Ironically, just today the Donald can’t say enough great things about the Secret Service. He said:
“First of all, the Secret Service is unbelievable,”
“I’m the best thing that’s ever happened to the secret service. Because I go around, mark and all these guys, I go around saying how great they are. They are great. These are great, great people.”
In light of the scandalous behavior of the Secret Service, the only conclusion that is possible is that Trump relates to men who solicit prostitutes, exchange pornographic material, masturbate in their office in front of women, and who use government computers to hire male prostitutes. Now we know Trump’s definition of “great, great people.”
Trump also said he has the “common sense” to excuse him from reading any national media sources.
It seems Trump’s common sense has failed him. Yesterday
, Radar Online, has reported outrageous things, confirmed in government documents, about the corruption within the Secret Service. I wouldn’t expect that Trump or his staff would read my blog, but surely they consult articles on the internet??? Today several media sources have reported on the story:
Maybe Donald Trump doesn’t have the common sense he thinks!!!
It’s not surprising that Trump is singing the praises of the Secret Service. CNBC reports that the price to taxpayers for the protection of Presidential candidates is running at an all time high. The amount the United States allocates to protect its presidential candidates has climbed steeply this year, surpassing $200 million. Candidates’ use of the taxpayer-funded Secret Service has come under question in recent days. Donald Trump
left the campaign trail for the grand opening of a golf course that bears his name. That means that we the United States taxpayers are paying to protect Trump, while on a trip for promote a person venture, overseas, when he holds no political office.
In fiscal year 2012, when only the GOP had a competitive primary, $113 million was appropriated for presidential candidate protection. In fiscal year 2008, the last time there was no incumbent running for president, President George W. Bush requested $85 million for presidential candidates’ protection — in turn, more than double what he had requested in 2004,The New York Times reported.
Trump is certainly not the first candidate to travel abroad during a campaign. In 2012, Mitt Romney traveled to London, Israel and Poland on what was widely panned as a gaffe-filled tour. Barack Obama traveled to Israel as well, in 2008. However, while Obama and Romney spent their trips meeting with political leaders and burnishing their foreign policy credentials, Trump appears to be traveling in a nonpolitical capacity. He has no meetings scheduled with government or political leaders, according to The New York Times.
