Americans Rejoice as Trump’s Children (Except Barron) Lose Secret Service Protection Today

For the first time in almost five years, Ivanka, Kush, Don Jr., and the Eric Lara team will be on their own, no sitters, no guys in nice suits, sunglasses, and earpieces around. We are all free to guess at which one might miss these men the most. We have our guess, Ms. $1000 a month on hair alone, but we would just be guessing.

From our friends at National Zero:

As of 12:01 p.m. ET Tuesday, United States taxpayers are no longer paying for Secret Service protection details for Donald Trump Jr.; Ivanka and Jared Kushner; Eric Trump and his harlot Lara; and Tiffany Trump. Tuesday marks six months since President Joe Biden took office, and ends the six-month extension for Secret Service protection details his predecessor gave his children and other high-ranking members of his Administration.

Melania’s son, 15-year-old Barron, allegedly Donald Trump’s youngest child, will continue to get Secret Service protection until his 16th birthday in March 2022. Melania and Donald enjoy a lifetime protection detail.

Former vice president Mike Pence and his wife, Mother also lose their Secret Service protection at noon.  The VP’s protection is always extended to six months after he leaves office.

Trump also extended protection to former treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin, former chief of staff Mark Meadows, and former national security adviser Robert C. O’Brien for six months, ending today. 

We find the last three losing their protection to be the most interesting. Normally, Secret Service protection ends at the end of the term. (Except for the ex-president and wife), but Trump extended it as long as possible. We suspect that there is something nefarious going on because those three certainly wouldn’t be a generous move on Trump’s part.

We recall that the Trumps often stayed at their own property, which required the Secret Service to rent accommodations very close, on the same property, and were surely charged the full rate. It makes you wonder.

Twitter was loving it:

Do you think it's ok Jeff Bezos doesn't pay taxes, takes a trip to space and still asks the US taxpayer for $10B?
