Recent Dog and Pony Show at the White House
Trump donated three months’ salary to the Interior Department (National Park Service) thereby offsetting a huge 0.005% of the proposed Trump budget cut to the Interior Department.
Press secretary and White House nitwit, Sean Spicer, told the press present that the president was donating the $78,333 to the National Park Service, an agency of the Department of the Interior just as he promised not to take a government salary when Mr. Trump said in 2015: “I don’t need the salary – it’s no big deal for me.”
Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke (R-MT) was on hand to accept a check, stating that the money would go to “infrastructure on our nation’s battlefields,” which he said were $229 million behind in deferred maintenance. So, Trump’s drop in the proverbial bucket will help, right, Mr. Zinke? Whoopee…!!!
Keep in mind, however that under the White House budget proposal, now pending passage in congress — actually Trump’s wish list for 2018 government spending, the Interior Department would receive a 12% equally about $1.6 billion.
Simple Math: That amount Trump donates would take some 20,426 donations of the same equal amount ($78,333) just to cover this budget funding reduction amount.
So, now, go and take your family to a nice National Park, enjoy the trip, and when they pass the hat, toss in a couple of bucks, and then thank Donald J. Trump: Our national pitiful money market manager.
Pathetic isn’t it?
