(The Raw Story)   Sure, Jared and Ivanka cost US taxpayers at least $400k in ski trips so far this year, but Obama once put his feet up on the Oval Office desk so that totally justifies this expense   ( rawstory.com) divider line

"Equipment costs were close to $22,000 - to accompany the family on the slopes, the Secret Service had to buy lift tickets and rent skis and boots."

That's $3143 per day for boot's, skis, poles, and lift tickets. At $100 a day cost when you get a 7 day lift pass and a per day premium ski package with helmet cost at just under $80.

Just what the hell else equipment were they renting? Snow bunnies?

There might be other things they do to secure a place than rent some boots and ride the lift.because there is a lot of aerial and perimeter to account for out there....but sure the equipment rental is going to keep you up at night?

And yet they're spending our money on their shiat.

spending money on welfare == 'wasted money'
spending money on SNAP == 'wasted money'.
spending money on Puerto Rico recovery efforts == 'wasted money'.

spending money sending the kids off to ski weekends == 'saving money'.

Wasn't the secret service literally buying hookers and blow in South America under the Obama admin? Seems to me there's a fundamental problem with the executive security organisation in terms of accountability with taxpayer funds. This with the Trumps is just another symptom of a deeper disease. Well, that and the Trumps are the poster family  fpr graft, of course.

$65,000 was spent carting Eric Trump's dogs around... They're not even human.

Next we're going to find out that 20k or so was spent on veterinary bills... they're not even human.

got me.  all I know is that we're watching Trump's kids spend taxpayer money on rich people vacations and nobody seems upset about it.

also - every time trump or a trump staffer gets caught stealing from the cookie jar, the trumpers show up and blame Hillary and/or Obama.  its getting really f*cking WEIRD seeing that all the time.

And some of the internal problems with the USSS come from the fact that they're overstretched, thanks to Dubya moving them from Treasury to DHS and hitting them with some serious mission creep.

They don't ski with the peasants of Aspen and likely rented Snow Cats and guides to go back country. That can easily add up.

You can almost hear the gears turning in Trump's business offices as someone there reads about what the government is pumping into these ski holidays and starts crunching numbers on whether buying a Colorado ski adventure business to add to the Trump stable. After all, what the Fed is paying Trump businesses for golf cart hire alone is phenomenal.

Combine that with chasing the extended Trumpdashian clan around the world's resort community and it's a problem. Sure hope this doesn't result in some kind of security breach. That'd really be a shame.

Trump never said his Cabinet would be saving the Taxpayers' money.  The money saved is theirs, not ours.

No, he had a problem with the optics of Tom Price's expenses.

They were all approved at the time. It's only when they were reported on did Trump have a problem.

As opposed to the Secret Service buying hookers in Maryland under the Trump Administration?  The agent accused was directly on Pence's protective detail.  Oh, Mother indeed.

You see, it's part of the caste - or 'class' - system: those with less class are more important and revered than more modest, decent humans.

I don't really approve. Mostly because I'd rather have ketchup and mayo on a burger (barbecue and specialty burgers excluded). Mustard is for hot dogs and brats without peppers and onions.

$400,000. That's my entire salary plus overtime for the last five and a half years I've worked at my current company.
Yet the reich wing b*tched and pissed about the Obamas going out for dinner and paying for everything but the secret service from their own pockets.
F*ck these grifter motherf*ckers.
