And we don’t mean the cost to our dignity of having yet another philanderer in office… who is also an accused sexual predator, crook, and worse.
No, we’re actually talking about taxpayer money!
When Melania Trump decided to skip the trip with her hubby to Switzerland and fly by herself to the Trump Spa in Mar-A-Lago instead, she did so on a military C-32A; in other words, she took an entire 757 trip just to get away from it all.
That round trip flight is estimated to have cost taxpayers $16,168/hour — or $64,400 total!
Of course, that’s a drop in the bucket compared to all the trips she made when she decided to break tradition and NOT move into the White House with her husband right away — the 21 flights she took during those three months cost taxpayers an estimated $675,000. And that doesn’t include the hundreds of thousands spent on extra security for Trump Tower.
They say it’s cheaper being married, but we guess that only counts if it’s a good marriage where no one has to stay apart from one another and pay hush money to porn stars.
