About 400,000 Government employees furloughed without pay.

He cancels a trip for a Congressional Delegation to a war zone, outing vital national security secrets in the process.

Does nobody in this White House read history?

On update, thanks to HipChick at Democratic Underground for the heads up on this billionaire shenanigans on the tax payer’s dime.


Adding insult to injury, not only must the security detail assigned to Melania work without pay, they must also cover the expenses of travel, meals, and lodging during this pleasure trip. Caligula’s security detail went without pay for a time. It didn’t work out well for him.

  1. At one time, I felt sorry for Melania Trump; not anymore. She exploits being First lady(?) as does her toddler husband, I am fed up with their spoiled, childish antics.
