You'd bet your ass if I was the president, I'd have two mother farking scoops of ice cream. I'd have so many two scoops of everything, my Secret Service codename would be Kelloggs.

Traveling with furniture is apparently a THING for rich people. I worked for a year at a schmancy hotel on the upper east side of manhattan (it cost $100 per session to use the gym). It wasn't uncommon at all to see packing crates full of furniture on the loading dock that guests would send ahead and have loaded into their rooms. Mattresses, couches, you name it. There was one guest who had a full wardrobe in a storage unit and when she would stay with us, the hotel would have her clothes shipped to her suite and laid out for her.

I don't get that at all. One of my favorite things about going to hotels is staying someplace new. What's the point of spending a gazillion dollars on a top end hotel just to dress it up exactly like the house you just left.

Yes and no. They'll definitely have to dial back the extravagance, but they've built a healthy tourism industry on the backs of 1.8 billion adherents who are religiously compelled to visit SA's black box in the desert. There's a reason they've been frantically bulldozing historical sites in order to build more accommodations.

Yep, those are hotels going up in the background. Saudi Arabia knows the end of oil is coming, they've been planning for it for a while.

Between that, existing investments like sovereign wealth funds, and the fact that something like 33% of the population are "foreigners" who aren't entitled to state benefits, they won't starve.

It's the denying a second scoop to anyone else that marks him as a Twat Deluxe.

Maybe there wasn't enough ice cream for everyone else? It's like Chris Rick says "Dad gets the big  piece of chicken." I suppose they could have started doling out two scoops down the line of succession until they ran totally out.
Are you saying Trump purposefully planned the entire event around him getting 2 scoops and everyone else getting only one? I don't know because I wasn't privy to the CIC's ice cream OPORDER. I guess beyond my pay grade. It seems to me there was enough for everyone to have 1 scoop and he said "Fark a bunch of that, why even be president if I can't have two? I got nukes, but not an extra helping? Nuts to that! And why you're at it, put some nuts to thats.


Well, yes.  That's his whole point.  "Welcome to my dinner.  I get what I want and you get what I give you."

The waiters know well Trump's personal preferences. As he settles down, they bring him a Diet Coke, while the rest of us are served water, with the Vice President sitting at one end of the table. With the salad course, Trump is served what appears to be Thousand Island dressing instead of the creamy vinaigrette for his guests. When the chicken arrives, he is the only one given an extra dish of sauce. At the dessert course, he gets two scoops of vanilla ice cream with his chocolate cream pie, instead of the single scoop for everyone else.

If it was just that he got 2 scoops of ice cream, yeah, that'd be a pretty lame insult.

The insult comes from the fact that he forced everyone else to get 1 scoop, so he would be the one with most scoops.

carnifex2005: ifky: What a real billionaire looks like!

Yup. I remember working at a hospital where a Saudi royal came in previously for cancer treatment. One floor was way more posh than the rest of them and I asked why. Apparently the royal rented out the entire floor for himself and his family and replaced all the bathrooms and renovated all the rooms (and this was already a pretty rich hospital).


Mayo Clinic?  They do a lot of work on Arabian Princes.  I saw the King of Jordan when I lived there, and some other high mucky-mucks.  The only reason the Rochester Airport exists is so that the Royals don't have to sit in a car for an hour, and they've been known to close the airport when they land, the way that they do for the U.S. President.

Beyond a certain point, wealth becomes about eliminating every inconvenience or discomfort in life. The more wealthy you are, the smaller the inconvenience you can eliminate. For the ultra wealthy, that includes sitting on unfamiliar furniture and fumbling around in a hotel closet.

US President travels with 1,500 Secret Service people and staff. Plus 1,500 or more members of the press.

Caesar's Praetorian Guard was much more compact, perhaps half the security apparatus of a POTUS.

The Queen travels with a staff of 8, including a large Lady in Waiting who doubles as a body guard. Most of the Queen's security is provided by the Host Country. In Canada, the RCMP put about 800 on the job. In Australia, they may be able to make do with fewer or to provide more. I don't know. When the Queen is in Canada she is there as the Queen in Right of Canada and Newfoundland, but might do a bit of work on behalf of the UK on the side.

The Pope needs a bit more security and staff to lean on. The diocese he visits provide all the gold and silver decorations unless he carries an emergency kit for special cases of extreme unction and the other various sacraments (I believe there are eight of them. I could be wrong.)

But you could combine the entourage of a Roman Emperor, the Pope, the King, and the Queen, and the POTUS would still win hands down. Try to remember when the POTUS was Obama and this was History's Greatest Scandal for Repugs and other two-faced loonies.

After the broke up she explained him thus:  "All the people around him were either after his money or going to be gone soon the next time he jetted off to wherever his family sent him next, but everywhere he goes, his stuff is there for him."

naughtyrev: Meh, Trump takes his own golden showers when he travels.


Maybe when his relationship with Melania was fresh, perhaps.  These days he samples the local flair.

BigNumber12: JohnCarter: Technically (I believe) the golden escalator is attached to the Kings 747, so it sort of goes with him.

Not at all. It's an entire vehicle, that they use a separate cargo aircraft to ship from place to place ahead of him.

The 1500 follow ons are so no one notices the couple dozen mistresses.

Schmerd1948: Be fun to see the liquor bill.


The liquor bills are paid though the hookers so there is no paper trail

::shrug:: Sounds like any royal 'progress.' Golden escalator (please don't be a euphemism, please don't be a euphemism!) aside, sounds not different from when Henry the VIII went a-traveling.

ifky: What a real billionaire looks like!


Yup. I remember working at a hospital where a Saudi royal came in previously for cancer treatment. One floor was way more posh than the rest of them and I asked why. Apparently the royal rented out the entire floor for himself and his family and replaced all the bathrooms and renovated all the rooms (and this was already a pretty rich hospital).

What exactly do the 1500 people actually do?
