We All Know Ivanka Is First Lady

According to a widely reported pre-inauguration estimate, New York City was spending $1 million a day on police assigned to keeping the Trumps and Trump Tower safe. In November, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said that he would “begin the conversation with the federal government shortly on reimbursement for the NYPD for some of the costs that we are incurring.” But is it right for federal tax dollars to go to accommodating the first lady’s choice to renounce her usual duties and live in a different city from her husband? Melania and Barron are probably better off, psychologically, not living with Trump—but it’s not taxpayers’ responsibility to foot the bill for their choices.


If Trump is so personally wealthy, let him reimburse New York City for the police who are keeping his estranged wife and son safe. Whatever arrangement Trump and Melania have made regarding how their marriage works, the rest of the United States has no part in it.

Also, what's the additional cost to taxpayers for T-Rump weekending at Mar-A-Lago? And running around the country holding campaign rallies for his next run? The "Thank You" tour.

Can't wait to hear - and by hear I mean read - the whining he's going to do in Kentucky about the Comey/Rogers hearing.

No wonder he has to cut Meals on Wheels.
