White House government slum housing


So the Donald is making noise, whining about being forced to live in that shack we all know as the White House.

Too low brow, I assume?

Oh. Wait, right. It is government housing, don't ya know? A black man lived in it after all.

So he wants to spend as much time as possible in Trump Tower. This, of course, means the Secret Service whose job it is to protect the new resident and his family will have to rent apartments in Trump Tower so they can be as close to them as possible.

I don't know how many of you have been in the White House. I have. It is beautiful, as it should be. The president's quarters are every bit as extravagant in which we would like for our President to reside. But evidently not good enough for the Donald.

Now, think about this for a minute. The man who has not paid a dime in income taxes for the past 20 years is going to charge the government for the right to protect him because it is too inconvenient, too low brow for him to live in the people's home, the one that has been good enough for every President since 1801. 

It has been estimated it will cost more than a million dollars a day to host Secret Service agents in the Trump Tower. So much for a smaller, more efficient, less costly government.

Way to go, voters. Ever classy. If only the Electoral College had enough of a conscience and courage to refuse to confirm the election results.

Come January I will still be saying "not my President." It sure is going to be a long four years.
