So a congressional fact-finding mission to a war zone is not okay during a government shutdown is wrong, but a personal trip on the taxpayer’s dime to a resort is A-Okay?

First Lady Melania Trump reportedly chartered a military plane to Florida on the same day President Donald Trump canceled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s trip to save government money.

On Thursday — the 28th day of the government shutdown— Melania Trump flew to the private resort of Mar-a-Lago, Florida, from Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, on an Air Force jet, NBC reported.

The reported trip came hours after Donald Trump told Pelosi he was canceling her trip to Afghanistan “in light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay.”

So does this mean that if the Speaker wanted to visit Mar-a-Lago she could take a military plane?

By the way, Pelosi actually looked into taking a commercial flight to Afghanistan after Trump canceled her flight.

However, it was decided that since Trump had also announced her intention to visit that it was much too dangerous. 

It should be noted that the House Speaker is supposed to only fly on military planes for their own safety.

    Well, we can’t allow Melania to fly on a commercial plane. She might escape.

    She should have to pay back the $3.6 million for the one way flight and make her stay down there or fly commercial until the government opens.

    (The photo should have been the one with the” I don’t care jacket”)

    Hope someone asks her exactly why Monday is a holiday:)

    Shh.. don’t tell trump Pelosi is second in line for the presidency, something he probable doesn’t know because he has no clue how the US government works…however the russian dictatorship he knows all about.

      I think he knows. That’s why he encouraged/forced her to fly commercial then released the details to the public.

      Might want to tamp it down, just a bit.

        Melania is an uncaring, intentionally mean woman who disgusts me as much as a pile of human feces left in front of a beautiful statue or building does, because the juxtaposition of something so disgusting in front of what should be pure beauty is appalling and inappropriate and ruins the setting it is placed in for everyone who encounters it. She should realize how much she is reviled because of her inadequacies in filing the position she illegitimately occupies. She should hang her head in shame and return to a more suitable setting, perhaps the one she originated in? Not only is she inadequate in her public position, but it seems that in the childbearing, and the nurturing a successful adolescent on the way to successful adulthood, she is also deficient. Under the sentiments that she has espoused via her disgusting spouse, the child is not an American citizen and should return with her.

        Not the OP, but I gift wrapped the sentiment for ya’, Gryphen. Happy?

    G. Can understand that anger tho. Trump and company assaults all that is decent about america. Behavior displayed bt potus and flotus is like from a foriegn country with dictatorship not a democracy.

    But Melanoma had to visit Pablo the under paid illegal alien pool boy this weekend, who cares if an extra Coast Guard cutter and crew had to protect her from the sea while she swallowed Pablo’s illegal semen! I’m sure she shouted out “Let them eat cake” as Pablo’s stiff, long, erection plowed into her over and over!

      Extra and unpaid.

      ANd I would call that particular detail of CG, non-essential.

    I wonder what Melania does all day when she goes to mar lago? Does she lay in the sun? Get massages? Play tennis or golf? I suspect she does the bare minimum required of the wife of a US President.

    • Anonymous January 19, 2019 at 4:04 am

      I don’t think anything is legally required of the President’s spouse. Melania is worse than worthless not only because of her plagiarism but that stupidly expensive rollout of Be Best in May. Remember, she sued the Daily Mail, claiming that she expected to make money from her increased celebrity status.

    Well at least we know mar a lago staff is working,the illegal aliens are use to working with little or no pay

      I went for a run at 3:30 around the mall in DC (I live in the area) and was people-watching all of the teens with “Defund Planned Parenthood” signs that were there for the March for Life while I was running.
      I was actually starting to feel a little depressed at the sight of all these kids that churches and christian schools had bused in from around the country to march for a cause they can’t possibly understand when I got to the Lincoln Monument at 4 o’clock (timestamped because I recorded a video) and there was a crowd there celebrating indigenous peoples from all different backgrounds. Volunteers went up to the mic and told stories about their families, in some cases how they came to the United States, about their respective cultures. And a group of children performed for everyone on drums while a few young girls from the group danced. It was incredibly heartwarming and made me feel a lot better about everything else I’d seen that day.
      And I swear to Christ as I was leaving a saw a small group of these douchey-looking kids lurking off to the side wearing red hats. Couldn’t tell for sure they were MAGA hats at the time but I definitely saw this exact kid in that little group.
      Wild.”

    Given the third wife’s background (father in Yugoslav military and a Communist, then when the eastern bloc broke apart he became a Slovenian car dealer), I think that she’s been compromised since she first arrived on our shores. I’m also suspicious of her parents who got their US citizenship so quickly and secretively and I’m slightly suspect of all the Trump women who were from formerly eastern Europe and/or Russia itself.

    Besides, the third wife is a joke of a first lady. The obscene message on her jacket last year told the whole story. As phony as the day is long but very happy to bilk the American treasury dry.

    Melania Trump ALWAYS looks like she’s posing for a photo shoot. When I saw the pictures from her trip to Africa (don’t forget to have the servants pack your pith helmet, darling), I thought she was trying to copy the Ralph Lauren ad campaign from the 1980’s promoting his new “Safari” perfume. She is as ridiculous as her husband.

  15. Moles January 19, 2019 at 3:39 pm

    I’ve been to Africa four times and I can honestly say I didn’t see ONE person, tourist or otherwise, wearing a pith helmet. Most of the ones in tourist shops are made of styrofoam and so hot they make your head exp[lode.
