Swamp update: Interior mum on whether Zinke spent $139K on office door
LINK

quote:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Records show the Interior Department spent nearly $139,000 last year for construction at the agency that was labeled on a work order as "Secretary's Door."

A spokeswoman for Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke (ZIN'-kee) did not provide answers Thursday to questions about whether changes had been made to a door in the secretary's office.

Records show the Maryland contractor that performed the work, Conquest Solutions LLC, has done several renovation projects at federal buildings. A man who answered the phone at the company Thursday hung up when a reporter asked about Zinke's office.

Zinke is one of several Trump Cabinet officials under scrutiny for questionable spending. He spent $53,000 on three helicopter trips last year, including one to go on a horseback ride with Vice President Mike Pence.


... Got him now
.... Is Hillary president yet?

Please try other creative responses to this madness.

Edit: Also adding, Whataboutism and Obama

If we don't know the scope of the construction project, how can we be outraged yet?

Your city has a 42% hs graduation rate and you choose to focus on this?

Not that I care about how much money these jokers all waste, but I wanted to stop in and say I appreciate your preemption of the baws' pre-planned responses. It forces them to flex on their feet. They aren't good at that so you get to see some interesting fails.

We have to stick together around here.

I sure wish you Dems were as frugal about government spending when Obama was in office. But you were silent, so i'll log this thread in my "things democrats don't really care about" folder.

Nah, the city I live in has a 93% graduation rate, but nice deflection attempt.

He’s just trying to one-up Ben Carson’s $31,000 office dining room set. Your move Ben!

Honestly I've stopped posting as much because it's just becoming all the same responses.

I don't want to have to troll to get some creative responses, so this is the next best thing.

I have an easy response that you clowns would never do. If true toss his arse out on the street and bill him. If illegal, toss him in jail.

How you like them apples you clown?

If it was just a door, yeah someone needs to go to jail. But as someone who is a prime contractor for Fedgov, I'm here to tell you the label on a PO won't include the entire scope.

Can you post the PWS?

Thanks for your honesty... while we on our this path. Do you admit that (if confirmed) this is a pattern of Trump appointments flagrantly misusing tax payer money? What does this say about Trump's leadership?

I don't give a shite. He has 2000 people to appoint. He has done everything I wanted him to do and more so I love every single moment he is in office and the fact it makes folks like you miserable is gravy. I couldn't care less if some of the hired folk are garbage. If he comes to the defense of some clown spending 100k on a door, it will be disappointing but wasn't it disappoint to democrats that Obama was the drone king, didn't close The Bay and he actually increased the power of the Patriot Act.

Unlike you, I understand I won't agree or like everything my candidate does in office. Since Trump has already done everything I wanted. The rest is the cherry on top.
