You want they should squat down in a bunker just to save a dollars, subby?

Sounds to me like $7100 in sensible stimulus spending. This isn't just trickle down economics, this is full-flush economics. Buy American, hire American, shiat American.

Why does the Secret Service need to rent portable toilets in the first place?  I got to assume that a Trump golf course has flush toilets, and even if it doesn't Trump himself doesn't really strike me as the camping type.

No wonder the common folk relate to him.

The agency signed a contract with Imperial Restrooms to provide trailers on Aug. 3.

This company played right into Trumps hands with this name. I bet they changed it from Pee-Pee, Inc or Plop Johns when they heard he was getting bids.

First off, seven large is Trump chump change when talking about the expenses of presidential travel.

Also, I recall reading an article about all modern presidents traveling with their own mobile toilets, especially when overseas.

Apparently it's more secure and they don't have to worry about foreign governments analyzing presidential poop to gain intelligence on the president's health.

Seriously.

I'll try to find the link to that article.

Karac: Why does the Secret Service need to rent portable toilets in the first place?


FTA: The Secret Service is required to pay their own way, even at Trump Organization properties, because the agency is forbidden from accepting funding or resources that have not been appropriated by Congress, including hotel rooms. The regulations are meant to guard the agency from any possible compromise of its protective mission.

At a guess: the Secret Service can sweep and subsequent restrict access to those portable toilets to keep them secure, without inconvenience to the other visitors to the venue, to ensure that President Trump does not encounter a quite literal bomb while dropping more figurative bombs in the can and on Twitter.
It makes sense if you're professionally paranoid.

That requirement would only apply if Trump properties charge per flush.  I am unaware of any hotel or golf course in the world that puts a guard on the door to the john to make sure only paying members or guests can use them.

You seem to be misunderstanding.

The problem isn't that the hotel or golf course puts a guard on the door to the john to make sure only paying members or guests -- and not members of the secret service -- can use them.

The problem is more that most hotels and golf courses would object to the Secret Service putting a guard on the door to a john to make sure that only the President and other people people pre-cleared by the Secret Service -- and not most paying members nor guests -- can use them.

The port-a-shiatters weren't brought for Trump to use; they were there for the Secret Service agents.  You really think that on his own golf course Trump didn't already have his own private toilet no one else was allowed to touch?

And they don't want people getting ahold of his poop or pee.  Could test it for stuff.

Obama prefers Grey Poupon. Trump uses White Poupon Black...

...When he's not using Gold Pisson, that is.
 
2017-08-25 02:27:51 PM  
Hey Secret Service.  You're tasked with putting your life on the line for this guy.  You're also not getting overtime pay because they're using that money to rent luxury porta-poties for him.
 
2017-08-25 02:28:19 PM  
I guess I'm less annoyed about porta potties than the rest of what's going on. There is way better things to be outraged about.
 
2017-08-25 02:28:46 PM  
I mean, they aren't gold plated or anything, they are just trailers with bathrooms.  I wouldn't really expect them to use just regular porta-potties.  This article has failed to get my dander up.
 
2017-08-25 02:28:58 PM  
The Secret Service clearly is not good enough to crap in Trump's toilets. They didn't pay the 200 grand each for a membership so no farking flush toilets for them.
Trump to the SS: They can go fark themselves.
I wonder if that will blunt their reaction when a  active shooter emerges from among the White House and Cabinet staff.

Ugh...I am really getting tired of spending each and every day being outraged at the constant assault on our country and our values by the rotten orange that currently occupies the White House. Even once he's gone, he'll still have gotten away with coming in and grifting the hell out of taxpayers, pocketing as much money as he can and using his position to enrich himself in every way he can at every possible opportunity.

I'm pretty sure that Thomas Crapper himself wouldn't swallow that.

HoboCop: I mean, they aren't gold plated or anything, they are just trailers with bathrooms.  I wouldn't really expect them to use just regular porta-potties.  This article has failed to get my dander up.


 Amen. I've used these "luxury" bathroom trailers before. They are nice, and certainly a step up. You wash your hands inside, not at a plastic stand 6 feet away.

I wish this were the most pressing thing to be upset over. Oh, how glorious a day when a few thousand dollars spent in rentals is a scandal. Instead... well... I'll ignore this as not a priority.
 
2017-08-25 02:37:53 PM  
Oh come on.  With a million things to legitimately attack Trump on, this?  If Trump (or any president) decides he wants to finish a donut and delay a meeting 10 minutes it probably costs the taxpayers $20k, I mean with the dozens and dozens of people involved, potential overtime, etc.  It's just meaningless to single out renting toilets.  I'm not saying you don't report on excesses like this, or vacations, or travel, of course you do, but roll them up and make them relative to past presidents so I know that this in particular is worthy of legitimate outrage.
 
2017-08-25 02:39:29 PM  
I mean, to try to put this into some perspective. Imagine touring a waste water treatment plant and at the solid waste tank you pick out the smallest turd floating there to be outraged about when there's a giant Russia shaped one a solid 114 Kourics in weight plowing around in there.

You're probably right. Trump probably submitted a larger sewage plan than he actually built, and the toilets are probably at risk of overflowing if 20-30 more SS agents use the facilities for a week. Or he used shiatty parts or something. THAT would fit his unblemished record for being a total asshole to everyone.
 
2017-08-25 02:50:02 PM  
I have a simple solution...
If Trump wants to hang out at one of his properties, doesn't matter which one, in the interest of security, shut it down and clear it out!
Mar-a-Lago for the weekend? Close it, cancel any events, throw out all the guests. The president can be be secure in his own little world and eat his lunch all by himself.
Golf course? Clear it out, no one else allowed on the property! He can play with his balls in private...
Trump Tower? Empty the farking thing, the President is coming!
 
2017-08-25 02:59:55 PM  
$7100 for 18 days' rental doesn't seem so bad, depending on how many agents are on site at any given time. I'd like to think that we can do better than basic portajohns for the men and women who are expected to put their lives on the line to save the life of someone as useless as Donald Trump.

Of course, the larger issue is why Donald Trump feels the need to spend so much time at resorts which he himself owns and is currently profiting on, when there are existent facilities like Camp David which are already set up to accommodate the President and a large traveling staff as well as Secret Service agents.

I'm sure one of those fiscal conservatives in Congress can explain how tax cuts will help pay for everything.

"I want each of them to have a golden eagle on top."

"But, Mr. President..."

"Make that two eagles."

"It wouldn't be possible..."

"Three, three eagles, I want three eagles on top of each porta-potty, you want to go for four?"

And yet another aide joins the I-hope-he-dies-I-hope-he-dies-DIE-DIE-DIE club.
