Secret Service on verge of collapse under strain of protecting the First Family.

Courtesy of The Independent:  

Protecting Donald Trump's family is putting a major strain on Secret Service agents, a senator from the US leader's Republican Party has claimed. 

"They are flat worn out," Jason Chaffetz told The New York Times, adding that more staff were needed to keep up with the demands. 

The agency has seen staff levels drop to approximately 250 agents and 350 administrative and technical staff, but it currently has around 40 per cent more people under its protection than in previous non-campaign years. 

Mr Trump's wife Melania and son Barron are currently living in New York's Trump Tower and agents have also been required to guard his four adult children and their families. 

The US leader has also requested protection detail for aides like Reince Priebus and Kellyanne Conway. 

As a result, dozens of agents have been temporarily pulled off criminal investigations to serve two-week stints protecting members of the first family.

So the Secret Service cannot conduct in depth criminal investigations because they have to split their forces between Washington, Florida, and New York and also protect the likes of Kellyanne Conway? 

Is this what the deplorables voted for?

You know perhaps the first thing that Donald Trump could do to attack the deficit is to insist that his wife and son join him in the White House, like EVERY OTHER PRESIDENT BEFORE HIM!

But instead he guts the EPA and takes 9.2 billions from education.

This is how Trump makes America great again.

    In some ways I don't want the third wife living in the White House. It seems that it would be an affront to the history of the house to have her living there. But, if she's going to stay in her tower in NYC, then Trump should foot the security bill.

    At any rate, it's also insulting that she and Trump seem to think the White House too dowdy a place to entertain dignitaries so they steer foreign visitors to their grossly opulent and gaudy place in Florida so we, the people can foot those bills too. Do the third wife and Trump think the White House staff is not sophisticated enough to handle dignitaries. Of course, the staff has done their jobs beautifully for centuries now.

      Third wife is right, Beaglemom, a First Lady she will NEVER be. I concur with everything you said. This is beyond ridiculous!

      I wish a could remember which website that posted the menu side by side for the president of China in 2015 and the one last night. Multiple people said the menu from last night looked and sounded like a menu from the Sizzler.

      I don't peruse magazine stands, nor watch entertainment shows, so correct me if I'm wrong, but Melania isn't sought after by media much, is she?

      I sure wouldn't buy a magazine with her on the cover, let alone peruse one while waiting to check out my groceries.

      Trump makes money on this! Secret service stays there at our expense. We pay to fly Melania to Mar A Lago.

      What? Our tax dollars are going into Trumps pocket. Our so called President is making money off of us. We pay out a shit load for Trump Tower just so an absent first lady can sit her ass on her gold toilet.

      Can you imagine if Michelle Obama had pulled that kind of stunt? All she is is arm candy for a tiny dick egomaniac.

      Trump has made being President into just a money making job title.if we accept this as the new norm we will never get our honor back.

      You piqued my curiosity. I found menu comparison, and Sizzler sorta sounds like an upgrade.

      Also, too Melaria's parents who were members of the Communist Party back home live in tRump Tower and split their time between there and Mar-A-Lago. I would like to know HOW they can afford this lifestyle, and do WE pay for their flights to Florida? How did they get visas to enter the US? Were their phones tapped at the Tower, since so many Russian mob members live there, or attend gambling parties there.

      Anons at 4:05 pm and 10:04 pm. I just checked the "menu comparison" site also and noticed the complete lack of originality in the FL fare. I also noticed that, in the table photo, neither Trump nor the third wife had the grace to smile for the camera. Everyone else at the head table (why not the lovely round tables used by other presidents?) was smiling, at least politely, for the camera, but the Trump pair looked as grim as proverbial grim reapers. Not so happy together, it looks like . . . .

    "But instead he guts..." AND spends at least $93,810,000 on useless Tomahawk attack on an air field in Syria, which did not hit the runway at all (proven by airplanes starting from said airfield within less than 24 hours after said attack!).
    Some people have said, there were 59 Tomahawk missiles launched, others said more than 70. At a price of $1.59million each, it definitely was a useless exercise, just to show that he is not in cahoots with Putin. (Except, the Russians did not use their defenses against these missiles, which have a very broad radar spectrum and could have been blown out of the sky with impunity...)

    1. It gets worse.

      Trump's hissy fit sets a precedent for him doing whatever he wants without the approval of or even informing Congress.

      The more the media and whoever calls this presidential and congratulates him the more likely it will be he'll do it again. Who next? NORTH KOREA?

      And of course, it is a distraction and misdirection from the investigations. Makes it look like he's NOT in cahoots with Putin. It's basically a red herring to convince the Deplorables that he's not working with the Russians.

      (Except he gave the Russians warning it would happen, and they probably told Assad. No wonder the raid was wasteful and useless.)

    Fuck the Trump family! We should not be responsible for protecting them w/SS that the taxpayers pay for. Reason? They supposedly have billions and can well afford the coverage themselves. So, let them hire their own protection in ALL their locations!

    Trump does NOT represent the majority of Americans and could care less about the blacks, Asians and Mexicans as well as the poor and middle class.

      I think it was another diversion move so that the American people will think that Trump and Putin are not pals. I also think that Putin's ire over Trump's bombing stunt is part of the diversion scam. I hope we're too smart to fall for it.

    Why does Trump have to host every leader at his "Winter Palace" is the White House not good enough for him?. It's our house, the peoples house and by dog he should respect it but he has no sence of history or pride. If that ass could he would gilt everything in gold flake to be just as tacky as his Trump Tower white trash version of money.

    Is he ashamed of the White House? Well real Americans are not. We know what it stands for. I want to see world leaders entertained and welcomed to our Nations capitol which is not Mar A Lago Trumps golf playground.

    That ass needs to know he is supposed to work for us! who the hell is is trying to impress on our dime. Got that Dump, our dime! Trump blows our money like he has a blank check to show off his idiot wife and HIS properties!

    Everyone should write their representatives and senators and COMPLAIN that the moocher trumps are making money from the properties and business trips and WE the TAXPAYERS are getting shafted on the bills for needless security !!!!

    We need to hammer this home, especially when he comes out with a budget that is slashing everything but military spending.

    Also insults National Park service by cutting $1.5billion and hands them a check for $78,000 like he is making a huge sacrifice.
