    If Trump kept his mouth shut on occasion and had not alienated most of the media he would be in another environment. The boy is just to loose with the lip.

    Trump has drained the swamp (of all the idiots that he originally brought into Washington). I like how Bannon is after him now. What's the old saying "hell hath no fury like a biotch scorned"?

    Obama does a flyby of the Statue of Liberty in AF 1 and says he's sorry. The press drops the story.

    Pelosi demands a big jet, gets called on it, and says she's sorry. The press says, "well it really wasn't your fault to begin with" and drops the story.

    Some nobody in Trump's administration uses a military jet for transport one time and all hell breaks loose. "It's obviously time for a major witch hunt and criminal charges for Trump's whole cabinet" the MSM howls...
    Get your facts straight. AF1 flyby did not have POTUS on board.

    But, I also would expect if this were an Obama cabinet member he'd have given us a sincere, heartfelt apology and the MSM would have moved on. The guy wouldn't have been forced to resign over it.

    There is a double standard going on.

    But no! The idiots start pointing fingers and making it all the "other sides'" fault.... (... and ain't OUR party the just cat's MEOW!)

    We really need a different government..... Unfortunately it's one of the better one's going, at present, so we can't just abandon it. (Sigh!)

    GG
    Not really. Our Congress and Senate are among the worst and most uncooperative in recent history, and that's ruining what's left of America.

    Not in this case. We're comparing use of aircraft by purpose and cost with the current Price scandal in the Trump administration. Number of times is secondary to that.

    How much she used the plane is irrelevant to the issue and a red herring.

    There was nary a complaint from the MSM when Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House demanded and got a USAF jet capable of flying her coast-to-coast non-stop rather than her taking commercial flights, or booking a private jet that had to refuel...

    This is another hypocritical BS "Trump is evil" news story.

    http://www.snopes.com/politics/pelosi/jet.asp



    Yea, it got exposed but was only marginally reported in the MSM. They made it out as nothing in particular and a meh story.[/

    Do you ever read your own links? This one looks like you don't which makes the whole post look stupid.

    MOSTLY FALSE
    I posted the Snopes story because they got it wrong. Read what they're saying carefully.

    First they claim the Sergeant at Arms of the House made the request for Pelosi... Ostensibly she never had him make it... or so she claims. How stupid do you have to be to buy that one? Sure, this government employee just decided on his own to do Pelosi a favor, one he wouldn't even know she wanted or needed...

    Yet, Snopes goes right along with it as fact...

    Ultimately it was the House sergeant at arms, Bill Livingood, who issued the request that, if necessary, the Speaker have access to a military plane meeting the non-stop security requirements (not specifically a “larger” plane or a C-32, but simply any suitable aircraft capable of making the California-Washington run non-stop) for travel to and from her home district:
    The only reason Pelosi wanted a coast-to-coast jet was for her personal convenience. There was no reason she couldn't have flown on a smaller plane and waited for a refueling other than she was personally inconvenienced by it.

    How much she used the plane is irrelevant to the issue and a red herring.

    So, while Snopes claims "Mostly False" it is really "Mostly True."
