Javanka Cost Taxpayers $100K Because They Refused to Let the Secret Service Use Their Bathroom
Everyone knows these people have no redeeming value.
But every once in a while we get a peek behind the door as to the depth of this couple’s depravity. How big of an asshole must one be to deny the use of a bathroom in your massive, massive, home, to the people that spend each day protecting you and your family? Just how entitled must one feel to look down upon those whose job it is to guard you?
Were it not bad enough this kind of behavior is just plain … mean. Jarvanka also figured out a way to cost the United States government even more money for no reason at all except to keep the princess happy. From the Washington Post:
Instructed not to use any of the half-dozen bathrooms inside the couple’s house, the Secret Service detail assigned to President Trump’s daughter and son-in-law spent months searching for a reliable restroom to use on the job, according to neighbors and law enforcement officials. After resorting to a porta-potty, as well as bathrooms at the nearby home of former president Barack Obama and the not-so-nearby residence of Vice President Pence, the agents finally found a toilet to call their own.

Do notice that there is no problem at the Obama household both because the Obamas are much nicer people without such a sense of entitlement but also because they know it’s good business practice. It’s a bad idea to anger the people whose job it is to protect you.
But it came at a cost to U.S. taxpayers. Since September 2017, the federal government has been spending $3,000 a month — more than $100,000 to date — to rent a basement studio, with a bathroom, from a neighbor of the Kushner family.
Three-thousand dollars a month for a studio with a bathroom!! We had heard that Washington was one expensive city but holy shit! And how about this, the federal government actually paid $3,000 a month to take a leak while guarding Jared and Ivanka when a free toilet was just feet away inside the house.
If you were instructed to tell the Secret Service, “No,” you cannot use our bathroom, even at the end of a hallway the couple never sees, if someone told you to say such a thing, could you bring yourself to do it? Or would you die of embarrassment and start pointing behind you at the people forcing you to say it.
Seven days, just seven days, and we’ll be rid of this entire mobbed-up family until they pop in the news somehow. But they won’t be in power.
