Who of us flying hasn’t tried using our miles or credit card points to get a spouse or friend to travel free. I know we’ve tried it and it’s never quite as easy as it sounds. It’s that fine print that’ll get you every time, like the highly restricted AMEX Platinum card offer. Good luck with that.
Alas, we are just little people and little people don’t get the bennies the elite do. Witness, one Democratic Presumptive Nominee, Hillary Rodham Clinton, who gets HER free ride today aboard Air Force One, tagging along with the President for a mutual admiration society campaign stop in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Hilz has come a long way since the Scooby Van – remember that? The Chevy van that drove her through Iowa?
Funny, she must have realized that week exactly how the middle class actually does live because shortly after Des Moines, she ordered herself a sweet LearJet. A little upgrade.
So now the question is: who exactly PAYS for Hillary’s AF-1 Companion Fare? The Donald wants to know.
Seems it was a fair question. Mark Knoller, who is the default Twitter account for the WH Press Corps responds…
But when pressed on how the fare is calculated and how much the trip will cost Hillary (ha ha ha ha), this…
So the Most Transparent Administration Ever (excuse me, ha ha ha ha) has never released how they calculate fares? So, how about the president’s mother-in-law? She gets to go free? How about when Meryl Steep flew to Africa with the First Lady? Was that free? And of course by free, that doesn’t mean free. The fine print in this sweet deal is that you and I pay. And pay and pay and pay.
Obama and Clinton will be in Charlotte today. One wonders what the city will do with all the homeless I found sleeping along the downtown main streets? Cleaned up enough to hold I’m With her signs?
Trump is in North Carolina today too, Raleigh.
I suspect there will be a race to see who gets to NC first….On your marks, get set, go.
Happy soggy and muggy Tuesday July 5. Have a good one guys!
