ANOTHER LEFTIST FAIL: Petition Against Melania Trump Bombs
Would somebody throw the Left a few life rafts? After all, their Titanic sinks and the water is freezing cold.
Hypocritical leftists continue to whine like stuck pigs. They want to dictate how America’s new president lives his life.
A petition addressed specifically to alt-left Senators Bernie Sanders (D-VT) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has leftists filled with glee. They want the president’s wife to pay for her own security costs while living in New York City.
The Trumps made the decision for First Lady Melania and their son Barron to remain in the Big Apple until Barron completes his school year in June. Afterward, the two join the president in the White House.
The cost of protecting both households is not known. But, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio’s office claims that the city paid $37 million on President-elect Trump’s family security during the transition period. Trump’s got a big family, though. That estimate doesn’t just cover one kid and his wife. It covers all four Trump children, along with their spouses and children. Congress reimbursed NYC about $7 million in February.
Not surprisingly, leftists have become unhinged over the costs.
The leftist-sponsored petition, signed by over 325,000 people so far, demands that Melania move to the White House immediately or pay for the protection herself.
“The U.S. taxpayer is paying an exorbitant amount of money to protect the First Lady in Trump Tower, located in New York City. As to help relieve the national debt, this expense yields no positive results for the nation and should be cut from being funded.”
I beg to disagree.
The positive good from keeping the first family safe is that our president is effectively able to do his job without threat of blackmail, should one of his loved ones be kidnapped and held for ransom. There’s no telling the terrorist threats that would ensue if anything happened to President Trump’s wife or children.
If Michelle Obama had chosen to keep her daughters in Chicago to finish the school year, every leftist would have lined up to support her “good parenting” choice.
But if we are keeping score, what’s the tally on Obama vacations?
The fact is, Melania’s and Barron’s protection will be covered by the American taxpayers. Luckily for leftists, that means mostly conservatives.
I know most Americans are happy to pay for it. The Trumps are America’s First Family, and they represent us well.
As for the petition, based on media reports one would think they would have millions of signatures. They have a paltry 325,000. That’s a far cry from the 65,000,000 who supposedly voted for Hillary Clinton. Keep at it, lefties!
