    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.

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

      The hilarious thing about this is that the justification for Pelosi was given in the aricle you posted.

      Look up line of sucession......

          Pretty much. This is a case of somebody in an executive position trying to take advantage of it. Pelosi got caught. This guy got caught. She's still in Congress clueless as ever. I don't see why this cabinet member should get any less.

              Again your article stated that she ALREADY had access to a USAF because she was 3rd in the line of sucession, she queried if it could go coast to coast......

              So either you didn't read the article at all, or you read it and somehow missed that pertinant point.....

                  My point is that because someone in Trump's administration did it, it becomes big news and the MSM bashes Trump for it. When a Democrat does the same thing, it is shrugged off as minor and unimportant.

                  I was pointing out the double standard.

                      And again Pelosi was third in the line of succession (and had a plane because the Bush admin thought that she needed one) Price on the other hand spunked 24 grand on a private flight that left with minutes of an airliner going to the same place.....

                        Point being that the action itself is despicable, at best, and should not be done, end of subject..... It's easy and it's moral!

                        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!)

                              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."
