Former President Barack Obama went to Milan, Italy to talk at the Seeds&Chips Global Food Innovation Summit about climate change and its effect on food production. Mike Opelka was astounded by the $3.2 million pay out for the speech to the liberal politician, who once famously said "At a certain point, I think you've made enough money."

On today's "Pure Opelka," Mike marveled at the hypocrisy of discussing America's food waste while regularly commanding more than $400,000 a speech. The Milan total is the highest Obama has received so far. It is not clear if his private jet, hotel rooms and 14-car convoy were included in that total.

The internet, in its infinite wisdom, is instead discussing the former president's unbuttoned shirt.
