The shear hypocrisy of the far-left stuns me.
The "resistance" is going out of it's way to make it impossible for administration officials to lead normal lives.
We've all seen reports of Sarah Huckabee, Secretary Nielsen, and yes, Administrator Pruitt being harangued by deranged leftists while trying to eat in restaurants
Those same deranged leftists also harangued and verbally assaulted Administrator Pruitt when he tried to fly coach, and the EPA security detail requested that Administrator Pruitt fly first-class for security reasons because of threats against him.
And having made it impossible for him to fly coach, the far-left then attacked Administrator Pruitt for having flown first-class
Let's look at what happened during the obama administration
Records obtained by the Washington Examiner under the Freedom of Information Act show that HHS executives spent $31 million taking 7,000 first class and business class flights between 2009 and 2013, including 253 trips for which a one-way ticket cost more than $15,000.
2014: Federal agencies spend millions on first-class flights
Exceptions for business or first class are made for specific criteria.
The most common reasons across agencies for such "premium" flights in 2012 and 2013 were medical necessities and flights with more than 14 hours of travel time.
Other reasons include special security risks, no coach flights available within 24 hours of arrival or departure time, overall cost savings, unsanitary coach accommodations on a foreign carrier, and a vague exception for upgrades "required for agency mission."
So Obama administration officials flew first-class because of "special security risks."
So WTH is the problem?
You can't have different rules because you don't like the guy in office.
During the obama administration,
HOLDER, MUELLER USED LUXURY JETS FOR PERSONAL TRAVEL
yes, that Mueller
Holder (AG) used government jets to take his family to the Belmont Stakes (part of the Triple Crown)
In 2014, Holder, while attorney general, boarded a government-owned Gulfstream and flew to the Belmont Stakes Thoroughbred horse race in New York with his daughters, their boyfriends and two security officers.
According to records obtained by The Daily Caller from the Department of Justice, that trip cost the government $14,440. But Holder only had to reimburse the government $955 for that flight -- the equivalent cost of a coach commercial airline ticket for each non-law enforcement passenger.
Where was the outrage?
Remember that infamous tarmac meeting between AG Lynch and BJ Clinton. Lynch took a government jet to get there
