"Trump most commonly opted to borrow place settings from the official Clinton china set for her White House events, the two Trump-hosted state dinners included. "

There is nothing ORIGINAL about Melania, is there?

I doubt cost was a concern. By some fluke, the process of creating the collection happened to be grift-proof.

When you're a gold-digging soft-core porn chick, who marries fat disgusting rich guys for money and status, it's hard to pretend to care about this kind of stuff.

Her thumbs? I think that's about it. Everything else has been shaved, tucked, peeled. and colored.

I assume the reasoning is either (a) THEY had to pay for it out of pocket, or (b) knowing who we're talking about, lots of gold was involved.

"China" collection? You mean "Chinet," right?

"Trump most commonly opted to borrow place settings from the official Clinton china set for her White House events, the two Trump-hosted state dinners included."

Problem is before using them you have to wipe the servers.

Let me make sure I'm summarizing this right:

- this is not paid by the government but by a nonprofit that relies on outside donors.
- they all typically cost in the same ballpark.
- the association balked on costs in the past, where in the Bush administration they covered the basics but the extra Laura wanted was paid from the White House budget instead.
- Melania took forever, and ultimately decided on something extraordinarily priced.
- Association balked at the price.
- Donald said if you don't pay for it, then we're not getting anything.
- They didn't pay, so he pulled the plug.

This is completely believable, and summarizes Trump in a nutshell.

All his signatures look like little klan rallies anyway so it's no loss.

Wait, W's was $490k, Obama's was $350k, but trumps was too expensive?  WTF were trump's going to be made out of, solid gold??

/They probably wanted solid gold.

They were willing to compromise with gold dipped ones but the cost was still too high.

Maybe Melania did it to piss Donald off.  He was President but still had to eat off the plates that Hillary picked.
 
2021-01-21 1:40:38 PM  
Right.  These Trump gorillas don't use china or silverware anyway.  They barely walk upright.
 
2021-01-21 1:40:40 PM  
the 3rd lady didn't have time to pick china patterns, she had to keep tabs on the 2 immature boys in her family, her "special" secret service detail, and still check in with vlad a few times a day!

The White House Historical Society would have paid for it if it was under $600k.

I'm trying to figure out how many state dinners the Trump administration actually had, at least that would've required china & silverware. Wikipedia says he had just two in four years, so I guess the times I heard Trump rewarding someone with a Big Mac meal didn't actually count.

Ophaelin: Here's the Trump Table in the China Room

[Fark user image 634x842]


used to carpool to work every day, and there was always a car when we arrived in the parking lot that was full of so many McDonalds wrappers , cups, fry containers etc, the pile was up to the glove box in front, basically there was a space for a person to squeeze into the driver seat, but otherwise it was a 2-3 foot thick garbage pile.

took about a year to figure out who it belonged to...wasn't a human whale as assumed, but a dude who had TBI in an auto accident and afterwards went totally frootloops.

In other news, I was this many days old when I learned the White House has an official China Room and each administration gets to design their own.

Will President Biden's have the Trans AM logo subtly incorporated?

I would actually like to see that in person.

Eh, the less evidence we leave in the WH for future generations to know he was there the better.

Can we refuse the hanging of his portrait?

EL EM: I doubt cost was a concern. By some fluke, the process of creating the collection happened to be grift-proof.


I could totally believe cost. Obama came in just under $400,000.  W's was closer to $500,000.  I could easily imagine the Trumps coming up with 24 karat gold inlays and such that drove the budget to $1.2 million, and the non-profit association said, "uh, thanks, but that's a little pricey for us. Could you either come up with the difference, or come up with a new design?"  With the answers being: "Of f*cking course not! And, no, if we can't have that exact setting, then we really don't care, do you?"

This.

Melania probably wanted something so breathtakingly hideous, it's just as well they never paid for it.
