Leonardo DiCaprio used a standard, office file folder for his climate march sign, lol
Look, let me start by saying Leonardo DiCaprio has done a lot to combat climate change. He produced a climate change documentary titled Before the Flood that dropped in 2016. He has a foundation "dedicated to the long-term health and wellbeing of all Earth?s inhabitants." The foundation has given $61 million to causes that align with that mission statement. He talks about climate change all the time. And, also, he was among the ~200,000 people in Washington, D.C. on Saturday to protest a White House that very much does not share his (scientifically valid) concern for the damage people are doing to the climate. SEE ALSO: Trump's big EPA website change should make you furious It's just kind of funny that the man who has done all of the above couldn't get a sign for the protest that was bigger than a piece of computer paper. Like, at what point did DiCaprio realize he wanted a sign? Did he wake up in a hotel and say, "Shit, I forgot people were going to write things on posters and walk around with them at this thing I'm going to today," and then he went to the nearest Staples, a Staples with markers but without posterboard? Did the hotel have a green and a red marker and a file folder somewhere? Does he keep these things in a bag? Anyway, it's just funny.

Barack Obama draws criticism for $400,000 Wall Street speech fee
Barack Obama has drawn criticism for accepting an invitation to speak at a Wall Street conference for almost half a million dollars. The former President will receive $400,000, equal to his annual pay as President, for a speech at Cantor Fitzgerald's healthcare conference as a keynote speaker in September. Mr Obama's fee is nearly twice as much as Hillary Clinton has charged private companies for similar events.
