Future First Not-A-Lady Melania and her son Barron Trump won’t be moving into the White House, reports say.
From the NYPost:
The president-elect’s 46-year-old wife and their 10-year-old son are staying put at the family’s glitzy Trump Tower penthouse so that Barron can continue attending his Upper West Side private school, sources told The Post.
So how much is this going to cost us dummies who pay taxes (which does not include the actual Trump family)? It’s basically going to be 2nd WHITE HOUSE! You can figure out that it’s going to be a hell of a lot of $$$ by just looking at the logistics.
The decision to remain in their Midtown home will increase the security presence around Trump Tower — an effort that will involve both Secret Service and the NYPD, an expert familiar with high-level security told The Post.
“That building is going to become the White House of New York,” said Jim Reese, a former Delta Force commander and president of TigerSwan, a global security company based in North Carolina.
“The Secret Service is going to have to keep that whole area cordoned off so that some wacko can’t get close and detonate a car bomb.”
Strict security measures around Trump Tower will remain in place, with two of the five lanes on Fifth Avenue between West 56th and 57th streets closed because of barriers, said officials at a joint NYPD, Secret Service and City Hall news conference Friday.
Following the presidential election, the area around Trump Tower has turned into a traffic nightmare, with West 56th Street closed to traffic between Fifth and Madison avenues, and shoppers having to go through a security cordon and subject to bag checks.
Barron and Melania will each have an unknown number of Secret Service agents assigned to them in addition to a driver and armored vehicle to take Barron to school, Reese said. An advance team of agents will swoop down on the school each morning to make sure it’s safe, he added.
Are the right wing nutjobs OK with this? Didn’t they call Michelle Obama “Michelle Antoinette” for being a “diva” and (gasp) taking a vacation?
Didn’t they want to take Obama’s plane away from him?
But it’s OK to protect a skanky white chick so she can stay in her gold-plated penthouse and make sure her kid stays in his swank private school.
All of this to protect what some (really unethical, none as upstanding as MLH – Ha!) news outlets claim is a former escort and her privileged child.
