external relations and the Office of Protocol at the university, said in an interview with The Daily Californian, the school’s official newspaper.” So is Pelosi charging Berkeley so much they have to find a way to recoup the expense?
There’s other things about Pelosi here. From The Daily Californian, which is the school newspaper that mentions they have to charge 10 bucks to defray the cost of the commencement, there’s a little thing: “10 things you need to know about Nancy Pelosi before she speaks at UC Berkeley’s commencement.
“1. She keeps Ghirardelli chocolate stocked in her office at all times.
“2. Pelosi is worth a boatload of money.
“3. She’s known to eat ice cream for breakfast.
“4. Pelosi knows Brad Pitt.
“5. Pelosi has appeared on both Top Chef and 30 Rock.
“6. Five years ago, she made a YouTube video with her cats.
“7. Diane von Furstenberg created a tote bag in support of Pelosi.
“8. She’s a big fan of 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s tattooed arms.
“9. Pelosi supports Kentucky Fried Chicken over Chick-Fil-A.
“10. Her mother wanted her to be a nun.
So that’s what the students are being told about Pelosi, 10 things the graduating seniors at Berkeley need to know about Pelosi before she shows up to give her giant commencement address, which, again, is costing them an additional $10 over what it would normally be.
