Military Families Suffer Under Trumps Shutdown While His Guests At The Gala Rage About Tacky Caviar Service

Caviar wishes and champagne dreams

 

Military families are suffering amidst Trump and the Republican’s shutdown of the U.S. government.

 

The lives of 800,000 hardworking young people who followed the rules, seeking a path to citizenship in the only country they’ve ever known are at risk, living in fear of deportation.

 

A few million children have had their health insurance ripped from their tiny hands, all so they could be used as political hostages by today’s Republican party, but at last night’s $100,000 per couple gala at Mar-A-Lago to celebrate Donald Trump’s first year in office, guests were raging about the truly important issues: tacky caviar service and low budget appetizers.

 

The caviar was served with plastic spoons and the accompaniments were atrocious! 

 

 

 

Mar-a-Lago guests paying $100k or more per couple to attend Trump’s inauguration anniversary political fundraising fala—which Eric & Don Jr attended in President Trump’s stead due to the shutdown—are apparent “traumatized” by scooping caviar with plastic spoons.

The same attendee complained the event was "low budget" and "disgraceful”, sharing photos on Instagram of the low end offerings at the over-priced event.

 

With the Trump family directly profiting from the $100,000 per couple party, it’s no wonder they went low budget. More in the pockets of the guest-of-dishonor, who couldn’t attend his own ass-kissing bash, but still stands to make out like a bandit.

 

From the Washington Post:

By holding the event at his own club, Trump will be able to collect tens of thousands of dollars in fees for food, ballroom rental and other costs. In effect, he will have transformed his supporters’ political donations into revenue for his business.

 

Again.

 

Since Trump began running for president in summer 2015, he has repeatedly used his hotels and golf courses as venues for his campaign events — and paid himself for the privilege.

 

During the 2016 election cycle, Trump’s campaign spent at least $791,000 to hold events at 12 Trump-branded venues: three hotels, seven golf courses, a condo building and Mar-a-Lago, federal campaign filings show. That was on top of millions of dollars more that Trump’s campaign paid his businesses for other expenses, such as hotel stays, meals and rent for office space at Trump Tower.

People join together, near the Mar-a-Lago resort where President Donald Trump spent the last few days,  to condemn President Trumps reported statement about immigrants from Haiti and to ask that he apologize to them on January 15, 2018 in West Palm Beach, Florida. President Trump is reported to have called Haiti, Africa and El Salvador places Òshithole countriesÓ last week, whose inhabitants are not desirable for U.S. immigration.

Back to the deplorables ball, Fox News personality Judge Jeanine Pirro kicked things off with a comment making light of Trump’s racist “Bad wordhole” comment that offended our partners around the world. From The Hill:

“Welcome to Mar-a-Lago, a magnificent place,” said Fox News host and Trump backer Jeanine Pirro, kicking off her keynote address just before dinner on a stage with a shimmering gold backdrop.

“It sure ain't no Bad wordhole.”

Haha! Right? Racism is high-larious for this crew. It’s really no surprise Jeanine Pirro is a big fan of international money launder Donald Trump and his offspring. Her family shares a lot in common with Trump. 

 

In 2000, her husband was convicted on 34 counts of tax evasion and conspiracy:

She came to Albert J. Pirro Jr.'s tax fraud trial, nudging him to fix his tie and shaking her head when he got too friendly with the reporters. Even as embarrassing details spilled out about his illegitimate child and their lavish lifestyle, she remained at his side.

If Jeanine F. Pirro, Westchester county's ambitious district attorney, ever lost faith in her husband, she did not show it. Not even today. She was there again at the federal courthouse, subdued in a coral-hued silk shirt, tan suit and three-inch heels as Mr. Pirro was convicted on 34 counts of tax evasion and conspiracy.

Caviar presentation aside, not a care in the world for these wealthy deplorables.

 

They drank and danced the night away without one single Bad word to give about the people who are being hurt by the shutdown and Trump’s racist policies.

 

When can we expect these wealthy Trump supporters to start trickling down on us with their newfound millions Trump handed them? Probably the same day Trump releases his tax returns.

 

In the meantime, if you are a member of the military, in a military family or one of the millions of government employees and their families suffering from this shutdown, take heart. We value you and we want you back to work as soon as possible. 

 

Meanwhile, outside the event, the resistance was loud and proud.

Paying the soldiers is very important but I wonder of those blowhards in DC  will get paid to not get anything done on this problem. 

Oh yeah, they're going to get their pay. But don't be distracted. This is about more than the Dreamers or military pay. That's where they want the focus. It's about the continuous short term funding resolutions Republicans have used for leverage since they took control of Congress in 2010. That's the biggest deal that is being negotiated behind closed doors. The Dems are telling McConnell and Ryan they are not going to accept anymore CR's. Republicans will have to not only include a DACA protection, but a long term budget on everything from CHIP to healthcare. House Republicans are fighting to prevent that from happening.
