How Is That ‘Draining The Swamp’ Going These Days?
Donald Trump so easily swindled voters by saying that once in Washington he would ‘drain the swamp’ and deal harshly with lobbyists. The under-educated in the nation drooled and voted for him.
Deep-pocketed donors face a decision on Wednesday night: whether to dine with the Vice President-elect at the National Portrait Gallery, or enjoy an ‘intimate policy discussion’ with incoming Cabinet appointees at an exclusive dinner at the Library of Congress. The closed-door events, just two of many being held during inauguration week, were double-scheduled by planners. … The cost of admission for the Cabinet dinner is included in a package for either $100,000 or $250,000 to the presidential inaugural committee, while dinner with Vice President-elect Mike Pence is open to donors and corporate underwriters at the $500,000 and $1 million-level as part of multi-day itineraries … The invite states that only ‘select’ Cabinet officials will attend, prompting concerns that only a few lower-profile nominees would be on hand. If that happens, ‘people will be pissed,’ the Trump donor said.
The organizers have so little regard for anything other than hard cash they have the cabinet dinner and the V.P. dinner on the same night at the same time!
