Donald Trump closed down the federal government over funding for his stupid border wall, affecting roughly 800,000 federal employees over Christmas, many of whom will remain on furlough without pay if the shutdown continues.
But Trump is having his New Year’s Eve party at Mar-a-Lago and he needs party tents for his private party at his private resort for his private guests who are paying up to $1,000 each to attend the president’s private ego-bash.
So who’s footing the bill for those tents? I am. So are you if you’re an American taxpayer. Yes, with much of the federal government grinding to a halt, you and I are paying at least $54,000 for Trump’s tents.
According to government spending data, Grimes Events & Party Tents Inc. of Delray Beach, Florida was paid $54,020 by the US Secret Service on December 19 for “TENT RENTAL FOR MAL.”
Hey, if I’m paying for his fucking tents, the least I should get is an invitation to the party, don’t you think? Of course, were I to have received an invitation, my RSVP would read, “Go fuck yourself, Donald.”
