Ever since his chosen candidate, Mitt Romney, lost the election, things haven't been the same for poor old reality-teevee nincompoop Donald Trump. All the people from the Romney campaign who pretended to like him are gone. He's back to punching near his weight class, yelling at Cher and Chelsea Handler. His buildings continue to crumble into dust, and his restaurants have become Stygian reservoirs of food-borne parasites.
Nevertheless, there are still new fields of human endeavor into which Trump can blunder like a misinformed idiot, such as the yearly salaries of the CEOs who run celebrated charities! "Do your research before donating this holiday season!" says Trump, who didn't actually do any research.
Yes, for whatever reason, Trump took some time out of his bone idleness yesterday to jump on Twitter and start complaining about the compensation being doled out to the people who run the Red Cross and UNICEF. As per usual, Trump's bleatings were utterly unconstrained from even a nominal obligation to be factually accurate.
The answer to the question, "Where is the outrage?" is "it's been badly misplaced, by an idiot." The CEO of the Red Cross, Gail McGovern, received $501,122 in compensation in 2011, a salary that amounts to 0.01% of the Red Cross' total expenses. According to Charity Navigator, McGovern has provided substantial bang for the buck, earning a perfect rating for "accountability and transparency."
