The “American Politics” actors are negotiating their 2018 salaries. Republican and Democrats are joining efforts to get a pay rise, menacing to go on strike if their demands are not met.
“We are the most watched show in the world”, Jared Kushner says. “Yet, we don’t see the results of our hard work. It is not charity to pay us properly. We work and bring money to the producers. It is more difficult than it seems to be entertaining at work as well as in our private lives and on social media. Paying us consequently is the only reasonable thing to do if the producers want us to keep on doing it”.
Ivanka and Melania Trump are asking to receive 1.5 million $ per episode, which would make them the highest paid TV actresses in front of Kaley Cuoco and Sofia Vergara.
“The subject is a bit touchy”, an insider says. “Ivanka’s wealth is way bigger than Melania’s, mostly due to the money her father gave to her. There is also the brand of clothes and shoes she owns and promote during the “American Politics” show. Melania had asked for more money per episode than Ivanka at first. That made Donald laugh a lot. She has since accepted to lower her expectations and be paid the same as Ivanka”.
Donald Trump has demanded to receive 13 million $ at least per episode. This would make him the best paid TV actor this year (and ever), way in front of Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki.
“Nancy Pelosi should receive 900 000 $ per episode. Hillary Clinton has demanded to receive 500 000 $”, the insider explains. “Even though she doesn’t appear on the show anymore, she is still mentioned a lot. Producers have to pay for the right to use her name and image”.
