Melania traveling in style

Postby Beaver » Sat Nov 17, 2018 3:27 pm

I doubt Michelle Obama needed this much for her trips.

Melania Trump's Hotel Charges Were $174,000 For A Day Trip To Toronto
https://www.yahoo.com/news/melania-trum ... 39763.html

"First lady Melania Trump’s hotel bills for a day trip to Toronto last year added up to an astonishing $174,000, according to federal expense documents reported by Quartz. She did not spend the night. The startling expenditures dwarfed the $95,000 cost of Trump’s stop at the InterContinental Cairo Semiramis, where she stayed for less than half a day at the end of her tour of Africa last month.

Trump’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham implied in an email to Quartz that the first lady’s “advance team” was responsible for some of the costs. The team ensures “safety measures, medical care, communications, motorcade needs and logistics are all in place,” she wrote. They’re all “legally required for official travel,” she added. But federal expense documents reported separate, additional costs for the advance team that added up to $18,000, according to Quartz.

The hotels are not identified in the expenses. They’re listed simply as “hotel rooms” under a heading of “miscellaneous foreign awardees” in the federal expense documents. There are six hotel charges ranging from nearly $12,000 to nearly $49,000, but the documents don’t offer details. (Other charges were for $16,000, $19,000, $35,000 and $43,000.)"

well, that was all liquor . . . an advance team for a resident of the white house probably potentially gets larger everytime someone somewhere goes apeshit with a firearm or petrol bomb so it stands to reason that michelle obama was not *that* far behind, and laura bush not that far behind her, on ad infinitum or until one gets to dolly madison, protected by one fellow with a busted whiskey bottle and a derringer, and sometimes it was president madison himself with a cane gun and a hunting knife . . .

The Deluxe Suite at the former Trump International Hotel and Tower Toronto (now the Adelaide Hotel Toronto) is only $1155 for one night. When President Obama came here in... 2011?... I remember he and his staff occupied a full floor of the Sheraton, and security emptied the floors above and below him as well. The Adelaide has 256 rooms and 31 floors -- that works out to 8.25 (let's say 9) rooms per floor. Assuming they are all Deluxe Suites that comes to... $31,185. Huh. Maybe she rented the spa and the restaurant, too? And asked for the Suckers Back Home Are Paying For It rate?

Do you live in Toronto? She is a snappy dresser, too. Yellow is a good color for her.
