Gibbs mocks Steele’s speaking fees

The White House quickly pounced after news broke that Michael Steele was charging up to $20,000 in speaking fees in addition to his official gig, mocking the RNC chairman for delivering criticisms of the health care bill for profit and calling his reasoning ‘”delusional.”

Pressed about a remark Steele made Monday, in which he insisted Democrats were “flipping the bird” to the public in the form of health care legislation, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs asked how much money Steele was paid for “that interview.” Later when a cell phone ring interrupted the briefing, and someone cried out that Steele was on the line, Gibbs insisted it would cost $30,000 to answer that call.

Leave it to Michael Steele to bring us some good holiday cheer.
